Yeas, there should definitely be money put aside for times like these, or possibly some line of credit form one of his banks.
Frankly, I don't think either of hose are possible.
I think he only makes about as much as I do in a year.
I guess the missus and I are going to have to talk about what we need more, the guaranteed income or the flexible schedule.
I know he will make good on it when he can, no worries there.
