Answer:  FIRED UP

 

(Depending on how long he had worked there, nine months is pretty good.  Especially, by today’s standards.  None of the clue words are new today, but all the jumblings were new to me.  I liked the jumblings of “after” and “pulpit” the best.  Fine job on that answer letter layout, too.  Nothing given away.  Simple, but funny, little cartoon.  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR

    During one of our mergers, I tried to be in the line to be laid off to get the severance packed. “They” would not let me! So I ended up wit 30 years.

    Loved the puzzler, and how nice the guy got a package. For some it is so very tough!

    Great puzzler. Didn’t breeze through the words, but got them all by this afternoon, between errands.

    Thanks all!
