We’ve all had work days in which we wished we’d be asked to leave and never come back. Then comes the hard-hitting reality that unemployment is about as bad as it gets in the professional world. Phoenix resident Amy McClenathan, who is still heartbroken over the loss of her mother, learned this lesson after updating her Facebook status with the confession, “I wish I could get fired some days, it would be easier to be at home than to have to go through this.” Whether you’re Facebook friends with anyone from work or not, a comment of this nature never brings anything good, and McClenathan wound up losing her job.
“It was a very small sentence, but it was one of the most powerful sentences I’ve ever typed in my life,” she said, adding that she’d posted the remark around the one-year anniversary of her mom’s passing. You’d think she’d get a pass, but the woman was asked to leave the day following her Facebook status update.
