Sorry to read this. The retail automotive industry seems like such a cut throat business. Heck the Sales Piranhas are bad enough when sitting in the Customer waiting room. Key is no eye contact!
I like to make eye contact and ask them questions I know they can't answer, and watch them lie lie lie to my face.Sorry to read this.

I feel your despair, My brother lost his job to a mill closure at 51 years old, he is now an electrician apprentice. I wish you lots of luck, I see that the independent idea has been kicked around here but I just wanted to add my thoughts.So after 14 1/2 years of loyal work at my dealership, 12 as a tech, 2 1/2 as a supervisor, my new 2 week old service manager decides my position isn't needed anymore as of tomorrow. The only job they offered was a flat rate tech position doing GM recalls. Ha, what a joke, I could make more money selling Ice Cream. Looks like I'm looking for new employment as a 48 year old..... So, how's your day going???
To keep myself busy, dropped down to being an FAA certified tech, was building up quite a business gaining more and more airports. But last year, FAA is dropping all of the ground navigational equipment. Now going to GPS with code stored in flashram, good luck with this. Code for landing is to be done by upgrading important landing data via VHF. How dumb can they get, not only hackable, but very easily interfered with.
Only perquisite to become head of important governmental agencies like the FAA or the FCC is to help the president get elected. Wasn't that bad under Bush, FAA was against GPS for the reasons given, sure changed under Obama, put idiots in charge, not only at the top, but all the way down the ladder. Was thinking about quitting anyway, a lot easier to deal with intelligent people than idiots. Didn't know a darn thing about avionics, more critical on if the grass was cut properly or maybe we should planting some flowers, not kidding on this.WOW.... TLS and ILS being replaced with that. I am only somewhat aware of the limitations of GPS, I can only imagine some of the countermeasures they would have to impliment to keep it as close to a quality landing as possible in all conditions.
I do the same thing, asking specific questions about engine options, drive options, etc.I like to make eye contact and ask them questions I know they can't answer, and watch them lie lie lie to my face.
