At the rigt time. My cousin came up about 10 years ago and offered me a job to run his paint company but the wife wouldn’t move back to Alabama. Now the sister called me today and as we were talking her husband came in pissed because he just fired his cabinet maker. Said if I’d come back he’d keep busy full time..

Wife or work… Weighing the difference….

Two questions:
Why won’t the wife move?
Does a job there offer more than one in MO…..if you have one in MO that is?

Oh! one more. How attached are you to your wife and what will it cost to leave her?

Kids are here.

She’s been at her job 15 years and it may not pay the same as it does in KC…

Wife is like a unisaw and worked flawlessly, but there’s always a new and improved model out there..

Do u not like your current job? I found a great job that I liked but it was on the other end of the country and it just wasn’t worth uprooting my whole life and family to go there when the job I currently have is pretty good. If your job sucks mayb there is a way to get another one closer by.
My guess is that your wife is happy/comfortable where she is so she is reluctant to move which is the case for most ppl
Is there anything u can do on the side for your BIL that u can build and ship to him as a side job?

So if your wife found a great job in another state I assume you’d move with no comment?

How can you take a job if you are on disability?

Like someone said “Happy wife…happy life!” Getting a woman to move away from her kids can be tough.
