Make A Snap Judgement. What's Your First Thought When Someone Says...**EDIT TO EXPLAIN WHY I ASK
That they are a single stay at home mom???
**Edit with explanation**
So technically I'm a single sahm. The other day I went to the school for a meeting for my daughter. She wants to start band next year, and I went to get her signed up. They had people come in from a music company that rent out instruments. I filled out the paperwork, and handed it to the guy. He asked for my place of employment because it was blank. I told him there wasn't one. He asked for her father's information. I said there isn't any. I told him he's deceased. He asked me how I intend to pay the payments. I responded "with a check."
Now I realized the guy needed to know how I was going to pay for the thing, but honestly he had a dick attitude about it all. I could have bought a thousand flutes, but I didn't want to purchase the thing in full just in case she loses interest after a month.
For the record, most of our money comes from survivors social security. I also make handmade items at home and sell them online. A couple of days a week I help care for an older lady, and she pays me cash. I'm not on welfare, and I don't take money from my family. Most of the time they borrow from me lol
I understand that people sometimes make snap judgments about me when I say I don't work, but honestly being a single mom, taking care of three children and this house, keeping up with my small at home business, and helping my brother take care of his two kids is work enough for me. I work my ass off.
