Today, while trying to get my boss to reconsider laying off much of my department, I accidentally convinced him to lay me off too. FML

  • I imagine the conversation went something like this:

    OP: Boss, you can't lay off that many people in my department!

    OP's Boss: Give me one good reason why I shouldn't.

    OP: If you want to, you'll have to lay me off, too!

    OP's Boss: Ok, you can join them.

  • Unfortunately you brought it upon yourself. If he's laying off people, then you'd usually want to avoid being on his mind when he's firing people. But nevertheless, props to you for standing up to him.
