I’ve been trying to scrimp and save every dime I have to move in with my best friend on the 15th. My family, whom I love dearly, are foolish and irresponsible when it comes to money. I’ve been left in the difficult position of either leaving here with a somewhat guilty concious or staying to make sure that everyone eats everyday.
Yes, its like that.
I’ve shelled out so much money in these past few weeks at a time where my hours at work have been cut by more than half that I don’t have enough to move. I’ve filled out job application after job application from customer service rep to dishwasher and I’ve gotten no callbacks.
Last night I tried to come to grips with the next step. I promised myself that I would never go back to this should crushing option again, but it looks like I have to put my spirits aside for money.
Temp work is in my future.
Don’t know about it? Let me tell you about temp work. You wake up well before the sunrise to stand outside of the temp office. It usually opens around 5:30 am, and if you get there around 5 am there is likely to already be a line.
Once you get indoors, you sign in and wait: maybe for a half hour, maybe for two hours. Then, if a company needs an extra body to serve food, mop a floor, saw 2x4s, or hold a sign in the rain they call the temp office.
Should your qualifications match the need, you get the contract. The one-day contract that earns you between $40-$60, depending on your pay rate and hours worked.
Don’t like that option? Go fuck yourself. You can sit back down with the rest of the 30 guys looking for some cash that day. Most of the guys I waited with last time this misfortune befell me were murderers and rapists on account of us being in the shitty part of town. I say that as a reminders not to talk to too many stranger dudes unless you want to know about some evil things they’ve done.
This is about to be my life starting today when I go and fill out an application. I’m going to need a level 10 stress relief every day until I save enough. And I will save enough. I have to move. I need my own space. I have to be out there living my life my way and I can’t do it here.
The worst I can say is no, which is highly unlikely. Take a risk.
the guy on the right doing that shimmy though
He don’t know who Tommy is? 😳
He prolly can’t even tell u what show this is.
^^^ YO FUCK YA SOFT GHETTO.
I want the soft ghetto to fucking disappear with their annoying ass…
Softghetto is the worst blog on Tumblr.
Children’s stick insect, Tropidoderus childrenii, is a species of stick insect found in Australia. Children’s stick insect being about 110 millimetres (4.3 in) long can be quite gracious but when they reproduce they can reach plague proportions and can wipe out eucalyptus forests.
At least I only woke up at 11 am. Factor that in with the fact that I’ve slept away most of the day and you could scarcely say I’ve been dying on the inside at all.
My friend and I got drunk and talked about being black in America.
