The best of both worlds! Now, you can collect unemployment -- you can't get that if you quit voluntarily. Also, if you have that bogus "not reliable enough" reason on paper, you have basis for a wrongful termination lawsuit. You get to stop working at a shithole and have two chances to score some free cash from them. Congrats!

Unenployment shouldn't be a problem, sincerely doubt op will see any severence pay, and as far as future resumes go, quitting without notice and being fired both look pretty bad.

31 - My dad's been fired plenty of times through complete fault of his own (smoking inside the building, cursing at the boss, generally sucking at his job, etc) and he's always collected unemployment. I'm not saying agree with it, but that's how it's worked for him so far.

31, It's not as simple as that. When you apply for unemployment you have to give the reason you were fired on the application. Then you and the person/ company that fired you is notified of a review date on which you can present your case as to why you deserve unemployment and your former employer can refute your case. Usually the former employer doesn't show up, so OP could argue, "They fired me because they said I was 'unreliable' but it's not true and really didn't deserve to get fired at all," in which case OP would probably be approved to receive unemployment.

35 - Where do you live? Cause here in Canada they don't give out 'free' money cuz you suck at your job or simply don't wanna be there, if that were the case no one would work atall

Actually, the Canadian government is fairly lenient in regards to who qualifies for employment insurance. The catch is that they only give you enough money to barely get by, and only for a limited period of time. That's why people have the incentive to work instead of collect employment insurance.

I don't know what you think about the united states but with un-employment + welfare+ food stamps is still well below the poverty line.

#8, most people who get fired are eligible for unemployment. You have to be caught stealing a lot from the company (more than a few pens) or walking around with your dick hanging out to get fired and not be able to get that benefit.

So the lesson here is... If I am going to steal a lot of stuff and get fired, I might as well do so with my dick out. Yet another way that FML is preparing me for the world outside.

#22, you learn fast. Not only do you get a free computer, but maybe one of your former co-workers liked what they saw in your final parade. . . rawr!

Win-win! You're no longer there, you've got the possibility of some kind of severance pay, AND you can tell your next employers that it takes serious illness to keep you from working.

#49, sounds pretty good, but my fantasy has been to stand up naked on my desk and belt out "Take This Job and Shove It!" it's not a sexual fantasy because I wouldn't have a boner -- my flaccid dick would be yet another indication of my disdain for the company!
