I'm so disappointed

Back in Dec, dh was offered a job that would start this June. His hours would become more reasonable, his earning potential would double, if not triple, and he'd be 9 miles closer to home.

All he'd have to do is pass the license exam.

So, we paid $100 for the pre-license course. $90 for the test. $53 for the fingerprinting. Then he failed.

$90 again for the test. Failed again.

$90 again for the test. Failed again.

Im seriously fighting back tears right now. So much was counting on this job.

We were going to try for a second child and now we can't because we won't be able to afford it with our current income.

We can't do any family vacations because his current job doesn't allow him the time off. No holiday travel. No family time on weekends. Or ever.

I'm so, SO upset.

I am sorry. I can't believe they charge for the test. My husband had to pass a test for his job now. It was free. I hope he can pass or find something else.

What is the test? Maybe he should take the course again and then try the test again.

The classes cost $300-$400 and are only offered while he's at work. He'd have to quit his job to take the class and then there's no guarantee that he'd pass at that point.

He says he just doesn't understand the questions. Like they use too many big words that wouldn't be a part of his study materials, but are rather just semi-advanced general vocabulary.
