Thanks Matthew for this one:

Funemployment:  using your state unemployment benefits to enjoy your time off.

My mother-in-law who was (in my opinion) unfairly laid off from the job she loved due to "staff cuts" and not at all related to her being 65 is learning to enjoy her funemployment.  She is looking for work, but not as aggressively as she would be if being at home with her wonderful husband was making her crazy.  She's lunching with the ladies, getting out on her bike and enjoying herself.  (YOU GO GIRL!)

Hypothetically people, if you cite "staff cuts" as a reason to lay someone off, you might want to wait until AFTER they are gone to hire their replacement.  Making the person losing their job because of your "staff cuts" train their replacement makes you look like a dick.  (Sorry, I wanted to clean that up, but it makes me mad...)
