This world is full of people who need to, in my opinon, learn what life is all about. There are alot of people out there who will take you for everything you have. There's also people out there who feel like everybody owes them. It drives me up one wall and down the other when my dh works 40 hours a week busting his but at his job the minute he gets there until the minute he leaves. It isn't the greatest job because it's hard work that pays next to nothing.
We are scrapping the bottom of the barrel just to keep ourselves where we are. Dh was out of work for 4 months due to an injury that he had to have surgery on. While he was out of work he got behind by 2 months on his child support because they usually take it directly out of his paycheck. Well not having a job they stopped the payments. Well he's been back to work now for a little over a month. Recently they started taking child support out of check weekly. After child support and taxes we are left with less than $200 for a family of 4. We got a letter in the mail the other day that anyday we were going to receive our stimulus check for around $1200. Dh and I were happy because we could catch up on some bills around here. Nope not the case. We received a letter in the mail that it had been sent to my dh's ex for child support. Gas and food prices are rising and the goverment just keeps bleeding us of our hard earned money.
It makes me sick to my stomach to think that there are people sitting at home not work making more money then my dh who works 40 hours a week. People like my sister who doesn't work and hasn't work for the past two years since her divorce to her ex husband of 9 months. She lives with my mom, doesn't work and doesn't take care of her three kids. She sits around all day and collects over $1200 a month in child support, $300 in disablity payments for her son who has autism and gets $400 in food stamps. All of dh's hard earned money right now is going to his ex for child support, child care cost and schooling. We are barely seeing any money right now. We have to small boys to support and we are having a hard time making it on $600 a month.
