some wonderful cm on here says I feel entitled 

Is this entitled?

I started working at age 11-babysitting-in summer full time 5 am to 7 pm Monday through Saturday

Age 16-worked in a Strawberry field for hours 

Age 16-worked at fast food

Went to college full time and would work a few part time jobs at a time-which included-day care, babysitting individual families, working for the college students with disabilities and worked at a pizza shop-did these jobs for years-oh yeah and also worked in a group home

After receiving college diploma-worked at Children Services,worked for the Office of Developmental Disabilies, worked for a Non-Profit that worked with children,teens, and their families (the children had mental health issues or Autism spectrum)

also went to Graduate School and did a full internship, worked full time at Office of Developmenal Disabilities, and took care of my children

also worked for a Personal Care home

and currently work for Child Care-I took an extreme pay cut-but I have always worked-and due to my health conditions and I can no longer drive-but I am still working!!!!

I have only received 2 months of food stamps due to my severe health conditions-i was the bread winner and for one year I did not work-

I am still owing 30,000 in college loans

I also work as an In home Social Worker per diem

So since I was 11 and I am now 37-I have not worked one year that whole time, I have been on food stamps for 2 months that whole time, and I have paid taxes for every year that I can pay taxes

No I am not entitled-

Don't say that again-I have worked hard!!!!

Don't worry about it they're a lot of rich people cheating the system and getting away with it.
