How to deal with rejection

A long long time ago, there was a joke making its rounds via the email where a guy politely declined to be laid off.

Don't know if my boss read this joke or not but today when I gave notice he told me he'll call me back and tell me where my new assignment is going to be.

Miscommunication or a great way to deal with rejection? I guess I'll have to wait and see.

There are words coming out of your mouth, but they make no sense.

I hope you jest.
Let's try again. I quit my job. My boss's response was "I'll find you a different assignment" - i.e. he refused my resignation.
Maybe if you read the original joke, my post would make more sense?

I'm putting his thoughts into writing ;-)
