And consistent measured management is the key to success.
I wonder if you could use "You're fired" when dumping a wife or girlfriend.
Sounds more satisfying than "We've just grown apart".
I worked the in the "system" for 22 years.. i have seen this behavior many times.. what gets me most is when they blame everyone or thing else other then themselves!
i can see it now.. "Here's your pink slip!"
Former spouses negotiate a buyout package. Wonder when prenups will have these.
split hairs. If you say that someone is splitting hairs, you mean that they are making unnecessary distinctions between things when the differences between them are so small they are not important.
Words mean different things, but in this case, firing has a meaning and we aren't in the position to fire the people who pay us. that's an oxymoron.
I know it makes us feel better and more important when we use the word, so if you want to call that a better means of communication, fine, i figure it's more of misuse of the word.

It's grammatically a misuse I agree but, like slang, I'm fairly lax about language. If the listener understands the context and meaning the speaker is trying to relay it seems a little pedantic for someone to "correct" them.
In the context of "firing" a client for example, the phrase obviously expresses a lot of emotion and sentiment that other people who've been there can relate to. It might not accurately represent a definition written in dictionaries but in the context of one business owner relating to another there is a consistent understanding about what they are trying to express.
