My husband has been working on the road lately with a new crew (its him, his boss, and another guy that has the same title as he does, they lay cable in the ground and also on telephone poles) and everything was going wonderful, its hard on us both with him being away all week since we hadn't ever been apart before but he is making money we really really need. And the past few weeks the dynamic in the crew has been changing with the boss starting to treat hubby like a 3rd wheel, leaving him out of everything, not responding after sending him driving all over running errands for him, going out to eat with the other ground hand without my hubby, sending my hubby to drive and do work while he and the other ground hand go back to the hotel and shower, get haircuts, etc. He is out there to learn and all the teaching has stopped plus now there is almost zero communication from the boss to him. He is very stressed out and on top of everything now the other ground hand that is out there with them (who was previously nice to him) just started yelling at him. We really need him to stay on this crew, this is the most money he has made in a really long time but he now thinks that after they come back home this go around they will kick him off their crew (which would mean he would be home every night but his paychecks would be terrible)Just the one last cherry on top while he is out there with all this stress, he isn't going to get to come home until this coming Thursday or Friday and he has been gone since last Monday(longest we have ever been apart), not only that, today is his birthday and it is breaking my heart 1 that he isn't here with us and 2 that he is 5 hours away being treated like dirt all day on his birthday. Please just say a prayer for him to have strength and patience with the people he is working with. That he can let it roll off his shoulders and not take it personally. And maybe also to soften the hearts of those he works with, that they might explain if/what he has done so he can learn and know if he did something that wasn't correct. Sorry for the long post, I am just sitting her crying and wishing I had the gas money to drive out there with the kids because I would in a heartbeat!!
