If you have seen my previous postings in a couple of threads you know i have quit my job as of last friday.I have decided i will no longer work a 40 hour week.I am by no means a slacker but i just got sick of the whole 40 to 60 hour week.I had not had a raise in 4 years and i decided 2 months ago enough is enough.
I will be getting a parttime job pretty soon i think and i have some other prospects for working that do not involve working everyday nor do they involve having a "boss".
Anyway my wife makes a ton more than i do and i want to spend more time with my daughter and do some other things so as of today i no longer work 40 hours a week or more.
Last friday i clocked out and told my boss he needs to rehire someone for the position i wont be back on monday.Just to be sure i "burned that bridge" i called him pathetic.
Guess who called me this morning?LOL!!
So in order to accomplish this ive positioned myself in such a way financially that i can do this.Here is a list of basic things ive done.
1.I own my car (95 jeep cherokee).It has 97k miles on it and is in good working order.I take care of this auto and have gotten several things replaced on it as well.
2.Avoid starbucks.If i get coffee while im out its in a travel mug at the local QT for 63 cents.That being said i and my family do NOT eat out anymore.It will be a rare treat and therefore enjoyed that much more.
3.Car insurance.I dropped my collision and now pay 45 bucks a month.Its right around 500 bucks a year i think.
4.No credit card.Ive paid it off and is used ONLY for emergencies.
5.If you cant pay cash dont buy it.
So that being said here is my 1st day:
I wake up and roll over.My 3 year old is staring me in the eye.She is ready to go to school.
We get to school and its time for breakfast.Bacon,eggs applesauce and juice.I sit down with ALL the kids and eat some as well.(if you knew how much it cost you would too).So im just hangin with the kids for 15 minutes or so.
Heading for the local park grab a cheap cup of coffee on the way and im on the 1st tee by 9:15.I used to be loading a delivery truck by this time
.My cell rings.( i dont pay for service its part of the wifes deal at work).Its my exboss.
Exboss:Where are you?
Me:Noogies to the motherfuckin dude!!(i hang up)
Phone rings again.
EB:Where are you man?
Me:I told you friday i quit do you need a memo?Im playing golf dont call me anymore.
EB:Cmon man i need you to make deliveries we got a lot today.
Me:Well i cant anymore so hire someone else BaBYE!!!
So i finish up around 12:30 or so met some new people and had a great 1st half of my day.After this i went home had some lunch with the wife(she works from home) did some things around the house that i now have time to catch up on.
Cash spent for the day?63 cents.
Took some swordfish steaks out of the freezer for dinner and prepared some Asparagus.Went to get the kid out of school.I knew this was the right thing when my daughter comes running at me arms wide yelling "POPI!!"with the biggest smile ive ever seen
So there ya go folks my 1st day of taking back my life from people who could care less about me and my family.
