OT Husband is looking to change careers
My Husband (sometimes Dear...) is by trade this past 15 plus years, a mechanic. He has worked day in day out every week for the same small locally owned business.
They want to retire. They had been grooming this younger dude (Golden Boy) for YEARS to take over and buy the business.
They really want to retire this year. They were turned down by Golden Boy who got a better offer somewhere else. Hes not likely to change his mind. They shopped the business around and someone else is biting, this someone who owns a mercedes dealership. Who is considered by those in the know to be an A$$ in general and especially and A$$ to work for.
Husband is looking to ask to be laid off. And collect unemployment while he does odd sidejobs here and there. He insists that he will be able to meet all his financial obligations, but I am seriously not sure how. He might be in for a serious rude awakening.
I told him I trust him to do the right thing, but inside I dont know if I can trust him to really know what he is getting into. With his knowledge and experience, hes pretty much in demand and can find another job quickly. I do know a bit about his financials, but hes been a bit secretive lately.
We shall see. I know that Toxic Troll wont stop asking for that TT-support check every month. Just another off topic vent to release a bit of stress to start the morning...
