Another conversation with my doctor

That woman cracks me up.

Dr.K: How are you, Marci?
Me: I'm getting laid off.
Dr.K: Great!
Dead silence for a moment
Me: (Laughing) Not exactly the reaction I was expecting.
Dr.K: That job wasn't good for you. You're smart, you'll get a better job. I expect the headaches are gone?
Me: Just one this last few weeks.
Dr.K: Yeah, and the depression gone too?
Me: Pretty much, yeah.
Dr.K: See?
Me: Well, fine.
Dr.K: You're not upset about it, are you? No, of course not.
Me: Not really, no.
Dr.K: And why should you be? They don't appreciate you. Companies don't appreciate their employees these days. They work them hard for 20 years, then replace them with cheaper labour. You were there a long time, right?
Me: About 5 years.
Dr.K: It's a good change. Do you need any drugs?
Me: Nope.
Dr. K: Excellent. See you in 3 months.

Okay, so it wasn't quite that short, but yeah, that was pretty much the conversation.
