I jokingly told my manager "I quit" via email (it was longer than that) as an April Fools joke. We get along pretty well normally.
Well, it seems my joke was taken a bit too seriously as I just got an automated email from HR with checkout procedures and an invite to a few "checkout" meetings later this week as well. My company has also been letting a lot of people go recently so I am worried this is an excuse to have that happen to me.
I can see my manager responding in a like fashion but the HR communication worries me. He is also on vacation this week so I cannot ask him directly (which would be ideal).
- How can I determine if I am actually being fired or my boss is just playing along?
