Money is the root of all Evil
Did you know the economy is bad? If not, you’ve been living under a rock. It sucks, unemployment is high, blah blah blah. Now can we quit talking about it?
Almost every day, I hear someone complain about the current state of the economy and/or their own financial troubles. As a person who has been broker than broke, I understand what it is to have problems. I also understand that finding a solution isn’t as hard as people are making it out to be.
If I was fired today, I would most likely have a good cry-fest about it, and then I would go on the job hunt once again. Filing for unemployment is out of the question in my world. There are jobs everywhere!! The problem with most people is that they don’t want to get out there and pick up a crappy job to support themselves. Why should they if the government will send them a nice unemployment check?
The economy isn’t to blame for people being broke. People are to blame. Stop spending money on things you don’t need; movies, CDs, fast food, designer clothes. Shop for food at Walmart and eat at home every day. Go to Goodwill if you have to for clothing; they tend to have nice things if you have time to search. If you’re too good for Goodwill, hit the clearance rack at Marshalls or TJ Maxx, or any place where prices are low to begin with. Borrow new movies and CDs instead of buying, or hit up Half Price Books where certain CDs and movies are $2-$3 a piece. Manage your money better!
As far as not being able to find a job, I don’t buy that excuse for a second. I guarantee that I could find a job in a week, give or take, if I had to. I’ve done it before. Sure, it means possibly doing something you don’t want to do, but it’s a job. It looks better to your future employers if you are out there working rather than sitting at home collecting unemployment. Go work at McDonalds, be a cashier at Target, wait tables at Chili’s, do something!
I don’t blame the economy for high unemployment. I don’t blame Obama. I blame the lazy whiners who sit around waiting for someone to fix things, while not thinking to try to help themselves.
