    DO NOT SIGN IT. Signing it will be signing away your Unemployment. When they tell you to sign it, tell them you know what that does and tell them to also FUCK OFF for it :)

    Don't sign anything at all, just take your paycheck and run. They might still try and fight it. Did you steal or what?

    and unpaid at the time of discharge are due and payable immediately.  
    An employer who lays off a group of employees by reason of the  
    termination of seasonal employment in the curing, canning, or drying  
    of any variety of perishable fruit, fish or vegetables, shall be  
    deemed to have made immediate payment when the wages of said  
    employees are paid within a reasonable time as necessary for  
    computation and payment thereof; provided, however, that the

    lol, may as well have done both. really though, i enjoyed the people i work with, the challange of fixing computers but frys on the whole sucks balls. the level of multi tasking required at service is pretty crazy. not to mention people always balk when you need supplies. swear to god this should have happened sooner but they aren't exactly handing out jobbs.
    oh well i'll survive.

    has anyone else been ownd by the SM,ASM and your Dept MGR all at once? i think of that eagles song "kick em while there down"

    Take it as a stepping stone. There ARE other jobs out there, even in this economy. And if you are half way decent at repairing computers, you can do it on the side and set your own pace. There are PLENTY of people searching someone to repair their PC and not rape them for doing it, like some of the big chains. A few flyers on some school and apartment building bullitin boards, and yer in business.
