Scrolling through Facebook today I came across this post from a woman that used to work with me. Apparently she and her family are struggling to make ends meet and pay bills. This is what she said.
"N real need of some help trying to figure things out but cnt find a way I love my husband he works sooo hard but its just sooo hard wit a single income wen u have a family of four. I dnt no wat to do. Praying"
I will let the atrocious grammar and spelling slide since that's not what this car will be about.
I can totally relate. It's hard for a lot of people. The problem I see with her statement, though, is that she says she doesn't know what to do and that she's praying. WTF?! She gave herself the solution to her problem in the very words she typed. They're a family of four with only one income. Go to work. Flipping burgers part time will get you a few hundred bucks a month. Surely that will help.
Then to say she's praying. What the hell is that going to do? Not a damn thing. If someone offers help then it will be "god's hand" at work. If nothing happens then it will just be glossed over. Quit waiting for a divine hand out and fix your problem.
Now, before all of you bleeing hearts out there jump my shit about how maybe she can't work I'll stop you now. She had a great job working where I work. She left it for one of those "too good to be true" opportunities. She doesn't work anymore. She has all the ability and apparently none of the drive. She might have to do something that's not so glamorous but do something, goddammit!
