Anybody here ever find themselves with a case of Golden Handcuffs? If you're not familiar with the term it essentially means finding ones self unwilling to accept employment at another company due to a variety of factors but usually financial. Typically the jump would result in someone making significantly less money for an extended period of time. The grass is always greener on the other side of course... but I have friends who are now working for places such as Allegiant and Virgin America. When they post photos on Facebook it looks like fun. (That A320 is a gentleman's airplane) But I just couldn't make the numbers work for many, many, years (or in some cases - ever). To paraphrase a popular cereal commercial: "The kid in me would love to apply at Virgin America! But the grown up in me knows it doesn't make sense to do so." That ever happen to you? Have you reached a point in your profession where it would be financially irresponsible to make a move voluntarily? Do you still fantasize about those other positions even though you know they're no good for you? lol Still love my job (don't get me wrong) just feeling restless.
