Keeping my fingers crossed....AGAIN

DS has an interview on Tuesday. This is getting really old. It's been more than month jobless. He isn't just staying at home either, thank goodness. This is really bothering him, as it should. Sometimes I just want to wring his neck for quitting the other job. They wanted him back too. He called and told them that he screwed up and would like a second chance, never called him back, so, I guess he has his answer, big dummy!!

Hang in there mom. Look at it as a learning experience. I bet he will NEVER quit a job again without having another one lined up. And he'll find something eventually and all my best wishes and prayers that Tuesday's interview will lead to something. In the meantime he needs to continue to search and not give up hope.

I sure sympathize, TG. Both of my grown sons have done this before. I can't really say much to them because they live on their own and they have always had money saved up to live on for quite a while. But jeez, why not keep your job til you have another one and keep your savings intact? Makes me crazy. But it always seems to me that I'm more concerned about when they will get another job than they are!!!

Thanks everyone. I know it's gets tiring to see my threads, but, I really don't have anyone to talk to. I don't want my sisters knowing everything that goes on in my house and my parents are gone,so, your the lucky recipients of my troubles
