Life is forgiving

I just I just turned 57 and decided to walk out of my job. The place I worked treated people like crap they didn't pay unless you were family and anyone started got the worst jobs in pretty much were made to stay there making nothing or quit I've never left a job in my life I finally couldn't take it anymore. the deer walked out I thought was the best day of my life well it's been 4 months I'm looking, being depressed, I'm trying to survive I finally turned the corner this week head for good interviews two offers and this received a third that is going to pretty much put me better than I've ever been in my life all I want to say is never quit just keep looking to stay happy and rely on your friends. Keep your spirits up, keep looking, and call me I'm in charge of hiring for new company and give me a month to get settled you give me a call I'll talk to you have a wonderful day move on.

I did the same thing, walked out on a job I had 15 years and I don’t regret it at all. Giving increases to employees who are their friends while others work their tails off. The micromanaging was ridiculous!

Congratulations Bruce! I did the same 2 months ago. I finally realized that money doesn't buy health or happiness. First job I have ever quit. Feels great and excited for future opportunities.

I'm a positive person and I'm going through a job change to. It's hard because I love 5he business I work for and 5he customers. I'm a hard worker and give 110% , I'm reliable and always on time. But I have worked there 4 yrs and never have had a raise. I finally got tired of it and asked for one. Their still thinking about it, It's time for a change, and a company that appreciates my work .ethic
