Spencer was used to working hard and playing hard. Fridays meshed together with Mondays in the blink of an eye. He didn't have a penny to his name, but he didn't care. He was always surrounded by friends and good times. Spencer didn't have a care in the world, he was often late to work, and a little hungover. But as he got older, he was forced to see things in a different light.

Spencer realized that he always seemed to be surrounded by "friends" whenever he was the one buying the drinks. Whenever he got a late payout, his friends would automatically cancel their plans. But when his own mother passed away and no one showed it, reality finally sunk in, and he knew he deserved so much more than that. But he'd never envision himself ending up like this.

Spencer was used to being the one who always paid for drinks, but when he offered to buy Ashley one, she flat out refused. This took him by surprise. They'd only just met, but he couldn't help but ask himself a million questions. Why did she reject him paying for the drink? Was she rich? Perhaps she was married. Well, as it turns out, she was just an independent young woman with her own money, so she didn't need anyone paying for her drinks. Right then and there, Spencer was hooked. He worked hard to be with her whenever she was free. But he was about to get slapped by reality.

Spencer believed he was the luckiest man in the world. He never understood how he managed to convince Ashley to marry him, but somehow he did. And as the years passed, their family grew from two to five. He was overwhelmed with happiness. He never had to look anywhere or any place besides his home to feel whole. He thought he had his fairytale ending, but fate had a different idea.

Spencer's world came into a halt when his beloved wife Ashley passed away. Her grim diagnosis took the entire family by surprise. Six months ago she'd been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, and just like that, she was gone. He couldn't help but feel like a broken shell of the man he once was. All he wanted to do was stay at home, and grieve along with his kids, who desperately needed him. But his job wasn't so understanding and they gave him an ultimatum. You either come back to working full-time hours, or you're fired. Spencer chose to stay with his children, but he wasn't counting on unemployment being this hard.
