I quit what most people would have considered my job a long time ago.

i am saying yes but this is yes to a limited time. i could survive for maybe a month or so but not for much longer.

I could afford to quit my job if I had another one lined up for similar money. wink

I picked the last three, because I'm a special case. I don't have a job but am on SSI. The likelihood of me getting a job, around here, is less than 2%. That's how tough it is. I wouldn't work for a job unless it paid more than my supplemental income, otherwise there is no point. People like me don't get promotions.

I could at the moment but would have to look for something else within a month or two to be able to keep up with my living expenses

Sure....if I wanted to live in a cardboard box.

Huh? I don't know of anyone who can afford to quit their job. If they could, why would they be working? I can never quit working. I must work until I die. 28 years on the mortgage and almost 55 years old, no retirement money...........

Yes, if I wanted to.

I could manage on my savings for quite a number of years.
posted 2-Apr-2007 10:03pm  
No, but that's why I'm looking for a rich man.

QUIT my job? I just GOT my job.
No, I couldn't.... unfortunately, I have to do something to earn

No job. Early retirement. But it's not easy living on it. But then it wasn't easy living on what I used to make when working, either.

Don't have one. Disabled. But I can't afford to stop doing the work I do at home, such as cleaning, laundry, caring for pets and running some errands.

No; but it's only a temporary job.
posted 3-Apr-2007 2:05pm  
Only if I got another job straight away.

I hope so, seeing as I am going to be leaving at the end of July...

Do you mean can I afford to retire? Certainly not! But I can afford to take a five-year leave of absence from full-time employment to go back to university? I think it may be possible by incurring lots of debt...I do find the prospect rather frightening to be perfectly honest, but I'll make it work somehow.

I'm the sole breadwinner for my family, so I think not.
posted 4-Apr-2007 3:25pm  
Hah! God no.
posted 5-Apr-2007 3:15pm  
Sure. But why would I want to do that?
posted 6-Apr-2007 2:07am  
I currently do not have a job. I am looking for one so I can contribute to the household. We could afford to have me keep being a stay-at-home mom, but we'd never get out of debt.

I have no job, and I can afford not to work.

My brain doesn't work properly. I have trouble with memory- but this has improved immensely recently, trouble with organization, trouble following directions, mood fluctuations, irrational periods, etc. Add social anxiety.
(reply to RGirl) posted 7-Apr-2007 7:16am  
That sounds serious.Was it caused by an accident?
posted 7-Apr-2007 6:18pm  
Hahahah no
(reply to Maarten) posted 7-Apr-2007 6:53pm  
A mishap during surgery.

I don't have a job, other.
The question I could answer better would be Can I afford to do nothing?
when I did have a 'job', I couldn't afford not to leave, the job was slowly killing me.

oooOOOOOOooooooo! Look at that "10" on your shield! Pretty fancy!

surprise !

Technically, I'm not sure if I could quit my job as I'm self employed. Maybe I could fire myself.

Not really.
