Good thing you didn't work at Weight Watchers or you might have gotten downsized? Or for a hit man and be eliminated from the work force.

But maybe if you worked in a NASCAR pit crew you could have happily just retired?

That is bull, my dad was, "layed-off" and before he was, he had to teach a young kid how to do his work. In the end, he was, "layed-off," and a whole buch of younger, lower paid people took his and his co-worker' place.

So it IS the employers fault.
As you already know (because you put quotes around it), that was not a lay-off. That was a crime.

Cashiered? :confused:
cashier - verb - to dismiss with dishonour from the armed forces [Latin quassare to quash]

At least you didn't work for a chicken farmer and get layed-off.
Or for that matter a trash compactor company and get squeezed out of your position.
Or a mathematician and get rounded off.
Or a divorce lawyer and get separated from your employment.
Or an arms dealer and get surplussed.
Or a pimp ...
