Well, you don't really know the situation. OP might be the direct manager whose boss is a higher guy that decides who goes, but the manager still has to tell his people. But then it would be weird if OP wanted to ask that girl out.

I think he meant "ask her out" as can you clean your office and go out of the building please ? oh and what about a beer tonight ?

I think Op could use this to his advantage. Assuming he does fire her, he could try to make her feel better by asking her on a date.

this made me think of the episode of friends where chandler has to fire the girl he likes so he promotes her instead and just tells his boss that shes a psycho and would be dangerous to fire lol

"I am sorry but do to budget constraints I have been told I have to let you go. *Hands tissue. "The good news is now that you are no longer working at Longfellow, Handcock and Johnson it wouldn't violate company policy if we were to see each other...socially?" *Removes stiletto heel from groin. "Too soon?"

I am sure if you offer to pay for dinner she will still go. Seeing as she just lost her source of income and all.

I think you and the four employees have to complain to HR. It's not your job to fire workers and from the FML, it looks like unfair dismissal for the workers.

Well, OP may be a manager himself, so he may verywell have the authority and the responsibility for firing people. However, OP could explain to his flame that it's his boss that's firing her and he's just the messenger, then he can follow it up with a consoling dinner and a night time massage to sooth her.

37 - Actually, the FML is not so much having to go and fire the workers (though that does suck). What OP is trying to point out by telling us about the people he has to fire is that it sucks that one of those is his love interest :) which does suck, so FHL :(

Make sure to let her know how you feel beforehand and explain that it was his decision and not yours. Let her know how much of a hard worker you know that she is
