My work history is terrible
I'm seventy years old and I consider it a miracle that I lived to be this old. I have chronic asthma from birth, spinal scoliosis and a personality disorder which kept me from learning normally. I have trouble sleeping and I've had a serious nervous breakdown. Obviously at times life has sucked.
I have been laid off four times and fired six time. The times I was laid off were not my fault but I was fired five times for not being worth a damn on the job and once for cussing and using obscene language on the job.
I was fired from ITE Imperial Corp, The Red Cross, ETS pay phones, Vulcan materials, Home Depot and Reliance bank. Each time was for poor performance or like I said cussing or dirty language.
I ended up working for peanuts for the state and after three and a half years I was caught up in a downsizing and at age 63.5 I was out fo work again.
I collected unemployment benefits for eleven months and after that I lived on saved up money and then social security. I also inherited over $400,000 from my parents and by a miracle my 94 year old mother is still alive.
Had it not been for my family I would have ended up homeless.
I firmly believe that had I been born without the problems in this post I would have done much much better. I have no wife and no children. No brothers or sisters.
I really don't know why I posted this but perhaps its to show that even though you may be feeling low you could have the problems that I do.
Does it make you feel better? I hope so.
