Review

The creators of PleaseFireMe.com, offer a blasting board for the unhappily employed and weave quirky Venn diagrams and factoids into their manifesto for life in the modern American workplace. --Kirkus Reviews

Even the most despondent of workers won't be able to help cracking a smile at this collection of hilarious tales from the labor front. --Kirkus Reviews

Hilarious. --Times & Transcript

There is an outlet for the employment blues. --Examiner

When unemployment gets you down, read Please Fire Me. Back at work? Submit a post. --Unemploymentality

From the Back Cover

If you work in the kind of place where your boss's door is always open, the coffee is always refilled, and professionalism reigns, then kindly put down this book and throw yourself off something very tall. If years of being frustrated by arrogant douchebags and mental pygmies have left you ready to burn the world to the ground while laughing, then prepare to discover someone actually has it worse.

Inspired by the hugely popular website, Please Fire Me is...

"A venting ground for the malemployed."--Thrillist

"A really funny, bitchy co-worker."--The L Magazine

Read hilarious workplace horror stories and follow the PFM guide to surviving the corporate machine.

"Your boss is illiterate, your co-worker eats her own hair--whine it all out on Please Fire Me."--Details.com

This book is hilarious! I just recently quit a job I hated and feel like I could have written this book -- it is the best. Unsentimental and angry and surreal. Lots of jokes packed in here. I really love the title. I think the best book of this type has enough of an overall theme so that you can see ideas build, but also has enough pay-offs along the way that you could conceivably flip open to any page and enjoy a section on its own -- and this book fulfills that. A great and funny book.

This book is a crack-up. For everyone who thinks his or her office, job, co-workers, cubicle, or boss isn't all he/she/it/they could be, read on: these are real-life people letting us in on how they toil away every day in The Suck. Some people's workplaces are breathtakingly awful - so awful they're hilarious (to us, at least). A previous reviewer complained about the graphics - I wasn't expecting Oprah Magazine slickness from comedy writers and neither should you. The graphics get the jokes across very well; you won't be missing any laughs because they didn't hire a wedding photographer to illustrate it.

It's the kind of book you want to bother people with and show them something hilarious on every page. It's that funny.

I guess you could call me a sucker for workplace humor but I thought this book was great - a lot of highs and very few lows. Love the graphics, too. If you like funny, office-based stuff, then this is the book for you! And I'm not just saying that because one of my posts got published. (Although, who could blame me?) :)

The PFM crew has assembled a great collection of things we all wish we could say if only...

This is a great fluffy read if you need some comic relief from the tragic accurate reality of your own life because, truly, what's better than laughing at somebody else's obvious discomfort to make you forget your own? A delightfully warped walk through the modern workplace. Just the thing to make you remeber your pressed wick drive. (Texas joke - no worse than Oxfired University.)

Unlike other website-based books which merely regurgitate user posts, every page of Please Fire Me showcases the unique humor and thoughtful editorial writing of its authors Jill Morris and Johnny McNulty. Spoiler alert: unless you're the dour, humourless coworker in cube C-17 (yes you Priscilla), you're going to laugh out loud.

Anyone who works in an office or enjoys humour can appreciate this! The charts & graphics are not to be missed, they're eerily accurate. I work in an office for a corporation & I swear I've seen some of these before. Anyway I can't recommend this highly enough, they are just a scream!
