28. great rant! should be an OP...

But then again, we already know this, don't we?

...the idea of putting these assholes into a poverty situation to clue them in is a great idea. But the catch is that they would KNOW they were okay and 'got out' in time...
The difference in REAL poverty is that there's no safety hatch, there's no OUT...it lasts a lifetime and alters your behavior over time. (makes us victims of LIFE...). If I can't pay my utilities one month, I'd better figure out the hustle and pay them something the next month, or get shut off. run out of food stamps? well I'd better be saving cans & bottles for some extra cash. And yea, there's plenty of days I have to put the kids on the bus an hour early because I can't afford to drive them... Are these "first world problems" ? I don't know.. I try not to complain too much. I personally say often that we have what we "need" because we have food in the pantry and warm beds to sleep in and we are safe from my ex... but yes, we could definitely do better.
