So much for that new job!


Got the boot on Tuesday. I was suppose to get extensive training in my first 90 day's but the owner did not have the patience or time to train me.

Small shop there is only 2 people in the shop and lots of work so rather than training me it was easier to terminate me.

Back on the UnEmployment Line. Sucks, but i will survive, as STYX say's it, i am a  blue collar man!!


Entry #164

Sorry to hear that Bob. When one door closes, another opens...
Keep your eyes open for that new door.

Merry Christmas

Thx truecritic. Was out today putting in applications and dropping my resume, letter of recommendations and cover letters at two local businesses looking for someone with my expertise. I worked in the Metro Detroit Fastener business for 25 years. Company's are starting to hire again.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Keep your head up like you've been doing. Life has a strange way of surprising you when you need a boost. Just when you think it's futile, and all hope is lost, "Strange majic" happens. Like the old Rolling Stones song says....".You can't always get what you want, but when you try sometimes, you get what you need".

Good luck, Bob. You may have to think outside of the box. Inventory your skills and don't be afraid to try something different. For example, if you're handy around the house you can make money doing home repairs.

Very BIG thanks LP Friends. I do have alot of Industrial Maintenance/Machine Maintenance and computer skills. I'm going to make up some flyers and distribute them at some local company's trying to sell them a preventative maintenance plan for their business. I will show them some cost savings by preforming PM's thus reducing costly break downs and lost production which inturn would boost their bottom line. Computer Maintenance is very important also......If you have not looked inside your computer case lately you would be suprised how dirty they get. A dirty computer causes heat to accumulate and can damage your motherboard processor, and video card first. If your computer is making noise, (normally fan noise) louder than normal check it out before damage is done.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a prosperous Lottery Season. :)

Excellent Bob! You're on the right path. Much success to you. I've been a self-employed maintenance man (home/property) for twenty years. I got my start with flyers. Word of mouth took over and within three months I was turning down work because I was too busy.
