When I signed up I really thought this was the way I was gonna go. Life took a giant s h i t on me when my wife killed herself last October and the result is a complete upheaval of absolutely everything.
I've decided to stay in the corporate world with the steady pay, health benefits, etc., in order to get my #1 priority, my 14 year old daughter, through college. I'm damn good at what I do - commercial building maintenance - don't make half bad money at it, and have worked out working 4 ten hour shifts for them so I can run the household better. I can't afford to go out on a limb right now.
I've gotten some cool tools out of the deal, learned a lot that I can apply to my 9-5. I'll still be around until my dues run out. Thanks to those that helped me and I hope I've helped an inspector or two.
