Oh boy. This ones a doozy.
Rob quit his job.
He has been working at Loewen Auto for about a year. His boss is not great. He knew that at the end of this month he'd be out of a job, because Loewen Auto is sold.
He was offered a job at Janzens Pontiac, but turned it down. (more on that later)
Well, last Monday morning, his boss tells him that Friday is now the last day. (4 days later) He had upped the sale date.
Throughout the last few months, Abe has been very dishonest about alot of things. He tells one employee one thing, and others different things. Then if they confront him he denies one or the other. Rob was promised a raise 2 months ago. He never got it.
Rob was worried that Abe would end up selling his tools with the business, or saying that some were his. Thats just the kind of guy he has turned out to be. So Monday night, Rob got a bunch of buddies together, and they removed absolutely everything of Robs from the shop from his tool box, to tires, to a filing cabinet. He told his boss he was done.
So now where is he at? Fas Gas. Yup, my husband is now a gas jockey. Don't get me wrong, someone has to do it. But it shouldn't be a 34 year old married guy with 2 kids and a new house to pay for right? I mean really, his wage has been almost cut in half. Yikes.
Why doesn't he find a different job? Here's the thing. The guy who owns fas gas is building a new mechanics shop. Hopefully, in 3 months it'll be running. Rob is going to work at that shop, when it's ready, where he'll also be able to continue his car sales.
Therefore, he didn't really think it was fair to take the job at Janzen's, when he knew he'd be done there in a few months.
Matt (fas gas) is also letting Rob park 2 of his cars on the lot for free. He currently has 8. (I'm driving one, he drives one, 2 at fas gas and 4 parked on our yard) He is still operating his business, TAC Auto.
All in all, this worries me a little bit. I mean, our mortgage just went up and his wage just went down...way down. Not to mention that in 1 more month my mat leave is done. Oh boy. Lots of praying is happening, let me tell ya.
