Screw pride! It’s better to be fired (in the eyes of the Unemployment Agency).
And what about my pride? I have none. I’ll prove it once again by shamelessly asking you to like Casually Employed’s Facebook Page.
I like the flame between Clive and Mr. Nistad, it really sets the tone
Thanks Joe! I spent a lot of time with the placement of the word balloons. Once I was finished, I knew I needed something for the bottom. And there you have it!
There went that dog, anyway…
Yep that’s a good point. Never quit if you need to apply for unemployment benefits. Looks like it may need to convince Tyrone to put him on full time at the hobby channel
Obviously, Clive never went to business school.
Love the face-off panel haha
Thanks Jared! It was a long time coming.
Oh boy, what’s next? Funny today.
Thanks Hunter, I’m glad you liked it. I waited a long time for these two to finally go at it.
You should have put Catch-22 and two together, Clive!
If Clive was any good at equations, then he’d still be in bed!
If you’re fired you can sue them for wrongful dismissal, too!
Now you’re talking!
The realization face at the end is priceless.
Thanks Guillermo! Facial expressions is one of my most favorite things to draw.
I was thinking the same thing in panel two as panel three ended haha
The moral of this story is…
“Never Quit. Get Fired Instead”.
Not only is quitting dumb when someone is trying to make your job difficult or trying to create an environment that makes you want to get out… the employer, in court, will generally be CRUCIFIED (in the USA) for doing so *IF YOU HAVE A GOOD LAWYER* – who understands and has successfully pressed for rectification (defined as you wish) for their clients for what is known in the industry as “Constructive Discharge.”
I spent many years in that industry until I started reading web comics. Then the bastids started harassing me, making me wear matching cartoon jammies over my suit or jammies (with feet) that had pink unicorns on them. They caused my computer to require 20-30 refreshes to finally get comics to fill the browser window, and the last straw, was replacing my 30″ monitor with a 320×200 dumb-phone monitor attached to my 12 core Xeon work-station.
I took them to court, subpoenaed that monitor and wore the silly Japanese jammies they forced me to wear – and began suing their arses off!
(It was eventually settled out of court because 3 juries later & 7 weeks, all had been wasted – because nobody could stop laughing the entire 8 hours every day, as soon as I got to the part in my opening statement about the jammies! I got cash, punitive damages and a year’s supply of jammies that FIT!!)
All’s well that ends well!
I’ve never really understood how that worked. I always thought that, if you got fired, there’d be no way to claim benefits. I’m still trying to figure that out.
Years ago I had a call from the unemployment agency about someone who used to work for me. They asked me why he was fired. I said because he stopped coming to work for the past three weeks and didn’t call in or return my phone calls. I never heard anything after that. So I guess to collect unemployment, it varies depending on the circumstances of your termination.
