I got fired from the Guitar Center in Boston. You wouldn't think it was a good thing, but, realistically, I'm much better off for it. I got all the good friends out of working there that I could, I'm making about as much per week at my current job (that's 15 minutes away from where I live, as opposed to the 2 hours it took to get to GC) as I did in two weeks at GC, and I'm happier, not so much in my job, but in my life than I was then. Also, I've gotten somewhat back into playing music (which I really hated when I worked there... Something about the customers and atmosphere that made me hate it....).
The best part is, within a month after firing me they went from having a positive shrink (the store actually had more money/merchandise than they should have) to having thousands of negative shrink! Proving that I was the most important member of the team!
So I raise a bottle and drink in the name of leaving GC Boston!
