Do I deserve to be fired for this?

Home More advice Jobs & Money

My anger problems had completely ruined my entire life. I'd go through long phases where I explode over the smallest thing. It got me suspended during high school, restricted to online courses in college, lost me some friends, and recently got me fired. A coworker said on Jan 4th that she came to a cartful of apparels returns. She thought it was from me, and when I tried to explain it was from the overnight crew, she didn't believe me, so I yelled at her and got confrontatinal even though she said it's no bid deal. She went to mgmt about me "harrassing" her.

Four days later, I was still unable to get past it, so I punched the pole in the fitting room AND banged my head into it in front of customers, who reported me. Mgmt said it was workplace violence, accused me of endangering people, and fired me. They said ceiling tiles coulda fallen and hit someone and cause serious damage. However, they said I'm eligible for rehire and may apply after 90 days. Still, should they have canned me or given me a second chance? I get a lot of work done on the sales floor. Also, I didn't ask to have an anger problem. I was born that way."

Some people said I deserved it. I deserved it?! ! It was that coworker who triggered my outburst. She made me throw my fist and my head at that pole. Sure that's company property, but I'm worth less than the pole? It didn't even break! Anyway, was it the pole who worked its *** off for them in its dept when it wasn't people greeting? Everyone else in softlines also agreed my work performance was good. I also had perfect attendance. Now with only 2 people left in Ladies Wear, I'll just like to see how much they (don't) get done. mgmt firing people for meaningless issues must feel useful or something!
