Well talk about a Crappy start to the year.

Post by Damin69 » Wed Feb 11, 2015 3:20 am

So January 1st my dad dies. Now today I got laid off of my job of 10 years. Kind of fitting to end this way I guess. When I started this job 10 years ago my mom Passed away the week after I started. So Guess this was a sign to start a new better beginning.

Hope things turn around quickly. What business are you in and how are the job prospects up there?

Hang in there dude...years ago I was laid off twice within a two year span. It does get better
No longer have a Shapeoko, but use a machine of my own design...
