Unemployment

So Ed’s mom told me that he told her he was collecting unemployment… which takes me into true/false mode because she doesn’t even know who he’s living with BUT the other big puzzle is who let him go and how is he collecting?  Almost all of Ed’s terminations have been attendance related.  He seems almost unable to grasp the idea that an employer expects you to come to work, like daily when you’re scheduled.  Any minor ailment is enough of a reason for Ed to call in.  My understanding was that to collect unemployment you had to be let go by your employer for reasons beyond your control… but then again, I’ve never been fired or tried to collect so how would I know?
