i had a first date with someone last year where he told me that he was in the middle of bankruptcy proceedings.
there was no second date.
there's another man of my acquaintance here in town who told me one night at one of our group dinners about his ongoing financial troubles related to his divorce. he has 5 boarders in his house.
but he's been a driver with the local transit commission for 25+ years and i happen to know that they make more money than i do.
he also let it slip that the divorce took place over 20 years ago.
if someone is still in financial trouble 20 years after a divorce where no children were involved and he's making upwards of $60k a year, i'd have to wonder what's going on.
