:: Time to Move on ::
I just got fired from my job today. It was for something stupid that I'm not going to get into and I probably could have prevented it if I paid a little more attention to my stuff. To be honest, I was getting frustrated with that job anyway, and when the owner broke the news, I didn't really fight it. In the back of my mind, I think I knew it was going to happen.

Still, when it actually happens, no matter how much I might have hated my job I left feeling a little numb. I've quit jobs, I've been laid off, but I've never been fired, and this is a new experience for me. Even if I wasn't satisfied, I still showed up - admittedly late every now and then - and I worked hard while I was there and to have it removed still sucks.

So now what? This moves up my time table to go out find my "real" job a little bit. Till then, I find something to hold me over. Wish me luck.

EDIT: I found out from a co-worker that I got ratted out by a trainee who called this morning to tell the owners that he couldn't work here because he thought all the waiters were corrupt thieves, or something to that effect. The odd thing is, my name somehow came up, when literally the only words I said to him all night was, "hi, I"m Dan-E." I'm not the only one who did what I did, but for that (ridiculous) reason, they decided to use me as an example.

So they'd rather value the word of some piece of shit who didn't even have the balls to voice his complaint in person over an employee who's been there over two years. I think I'm better off away from there.
