    My husband found a temp job he really liked.
    It was for the holidays (8 weeks) however they lead him to believe
    he would be kept after the holidays.
    He and 3 others were let go the Saturday before Christmas.
    (He had been told they would work as temps at least till mid Jan.)
    He has been such a bear and stubbooooooooorn :flame:
    Would not go apply with his old company who wanted him back.
    He wouldn't look for work.
    Just stayed home playing video games and drinking coffee and home
    24/7 driving me totally nuts :rolleyes:

    Yesterday he got a call from the company he was a temp for
    but a different contractor and asked him if he would like a full time permanet job starting next Wednesday :dance:

    This is such a blessing as he really liked that job and was such a misrable wretch these last 3 plus weeks. I know men worry about it when they don't have a job but but but :rolleyes: :)
    He likes it and it pays well and it keeps him out of my hair :bouncy:
    I know even the dogs and cats will be happy. :gromit: :benice:
    This is truly a blessing :happy:

    I am so glad his luck changed. You know deep down he must have felt depressed. Now, he will enjoy going back to the grind. Glad they know a hard working man when they see one.
