What pisses me off Pa related

My husband I both work. We have 2 kids. We would like more but know we can't afford it. 

My hubby is about to lose about $600-800 a month. He is a federal employee. 

I called around to see if we could get our bills lowered for 6 months. I was told no that they only offer help to low income.


Why can't the working class ever get a break?

I'm sorry =( It's really not fair the way things are. You think they would reward you for trying. Big hugs.

I wonder that too either your full out poor and get everything handed to you or you're so damned rich it doesn't matter anyway. You get breaks either way. But someone like us in the middle we get shit on every single time.

My husband lost his overtime hours 5 years ago and it changed us forever. We worked real hard to get rid of all debt. The only bills we owe are monthly bills. Sometimes I admit i would like a nice big house, or a shiny new car.. But losing that overtime was a shock to us and woke us up to realize that we can get that stuff but we need to be smarter about it. Savings account and investments are way more important because they weather you threw storms like this one. Now that he has his hours back we save all that extra money we used to just throw out the window. I hope your experience can change you positively like it did us.

*disclaimer  I'm not lecturing just sharing my experience. :)
