I am eagerly awaiting a layoff in 6 months and hopefully nobody drops another job in my lap (which actually happened last time.).

Be proactive. I went to my boss (as did a couple of others, all independently) and told him, "I get the feeling there may be a layoff happening in a few months. If there is, I want to volunteer for it, right here and now."

He was actually grateful, because that meant he would not have to go through the emotional anguish of telling somebody they were laid off. Most bosses hate hate hate laying off good workers.

Exact same. Even got me the right to work from home for 3 months, the time between coming off of maternity leave and layoffs.

Super grateful.
