39. I broke up with a woman once.
(OK, she dumped my sorry ass.) Anyways, we were living together and she gave me the heave-ho. I was unprepared (blindsided) so she let me stay while I got some money together and found a new place to live. We even shared most of our meals, went to sleep together, woke up together, looked right through each other, etc... It was a living fucking hell, I'm sure for both of us, even if we were completely civil to one another the whole time.

Every other relationship, before and after, that ended, was done quickly and cleanly, and, in the long run, painlessly. Many of my exes are now friends, years later, but that one... we never spoke or saw each other again, once I finally moved out.

I think that this was a mutual decision, and that MSNBC chose the timing. It is standard corporate procedure to lay off on Fridays. It gives the bystanders the weekend to come to grips with the decision, and then show up on Monday morning ready to pay the mortgage, without doing anything foolish like walking out in solidarity.

Good Night, and Good Luck, KO!
