I worked for a bank for some 15 years and it was a major disappointment when they eventually let me go.
I was close to being able to retire, however then these people brutally cut me off.
I don’t even guess why they let me go, something about having to cut back on staff. It wasn’t fair. I mean, they at least gave me a severance package and I have my 401k at least, however it still was uncalled for. I should have been able to work until I was able to respectfully retire. I ended up using some of the money in my severance package to go back to school. This time around, I had an method of what I wanted to do. One thing that I always complained about while toiling at the bank was the miserable temperature control settings and exhausting air quality. I suppose I got on management’s nerves to be honest, and perhaps that has something to do with me being released from the bank. So I thought it would be cool to work in the Heating and Air Conditioning industry fixing heating and cooling systems. I would prefer to talk to people about investing in energy efficient systems that allow you to get incentives from the government on your taxes. So I went to school and earned my Heating and Air Conditioning certification, before I knew it, I was out there toiling on all kinds of unusual heating and cooling systems. It wasn’t exactly easy learning how to do this work, but I did well in school and l earned a lot from my training. Now I’m making way more money than I was making before, and I suppose I can build a nice retirement toiling in this industry for a decade or so.
