The job so terrible you can only hope to be fired -- The firing you didn't see coming -- The time you deserved to be fired -- The time getting fired leads you to something better -- The time you had to fire yourself.
This book is a collection of hilarious but true tales from people who've all gotten the ax, the boot, or been canned at some point in their lives. Andy Borowitz tells the story of being fired as a writer for the television sitcom The Facts of Life after being informed that he just didn't "get" Tootie. Dana Gould sums up his firing from the cast of the sitcom Working that led him to become a producer of The Simpsons. Illeana Douglas tells about being fired after a few hours of working as a coat check girl: "How is it possible to be fired from hanging coats? I have arms. I know what coats are. I have experience." With an all-star cast from Tim Allen to Morgan Spurlock, from Anne Meara to David Cross, and contributions from people from all over the country, this book proves it's not the bounce that counts, it's the bounce back.--From publisher description.
