    Slick Vik: The reason we're having this conversation is your position is no longer available.

    Former Citi Employee: I don't understand. I'm fired?

    Slick Vik: Hearing the words "You've been let go" is never easy. Change is always scary, but consider the following: anybody who ever built an empire or changed the world sat where you are now. And it's because they sat there that they were able to do it.

    Former Citi Employee: But what happens now?

    Slick Vik: This is the first step of a process that will end with you in a new job that fulfills you. Yeah, but how does it work? Take the packet in front of you. Review it – all the answers you're looking for are inside.
    Start filling out the necessary information and before you know it you will be on your way to new opportunities.
    Now, I need you to go back to your desk and start putting together your things. As a favour to me, I'd appreciate it if you didn't spread the news just yet. Panic doesn't help anyone.

    Former Citi Employee: I understand.

    JPM's hiring. See previous DB item. Good luck.

    One spot vacated by a tool that can't keep his shlong in his pants? I don't think so.

    Personally I prefer to enter the room and ask if we are here about the promotion I was up for before they even get to fire me.

    Saturdays and Tuesdays. Now, for bonus points, can you tell me what you think S&Th stands for??

    That puts some context on the ".. and apparently more to come." ending to that story. Not that one would suspect a meaning any other.
