I had a friend who had to fire people all the time in a big Tech Support company. He called it the welder speech.

This is how he would start it :)

"I wanted to be a welder, but just wasn't meant to be a welder, they're just some things in life we weren't meant for, like you Daiquian, you weren't meant for tech support"

yeah i've had to do it, it really sucks. in a corporate environment there's usually a bit of distance between you and the people you have to let go but working for a large local company I knew everyone's freakin life story so it was usually twice as hard :(

Ya, when I was sales. We were brutal. Normally from the sales office the sales manager would pick a couple of salesman to fire and I'd call them to the sales window. Not even in the sales office, just to the window. The whole wall was a thick window with no opening. So they would get up to the window and try to look in because they were outside and I'd point to the guy then give them the blownout handsign that kinda looks like you're holding a straw with first to your mouth ready blowout a spitwad. Or, we'd get them in to the office and give them the old, "Remember back when you used to work here"

But, it's a different enviorment salesman usually don't stay more than a few months at car lot and if you weren't selling at least 10 cars a month or so you were gone.

I've met managers who are afraid to do it for whatever reason, they think the firee will go psycho or something, I guess it's not an easy thing to do
