Default Just Got Fired Today

Just got fired from my sales job. Had been there for over 6 years, easiest job I ever had, but they shrunk my territory and have been fucking with me for over a year. I evidently pushed them far enough..
Not really sweating it, but am curious about cleaning off all the shit I have on my work computer, which I have to return, along with my phone?
I was thinking about just downloading pictures, etc. than dropping it in water? or some full clean re-boot?
What else should I be doing besides cracking a beer and firing up the grill?
any input appreciated-

Is your phone an iPhone? I think you can reset them to factory restore

Sorry to hear this. A Company Stupid enough to fire Baller is not worth working for. I must say though if your going to get fired I can't think of a better time. What else should you be doing you ask? Spend all day Monday & Tuesday studying the brackets & then on Wednesday hop on a plane for Vegas to enjoy & make some money on the Opening round of the NCAA Tournament!

leave your job with class, dignity, and no negativity no
matter what you feel towards your company or any
particular co-worker. in the future you might need a
recommendation or one your fellow employees might
find an opportunity that could help you. there is no
downside in suppressing any negative feelings or
comments that you have or would like to make.

I'll pay you 10 bucks an hour to write gambling articles at home in your underpants. when you get a new computer of course :-)

If it makes you feel better I have been sitting the dark and cold since Wednesday morning with no power or hardly any heat.

Thanks guys,
I really like the words of positive wisdom.
After I met with HR, I had the same feelings that niltes said.
I left with respect and professionalism, had time to inform two of my large clients, so that I wouldn't be leaving them in the lerch.

-absolutely looking forward to March Madness day games while kids are at school, and wife is at work.

-Buying new computer tomorrow to transfer all my photos/contacts, before I nuke my work computer and give it back..

-Saw an old buddy at my kid's little league game(kid played great), offered me a job selling medicinal marijuana, said he's killing it..

I quit smoking about 12 years ago, but told him I'd partake if it was required..

Sales only, edibles and vapors. No deliveries. Their bud delivery guy got heisted for 80-100 pounds in LA, obviously an inside job.

Followed up my phone interview with a face-to-face yesterday.
Start date is May 1st.
I have a $1500/month entertainment budget, along with $1000/month "samples budget", $500 in car.
My new manager told me that their lowest guy pulls in 150K/year. My territory is 30 miles north thru 30 miles south of my home.
He gave me some "samples" yesterday, I handed some out to my friends, ate a small candy last night, slept like a rock.

Oh yeah,,per boss' orders: my mandatory attendance is required at the Cannabis Convention in Vegas.

Great stuff those edibles. Good luck Baller. So you don't work out of a dispensary? I do know they deliver here but there are so many withing like 20 minutes here. If you have an area I guess they do it different where you are.
