Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So like the title says I just got fired. The simple version is I'm an idiot and it was all my fault so let's keep the flames a little low eh? Ok so here's what happened, over the last year me and my co-workers have been downloading TV shows and audio books to keep us entertained while we do our mind numbing job. No one complained that we where watching them in little windows or had headphones on. But apparently the company just took notice of this downloading and decided that everyone they could find doing this was out the door. Fine, whatever it's my fault I’ll take it like a man.
Anyway, what do I do now? Can I apply for un-employment (I'm in New Jersey if that matters.) even though I got fired because I'm a jackass? What do I put for reason for leaving? I was thinking of just putting that my temp. Position just ended. How hard will it be to find another job with this little blemish? I can’t imagine everyone that ever got fired never found another job after that .Any and all advice is well appreciated.
