I feel your pain.
I have done the same job, at the same place for 28 years ..March the 15th 2004.
I need a change.......at 55 I am not ready to quit work....but I can retire
with full retirement.
I cannot see well enough to go back and do close machine shop work. With all the new paint health concerns...I do not want to paint cars. I am NOT good with the public so my own repair shop is a no go.
So I continue to make signs........
