    ha ha ha then they'll know they can pull the wool over his eyes; they'll probably give him the work of six ordinary men. :D

    I'm trying to get canned, not blacklisted from the American workforce in general.

    Do you still want to preserve your professional rep.?

    Have you considered faking an ailment?

    [QUOTE=quantum;4444074]pretend to go off the deep end and piss on the desk of the person you hate most in the office. maybe a doot in the water cooler also.


    that worked very well in my office. guy "retired" with full benefits/pension, all on taxpayer money.[/QUOTE]

    Water cooler doots are for closers.

    Funny.

    What's even funnier is that you had earlier posted another response to my post, then went back and deleted that response, then posted this winner.

    Frankly, the first response was funnier.

    But, all that aside, you're only two options are to get laid-off or quit. You seem too smart to be laid off, so you're going to have to quit. Not the end of the world, you'll land on your feet.

    Have you considered coming to work dressed as a mercurial yet enigmatic clown?

    Quitting is not an option b.c you would lose your severance and other entitlements? Trying to milk the unemployment train before it runs out :P;)

    Is your job production based? If so, make them realize that it is more expensive for them to keep you employed. Firing you would be addition by subtraction.

    Are you married? Tell your boss you are having difficulties at home with the children and that it makes more sense for you to become a stay at home parent then your wife. Ask for the package and see what they say.

    Hey, never underestimate long-term disability. Every morning around coffee-break time I casually stroll through the pen where all the accounting cows gorge themselves on second-breakfast, hoping for the stray grape or banana peel or spilled Mountain Dew to cross my path, leading to a dramatic and clearly-seen-by-everyone slip and fall, resulting in a hard to diagnose yet even harder to deny incapacitating soft tissue/muscle injury.
