Complaining that " he has had so many jobs" , " what is wrong with him, that he cant keep a job" ... etc... and it drives me crazy .
My husband is a college grad and a hard worker... as soon as he was done with college he got a 'starter job" ( it wasnt what he wanted but he made enough to support us, since this is when we got married and had our first baby) ... after 2 years, he moved to another job ( which was a move up from the first one, but still wasnt what he wanted to do with his life , nor what he went to school for, but it was a good paycheck to support our family) , after a year there he got a job offer to work with a lawyer ( and good money) and of course he though this was a good move... 3 months later the lawyer let him go and gave his job to his pregnant mistress ( we are in a small town and everyone knows this ) , he imediatly took another job ( like a factory job) to get us by, and after a month they shut down...
A month after losing that job he was able to get into a temp agency ( they find you a temp job until you can move on ) ... so he has been working there since then, and today was offered his dream job ....
We were both very excited because this is his dream job and it has wonderful pay and benefits ( it is also a long lasting company and would be something that will stay around even if the economy gets worse) ... THIS is the job he has been working for all of these years...
I was so happy and proud that I had to call everyone to tell them... and yet the only things they could say is " why the heck did he get another job for" ... That makes me angry...
I mean of course he has had alot of jobs, but it isnt like he is working a month or two and quitting to mooch off of the system or something.... he has had that many jobs because he is a hard worker who does everything to get a job ( even one that he hates) just so he could take care of his family ! I mean this will be his 5th job in 7 years but the one he is at now is a temp job - he couldnt stay at this job forever anyways and two of them he couldnt help it - he was let go for reasons beyond his control....
I am just tired of feeling like I have to explain my husband , like he is some loser when he is actually a great husband and father who is just trying to take care of his family !!!!

At lease he HAS a job, so I'd throw that back at them. I don't think you have anything to be embarrassed or ashamed of! He sacrificed and now it's paid off. Some of the jobs had nothing to do with him or his performance.
