When you get laid off from your job, they give you a box to put all your stuff in. At my last job, these boxes happened to be white in color. We would also attribute the white box to a planned day of lay offs. Ex. "White Box Wednesday" was a day when a bunch of people were laid off.
I can't believe John was White Boxed yesterday, this job will suck without him around.
