I left my employer voluntarily during the recession. It allowed me time to concentrate on my personal life. I had some severe health issues (I'm better now), and my mother was going through the exact same health issues but farther on in progression(gotta love genetics). Well, being a one-income family and with my Park Avenue gone, I did not want to take on another car payment. I figured if I was going to buy a pre-owned vehicle, it had to be one I could love and have an affair with on a daily basis. She would be my mistress. So, I bought a 1995 Buick Riviera.
