ShrimpBrime: I had 3 jobs for about 2.5 years straight. Made over 75K in wages. 7 days a week. Delivered Pizzas just to cover the groceries between a full time and part time job. I'll never do it again.

george: rough. One of my motto for me is that the younger ones do not have to struggle in the same way as my parents, they had their 12hr/6day/wk tasks to do and so on, and it was not farming.

ShrimpBrime: But, my time is coming to not worry so much about money though, my wifes father passed away and left a considerable sum for us. We'll still have to work cause health insurance is expensive AF.

ShrimpBrime: But I think almost ALL middle class people go through tough times, be it years or not. I've been the sole provider for a family of 5 for about 20 years. It hasn't been easy.

ShrimpBrime: My grand parents where raised through the great depression. There was a sign over the toilet. "If it's yellow, be mellow. If it's brown, flush it down" a little note to conserve water.

george: Thanks Shrimp. The pay matter is of course a very important matter to keep the household running. Thinking of the hardships my parents and elders had to do to go on.

ShrimpBrime: I did quit my job. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Things where not as I expected last year when I got the job. But no worries, I won't miss a single day of work. Always line one up first before quitting

Vinster: we don't all have to believe in the same things. we don't all have to agree on the same things. but to have respect for your fellow person and have a beer to debate or after a debate... instead of hate, maybe we'd all just learn a little more...

Vinster: for religion, my only issue with some religions is, if they call out theirs as the right one and everyone else is going to hell... I have no patience for that. If your religion tells you to hate someone for their race, creed, beliefs, etc... I say GTFO
