Here's a lesson in How Not To Thank Your Former Employer: a 21 year-old hospital employee in Evanston punched his boss in the face after he was told he was being laid off. The incident, as reported by the police to the Sun-Times, seemed rather intense:
"When they notified him of his pending non-employment, he became physically combative, and at that point, he punched his supervisor in the face and ribs, causing him to fall to the ground," Evanston Police Cmdr. Tom Guenther said. "Once he [the supervisor] was on the ground, he then stepped on his face before being stopped by hospital security staff."

Although hospital security was able to withhold the employee from hurting his supervisor further, the employee fled the scene of the incident later on. No arrests had been made in connection with the incident as of yesterday.
