^Your message isn't nearly as subtle if you read it through the app.
The thing for me is that it's a bit of a slap to the face to read about how to make it in NYC or other big cities you should make around $150,000 or that $250,000 doesn't really do that much. I mean, I consider myself poor, but even making less than what apparently would qualify me as needing assistance, I still have things that are basically luxuries. I still manage to treat myself. If I were making anywhere near $250,000, I damn sure wouldn't be struggling. All it says to me when someone complains about expenses when they're making that much is that they're used to a certain amount of luxuries that they're not willing to part with.
And my parents sure as hell never qualified for assistance with their measly combined income, and they tried!
I don't know, it's a lot like the threads about moving out of home, albeit less insensitive. It's when I feel that some people are just really out of touch. There are people who insist that everyone should move out no matter what on these boards and I've always felt it's because they're still living about three decades behind or they really don't know what it's like to be broke (as in, not just you, but your whole family).
While I'm ranting, I hate when kids from wealthy families talk about how they never got a cent from mom and dad, had to work, etc. as proof that having money didn't make them any different from normal kids. Spare me. End of the day, even if you had to work to buy yourself things, there's the freedom that comes from never having to worry about debt. So mom and dad may have expected you to buy your own clothes, but you always had a safety net that the average person never had.
I don't give a rat's behind that you are the owner as you reminded everyone 100 times. I don't work for you. You don't pay my bills. As a matter of fact I don't work for anyone here. I'm a volunteer. I have no problem leaving. I haven't eaten here in years anyway because the food is crap. You don't know jack about music. We are changing acts every hour. If you did know anything you would know that getting people on and off stage takes time and some musicians require more set up time than other. We try to keep them to a minumum but Lulls are going to happen. Your dumb butt is telling me I should be reading bios while they are setting up. Well I also run the PA so how in the hell am I supposed to do that? I have to make sure the sound is coming through, the levels are right and the singers have the effects they want. and I have to tweak while they play. I can't make the musicians play until the next group arrives because then they will be late for their next stop which is exactly what happended. The musicians for the last set were late arriving. The only reason I did tell you where to stick it is because I dont want to cause problems for other people. When this is over I will never set foot in your place again.
You've gone and ticked off a songwriter. Now I got to do a Taylor Swift and write a song about what a dumb piece of blank you are. And I'm going to play it all over town. Then I will record it. Sell millions of copies. Hear it played all over the radio. and then I will send you an autographed copy that says "thanks for giving me number one song you blank-hole"
I'm getting really annoyed with ppl trying to tell ME how things work at MY job. I keep trying to get the point across that things aren't the way they're imagining, but folks insist on trying to "school" me. If I'm okay with working holidays and not having a lunch break, why do you care?! My labour day was pretty fun honestly. I spent the whole day playing ganesh and watching movies, as opposed to standing in the hot sun at a parade while hoping I don't get shot or crushed by a stampede.
Ppl act like I'm too simple minded to decide whether or not something is innapopriate, or if I'm in a bad situation. I'm not a child. I made it through college basically in my own, missed getting honors by this >< much, so I got this. If I thought this job wasn't for me, I'd have left already.
Also, if you're gonna try to get someone to hook me up with a job, at least ASK me if it's one is be interested in. Don't tell me to send my resume here and there without telling me what job I'm applying for. No, working in the mailroom at a counseling center is NOT better than having actual hands experience in case management.
Also, you know Danny well that you only have a problem with the job because I found it myself. Ic you had hooked me up with it, you'd be telling me to stick with it and blah blah. It's okay to let me make my own decisions. Unless you want ANOTHER child who still acts like a 12 even though they're pushing 30. If you're not gonna push, at least LET us jump out of the nest. Keeping everyone dependent on you will NOT help you in the long run.
I won a very expensive guitar pickup as a door prize today a music workshop. And two licensed dealers both offered to install it for free. Also went to a very informative clinic I hope will help me grow as a musician. Now I'm on cloud nine.
I don't really understand, by those standards we are considered upper middle class (graduate and higher degrees, executive level professions blah blah blah) but we have a 6 figure student loan, six figure mortgage, car notes, college for our child and basic everyday living.
This makes me out of touch?? Nawl, definitely not. We aren't living paycheck to paycheck but we weren't living paycheck to paycheck when were 2 working college students with a baby, renting with no car.
I like hanging out but if one more of these drunkards walks up and plays with my hair it will be nothing nice. I don't even know some of these people and some coming back for seconds. I am going to be up late washing their germs out.
