The funny thing is...

Post by joeschizo on Fri Feb 18, 2011 5:41 pm

First topic message reminder :

I've been unemployed for three years. I lost my home to forclosure and my credit score is ruined.

I figure it will take ten years after finding a job just to get back to where I was in life.

The funny thing is, I wasn't really happy before I lost my job. It's incredibly hard to get motivated because of that. Do I really want to break my back just to be another guy with a mortgage and an ungrateful wife?

I'm thinking of doing something radically different. I just don't know what it is yet.

I will admit I have it better than others with age, but still not as good as it should be. None of us should be discriminated against because of age. I have a good 30 years still to work but I get frustrated about that.

The messed up irony is THEY want US to work longer by raising the SSI age to 70 but with ALL the AGE discrimination telling us if your 35/40+ your hard pressed on getting a good JOB and over 50+ and they say SOL!!! This is CRIMINAL behavior ON ALL Levels.

I know and it's scary. I once asked someone why they do this and they say because older people are out of touch and I disagree. I am very much in touch with technology.

Us over 40 should only employ over 40. It is legal to age discriminate for anyone under 40. Somehow this became backwards. When I was 20, I didn't have enough experience. Now, that is all they want. High School graduate has a better chance to get a job. I have to dummy up and act immature. Perhaps I should carry a skateboard to my interview and do my resume in crayons?

@joeschizo, OP

Losing a home to foreclosure is definitely a rough experience. My wife and bought our home in 1998, we took out a 15 year mortgage and kept paying ahead until we made the last payment in January 2004. We passed on expensive vacations and new cars until we found out we were expecting our first and only.

Hope things are looking better for you now.

When we took on a debt like that, I wanted it to be our priority to pay it down.
