Poor and NOT on PA

 I'm not a "have."  I am not on PA.  I don't GET to decide what people on PA get to spend their money on.  But I am fucking tired of the "I deserve this and I deserve that" attitude I read around here.  I drive a 96 vehicle.  I moved to a small dinky town b/c my hometown became too expensive(insurance) after Katrina/levees, etc.  I do without vacations.  I don't get my hair dyed or nails done.  Ever.  I "splurge" on a getting a haricut.

I am so tired of whiny assed people who think they deserve things b/c at one time they could afford to buy or charge expensive "stuff".  Work hard, save up, and maybe you too can be poor and happy like me without being on public assistance.

And many of us are tired of the assumption that just because we are on PA means that we don't work our asses off.

So, we're even. And you can get bent.

(for the record, I don't get my nails or hair done, or drive a fancy car, or have nice clothes even (haven't bought clothes in three years, in fact)....but your post comes off judgmental and bitchy)

 Awww.  So sorry I come off as bitchy.  Lots of people on here come off as deserving.  If that aint you, I wasn't talking to you.

Congrats to you. Glad to know you're so wonderful.

 Huge difference between wonderful and happy.  But I am a little bit of both!
