You're moving the goalpost, now it's only CEO's don't get fired, a minute ago it was no one in business ever gets fired.

No, no I am not. I am using CEOs as examples because they are high profile and it's easy to look at them - Johnny QA being fired never makes headlines.

But, to your point, in my first paragraph I say "President and VP," neither of whom are CEOs, and in my second paragraph I say "People," who certainly aren't CEOs. Even with you beating my edits, which mention people being fired below the c-suite, it should be pretty damn obvious that I mean in general. Corporations rarely call someone in and say "sorry, you aren't cutting it, you're gone." Personal misconduct? Yes. Poor performance? No. They shuffle those people around until there's a round of layoffs.

Only my second to last sentence says "CEO." It isn't my fault you can't read and project that to all the lines you read before.
Can someone else support me on this?
