  •  I am the epitome of the working poor, not proud (12+ / 0-)

    I work, my wife has a degenerative disk problem so she cannot work (no SSI) and we have 4 kids. I make an embarrassing small amount, that is too low to share. I work full time, and am away from my family as my position was eliminated in my town. I live in the shittiest apt 4 hours away from my home. I am late on both rents, and I will be eating Top Ramen again tonight with rice. Yech. Maybe beans and rice. whatever. We are 10 days away from our food card being loaded and we have no money or credit on the card. I have a work cell, and I was talking to my wife today-looks like the food pantry for us. No money for gas. No money for kids clothes or school supplies.

    I hate my life, but always the cheery face for the kids, and that is easy because our kids are great.

    Hey, that was a fucking downer, sorry folks!

    Obama/Biden 2012, because without them, I have no idea what life we would have.
