My name is Avery,
I’m embarrassed that my life has brought me here. Months ago i had money and opportunities but it’s been a strange series of unlucky events.
I was excited and wanted to get into welding, automotive or something hands on. I was applying to every possible entry level job that was even relatively related. I finally found a company that was small and developing. I related to this they told me I’d be trained and then hired after a week and i had money saved for this. Everyone was kind to me and respectful. I worked with a family oriented man who knew a lot and i worked hard every instance i could. The first week passed and nothing came of it i had payed for everything and even gave up on other opportunities to get experienced. Two weeks passed and I asked when I would be hired. I got strange a response of uncertainty. I should have just left then and looked for legitimate work. But I stayed for 3 weeks and blew through most of my money trying to get experienced in the diesel Technician field. Later it came to light that the company was facing a lawsuit and hadn’t filed taxes for 2 years! I was discouraged and disheartened to say the least.
I left and looked for new work and found myself at a Chevrolet dealership working as a technician everything was going alright until they left me alone after a week. I was pulling a car in but the shop was set up in a fashion that there was a tight corner. I scraped a truck’s bed bad. The people in the shop said they had seen worse and even made it seem like nothing would really come of it. I was dismissed from the shop for 3 days waiting to hear when i could come back in. They called me in when the manager arrived. I was fired on the spot.
The month following I struggled to find work and finally went back to the temp agency i had been to many times. I found a job that was simple. It gave me time to clear my head and even gave me new friends. I had fun it felt stable. Meanwhile three people were talking behind my back. I had felt so confident and felt happy like i could slowly get my dream of becoming a musician together. I was buying a few things on my credit card and thought i could pay it back quick because everything felt alright. I was fired and had little room to pay my bills. I now have a speeding ticket on top with no way to pay it.
I’ve lasted a month now, no one is hiring me. I’ve sold some of my equipment. Even if i were to sell everything i have right now. I wouldn’t have enough to make it. Even if I get a job Monday. I can only get to next month…maybe.
This is embarrassing and I’m hurt I did this to myself. I hope someone out there is reading this and can understand.
