It'll have to work for now until I am self-employed and can make enough money to tell them "color me gone". [}:)]

Hi Paul, I just read this and your e-mail, I'm very happy for you. Better live like you're going to lose the job again, just in case. (wish I could follow my own advise) when I first read you got the job, I thought -new fly-[:)]

Thanks. Oh yeah, trust me, insofar as I can make it possible, I will never be in the position I was in when I lost my job in March 2009. It will always be in the back of my mind that my job could be here one day and gone the next. I have never been unemployed in my whole life, I have literally never been out of work for even a day since 1988.

I'll just be glad when this economic depression here goes away. Nevada has the highest unemployment rate in nation, 14.3%, and I believe it's actually much higher than that because there are a lot of people not even on the radar anymore, people whose unemployment benefits ran out a long time ago. I believe that the true unemployment rate here is more like 20% or more.

Yeah, it's work. Not what I live for, but it pays the bills.

I need to do something about retirement. I literally have zero for retirement at the moment.

Unfortunately, there are many Gen-Xer's who are in the same boat.  I've got a 403b (that's the 401k for non-profit employees), but it's kinda pathetic.  I hear ya though... I'm in my mid-30's now and it's really time to start plugging away on it.

I'm 43. You have a little more time to save than I do. [B)]

A gun, a bullet and a mouthful of water - probably the most efficient retirement arrangements nowadays. At least if you don't want to become a burden for your family or you don't want to end rotting on the streets, old, alone and broke.

That's a cowardly way to deal with things...

Wow, Nef, that's bleak.  I think if things ever got that bad, I'd just go be a missionary to a tribe of head-hunters or something.  Who knows?  It could work.

Yeah, let's just hope that the economy doesn't take a dump again. I might be out a job again.
