    Sounds like you should have been talking to hr and making records of things.

    Worst case scenario is: one door closes and another door opens...that “in limbo” feeling is scary, but it can also force you into a better opportunity. Entrepreneurs have the scariest feeling of all when they take the risk and step into the unknown. Don’t be afraid to take a risk when it dictates your quality of life...

    Some times it comes down what is more important supporting your family or keeping your dignity

    Always try to line up another job before moving on. In any job, if i get bored, or decide i don't like it, i'll start looking, and see if i can get an offer for somewhere else. Until I have something lined up, I just put up with whatever bullshit has been pissing me off in the knowledge that it'll soon be over.

    FYI, you ABSOLUTELY need to be looking for another job, right now.

    In fact, consider this: your full-time job is to find a better job

    Finding a job is about matching a lot of things. Not just your skills and experience vs the employers wishlist, but also the TIMING. What are the chances that the perfect job is there at the exact time you're looking for it? Pretty slim.

    However, if you look for a new job constantly, your chances are much much higher.

    Not to mention, you are clearly unhappy in this job, you've quit once and then begged to go back. Your boss knows you are unlikely to want to stay. And your boss has also already asked you to train your replacement... your days are numbered... You need to be looking NOW for new jobs.

    Supporting your family comes first.

    I wake up every morning at 4am, we’ll before my wife and daughter are up, catch a bus to my worksite an hour and a half outside of town, start work at 6:30, work 12 hours in often hazardous atmospheres wearing life protecting equipment, and then catch that same bus home at 6:50, getting home anywhere between 8:30 and 9:00 pm, long after my little girl has gone to bed.

    I do this for anywhere from 18-24 days straight before I get 3-4 days off.

    Do I like it? No. But I keep doing it because I have a wife, a two year old and another baby on the way, and nothing else lined up.

    My dignity will take a back seat to my family every time.

    Absolute truth.

    I am victim of this myself. I have a kid and a family so I am always in fear of losing my job which has a high turnover rate.

    I volunteer for things and have done a lot of extra to try and secure a spot later when they start firing people (always happens here). But now I get sucked into a lot of extra BS that I do not want to do while others who refuse do even do what is required still have their jobs.

    Will see if it pays off next time firings come around but yeah, the guy speaks the truth. Now they expect these things from me. It is BS.

    Try to find another job and good luck.

    It all depends on your job market and whether it is easy for you to find a new job. Your CV and the competition from other job seekers should also be taken into consideration before making any move. At the end of the day it is up to you to make the correct decision, just weight everything beforehand.
