I am so mad (and happy) right now! Right now, my DH works full time (48 hours) and goes to school full time (about 20 or so hours).

His work sat him down today and basically implied he had to quit school, or risk being demoted to a part time associate. He's a member of management right now, so that would be a devastating loss of income and well .... respect.

He said he was bummed that he had to quit school, but also happy because he really missed being around us (Danny and I). Danny cries when he leaves and says "noooooooo" and gets all upset. It really hurts to see that day after day. Whenever Randy is home, he just wants to be with him. He'll follow him and stand at the shower waiting for him to get out. It's cute, but it's sad. KWIM?

So in a way, I am really sad about Randy not being able to go to school and finish. He is going to try and do online courses at a different college (the one he goes to now doesn't offer it) ... but on the other hand, I am going stark raving mad here alone for 14 hours a day without him around. He's my best friend in the world, we love spending all of our time together ... so it's been a real shock to us both to be seperated from 8am to 11pm every day. Literally - no days off.

So it sucks on one hand, but it's good on the other. I think he is going to apply for a PD job sometime soon, to try and get away from the place he works now. He wants to be a cop ... so he'll be applying at a few places (CHP, the local PD, even Las Vegas and stuff).

Sigh. Everything happens for a reason I guess. Hey .. maybe this means I am pregnant!

That sucks. But you can't risk loss of income....hopefully he can find a school that allows him to take an online course from home!

That stinks that he has to quit school. But, that's wonderful that he'll be home more. I know you've been missing him.

I hope he can take some online courses.

Online courses are the best option in your situation - but to me college is important. It's the only way to better your life and it doesn't last forever. Sometimes you have to sacrifice to be successful in the long run.

wow, that is a shame. it is almost like his work is telling him he cant go to school (which they should not be able to do that) to hold him back so they can keep him as a employee there instead of him futhering his education to get a better paying job. I dont think anyone can "force" him to quit. I would be looking into that a little more-I have never heard of a job forcing you to quit school. If he hasnt been late for work and has been doing his job then why cant he keep on going like he is? Maybe he should just tell them that he did quit and just keep going to school. How would they know unless he talks about it, ya know? Justin works for the military and he is aloud to go to school and or get a second job like he just got. He works from 8-2 at Valvaline(sp?) and then goes to the base from 3-11pm. He pulls a all day also and still keeps up with everything. I dont see why Randy going to school is a big deal, not unless like I said before they just want to hold him back from leaving their place for a better paying job. CRAZY!

Why can't he go part time? It may take longer but at least he won't have to repeat all the classes he has put time into. HUGS

He really should check into doing online courses. My DH is doing that right now through 2 different schools actually and he is doing criminal justice. PM me if you want any info.

That sucks. Why would a job say quit school or risk being demoted to pt. As long as he is able to handle going to work full time and going to school. Who cares. But it is nice now he'll be home for the family. When my dh was in school. I missed him being around for us. But was glad he was able to work on another degree to help him with his career. But he too was forced to quit. All because the money for school ran out. I am angry for that.
