Hello From The Unemployment Line

(Tuesday 16 August 2016) by Rick Clot
Well here's an interesting turn of events since my last post. About five weeks ago I quit my part time job as an airport shuttle service driver working for a company called ABS (Arizona's Best Shuttle). The company was sold and merged with another shuttle company, Sun City Express. I elected not to move to the new company for a few reasons mostly because of how their drivers are treated a little differently. So about a week ago I got a call from an ex ABS employee who told me he was tossing around the idea of starting his own shuttle business and asked if I would be interested in coming back to work for him if he could get this thing off the ground. He said he wanted to talk about it over breakfast and I told him I'd be happy to discuss the possibility but as yet I haven't heard back from him. Time will tell. I've also been in some conversations with a friend of mine here in the community who has his own private shuttle business and is looking to get out from under the responsibility since he is buying a motorhome and he and his wife want to travel around the country. I told him I might be interested in taking it over from him and now we're just trying to work out the details. The sticking point is that he wants to sell the business and I don't want to buy it. Right or wrong, I have a problem with someone selling a business who had no financial outlay to start and no ongoing overhead to keep it running. I guess if it was my business I'd probably try to make a profit too but there is just something that doesn't sit right with me. Anyway, I'm hoping one of these two opportunities pans out. I could use a few extra bucks in my pocket. There always seems to be too much month at the end of the money.

Until Next Time,
Unemployed in Surprise,
