I think my boss just very casually told me that my job is being eliminated. From his car phone, in the midst of some other very trivial observances. "Oh look, there's my old house! I think we need to talk about your future very soon. You should have your marching orders next week..budget crisis, you know. Doesn't look good. Wow, there are a lot of new trees here..."
Excuse me? Did I not recently buy a house and JUST buy a totally extraneous ticket to Ohio twelve hours ago? I am freaking the fuck out. I cannot afford to be unemployed for even five minutes.
And how is "you're fired" an interjection in a monologue about the tour of homes??
Fuck fuck fuck
