    How many layoffs a year do I suffer before I tell them to bite me?

    Use the lay-off time to look for something else—that way if you find something new, great! And if not? You’ll still have something to go back to. Can’t hurt to try, right?

    I'd sign up for the coffee - nap's give me headaches so I cannot take them anyway. I'd donate my nap time if it were a possibility.

    This. Or use the time to promote your skills and pick up some side jobs. Or learn a new side gig, like flipping stuff online, I have recently picked this up and honestly it is going quite well. Well enough that I hope to give up my 2nd job by the end of the year and focus more on flipping.

    The only thing that's keeping some of my employees at work is the fact that they won't get paid on voluntary furlough.

    They really don’t deserve you. You consistently have bent over backwards for them and they repay you like this?

    I really hope you find something.

    You know where’s there’s a surplus of jobs?

    I really like that idea. After I read this about you the other day (and from following Gary Vaynerchuk on IG) I found myself at a thrift store with the thought of flipping on my mind.

    Thank you. I do. I have for what feels like twice a week since the day I started this job, lol.

    I love it! There really is money to be made. Start following flipping groups on FB, listen to podcasts, Youtube videos. Do some research, I researched for about 3 months, I was really scared to start but it has paid off big time. I love doing it and it's easier than I ever thought it would be.

    eta: you just never know what you could find, I bought 12 original My Little Ponies last week at a garage sale for $5. I took a bit of a gamble buying but figured at worst my 10 year old would end up with some ponies just like I had when I was 10. Last night I got around to cleaning them and researching, just one of them is super rare and will go for $80 by itself. The rest will bring in another $200ish when they sell. Going home tonight to get them all listed.

    Yes they are! I am addicted to going to them and have apps downloaded to plan out my Friday afternoons and Sundays when I am not working already!

    Quoted to add most anything will sell, research it a bit before buying if you can or trust you gut, I trusted my guy at an estate sale last week and picked up this ugly *kitten* vintage fieldmaster trucker style hat that appeared to have never been worn for $1. Listed it Sunday night and had 4 offers in 5 minutes, someone else swooped in and bought it at full asking price before I could even counter those offers. $25 profit for about 10 minutes of work, every little bit adds up.
