there will always be a place for you...

Raymond K. Hessel, tomorrow will be the most beautiful day of your life. Your breakfast is going to taste better than any meal you've ever eaten.
me: What the hell is this pink slip doing in my box? By god, if they didn't fire you too...
self: Nope, I got a pink slip too. They're laying us off for the time being while they test out the Phoenix Project.
me: The what?
self: Don't you read your memos? He's been crunching the numbers and decided that he can do both of our jobs with a 5% efficiency loss, at most.
me: That bastard. We're his right hand men, how does he think he'll get by without us to help him make his decisions.
self: Standard middle management mindset: why pay someone else to do something you can do yourself. He thinks he can handle the drama and chaos that is his life on his own.
me: This is what I get for listening to you about being impulsive.
self: ...you're an idiot. You did us all a favor by being impulsive. Have you seen The Boss today? He hasn't stopped smiling. As much as I hate being out of work, you did the right thing.
me: I know. I just wish someone would've told me about this Phoenix Project so I'd have been prepared to be set aside.
self: Que sera sera. How about a game of Gin Rummy for the time being?
because i came here with a load
and it feels so much lighter
since i met you

Finally.
