    So I’m a 42yo Xennial ..( final 12 months of gen X however nonetheless too outdated for pokemon.)

    I do a commerce… Collision restore..

    I’m a physique / body tech, however I really need to paint, and fill in when the painter is on trip.

    There’s about 4 to 5 bodymen for each painter in a physique store..

    I’m fortunate sufficient to be in a union store, and it’s been fairly good for me and my household.. at the same time as dysfunctional as I is I can nonetheless pull down some actual cash with my expertise and 20 grand of instruments I’ve purchased over time.

    I’ve been ready for my boomer painter to retire for six years, so I can take his place within the paint dept, and get that good cash. Its onerous work, however it’s what I’ve needed to do for 15 years.

    So the final 3 managers have advised me I’m in..

    I particularly advised my supervisor of this when he got here in 2 years in the past. He mentioned okay.

    Our new supervisor employed a second shift evening painter (his buddy).

    Turns out our painter is retiring early, subsequent month…

    Boss says he already promised the evening man the job!


    I went THAT DAY to one other store and they employed me ON THE SPOT for $6 extra an hour, to paint vehicles… what I’ve been ready for. And they’re in the identical union!

    So I went from $22hr to $28hr in a single day

    Don’t inform me I’m fucking bourgeois… I’ve obtained 2 children, mortgage, and payments… barely treading water…. I have not had a trip in 2 years and I’m about to flush my trip time to change careers.

    I’m telling my boss and placing in my 2 weeks pn Monday. Good luck discovering a new physique tech, mf





    Heck, in the event you outdated firm has trip time, give your resignation, and go on trip.



    That is how an actual man handles his shit. Good on you.



    Good for you! Wish you nothing however success.



    If “burn” your trip days means you’ll lose them as unpaid, maybe you possibly can milk it.

    Tell him you wish to instantly use your paid trip days to consider your future there. Then, whereas being paid for “vacation”, you possibly can already be working on the different gig … so double pay.



    Go from 22 to twenty-eight however don’t let that be the final time you job hop. Wait a yr then look to do one other job. It’s the one option to make it to 45+



    You misplaced me at “*too old for Pokémon*” you might be by no means too outdated to change into a Pokémon Master.



    Sir, if I might afford a paint job proper now, I’d drive my automobile to you and be your first buyer. Congratulations in your promotion.



    Hope your boss’ buddy goes to definitely worth the ache he will be feeling if you resign!

    If he screwed you that tough why do you’re feeling you owe him two weeks? I imply what’s going to change? Take the 2 weeks and luxuriate in it with your loved ones. Odds are you’re by no means going to have that a lot break day once more till you retire or die
