    Hi everyone,
    Some 7-8 years ago I was a member on the GIM forum. I'm not sure this is the same one.. but I see some familiar names. Anyway.. long story short I lost my job, and had to cash in every single piece of PM I owned just to survive 3 years with no job. Yep 3 long hard years selling off some nice stuff I have had for decades. Then.. a divorce. But you dont want to get bogged down in all that. Good news is that I'm back in PM and started buying once again just this past weekend.
    :party30::party30:

    :banana::banana:

    I may never get back what was lost.. but it just feels good to hold some silver again.

    SilverTuesday is back in the game!!

    Welcome back...not trying to bust your balls, but I can't help but ask why it took 3 years to find a job? I hear stories like that and it always leaves me scratching my head as to why. Personally, I would settle for a job at Walmart or something similar versus selling every last ounce of my PM's. While you don't get far on a $10/hour job, it's better than a $0/hour no job situation, right? Playing with numbers and assuming $10/hour for 25 hours/week, you would gross about $39000, net about $27000 during that span. Again that doesn't go far over 3 years, but at today's silver prices would have let you hold on to 1300+ ounces. Am I being too simplistic?

    I did work during that time.. its was just at a much lower rate than what I was used to.. and being single didnt help. So I did take the crapp jobs, and some of that time I even worked 2 jobs and that didnt pay the bills.. I still needed the PM to cover the difference. I should have been more clear and say that it took me 3 years to find a GOOD job. One that would pay me enough to survive. Try paying a house payment, car payment, taxes, utilities, and groceries on $10 an hour and 25 hours a week and see how it adds up for you. And for the record it was more like $8.50 an hour in retail.

    Theres one in every bunch..

    Your original post stated "...and had to cash in every single piece of PM I owned just to survive 3 years with no job." Emphasis on no job, now you said you had one or even two jobs. If you had said that originally, I wouldn't have asked why one would have NO job for 3 years. Trust me, I know all too well what it's like to have to do crap jobs after a good paying one. I went through that about 5 years ago and also had to cash in some PM's to make ends meet. Like I said, I am not trying to bust your balls, just trying to figure out why one would go 3 years with no job as you said the first time. The "there's one in every bunch" comment really wasn't necessary was it? I wasn't trying to be rude to you, so if it came across that way I apologize.

    Not that you ever want to HAVE to sell anything, but I suppose you could do a lot worse than selling off these past few years and buying back now considering the trend of spot prices.
