yOUR FRIENDS ARE UNGRATEFUL AND SOUND A LITTLE STUCK UP. I can say this because I am poor.
I have been unemployed from my field for 2.5 years. I use to make $80k a year as a civil engineering designer. I do accounting occasionaly for a pool
company and twirl signs when I can get work. My wife is a nurse. I live outside sacramento ca. I go door knocking every week whenever we are out,
looking for a job, any job....60 hours a week would be a dream. My wife currently works for a staffing company that staffs hopitals with nurses when
they are short handed. She works 1-2 days a week on a good week, but can go 2 weeks without any work.
I lost my home that I had paid $80,000 down on the year before. I use to own a 2005 Infinti G35, and a 2006 Nissan Titan, I now drive a 1991 chevy
We applied for housing assitance 2 years ago and they are still back logged.
Me, my wife, and our 3 kids live with my parents. Plus my brother has been layed off and lives there also. Thats 8 people in a 3 bedrrom house. My dad
is also unemployed. We all pool our money together to make rent, and buy food.
Heck, we cant even afford utilites. Air conditioning and heating are a luxury we dont have. We used the heater this winter during a cold month and got
an $800 electric bill, now we have payments to pay it back of $150 a month, plus $300 a month just to run the min needed.
I have a bad back, and a messed up elbow, not to mention tinnitus, high blood pressure....list goes on....oh and no insurance. Try twirling a sign in
110 degree temps for 12 hours with a bad back. I do anything I can, dont have the luxury to lick my wounds.
My point is there is nothing special about their situation, there are millions worse off then them. 3 bedrooms for 3 people, get real. They are poor,
take what you can get. If we were offered a 1 bedroom and CPS said they wouldnt take out kids we would be in heaven.
One more thing, anyone know of any work in the Sacramento area I would love to hear from you. Its really hard to get even an interview these days.
Just thought I would ask.
Tell your friends to be grateful because what they are being offered many arent and would jump on if they were.
If this kid has lived with them since 3 months then why cant it sleep in their room.....do they know how many people are homeless....no on cares
about the boyfriends religious views, tell him to go ask his church for money. he should worry about keeping a roof over their head and food on the
Not trying to be rude, but the attitude of some people and what they expect, its gross.....go live in tent city for a few weeks and that one bedroom
will look like a mansion....
