Friday Firing, Part III
"Boss, phone for you."
I went to the phone, and picked up the handset. It was the employee that I had fired before. (That's right, sports fans, I had to fire someone twice.)
Really, who has to fire someone twice? I mean, sometimes the terminated employee returns to the workplace...with a Glock, or an AK-47...intent on shooting up the place. This guy returned to the workplace to...work.
"Boss," he said. "I was wondering if it would be all right if I came into work today."
"What? No, I don't think it would be all right."
"Why?" he said.
"Because, I already let you go...twice."
Or, as Coach Red Beaulieu said, "You're fired."
