Gary Fixler can identify with this.
I’ve been working out of country for a couple of years to earn a decent tax-free income. However, with the global economic downturn last year, and the radical decline in commodity prices, The project I was on was shut down before Christmas and I’ve been without an income since. Not that I haven’t been working mind you, a farm has a never ending list of things that need doing, so I’ve been working, just not earning.
Anyway, the ouch part is that I went for a pre-employment medical today, and had to renew almost all of my travel vaccinations. I hate needles (except acupuncture) and I got royally needled this afternoon. I’m leaving for deep dark Africa again soon, and I have but a few short days to finish off all projects in progress, and treat my machines for storage conditions. It is going to be at least a couple of months before I get to use them again.
Hang tight Gary – your turn will come too.
