Losing your job is the worst. It can mess with your head and your self confidence.

Getting fired brings so any new worries, at a time when you don’t have the headspace to deal with them.

But it’s even worse, when you’ve already got a lot going on.

1. How long is too long though?

Are we talking days? Hours?

What do they think you’re doing in there?

12. If they didn’t immediately get their job back then this one wins them all

13. I feel like there’s got to be a better way to say it

I don’t think I’ve ever heard such awful reasons–beyond the workers’ control–for being let go from a job.
