    As of thursday at 2:30 PM I am Unemployed!

    I gave it very much thought and came up with the decision to take a Buy-out that Ford offered me, 100K all my insurance for 6 months, and a chance to return to work with the company when / IF! things pick up.

    It is gonna feel strange looking for a job again!
    Maby my wife will see fit for me to upgrade my tank to the 145 Bow that I've had my eye on! But the purse strings have Without a doubt tightened ... So i still have the pics of All the new Big tanks here to look forward too!
    I want to do things in the computer field anyways, so heres my chance to Move on .

    Ya I kinda quite/got fired last tuesday.... I was working at a chevron doing graveyards while I finished EMT school.... long story short I wanted to call in sick (hot date that night) and no one would pick up my shift (10pm-6am). I was pissed, I got finished with my date, we went to some standup comedy at the bar behind my work. I had a couple drinks while we where watching the show. Let me rephrase myself when i say a couple...... I was slammed!!!! My leg is sleeved and I have lots of fishing tackle in my face (as yote would say). So ...... I went to work in shorts with all my piercings in and I sure as hell didnt stop drinking.....lol. I decided I would close down the store for an hour or so and have my date "hang out with me in the backroom (no cameras)..... ya buddy!" It was a cool way to quit/get fired.
    I wish you the best of luck Lion!

    Best wishes Lion.
    Using a little of the 100k for a bowfront doesn't sound like a bad idea.
