Got out of the Marines in October and moved back to Michigan. Living in mom and dad's basement. Joy./forums/images/icons/tongue.gif That was like 3-4 weeks after Sept 11 and the economy here in South West Michigan took a big hit. Took me a month to find a job, and it wasn't much of one. Kept looking, finally found one about a month ago. Started it 3 weeks ago. Turns out to be not at all what the guy sold it as. Unsafe equipment, boss doesn't care as long as he makes as much money as he can, it sucked. So when I raised questions about it all, he fired me./forums/images/icons/mad.gif 5 days on the job and I'm unemployed./forums/images/icons/frown.gif That was two weeks ago Monday. I've got over 10 job applications in, and still looking. Don't really want to go back to my last job, it didn't pay much and was quite a drive, so by the time I got paid, paid for gas and paid my bills, I was broke again! Yeah!/forums/images/icons/crazy.gif Looking like I just might have to go back or start doing some crap job until I can find something else./forums/images/icons/frown.gif/forums/images/icons/tongue.gif This sucks.
