Long story short...When you work for a less than mentally stable knife and gun manufacturer, you need to be on your toes. So glad I'm working elsewhere now.

Reviewing this 'ol thread...why??? Because, as much as I have loved working at Normac, for the last three or four years the ship has been slowly taking on water. I finally got to the point where I was going to update my resume, get it out there, and start looking around again. Although I've been keeping my eyes open for quite some time, even had an interview or two, nothing has really come up. I was NOT looking forward to being seriously on the job market again. Then, lo and behold, a friends facebook post pops up in my newsfeed, they need a Machine Operator, timing could not have been better. Within three days, two of those being the weekend, I had applied and accepted this new job for a stable, almost fifty year old, established company. New territory for me, as I will be running CNC machines as opposed to manual machines as I have been doing for the last fourteen years. Room to learn and grow, which also means room to earn $$$ as well.

Cool thing about this place, and me being a bike dork, our biggest customer is right next door.

Wow, that is great news Carl.
We recently sold the most of the rental properties and are now semi-retired.

Thanks Guys!!!

Hoping that I can retire from this one. Think I've found in my earlier searches, once you get close to/hit 50, people do not want to hire you. Thankfully I have a friend that works at this new place, and their attempts to hire younger folks, ended up with unreliable kids who didn't really want to work. I haven't really worked a 40 hour week in years now, I'm ready to go!!!

Congrats on the semi-retirement Richard!!! Please say Hi to Judy from us. If your ever up in the area let us know, would be nice to see you again. I haven't been down Atlanta way in years now, I need to get down there at some point in time.

Congrats, Carl. Many of us are only too well aware of the horrors and stupidity of ageism.

Thanks RB!!! Yup, had two great interviews where I was definitely qualified, and able to do the jobs. You never know for sure, but most likely I was passed over for my age.
