Sometimes I like to use this forum to offer advice based on my years of experience. Like Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, Michael Jordan or Ghandi, I’ve made my share of mistakes. But I learn from my mistakes, and what I learn I feel I should share with you. Who knows - maybe there are those among you planning to someday open a restaurant. Wouldn’t that be nifty? So today we’re going to talk about ending someone’s employment against his or her will - something we like to call “firing.”
Let me first say that it is a personal affront to me that I should be put in the unenviable position of having to fire someone. It makes me uncomfortable and I despise uncomfortable almost as much as I do hazelnut flavored coffee. But I borrowed from football (soccer) a method to communicate my intention and my employee’s fate without even having to say, “Hey, you got a minute?” I call it the skullfire card, and you know the second I hand it to you that you’ll be drinking with Craigslist tonight. Heck, it really puts the fun back in firing, and I can go back to feeling terrific about myself.
