Apparently, people like me are poor and on PA because i dont make sacrifices.

That is what this little old woman said to me while i was grocery shopping. 

i wanted to go off on her. but i didnt. 

because see, she doesnt realise that i am a single mother, because boys are broken these days aparently, and dont turn into men and they run away at the mention of 'pregnant' 


she doesnt realise that i am working full time, and sometimes over time, at mc donalds, for min wage, while i go to school so that i can get out of mc donalds. 

she doesnt realise that the only reason me and my daughter have a place to live, is because i have been blessed with a wonderful friend, whos grandfather owns (no mortgage)  a house that he was renting out, but was gracious enough to let me and my daughter stay in it, for no more than the taxes he owes on it each year. thats 100$ a month. 1200 a year for taxes. 

she doesnt realise that sometimes, when i am too proud to ask friends or family to help, i shower with hot water alone, so that i can afford to buy my daughter shampoo and lotion and powder and the other things that SHE needs. 

she doesnt realise that it is my BIRTHDAY in 2 days, and i am not having a party. im not going out. im not getting myself something special. because i know i cant afford it. 

she doesnt realize that it has been YEARS since i have gotten new shoes. new clothing, or new ANYTHING. nor have i gotten a hair cut. 


so yeah. 

i am poor and on food stamps and medicaid, because i dont make sacrifices. 

fuck you bitch. 


why are YOU poor and on food stamps? (facetious question)

Because I am disabled but I still chose to work. I'm between jobs right now. I'm willing to do any job and have a good work history. But I'm to honest about being disabled. I need to learn how to not let it slip in interviews. Lol

And people said the older you are the wiser you should be. Guess some people grow old disgracefully.

Well it is a nice favor on their part and your not a free loader if your paying something to stay... At least I don't think so.

You are working and you are trying to get off PA.What else can you do let your kids starve and live on the streets?

Do what you need to do to survive.People will always be judgemental,dissaproving and have an opinion
