Well for starters, I've been laid off since new years eve. After three months of looking and applying for jobs and no luck, I go talk to my old boss that I used to work for in the oilfield. He brings me back on and things are goin good for the first two weeks. Well friday he said for me to call him this morning and tell me where to go. So I call him at 7:30 and ask, he says he's tryin to figure things out and to call him back in a couple hours. About 15 mins ago he sends me a text message saying " At this moment I do not have an opening for you. Keep in touch and I will see what I can do.Sorry...." This is coming from the owner of a supposibly 25 million dollar oil company....and he doesnt even have the balls to call me back and nut up and tell m like a man..I find it kinda funny. But it is what it is. Good thing I didnt cut my unemployment off. And two weeks ago he said we would be busy for the next year and a half straight. So what happened to all the work? Don't understand people these days.

I feel for ya man. Found out a couple weeks ago that they are closing us down here at the end of April. Sort of seen if coming, but it still sucks. I have a baby on the way in about 4 months, so it really scares me.

Just keep this in mind.... as my wife keeps telling me.. "When one door closes, another one always opens!"

The job market is brutal. I'm graduating with my BS in Law and Justice in June and I'm having a hell of a time finding anything. I'm hoping this turns around soon.
