This was one of my first posts in January 2015 when I made these posts more frequent than the previous years. It’s a simple premise, Regular Vince has selective dyslexia and uses it in a way which garners weird responses. In other words trolling.
It’s at that point in time where I’m not happy with my job and I’m somewhat looking for a reason to get fired or be “unjustly let go” and get paid for it after. The company is in harder times and they’re having a “caselot sale”. For some reason, I kept reading it as “closeout sale”. So if there’s a retrenchment package that I can take advantage of right away, I’ll totally take it. Comic strip details the rest.
Getting fired isn’t fun. One deals with the emotional trauma and the feeling of abandonment and rejection. It’s like a breakup but from the one that gives you money for your time. In a way there’s some investment the longer one stays at a job. I guess if I’m gonna break up, I’d rather be the one doing it rather than the other way around. And it’d also be nice getting paid for it.
Breaking up on the other hand, nobody gets paid and everyone seems to be bitter for a while. It’s a crappy feeling.
