My previous boss from two jobs ago, he and I were both laid off at the same time at the same meeting. We were the last two employees left and the CEO shut the building down. We went over to his son’s shop and he showed me around, then I was over at his place having lunch and he just picked up his phone and called his son and they were talking for a few minutes and then he just said, “So … when does Landon start?” A month later after helping out at my Mom’s ranch with some things I was working full time again. His son’s shop was a brand new start up and was badly in need of me; they needed an I.T. person, a telephone person, a computer tech, and an electronic repair technician, and I know how to do all that. Without my previous boss making that phone call I’m not sure where I would be right now.
