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.
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)
