Today, I saw my boss, so I mentioned to him, "Oh, I quit." He then interrupted, saying, "Great, I was going to fire you this week anyway." I wanted to tell him I quit smoking. FML

So tell him that you were referring to smoking, not your job; that way you still get unemployment benefits (if applicable). (Also, find out why he's firing you so that you can correct that issue in your next job.)

"Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit smoking."

That story also made me think of “Airplane.” Hey, youngsters, look up that movie — see what we old farts found hilarious.

I want to disagree with you on the "old farts" thing, but my bad back won't let me.
