A few weeks ago, my parents and my wife and I had a huge falling out. My father was very mean to me and my wife simply said that he cannot talk to me like that. At that time I did work for my father's custom cabinet business and worked hard. My father told my wife to shut up and refused to apologize over the matter. I still worked for him although he had even said that he wanted to keep boss and dad seperate. This is not a family business. I was an employee working for an employer who happened to be my father. So, at work these past few weeks my father has approached me about the situation, refusing to admit his wrongs even after we apologized for the wrongs we may have committed. I could not say anything in fear of losing my job. I did get a recording on my phone of him cornering me in the shop and interrogating me on this issue and even saying that he hated my wife. I still kept my mouth shut. Finally, that following Friday after work, I got a phone call from my mother. She had left a voice mail saying that I was fired over this situation. I couldn't believe that my parents could be so irrational and to be wrongfully terminated over a non-work related issue is a bit ridiculous.
So now my wife and I are stuck with a house that we cannot afford and bills keep rolling in and problems with our car keep sparking up. We are selling the house because we cannot afford it and we are selling lots of our stuff. I did find a job but with almost half the pay of my other job and about 50 minutes away. We could barely afford everything with my good paying job. I don't like to ask for money but when you are in dire need of kind people and you have done everything else to try to earn more money, you really have to do what you have to do.
I am setting this fundraiser up in hopes to pay our bills, help me find a better paying job, and help us move back to Kansas City where my wife's family resides to try to make our living better there. We do not have kids yet, but we really want a big family. So I have to find a secure and great paying career. I would go to school but have no money to. I will work hard for every dollar earned and will not give up. I will forever thank you, and will make note of every person who has helped me so that I may help them later.
