Ain’t this the fucking truth! I’m lower middle class, and yes, it’s a bitch, but I do have help when I need it, even use credit cards and had taken out a loan. I’ve had to rob Peter to pay Paul and then pray. Funny, I was just thinking of my teen years, kicked out when I was 18, on a $90 a week job. In my dad’s later life, and when I was married, he told me he had wished he had done things differently. Yeah, well, it was a little late for that, but thanks. Even Keith’s ex thought I’d be rolling in the dough when he died. PLEASE. That money went to raising my kids and keeping a roof over our heads. Even when I started working a year after he died, I didn’t have $6000 a month to play with like she did when she was married to Keith. I make more money now than I ever have in my life, and it STILL isn’t enough between rent and bills, but it’s the way my life has been, ALL my life, and yet, I smile and I’m thankful because it could be worse. ♥️
From Jonathan Owens:
I WAS ARGUING WITH MY COUSINS THE OTHER DAY. THEY GOT UPSET BECAUSE I TOLD THEM I NEVER IN MY LIFE WANT TO BE MIDDLE CLASS EVER AGAIN.
I WANT TO BE EITHER LOW INCOME OR RICH!!!!
MY COUSIN GOT UPSET AND ASKED”WHAT TYPE OF IGNORANT SHIT IS THAT??? HOW YOU RATHER BE LOW INCOME THAN MIDDLE CLASS???”
I REPLIED “SEE, I HAVE BEEN ALL 3 AND I HAVE COME TO REALIZE THAT BEING MIDDLE CLASS IS THE HARDEST.
- WHEN YOU ARE LOW INCOME YOU CAN GET FOODSTAMPS, MEDICAID, WIC, HEAD START, EARLY HEAD START, HOUSING ASSISTANCE AND SO MUCH MORE.
- WHEN YOU ARE RICH YOU DON’T NEED FOODSTAMPS BECAUSE YOU HAVE MONEY TO BUY WHATEVER YOU CRAVE, YOU CAN AFFORD HEALTH INSURANCE OR JUST GO TO THE DOCTOR AND PAY OUT OF POCKET. YOUR CHILDREN CAN GO TO THE BEST CHILDCARE CENTERS AND SCHOOLS BECAUSE YOU CAN AFFORD IT. YOU CAN LIVE COMFORTABLY AND NOT STRESS ABOUT PAYING THE BILLS.
- WHEN YOU ARE MIDDLE CLASS YOU DON’T GET SHIT BUT STRUGGLE. YOU CAN’T GET FOODSTAMPS BECAUSE YOU MAKE TOO DAMN MUCH BUT YOU ARE CONSTANTLY CHOOSING BETWEEN FOOD, GAS, LIGHTS, AND RENT. YOU ARE ALWAYS ROBBING PETER TO PAY PAUL AND CAN’T EVER SEEM TO GET CAUGHT UP. YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO GET SICK BECAUSE ALTHOUGH YOU HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE THROUGH YOUR EMPLOYER YOU HAVE TO PAY A DAMN DEDUCTIBLE JUST TO BE SEEN BUT YOU CAN’T AFFORD IT BECAUSE YOU NEED FOOD. SO NOW YOU HOME ON GOOGLE TRYING TO SELF DIAGNOSIS YOURSELF AND ALTHOUGH YOU FEEL LIKE SHIT YOU STILL HAVE TO GET UP AND GO TO WORK BECAUSE IF YOU LOSE YOUR JOB SECTION 8 NOR HUD AIN’T GONE PAY THE RENT AND YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE HOMELESS. YOU DON’T EVEN WANT TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL EVEN WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE ABOUT TO DIE BECAUSE YOU DON’T WANT THAT $3,000 HOSPITAL BILL ON YOUR CREDIT BUT YOU STILL CAN’T AFFORD TO PAY THE DOCTOR THAT $150 TO BE SEEN SO YOU SUCK IT UP AND GO TO THE HOSPITAL. YOU HAVE TO WORRY EVERY SINGLE DAY ABOUT WHO’S GOING TO WATCH YOUR KIDS BECAUSE AIN’T NO TELLING WHAT KIND OF MOOD GRANDMA OR BABY DADDY IN TODAY BUT YOU KNOW YOU GOTTA WORK CUZ THE RENT OR MORTGAGE DUE.
LIFE IS HARD AS SHIT BUT I SWEAR AFTER EXPERIENCING ALL 3 BEING MIDDLE CLASS AIN’T FOR ME. YOU HAVE TO PICK. EARN LESS MONEY OR EARN MORE MONEY!!!! IF NOT YOU GONE BE STUCK IN THE REAL STRUGGLE FOREVER.”
THEY ROLLED THEIR EYES LIKE I WAS STUPID BUT YA’LL LOW INCOME PEOPLE DOING 10 TIMES BETTER THAN MOST MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE I KNOW.
LIKE, HOW THE HELL YOU GET FOODSTAMPS AND YOUR CHILD STILL GETS FREE LUNCH BUT THE MIDDLE CLASS FAMILY CAN’T GET FOODSTAMPS AND THEY HAVE TO PAY $2.35 EVERYDAY FOR SCHOOL LUNCH???? THEY ALREADY STRUGGLING TO KEEP FOOD IN THEIR HOME. HELL THE ONES WITH FOODSTAMPS SHOULD HAVE TO PACK A LUNCH.
HOW COME THE LOW INCOME FAMILY GETS TO SEND THEIR CHILD TO DAYCARE FOR LESS THAN $25 A WEEK WHILE THE MOTHER DOESN’T EVEN WORK BUT THE MIDDLE CLASS MOTHER WORRIES ABOUT THE SAFETY OF HER CHILD ALL DAY WHILE SHE WORKS BECAUSE HER CHILD IS WITH WHATEVER FAMILY MEMBER WHO COULD AND WOULD WATCH HIM BECAUSE SHE CAN’T AFFORD THE $150 A WEEK CHILDCARE EXPENSE.
TO THOSE OF YOU ARE CURRENTLY LOW INCOME YA’LL BETTER CHERISH THAT SHIT AND BE WISE WITH IT.
TO THOSE WHO ARE RICH YA’LL BETTER SPEND THAT MONEY WISELY AND SAVE IT.
TO THOSE WHO ARE MIDDLE CLASS I’M PRAYING FOR YOU. I HOPE YOU ALL BECOME AND STAY RICH BECAUSE BEING MIDDLE CLASS IS HARD AS SHIT.
