Curse you, curly quotes! Sorry for the gibberish.

True Story (even if it's a bit late): In the final days of a well-known accounting firm, with 99.9% of the workforce facing layoffs, a partner on a conference call with a remote group of staff and middle managers said, "Maybe you'll have to hold off on buying a new boat or summer home, this year…"

Managers can be detached from reality. I remember an Indian guy who was fired, and the managers told him something like "hey, take it easy! you can always take a year off and relax in a beach resort. Then you could start to work as a contractor or start a new business".
The Indian guy just stared at them, completely shocked, and said "I bet you guys didn't have the slightest notion that I will lose my work permit and will be deported within a couple of weeks".
At the point, the look on the managers' face finally synchronized with his.
