STOP! Do you have a Pose Player? If you don't, go here and get one. Poses are unusable without a Pose Player, so if you skip this step now, you'll be sorry!


*Compatible with the "Pose List" feature of the newest Pose Player!*

Ah, corporate life. Is there anything more soul-sucking than working in an office in a tiny, impersonal cubicle that you're not allowed to personalize? How about the sad attempts at happiness such as the disgusting layer cake that's trotted out on the boss's (and ONLY the boss's) birthday, or the post-holiday gift exchange? Miserable prospects all, but there's always something worse--that day the boss tells you to come into the office "and shut the door." Yup. You're being fired. Or released, or let go, or downsized, or deployed, or whatever they call it nowadays. Fact is, you don't work there anymore.

Pose tags are as follows:

a_splad_pinkslip1 -- boss pose, arms folded. Scowling.
(Note: This pose only really works with ladies and relatively slim men. Bigger sims will get hand clipping. I tried for a while but couldn't see a way to resolve that issue. Really sorry. Pose is also unusable with longer skirts--the stance makes the mesh warp.)
a_splad_pinkslip2 -- employee pose, clutching stomach and holding head with hand.
a_splad_pinkslip3 -- employee pose, feeling awkward--the classic "bless yo' lil' heart" face.
a_splad_pinkslip4 -- boss pose, shrugging. Awkward face.
a_splad_pinkslip5 -- employee pose, slapping head with hand.
a_splad_pinkslip6 -- employee pose, squatting. Scowling.
a_splad_pinkslip7 -- employee pose, sitting on the ground. Scowling.
a_splad_pinkslip8 -- employee pose, sitting on the ground. Scowling.

Poses 6-8, as you can probably guess, also don't work well with skirts. Although the sim is holding Rosesims's cigarette, the poses look fine without it. But really, when you've been let go after giving your heart, soul, blood, sweat, and tears to THE MAN ... maybe you deserve a smoke?

You may have to use "moveobjects on" to place the sims in position. If you using multiple sims in one shot, once you cancel, the sims may lump up together. This is okay! Just direct the sims to walk away and all will be well ... until they go postal!
