Worst roll off story?

What about worst "trapped" story where you couldn't roll off


Currently trapped, someone send help pls


Client refused to acknowledge the roll-off, kept emailing me at my company’s email, asking for revisions to slides


We went for a team outing and all of us were happy drunk. On the elevator back to our hotel rooms, my manager told me that it would be my last day and I can take a flight home the next morning 🤷🏽‍♂️ (Later got to know it was more of a budget issue, but was super frustrated with the way it was delivered!)


How about when it’s the Thursday of the last day of your contract and the client’s procurement team is still asking a million questions about the extension, so it’s still unclear if it’s happening...


Had a roll off party, got a nice gift from the team... everyone had fun. Next day got extended


We had a client audit going on, where they brought in another team to check the financials of the program, risks, and assess competency of the teams involved. One of our teammates was just the most oblivious, and when we warned about this going on and everyone to be careful about what you say to whom, he then went and talked casually to the audit lead, not knowing who it was, at the bar and basically aired all the dirty laundry (these contractors haven't shown up to any meetings, so and so is incompetent, z doesn't know the software, I don't even know why were doing this) type thing. Rolled off that day

@D1 that’s the worst!

Was rolled off due to performance. If I do well on the next engagement is it too late to rebound before year end?

Really confused what to do as I've been on bench for 3 months now with no learning opportunity and don't know what kind of projects I might get ahead and what about the wlb as compared to PharmEasy. Some insights will be much appreciated :)

Indians and Indian-Americans - do you guys get offended when people refer to Asian and mean specifically East Asian (China, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, etc)?
