The Bicycle: It may be necessary to sell one or more to stay afloat.
The VRWC: I don't normally talk about my situation, but at this point, I don't know how much it really matters.
Just over a year ago, I was fired from a six-figure job for reasons that remain unclear. I had just turned 60. Our department was successful in our mission. I was sent off to perform audits autonomously at company field sites and there was no indication I had done a less-than-satisfactory job. What was used against me were things that were documented as having no bearing on performance. I'was stripped of my severance and sent out to fend for myself. I have applied to many positions well within my experience, all to no avail. I have worked as an Uber driver (which I really enjoy, but will never pay the mortgage), a mechanic at a boat shop, a project manager for a concrete construction company and a septic tank inspector. I can't even get a callback for a job in my field. I'm not going to cry "discrimination", though all the evidence points that way.
Anyway, I am down to my last $100 or so with no prospects for a bailout. My savings and what retirement remained after my divorce are expended. There is nowhere to go and no option but to sell everything. And that is only a temporary solution. I need a job with a steady paycheck.
