More appropriately, I have a room. I keep up my grandmother's yard and house, and help her raise my dead-beat aunt's daughter in exchange for a
room. Like I said, home is all I've got, and it aint mine.
As for the truck; I worked my butt off to afford it and I work my butt off to keep the dang thing running, because I'm above stealing one.
and you got parents that at least do want to help you out, but your just to proud to accept it.
You're dang right I am. My parents are great and I love them to death, but I owe it to them and myself to sort my own life out now. What kind of
grown man comes home from the USMC and starts mooching off his folks during what are supposed to be the best years of their lives?
stop whinging and do something about it i say.
If it offends you that I choose to blow off a little steam talking to my friends in the rant forum, which is designed for such purposes, show yourself
the door; there are other forums.
As for do something about it, what the hell do you think I'm doing? I've turned down every bit of help I've been offered, accepted every bit of
advice I've been offered (save yours), and things will be good as new in a two months tops.
i have picked up some pretty good clothes off seats in parks and shops and stuff, people just forgot about them.
Hey, you wouldn't happen to be the prick who "picked up" my seabag and back pack friday night, would you? You're a petty thief, and that's
disgusting. You can tell yourself they've forgotten them all you like, but we both know dang well that you're jacking stuff from people who made the
mistake of setting something down and walking away or turning their backs for a few minutes. If that's where your character is, enjoy it while it's
good and keep an eye on your karma, but I've got my integrity.
problem is getting alcohol. its harder. but if your not fussy still incredibly cheap
I think we've pinpointed your problem amigo. I've got nothing against a little whiskey now and then, but I've got a thought or two for anyone who
burns cash on booze when he's so shy on cash that he needs to go cheap on it.
I probably wont be drinking much till the semester's over, but when that comes around me and a couple of buddies are splitting the cost of some
Maker's Mark, Gold Label.
By the way guys, another thing hit me recently that I'd forgotten all about. I've got a really nice tax return coming since I was earning so much
the first half of last year, but then left work to go back to school. The more I think about all this, the less tragic it all seems, I've gotta say.
You know how when something unexpected first hits you it just takes a while to settle down and take stock of how much of it is serious and how much of
it is strictly emotional?
