Well, getting fired would allow you to apply for unemployment. That’s the only upside I can see. I think my pride would be hurt if I got fired. Never been fired before. <knock wood>I’m hoping for a layoff, myself, at some point. Most people at my company are offered 26 weeks of salary and paid COBRA in a layoff, which have been very rare. My company also pays a retirement bonus of, I think, $500 for each year you worked there. Maybe it’s $250. The couple people I know that got laid off close to retirement age got the bonus, too. Rather have the cash than a gold watch!!
