Actually probably the best time of year for me to have been fired. Even if i pick up a new job super-quickly, it won't be in before E3 at this point.
I hope it wasn't over something too serious.
Just tell the truth, badgenome. You got in trouble with the law and will be going away for a few weeks.
They make it sound serious, or try to. "Fighting" and "theft" were the terms they used. The truth is that i stepped on the toes of a mean, well-entrenched employee (not management, but a valuable rank-and-file employee) who then antagonized me and spread rumors about me, and when i pushed to have something done about her, they decided to fire me instead.
