It’s Credit-Crunch Time

, , , | Working | March 12, 2018

(I have recently started a new job, when the news of a credit crunch breaks in the media. A lot of companies are going into panic mode. I am just heading to lunch when my manager calls me to come and see him in his office before I go. I think to myself that this can’t be good. My concern must show on my face.)

Manager: “Oh, don’t worry; it’s all good. Just come in and take a seat for a moment. Now, I’m sure you’ve heard about the financial problems going on at the moment. Unfortunately, we can no longer afford you and have to let you go. Don’t worry about coming back after lunch. We’ll send you two weeks severance pay.”

Me: “Can I ask one question?”

Manager: “Of course.”

Me: “Whatever happened to, ‘It’s all good’?”
