@jquick Anecdotal evidence is not data. One in five fast food workers are living in poverty. How easy is it to move to Texas, or Alaska, or North Dakota when you can barely afford to buy groceries?
I went as Sexy John Boehner for real.
This. Is. The. Best. I love Mike Dang office adventures.
By the way, just got news I have a long-term temp job lined up to start tomorrow. This will at least buy us some financial stability while I'm in the process of looking for The Job. hustling in the city tag = accurate

@UrbanGarlic Also legal aid doesn't apply in civil cases (say your landlord is trying to evict you or a CC company suing for unpaid balance) nor in how cops and prosecutors treat you when you are caught doing something bad.

fantasy to satisfy ppl who think women aren't allowed to fantasize about clothes and free money: fantasy: i work 60-hr weeks and take on lots of tasks that are far beyond my scope of work, so that other people can leave work early and i work late. i dont get paid that much. i never see my partner or friends or family. i jhardly have fun at all. the happiest part of my day is when i get home at 11 pm after a long dark solo ride on the subway, shove a luna bar into my mouth and sleep till 430 am when i wake uyp to do it all again. 5 years later of this daily routine, i get a small promotion, making it so no more than 3 people work directly under me. i get a $4000 dollar raise.
