  1. It’s been so long since you’ve been on the market, you don’t even know where it is.

Laid off: 1–11 Especially #4. And don’t post about your job loss on Facebook, or that guy from fifth grade will ask for the video footage of you getting walked out the door. Or he’ll fall into #8 and try to convince you to sell knives to suburban moms.

Divorced: 1–11 Yes, even #2. The only real difference between dating and working is that it’s legal everywhere for your boss to pay you for what you do. Though many of them would love to get it for free.
