One way to get laid off

I have been FI for some time and wanting to get laid off. This entitles me to 6 months pay, heath insurance and stock option continuation. The only problem was how to get a package when the company is not laying off?

I mentioned to my manager if I could work from home 1/day a week. Siting that my work place was very distractive and non-productive. He said no - what got to me is that other people in my work group are doing it. Well I said then I will have to find another job.

Bingo - I now get to look for another job within my company till January and then get all the above benifits. After that 30 weeks of un-employment.

I guess the lesson here is that you have to know how to play the system.

Just Trekking thru!

In control,

Welcome. Great story. Glad to have you on board and look forward to your posts.

I would not have anyone adopt my mode of living...but I would have each one be very careful to find out and pursue his own way, and not his father's or his mother's or his neighbor's instead. Thoreau, Walden
