Just as I suspected, I was informed this afternoon by my boss that his efforts to keep me on past this tear down and inspection fell on deaf ears.
I wasn’t surprised in the least.
At least this time telling me I’m getting laid off didn’t come out of the blue.
I had three floating holidays still and my vision insurance was temporarily reactivated while I was there so I am taking Friday afternoon off, saying Soyanara and going to get my eyes checked. Then I am going to order some real glasses and say goodbye to the Dollar Store Specials I have been using for the last fifteen years.
I’m probably going to get two pairs, just because.
I don’t care if I have to pay for one out of my ass pocket or not.
Then I am going to pick up where I left off and see about getting that transmission swapped out in the Sprite.
Since there is an Unemployment extension just waiting I ain’t overly worried about finances just this minute but I’m going to start looking around next week and see what I can see.
Just a quick look after I got home shows me there are jobs out there.
Low pay, work requirements including those of a supervisor that they obviously don’t want to pay for, places I wouldn’t even consider and maybe a couple I would. A lot depends on just how much electrical and PLC experience they are wanting.
As we all know I’m Old School.
That was just a quick search on my phone.
I’ll jump into the search after I get some shit done.
I made some money while the getting was good, that’s what it’s all about and no bridges were burnt.
Almost every single job I’ve had over the last thirty five years has come by word of mouth so I’m going to start putting the word out.
In the mean time I still have a day and a half of ass busting in front of me.
