I love all of my followers and appreciate all of your comments. I try to read you all each day. However, at work, we have dinosaur computers that don't like when I open some of your blogs. Some make my 'puter crash. When I get home at night, I try to get caught up with as many of you as I can. Please understand sometimes that is nearly impossible, since all of you rock!
For my new followers I just don't want anyone to think I am the type of person to post and post and never comment. For my faithfuls, I appreciate your understanding and just know I try!
Yesterday at work my friend was telling me about her budget. Her and her husband sat down together and they figured out where a lot of their money was going. Food, mortgage, utilities.. you know, the usual. Then they started to realize that they were spending about the same money as they always have in all categories. So where was their money going... AH! "The Boy" (not mine.. theirs). $60 for a theme park, $140 for meds, $20 for movies.. you know.. typical 15 year old jobless child.
After much discussion and long hours of debate, they came to a decision. They sat down with him and broke the news.
"Son, we have discovered that you are sucking us dry. Understand we do love you, but due to budget cuts, we're going to have to let you go"
That's right! They "laid off" their only offspring.
Why didn't I think about doing that myself? I could have saved myself thousands.
If any of you still have jobless money sucking minions hanging around, I would suggest you do the same.
