Default It's cold here Need new job

It's cold and Sh&tty here and I hate winter. Do any of you in south Florida need a good responsible employee. I am ready for a change. My kids are grown and I have nothing keeping me here.

Good luck getting a real job down here. Businesses are going under left and right. I'm even moving back to cold and sh&tty Ohio.

It might help if you tell us what skills you have.

Mark, I remember in another thread you saying you were moving back up this way, What part of OH are you from/moving too?
I was planning on dropping everything and moving to Tampa/St. Pete area about 5 yrs ago and buying a liveaboard housboat, and then an opportunity came up here in Cincitucky that brought us here.
The winter isn't nearly as $hitty as Toledo where I grew up...

I can do about anything that a person with common sense can do. With that I have been in management, owned a couple of my own business, own real estate, can do construction, about anything mechanical. I have never let anything limit me on doing anything except not having a formal degree for it. Have been self employed most my life and I know I would make a good employee.

I spent a lot of time in Austin and loved it. Lake Travis was great. I am not against considering it but I like Florida.

You like Florida? Why? We have the rudest, most self-centered, selfish, inconsiderate, rotten people living here in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area. Most of the people would just as soon run you over on the highway or in the supermarket with their carts. Forget anyone looking you in the eye. If you're nice and polite to people, they mistake it for weakness and try to take advantage of you.
The only reasonable people you'll meet here are from the midwest.
If I wasn't so damn old and established here I would leave and start over somewhere else.

Oh yeah, the tap water sucks and never gets cold. Most of the cops are idiots and couldn't solve a crime if their lives depended on it.

Otherwise it's a pretty nice place to live.

Well Ed I always find your writings interesting and informative. I hate cold weather and I love boating. I have a house on the Lake of the Ozarks which is nice 4 months a year. Not really any decent jobs there and it still snows there. Florida has good water and I love the waterways. Maybe I'm wrong but if the economy gets bad there I might be able to switch my Lake place for one on the waterway somewhere there. I understand what you are saying about the people and thought it might be a plus if I was the exception.
