Horrible Gut Feelings That Turned Out to Be True

35. Fired

I got a new job and predicted I would get fired last Wednesday. I was warned by my new coworkers that management was very fickle and often changed directions. The other person I was hired with was fired after a week.

When I started I signed up for an Adobe trial for photo editing (part of my job) while they got me a license. The license expired on Wednesday. My only mistake was I forgot businesses like to fire people on Fridays.

So Wednesday came and went. I decided not to mention my expired Adobe and do other work. Then Friday came, and I got called into the office, and that was that. Fired at lunchtime on a Friday. It was so textbook that I should have predicted it.
