I had a boss who brought in a box from home for me to use the day she fired me--and she grinned because she thought it was a thoughtful gesture! She was so inexperienced and incompetent, I had to tell her what to write and what not to write in the termination papers so I could get unemployment. In other words, I fired myself. When she walked me to the car, she told me she had never let anyone go before. I told her she did OK--I felt like I was dealing with a schoolgirl who just competed in her first spelling bee.
