If You’re Not Fired With Enthusiasm, You’ll Be Fired With Enthusiasm

If You’re Not Fired With Enthusiasm, You’ll Be Fired With Enthusiasm

I first heard that line from my friend, John H. Play around with the emphasis for a bit to get the real import of that phrase.

I thought of John and his quote when the internet meme was makings its rounds this week saying that a Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer had fired an employee because he wouldn’t say Bing! with enough enthusiasm. (Bing is Microsoft’s search product.) It’s since been shown to be a clever hoax. But I’m always in the mood for a laugh. Here’s that video.

Ex-Microsoft employee remembers the last sound he heard at Microsoft: Bing!

For those of you who wonder how a meme like this gets legs, Steve Ballmer has a history of being…enthusiastic.

Developers, Developers, Developers

And here’s my friend Loren Feldman’s puppet theatre take on Steve Ballmer firing of an employee with enthusiasm.
