  •  Being "Retired" (none)
    Think of the meaning of the word "retirement" in the movie "Blade Runner" when you look at that subject line.

    My husband is 53 years old. He has been unemployed since 1999. He's looked. Nobody's hiring a guy that old, not even Wal*Mart. They want to wait until you are 65 and getting Medicare, then they will be happy to take your employment application again. Basically, my husband has been "retired" by the Bush economy.

    I'm 42 and back at school. I'm in my Junior year at a university. However, in order to get any sort of job with the BA degree I will receive, I have two more years of Post-Grad. At least. I just got approved for $500 in work-study from Financial Aid. W00h00. That sure saves our bacon. Not.

    I'm sure we are far from being alone.

    GOP = Spies, lies, borrowing & binging.
