Have you ever accidentally found out that you were about to be fired?

I was fired on payday. I checked my paystub and it was off. There was an additional payment with a weird abbreviation that I didn’t recognize. Svrc+Vac Pmt. I was busy so I finished up the part I was working on before it hit me.
I went into my supervisor’s office to ask about it and she was really upset that they sent this out before she could talk about it. She was also upset because this came down from corporate HQ. Nobody here had any choice about this. My position was being eliminated.
Fortunately, I got another job before my severance ended, so it worked out okay. In fact, it was pretty good as there were a lot of changes in the department. Ex-coworkers let me know about how micro-managed it had become. I was hearing tales of people regularly breaking down in tears in the office.
I dodged a bullet.
