Synonyms of "Fire" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between fire service and fire station and fire department ?
A: "Fire department" refers to the firemen and where they work. Their department consists of firemen, the building, and their trucks.

"Fire station" is the actual building where firemen work.

"Fire service" is a service that fights fires. I don't hear that one often.
Q: What is the difference between We're fired. and We're so fired. ?
A: "We're so fired." doesn't necessarily mean you will be fired, only that you did something that maybe could get you fired. It's sort of an exaggeration, depending on the actual severity of the mistake.
"We're fired." generally means you have actually been fired and it's an objective fact.

a different example of the former would be something like, if you and your brother knocked over your mom's favorite vase and know she's going to be upset. You could say "We're so dead." even though you won't actually die.

but if you were studying for a test the next day and didn't know any of the answers, you could say "I'm so going to fail this test." and that could mean there's an actual chance you will fail, but again could be an exaggeration.

It mostly depends on context, but yeah, "We're so fired." is something people say and makes sense after a mistake. I hope that makes sense lol

A: http://lang-8.com/692412/journals/284553896513378253736560889452918986476

"Dismiss" = I think this is a general word that describes both "fire" and "lay off"
