In his 18 years working for Hallmark, Brian Gordon saw plenty of people get fired.
Even so, he'd convinced himself that it wasn't his turn.
"Well, surely Hallmark thinks so highly of me they wouldn't dream of letting me go in a million years," he told Steve Kraske on KCUR's Up To Date.
But in June of 2015, he received an email informing him that his time with the company was finished.
"You would have thought I'd get a card or something," Gordon says.
