The lights look amazing from here. I should’ve come here earlier. Not for the reason I came today of course. Why don’t we realise things are so beautiful until its too late? My boss would realise soon. Firing me like that, who does that! Only if I could see him after he sees what happened because of his irrational decision.

People look so small from here, like ants. Okay, no distractions. I am ready! He’ll be coming out of the building soon. Time to jump. I hope I land just in front of him.

  1. Youch. Timing is everything! What’s the betting he lands just behind and his boss doesn’t notice and just drives off…

    1. I wish that happens. He is committing suicide for proving a silly point😅

  2. That’s a sad way to go!
    I hope that at least his point gets across!

  3. Let’s hope he has taken the wind velocity and direction into account.

    1. Okay so now we’re discussing the physics of it but not the fact that this guy is going to commit suicide😅

  4. Talk about killing two birds with one stone…!

  5. He should land on top of him! That would at least get the message across!

    1. Hehe! Like Lain said, killing two birds with one stone, errrr, one body! 😅

  6. All the three possibilities have been discussed. I like the one KR suggested.

    1. Hehe. That’s the only way his boss will also feel the ‘weight’ of his decision😅

  7. Dear Shivam,

    A permanent ‘solution’ to a temporary problem. Irrational indeed. I hope he’ll reconsider. Good story, though.

    Shalom,

  8. It is a step above irrational, I fear. I have so much trouble with people who choose this as a solution.

    1. I knew one too. I really don’t understand the thought process they go through before taking such a drastic step. 😧

  9. Your story highlights what is possibly the worst aspect of being fired – the lack of control. If the boss says ‘Go!’ you have no choice, no input. I could imagine someone already unstable resorting to an extreme response like suicide – or murder…

    1. That’s why there is an acute requirement of a positive HR infrastructure to help anyone and everyone during their departure from the company. Thanks for reading!

  10. That’s very drastic. A sad solution to a common problem.

    1. I agree! Thanks for reading! 😊

  11. That would qualify as more than’cutting off his nose to spite his face’ – no lost job is worth dying for.

  12. Gah! Horrors! What a terrible thing to imagine, and his boss might not come out at exactly the right time. Apparently the boss saw some instability in this employee. How sad.

    1. Right. Maybe he should be thanking the boss for getting him out of that job. Thanks for reading. 😊

  13. That was harrowing. I can see myself shouting up if I was there, ‘No, no, don’t do it!’ and knowing my luck he’d probably jump and land on me!

  14. Give a whole new meaning to the exit interview. Irrational does not begin to describe this crazy idea.

  15. Wow! I can think of better ways to exact revenge. His plan could go all wrong and land behind him, when the boss has disappeared into a taxi. And it would have been in vain. Irrational indeed.

    1. It looks like nothing can change his mind now. Thanks for reading and the comment. 😊

  16. Agree with Keith… try to land on top of him

  17. The title says it all – irrational – as he won’t be around to see the outcome of his actions. Grisly story! Well done.
