I was calm, cool and collected the day I got the pink slip (minus the five minutes of crying I did in the stairwell with a co-worker), but sometimes I wish I had had a "SHOW ME THE MONEEEY!" type of meltdown. You know, just to make a statement. From what I've heard, the mag I was fired from has already hired and fired two other reporters (in a six month period), so it's easy to be forgotten. I want to be remembered--even if it is in a whoa-that-bitch-is-crazy kind of way.
This scene in Jerry Maguire is definitely my favorite. Genius. Well, Jerry and I have one thing in common: We both got royally screwed.
I love the part when he announces that he's taking Flipper with him. I can actually do a fairly good impression of Tom Cruise in this scene. I may decide to put it on video some time in the far, far future, but I'll have to think on that!
So what about you: If you got fired, what do you think your exit would be like?
