On May 1, my position at the U of Chaos was abolished. I was called into a room and my ex-boss and the union turnip were waiting with large brown envelopes in front of them. Having gone through this with my wife a month earlier, it did not take a genius to figure out what was coming,
I think my comment was "Oh shit."
After some management platitudes about "much appreciated work" etc., etc., my ex-boss left and I walked out on the union rep as I have an allergy to hand patting.
