Economically speaking, our situation just seems to get a bit tighter and tighter with each passing year.
All the promises from our elected officials continue to go unfulfilled.
Meanwhile, our paycheck remains stagnant and prices continue to rise. But comparatively, the people I was with and I are in much better shape than a lot of people. Plenty of friends are working side jobs simply to make ends meet. Then there are those that had nice Heating & Air Conditioning controlled offices but were punted as they hit their fifties. Most of those folks still have kids to give for. I have a side hustle and every bit of that cash goes into the household budget. It makes myself and others crazy to feel I count myself fortunate when I work a 50 hour salary job and a 20 hour side job just to survive. This just can’t last. There will not be a middle class at all in just a easily short time. Both of us go without so much just compared to a little more than a decade ago. No way either our wifey or I can get a motorcar replace and the people I was with and I both need a single desperately. However, I simply will not suffer uncomfortable temperatures inside our own house. While the people I was with and I watch the Heating & Air Conditioning temperature control easily carefully, I won’t kneel around and sweat while I am eating while I was in the summer. The day that I can’t come lake house and get some Heating & Air Conditioning comfort before I go to our side job is the day that I may just give up. I program the temperature control so the people I was with and I aren’t overcooling an empty house. But, that is about as far as I am willing to go.
