lost my job, sorta
so i've been working at this yamaha and kawasaki dealership which also sold used cars and clubcar golf carts, well a few months ago the owner decided to sell the company, ok, might be good, he was a bit of a douch bag, they also decided to drop yamaha. a** holes, that sucks, owning 2 yamahas myself. well the company got sold, new guys took over as of monday, biger and beter company has alot of other dealerships, mainly cars. they kept telling us befor hand that they wanted to keep the motor sports and go full tilt with kawasaki, and everything would be buisness as usual, well monday rolls around and they sit me down to talk about my job. first thing out of their mouths is they're shutting down the motor sports after they sell what product they still have. do i want to move over to automotive or marine. and what start another aprenticeship i have no interest in, hell no. now i'd have no problem getting another job right away. but i had a buddy txt me a few days befor, who is living in another province, he says i should move out there there is lots of work good pay and cheap housing. they tell me this news on monday, well mind made up i tell them i'll be done at the end of the month and i'll be moving to a small town in northern BC. i've always lived around edmonton alberta, born and rasied, this will be the first time moving away. i'm leaving with just my tools for the job and a suit case, leaving the kid behind with grandma and grandpa for six months to finish the school year and so i can get set up out there. well here goes nothing hope i can make it.
thanks for reading my little rant.
