Business had been terrible and was not picking up.
I had to fire somebody and I narrowed it down to one of two people, Debra or Jack.
It was an impossible decision because both were super workers.
Rather than flip a coin, I decided I would fire the first one who used the water cooler the next morning.
Debra came in the next morning with a horrible hangover, after partying all night she went to the cooler to take an aspirin.
I approached her and said. “Debra, I’ve never done this before, but I have to either lay you or Jack off.”
“Could you jack off for now?” She replied. “I feel like shit. If you can wait, I’ll do you at lunchtime.”
I had to let Jack go.
