You’re Fired! No Wait Not Me I’m Fine Sorry If That Scared You.

Since it sparked a lot of interest, I got a few more details on what it means to get fired when you’re at the South Pole. It means you are on the next plane out. Over the winter, that can be a very long time. Oddly, you still collect pay at the lowest grade available. I expect it all becomes very uncomfortable.

In the summer the next flight is often pretty soon. But people tell me that sometimes the person in question doesn’t get old he or she’s been fired until the plane in question is ready to go. “You have an hour — pack.” That sounds pretty uncomfortable, too, but in a different way.

  1. Does getting fired make you old or keep your from getting old. I’m having trouble parsing your next to last sentence.

  2. Wow, probably doesn’t look good when you get axed from the pole! It seems like a small world to hang out in when one gets fired and is just waiting for the next plane- yikes!
