Don't let the bad shit happening with your ex influence bad decision-making in other areas of your life. This is a family-owned business, yes? Not really. My dad owns it, and I'm an employee. There is nothing saying that I will inherit the business when he retires. In fact, he has implied the opposite. He might need to sell the business to fund his retirement. You have a direct line to taking over when dad retires? Then don't blow an awesome situation.

Lawyer up for the divorce and fight for custody, especially if your wife has been cheating. Between that, and the pre-nup, I would hope a good lawyer will come through for you. I'm fully lawyered up.

And for fucks sake, don't join the Army for three hots and a cot. That would be one of the dumber reasons for joining, right after "spreading democracy and the American way." Like I said, that wasn't the only reason, and it's a LAST resort. I highly doubt I'll be joining the military, I just threw it out there as a possible option and now everyone is jumping on me about it lol. Rolleyes

Nobody is jumping on your for joining the military Bacon. It's been good to a lot of people, including yours truly....but you have to weigh it all in together and realize it will take 4-5 years before its better than being a shit job--unless you go in as an officer In which case it's 2-3 years being a shit job, but at least you make a lot more doing it Smile.

I agree, but don't forget about my posts when I said there were other job opportunities I have lined up before that, and military is only a LAST resort, and there have always been a lot of reasons why I've wanted to join the military anyway, unrelated to the benefits. Things like the overall life experience, the training, serving my country, etc.

Anyway, I don't think I'm gonna lose my job. Three days has passed, I got a deep concealment holster, and I'm carrying again. I will continue to do so until further notice from my employer. Knowing my dad, and knowing that HE KNOWS how stubborn I am, he will simply never bring the issue up again unless another "incident" happens. Let's hope.

By the way a way THANK YOU to Sean Reed (member here CDI) for providing me with a deep concealment holster for my Glock 19 until I get the funds together to buy my own. Not only did he hook me up with a holster, but its a damn good one too.


I didn't forget, considering it is a last resort kind of thing it is extreme and a major commitment that you can't just change your mind a month or two if it's not what you expected like you could with another job in the real world.

I get that, and it's good advice that I will keep in mind before I make any decisions.

You could always join the guard, too. It does make it harder to go active duty if you REALLY like it, but there are full-time federal jobs for people who are in the national guard, and there are active duty jobs at each guard station to keep the place running in between drills. Plus there are ALWAYS tours you could go on.

Might be a very good compromise for you if you want to serve your country, but still live a 'normal' life.

Your age will dictate a lot of this though, they won't take you in the military at all after you're past a certain age.

Thanks, I've already considered that and even went to a National Guard recruiting center a few years ago. I decided against it at the time because the pay was incredibly low (unless deployed) and I had a wife and kid.

But now, it might be more of an option because of my current situation. I'll look into it if this job thing works out.

But like I said, I don't think I'm losing my job. My dad hasn't said a word after the three 3 period and I've been carrying again. I think he's gonna keep his mouth shut about the whole thing and basically make it a "don't ask, don't tell" kind of policy. I already told him straight up that I was going to carry again after the three days, and he knows this, but still hasn't brought it up.

The pay per month is based on a single drill weekend, and a drill weekend constitutes 4 periods and each period is one single day of active duty for pay.

So if you see something showing (for example) $200 for a drill weekend for an E1, that is *almost* one weeks worth of base pay for an active duty military member of the same rank.
