We just began the summertime season yesterday and the beaches are slammed with kids as school got out yesterday for the summer months. I just got out of work, so to speak, for the whole month of July after hearing about layoffs in the company. I guess this can be a good thing because now I will have a whole month off to do as I please. I will spend most of the days looking for another job online, and hopefully before the month of July is done I can have another income stream to replace the HVAC tech job that I am losing. If I can find something making me about $500 a month I will be fine for a while, worst case would be tapping into my savings for a few months if no HVAC businesses are hiring online. Jobs come and go as I have found out over the past 40 years of my life in the working world. My cooling tech job that I thought would last forever quickly ended when the heating supplier got divorced. They spent a lot of money getting that company off the ground too, but within about eight or so months the whole thing went under because of this divorce. That poor HVAC supplier lost his job, wife, and kids in a matter of a few months. He found out his wife met someone else and now he has to move on by himself, which I know is not a fun thing to go through. His cooling and heating corp was his life, not to mention his family, which is now gone.
