I had taken a job at a small radio station. It was early in my career. I arrived for my first day and came in to the main lobby. The program director for the station met me there. He told me to wait just a second while he took care of something. He went in the control room and FIRED the guy I was replacing. Then, he led the newly terminated employee past me in the lobby. When the guy was out the door, he took me to the control room and said something like, “Song’s almost over…” and went back to his office.
