I would suggest that you keep your job, but maybe start looking for somewhere else at the same time? When you find somewhere else, walk away from this job.

Agreed.
Update your resume & start passing it out, just try not to be negative when describing your situation to perspective employers.

So sorry! I really wish you the best.  Working in HR, I see this happen from time to time and I've seen it blow up in people's faces.

I am ready when you all are to start our own business!

With the laws as they are now, there is no chance for me to get another job locally.

Thanks for that.  Smile Smile

I was supposed to go back to work yesterday - that was the rumor anyway - but we've been told to hang on a bit.

Things are going to be awkward to say the least when I return so the longer I can stay away the better: maybe the hurt will have subsided a bit by the time I do return.

I can retire at 55 (three years from now) but I don't know if I should.

I would suggest just do the job you enjoy- and continue. It's not the end of the world.

For some reason, I thought you were older than that.

Maybe I have some work to do to re-qualify as a regular, but I am older.  🙂

Is there a way you could do what you do as a side bar, y'know, contract out for a few extra bucks?

I accumulated a few microphones & a couple recorders during my film & radio days after a few incidents....

Along the way, somebody told me about kitsplit
My accounts been up a few years, but I finally had a couple rentals this year.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
