When the economy went south and took gazillions of jobs with it, I began to hear lots of inspirational advice for the recently unemployed.
“Think of it as a new start!”
“It’s a great opportunity to try something new!”
“Being let go could end up being the best thing that ever happened to you!”
All of which is fine, but I remember actually saying out loud to the radio “Really? Ok, I suppose if you’re a fish, then, yes, being let go is fantastic.”
Writing is rarely that easy, but sometimes you get lucky.
