two of them: 

 

"Man now thats a real shame, looks like somone threw away a perfectly good, non-protected class, middle aged, male US citizen engineer - who would have seen that coming?"

 

or 

"Im sorry, Corporate has asked me to guard this dumpster to make sure none of you engineers can repurpose this equipment.  Im making sure it gets sent to China for proper electronics recycling so we can meet our RoHS, Reach, lead free, dolphin safe, and citizens for a gluten free world initiatives - so sorry, you cant have anything.

Who said ageism doesn't exist at this company? I just turned 40 and they threw me on the trash heap while hiring new graduates and H-1Bs to replace me.
