Lack of other practical options for housing I imagine. You can get stuck in a really bad situation if you don't have anywhere else to go.

who many would consider brave.
With a head like a block
he went out for a sock,
his ass I won't bother to save.

This. The cheapest rent I've seen posted is around $1300 and up, way outside my budget even it if it did include utilities. Sure, there might be cheaper places, but I can't find them posted, probably don't include utilities, and they're probably not safe places to live.

I seriously do not understand how other people make similar to what I do and can afford to live they way they do.

Rent control. It doesn't cost them as much because they bought into it while it was still cheap.

If you need any more help, just follow the lead of this plucky young lady who paid down her sizable student loan in just three years thanks to a healthy helping of grit and determination!

Welp, they did push me into changing the service. Amazing how their stories change, by the way. Like, mid-sentence even.

On the plus side, I did get pretty decent 2-year deal out of it, including faster internet, 1-year DVR, about 4x as many channels, a couple of free movie channels, below-package price, and reduced installation fee, and it's all in *my* name.


Unrelated(mostly), but the speaker of my phone gets really hot after while on a call.

It can only be called a decent deal when they change out the malfunctioning Momsboyfriend unit.

I have no idea where anything is. I have no idea what anything does. This is not merely a madhouse designed by a madman, but a madhouse designed by many madmen, each with an intense hatred for the previous madman's unique flavour of madness.

I literally hum Gruntilda's Lair at my cubicle once a week, and even add different inflections for different zones.

Whenever I listen to a youtube video that has some N64 music playing in the background, my instant first impression is always "What good taste in music". My demographic is being pandered to very hard.

Dear God. I can't believe someone wrote that with a straight face. I almost thought it was a joke, but no... it's real.

She just pulled herself up by her bootstraps yes she did, no help from anyone except for every single thing she has being given or arranged by her family connections.

Personally id just like an appartment or something with running water and electricity and the option to buy internet or cable tv.
