Huh. No kidding. I get why you kept that on the low. As someone who has been fired over a dozen times it always sucks at first. There's firings where I fucked up, but most of my firings are the result of exposing my bosses incompetence in the course of doing my job. I suspect.. Hell, I'm positive he was the latter case.
When you get fired from a job like that, your next job will likely be making 4x the pay for a 1/4 the work.
Cool story bro.
