The Meeting

The message was short. “See me.”

The meeting was short. “You’re not meeting expectations. You’re project is not nearly on schedule. You’re taking way too many sick days. Today is your last day of employment with this firm. Security will meet you at your desk. Please turn your badge and files over to them. The number for the unemployment office is 1.800.5512. Good luck in your future career.”

His cell phone rang and the voice mail from his wife just said “See me!”
