We've all been there at some point or another - that moment of dread when you just know the proverbial axe is about to fall at work. For me, it was anytime my boss would ask me to show someone else what I'm working on/how to do it.
Twitter recently had a trending hashtag of #SignsYoureGettingFired, where users shared the omens of an imminent termination that they've been unfortunate enough to see (plus a few jokes, for good measure).
Your job approval rating as President has NEVER reached 50% a single day during your first term. #SignsYoureGettingFired— Fernand R. Amandi (@AmandiOnAir) August 22, 2019
This Hashtag was a coordinated attempt from bosses, to find out if their employees are using twitter during work hours— Dj lil nut (@Djlilnut1) August 22, 2019
#SignsYoureGettingFired If you tweeted this during work hours
1. Your boss stops speaking to you and cancels 1:1s— Matthew Bradburn (@Brdbrnm) August 22, 2019
2. Your boss starts micromanaging you
3. You get removed from decision making
4. Your boss told you that you were doing fine at your last review...
Number 4 is unfortunately very common...#SignsYoureGettingFired

Donald Trump calls you good, strong, smart, committed, or confident and he hires you.

There's a goodbye cake in the fridge at work with your name on it
Now get back to work!
