    just because someone gets fired doesn't mean it is because they did something wrong (I have no ides why this person lost their job) but lord knows I've been fired MANY a time because of the CA education budget.

    Wouldn't that be being laid off, downsized, or losing your job? Don't know if the OP has the same set of connotations for the word fired that I do, but where I am saying you were fired carries the implication it was deliberate and for a reason by the employer (even if that reason is open to debate, as in "fired over bullshit reasons").

    Yeah, definite congrats to the OP. I've been out of work before (most recently for quite a long time actually), and I know it sucks ass. However, I found something good not too long ago, and I'm glad to hear that I'm not alone in that. :)

    Its complicated. I'm prone to anxiety attacks, I was having one, someone decided to be rude to me and I bit back metaphorically speaking

    Then surely you had room to challenge the decision? Probably wouldn't want to stay with them after the treatment anyway, but maybe get some sort of severance out of it.

    I get fired everyday. Because I work as a Human Cannonball.

    Congrats on scoring another daily grind. Jobsearching and being out of work sucks so it's always nice to get back into employment, even if it means - well - having to go to work.

    From the experience I've had with WalMart, such an idea would be laughed at.

    Hopefully, you can keep that under control this time around. Did you have other similar episodes before your termination?
