Cool itís time to move on

Well after 5 years itís time to move on, this Thursday will be my last day working for my employer over the past few years management has dumped more and more shit in my lap. I finally woke up one day and said this is not how I want to live my life. It is time to fire my employer!!! It took some time but I just landed a great job about 4 miles further away from home. It was so gratifying handing that letter of resignation to him last Monday. I am taking a couple weeks to spend with my family, and going to start my new job with a new outlook on life.

Life is to short to get shit on every day, If you are not happy do something about it !!

getting laid off and moving back home from texas was one of the best things that has happened to my family.

I was in the process of making the change for myself, and just was "not ready". getting laid off was a blessing in disguise! who knows when I would have "been ready" and just taken there crap.

congrats, and good luck bud.

Congrats on making the move, change is hard even though it usually ends up working out. I am finishing up a degree and looking to make a move in a year. I am dreading the whole job seeking process.

Yes. But everything is cheap here, I pretty much get to do whatever the hell I want for work, and it's not the same boring mindless task every day. Working for your brother in law has its benefits.

Good luck and congrats! Doing the same thing currently myself, but the job is 300 miles south. Taking the big leap. Hope all goes well for you.

Sheffield. Hour from the northern border.

No wonder. You're out in BFE. Cedar Rapids is more expensive than MI, the only upside the insurance coverage is like 10% of what it would be in MI. Watch out for tornadoes.

This.
You forgot to mention Saginaw and Flint, plus surrounding areas.

Outdoors wise it kinda sucks though. At least Minnesota isn't far.
