Getting fired from your job is horrible but this guy made his day so much worse by his reaction to the situation.

Getting Fired Is Not A Good Experience

I honestly don't wish that fate on anyone. Getting fired is a horrible experience. Especially, if you've put in a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and time into that job. Some people in Illinois can handle it well. They just move on to the next thing. Others lose their mind and don't handle it well at all. This is the perfect example of a bad reaction.
