I just got fired

First time ever for me.

I worked at Blockbuster and I gave a friend of mine a discount last week. Turns out that's a form of "theft". **** that stupid company.

Now I am unemployed and have to pay my bills!

pretty much standard at any company, that is definitely theft. at cineplex we have to sign fraud and theft forms.

unless you were trying to make a career out of blockbuster, i wouldn't be worried about it... got fired from a fast food company and it didn't affect me, i actually got asked if i wanted to work in another location... since jobs were at a limit for me, i took it and told the other boss he was a ****ing moron

I worked for Blockbuster about 100 years ago. They've been ripping off people for years, stick it to them anyway you can

Who cares. You can make the same crappy wage anywhere else, so don't worry about it. With crappy jobs like that you don't even need to put it on your resume. Find something else a little more fun and learn from your mistake.

Blockbuster is a joke anyway. At least you got fired before they go out of business and lay you off anyway.
