My boss wants me to quit but I want to get fired and collect unemployment, any tips? LOL

Hi everyone, if you read my last post, you know that ive mentally checked out of sales and am focusing exclusively on my side business and hobbies


So my manager has a talk w me today where he essentially said, hey its ok if ur not a good fit it happens, what do you think?


I was like, yeah im not a good fit, but im not quitting.


And he was like ok sleep on it and let me know tomorrow what you want to do


Help me sleep on it ladies and gents


How are you getting fired professionally? lol


Also side note, im hoping to get preapproval for a 100k line of credit to get my first house here and need to do that before I get fired. I know I know, I'm wild haha


Cheers Savages


Yours truly

I'd pretend to try. I wouldn't quit. Actively start looking though

I'd def wait to get fired. Not to make your day worse but losing your job may throw a wrench in your loan approval if you don't have other income or assets. Maybe compromise with your boss to keep you on until you get the cash...?

Yeah right on, i was thinking just that, should be able to get approved and then its a super small payment like 300/month plus renting out the other two bedrooms and 750-500 unemployment a week should be chillin

Just so you know, you won’t be able to close on the loan if you don’t have a job… the pre-approval means nothing. Not trying to be a downer, but you’d need to hold on to the job until you close

You keep doing your job the way you have been doing it, if you are doing things right he would not find a reason to fire you and if he does ,you can report him for harassment in the workplace

Make them fire you but don't do anything that's truly awful.
