Hi guys,

Can you please help me again with the next conversation? Context: Ex-Employee is complaining to his ex-supervisor. His ex-supervisor is a woman and she was the one who fired him.

Ex-Employye XY: I'm just a line item on a budget for you, and that's about it. I'm XY, $47,000 a year, plus benefits.Hey, wait, the way I figure it ( little sarcastically, he's probably imitating her ), you get some kid in here, pay him half that, and no benefits 'cause he's part-time. Hey, where do I sign? I can't get there fast enough.( He's probably imitating the reaction of the guy, who got that kid, but I don't understand to this reaction at all....??? )

His Ex-supervisor: You think I like firing people? You think I enjoy it?

many thanks in advance...

Best Regards

He is saying to her that he has suddenly understood her motives - she wants to hire someone who will work part-time and for for less money. He is undoubtedly angry.

Feebs thanks!!! It's much more clear to me now....Now I just have a problem with that last two sentences....Hey, where do I sign? I can't get there fast enough. Please, what did he mean by that? I still don't get the meaning of these two sentences...:-(((. But the previous one are clear to me now, thanks to you..:-)

Best Regards and thanks
Hi guys,

Please does someone understand what that last two sentences mean? Feebs11 hit the right meaning, I'm pretty sure that he did, but I'm not sure what "Hey, where do I sign? I can't get there fast enoughmean"...Emotion: crying Does it mean "Where should I go now? I won't be able to arrive there in time. (That guy is old man)" ???. Please guys help, I have been thinking about that two senteces for the whole day and I'm still pretty out there..:-((. I provided maximum context.

Best Regards and thanks in advance.
It's rhetorical. The person is still sounding off about being sacked. He is saying what he thinks the part-timer would say if offered the job.

Thanks Feebs!!!!! I think I got the idea now..:-). So the part-timer is saying....

Where do I sign? = Where do I have to sign the contract?

I can't get there fast enough = I take this sentence as that the part-timer is really looking forward to work there....Typical example, which I found on the internet...

I am planning to move to Peru (I can't get there fast enough!) and was curious about a couple of things....

thank you again
