    Sorry to hear that. Keep your head up. Sometimes shit happens and for some lead them to even better opportunities. I will be in San Francisco tomorrow actually. If I weren't going to be with my family I would have grabbed you lunch and a beer at some outdoor seating restaurant

    Sucks to hear that my ninja but from personal experience, everythings golden. It can be stressful, lack of security, etc.

    This gentleman knows.

    Miss SF and Chinatown, was planning on staying for a few days for the Chinese New Year parade but it was just as Covid was kicking off and probably not a great idea. People on another site were calling me silly at the time, changed their mind a couple of weeks later.

    Unemployment pays pretty good, and you can't beat the schedule or the commute

    So you're 60ish years old? Might make it tougher. Guess you're not in a position to retire? When you say kids, you mean younger kids, or you want to be close to them?

    Damn I kinda feel like a dick now. Got 3 farms that keep calling me to work but I don't wanna leave my own land just yet. Got few bills. Grow and forage. All I really need to buy is meat and weed.

    Heh....ya, if it were just me in a single apartment but I got 3 kids man. Unemployment isn't covering anything for me, well rent, but that's it. My new FULL TIME job is finding a job. Gotta treat it like a 10 hour a day (or more as needed) job not a time to watch Netflix and chill. A wake up call I guess.

    In these days of crazy emergency, it should be legal to exchange sexual favors for daily necessities... or bank the sex acts in the form of credits for use later.

    I don't know how it's relevant whether it's a hoax or not. If my other half got laid off as a result of it then how is watching TV going to have an effect or not? Fucking idiots on an otherwise reasonable site lately.

    Things work out the best for the people who make the best of how things work out.

    Don’t let it phase you, no time, adapt.

    I know it’s easy to say, good luck sherbro.

    I am so sorry to hear this. I've been in this position before where I lost a job with a young family. I made it through and found another job. I will say a prayer for you and your family. My wife and I have talked about this, my current job is great, but if something happens we are prepared to move anywhere. A house in your area is $1M. A nice house in many nice parts of the country is $350k. Might be working looking in other states if you can't find something local.
