You have our sincerest condolences on the loss of your job. You must be devastated.
I expect you will want to spend the next few years in counselling to get over the termination. That sort of experience can take a long time to overcome.
Oh yeah, and YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!
Pretty close to the deal I got, although mine was voluntary and therefore I was able to get by without any further ado. I got a years pay, prepayment of bonuses, a bunch of other accelerated benefits. I even got the 'free PC' the company had promised to all employees and then never delivered on. Ironically, only the people who took that particular buyout package got the computer.
My boss flew in to finish up the paperwork on my 'last day'. I had him meet me at a local bar where I showed up in a hawaiian shirt, shorts and sandals. 99% of the people in the bar were coworkers as it was the nearest to the place. We sat at the bar while he handed over my checks. The bartender, a good friend of mine, says "Whats up TH?" I say "My boss is firing me". He thinks I'm kidding for a minute then says "No way! What did you do?" "Many, many things. Evil man" my boss says. I show him the severance checks...he says "Holy cow...willl you fire me next?".
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
