    CELEBRATE! You're Fired!

    Even though I wrote a story for this book, I CAN BE OBJECTIVE because my contribution is only two pages. (The best two pages, by the way.) This book is a PERFECT gift for any friend or coworker who has just been fired and is not thrilled to bits about it. (The last job I was fired from, I WAS thrilled to bits because I had already taken another job and was facing the prospect of 'calling in sick' until all my sick days were used up, but that's another story for another book.) Anyway, this might also be a great gift for employers to give out as a parting gift to the employees they are about to fire. 'Fired!' will make your fired employees feel like they have finally joined the ranks of the Truly Talented and Funny people who have fired stories to tell - and it might make you feel as if you have given them a promotion instead of a kick in the pants, so it's a win-win kind of gift. This book will help the fired feel as if they are in good company (FABulous people have written their fired! stories in this book!) and that they can overcome the firing to be happy, productive and funny people, with a good story to tell -- which is what life is all about anyway, right?
