How To Lose Two Jobs In Two Weeks?

"We'll have to let you go," was the one sentence my new boss uttered that kinda like turned my world around. How can one person lose 2 jobs in 2 weeks? First was a lay-off, second was me getting the axe from my boss.

I can't help it. They thought I wouldn't need any learning curve for my job. They thought marketing people know a whole lot about creating online video games. They thought I could figure everything out right away.

"I can only be effective only when our game is up so that I can start marketing," was one of things I told my boss when we had our conversation at around 5 o'clock in the afternoon last Friday.

My boss realized that he wasn't looking for a marketing guy but he was looking for a web developer. Marketing and Web Development are two darn opposite things. "You can hire the best marketing guys from McCann or Saatchi and Saatchi and they wouldn't have any idea how it would be to put up an online PC game," was another statement I gave him during our talk. They judged me for two days worth of work. And then the axe.

How to lose 2 jobs in 2 weeks? Follow my example.
