I'm going to another minimum pay job today just hope I make it. It's seasonal work for delivering mail and packages during the Christmas season. I'm fortunate and I realize so many are not.

My son is a server but he's 30 and has lots of energy. He lives here with my wife and me. My wife and I are are out of work but I look every day. Something will break cause I won't give up. I taught for almost 18 years so I get my retirement from them. We've got a couple of boarders so that helps too but soon our health insurance will run out. I've got a college education but I'm 59 years old but I will not give up no matter how down I may get. I'm sober!

Advertise yourself as a consultant. Hire out for private parties. You have too much experience to throw in the towel now. Just refold the towel and "shake that thang" lady...(the drink that is...)

I too have had big age discrimination in employment since I turned 50. Not cute enough anymore. Sickening. I had to look at plenty of not too cute people when I was a bartender.
