millenniumman is on a distinguished road
Unemployed & going broke

For the past 6 years I have worked for the same Automotive Parts Wholesaler. Helping to take them from 4 warehouses east of the mississippi to 20+. To thank me for these years of dedicated service, traveling every-other week and taking on additional duties with the promise of future compasation I was rewarded with an "Involentary Premature Unfunded Retirement" (Laid-Off). Sure glad I spent all those weeks away from my wife & home..!! They were nice enough to pay me to go away, which has allowed me to go sailing here on Tampa Bay 3-4 days a week. Now that the $'s running out I guess I better go find a job....How hard could that be...

You Lucky Schmuk! Do you know what it is like here in Minnesota in the winter? Too cold to even work on the boat, much less sail. And, being unemployed, I can't afford to go where it's warm. What a horrible time to get laid off! I hope I can get extensions to my unemployment benefits so I can stretch it thru the summer!
