Got a call yesterday from a fellow that is competing for business with my former employer ... I start Monday . Had to take a bit of a cut in pay (well , I didn't exactly ask him to match ...) but it shouldn't hurt the take home , since I won't be payin' out over $175/week for insurance and IRA right now . I don't wish my former employer any bad luck , but if his general manager (backstabbin' SOB) chokes on a chicken bone it wouldn't hurt my feelings . I wasn't really looking forward to runnin' my own business , but if that's what it took ... I do plan on still doing some steel fab work on the side , gotta build the madmoney account back up .
