    ...including me. :cry 

    They said I was making too much money for my position, so I had to go along with everyone else earning too much. What a crock. 7 years there down the drain. Looks like it's time for that new career path I've been putting off for too long. Also time to put my college degree to good use. Here's to the future!

    Sorry about that. Chances are you will find something better and the 7 years of experience and stability will look good to you next employer.

    I never shop at CC. They are really shitty at displaying DVDs and such. You have to flip through the things to find what you are looking for. At Best buy you can skim the spines and find the DVD quicker.

    Best of luck man.
