I only suggested gigolo in an effort to make him see to keep the job he has. But if, as you say, you are about to be laid off as I was, then draw your unemployment, look for work, and take out a student loan and enroll in a continuing education program. Either a brick and mortar College, or Uni as ya'll call them. Or a online college, or even a vocational school.
The most important thing is to make lemon aid from the lemons life deals you. If you are about to lose your job, take this opportunity to improve yourself and your station in life. I would have never enrolled in school had I not been laid off. But now that I'm back in I'm really enjoying it. And when the economy does turn around, I'll be in line for a considerably better paying job than I had to begin with.
edit; I would not advise getting into trucking, or lorrie driving. The money is good yes, but the hours are horrible, too much time away from home. Not to mention the effects it has on the body. Unless you relish the idea of needing glasses, from squinting through a windshield, having a face full of wrinkles, same reason, and ending up with a prostrate the size of a grapefruit from sitting to much and bouncing up and down in the seat, avoid it like you would Swine Flu.
Sorry if my post seemed obtuse. I miss understood the OP. I thought they were merely dissatisfied with their current job. It didn't appear they were about to be laid off, or suffering financially.
