"It's not like I have a fighter jet in my backyard to drop a bomb with. Then they escorted me out to the parking lot."Noordewier said store officials had him sign an acknowledgment that he was fired for "gross misconduct — integrity issue."Wal-Mart spokeswoman Kory Lundberg confirmed that Noordewier no longer worked for the company but would not discuss why.Unemployment officials said Noordewier did not qualify for benefits because he had made a threat.Noordewier had a near-perfect work attendance record and once received a personal thank-you letter from the company president over compliments from a customer he once helped.He said he thinks a co-worker disliked him and pointed the MySpace page out to his boss."If you have a MySpace site, you better act like you're a politician," he said. "Be politically correct and don't try to be funny."MySpace is owned by News Corp., the parent company of FOXNews.com.
