    Thereís a lot of good out there. My wife found a journalist who was vetting and posting venmo accounts for people out of work and in need. Spent the night venmoing random strangers. Some people in some really tough situations.

    I quit my job after my first daughter was born. I was working 60-70 hour, 5 day weeks on salary. My manager was going to transfer me to an offshift because my ďschedule has become erraticĒ when I was taking sick time to go to specialist appointments because we had some pretty scary pregnancy scares that *thankfully* turned out to be nothing. And I got set up to take a fall to cover his *** for a number of things he had been ****ing up. A pretty classic case of he said/he said where I was the accused without any documentation to protect me because I never saw that **** coming in a million years. So, Iíve been working at a grocery store to help make ends meet for a month (emergency savings dwindled faster after the wife also got furloughed) which has been fun to be honest, but $10/hour for 32 hours doesnít pay our bills.

    Well, today I got a job offer at a $15k increase from my old job with a better time off package and better bonus structure. At worst, Iím getting a nice salary bump. At best, this is leverage for another job that Iím in the final 2 for that would pay another $15k on top of this job and is the responsibility step-up that Iím ready (and want) to tackle in my career.

    Needless to say, getting an offer has relieved some serious anxiety on my end as my job search has stretched for almost 3 months.

    Good for you man. You're on your way up.

    This is the American story. Struggles and frustration, feelings of why not me. You fought through it and it appears you came out on top.

    90% of us have gone through what you did. However, if you have fortitude and perseverance, the chances are it will pay off.

    Good luck in the future and use this as an opportunity to not be so angry and use it as an opportunity to encourage others. I honestly hope you have a life filled with rewards and happiness.

    With that, I'm out. You my friend have the honor of receiving my final post in this forum.

    I really thought a silver lining would come out of this ****ed situation, and you just posted it. Unfortunately, the majority in this forum see things as politics as usual.

    God bless debo and don't stop climbing that latter. And coming from a man that has anger issues himself, kudos. Peace out.
    GJO- You will never be forgotten. "MORE THAN MINFINITY"!
