View Full Version : When the funds are low.

So Im sitting here, rolling up a cigerette thinking about how long I've actually been out of work. Im going on a good five months which is like a record or something. Five months w/o an income, granted I have no bills because I know how to work it, I still think that's pretty good. You get really creative when you're broke. Gas is about the only thing that I get stuck on from time to time, but if someone needs a ride I can usually swing a few bucks for the trouble.

Do you kids ever go broke or with out a job? What are some of the things you do for cash? Are you down with the hustle?

I can play cards and usually come out ahead, or go to the bar and hit up a pool table or two, but with pool you lose sometimes, cards you can always fold. I think Im rambling, discuss or else let this thread fall to the depths of this site.

Well, I don't want your threads to fall into the abyss, so I'll help out.

When I run low on cash I usually call my folks and ask for funds. They usually help out. Sometimes when I'm desperate I'll play Texas Hold em' with my buddies cuz they suck at cards and they're easy to read, but my folks are mostly the main source.

I don't gamble often, I love money too much.

They get a lot more respect than you think nowadays. My friend went to Iraq, and he said there was a ton of women he served with there. We just see the clips on CBS where women get hazed by the guys, so we all think there's some prejudice going on.

well, 'the man' probaby doesn't really want women in the military so what we see in the media is like a way to discourage women frow signing up. Or not, either way I don't think its the orginization for me. I considerd nursing because it's easier to get money for, but I don't think I could do that job. Im not really mature enough or selfless. I have no idea at all what to do with my life. There's a lot of things I've done and more that I want to do and Im trying to consider the right place for me that can offer all the things I feel I need to have a happy life.

I have not spent a single day without work since i graduated high-school (back in 94).

However, my ex room mate was unemployed twice for 6 months at a time during the 2 and a half years we lived together. He pawned shit and begged off of his parents for the most part. he also ended up being $2300 in debt to me by the time i met Bree and moved out.

He paid me a whopping $400 back....


Thats okay.. We accidentally packed his silverstone wok, and he wont be getting it back :P

My friend's got a girlfriend
and he hates that bitch
He tells me every day
He says "man I really gotta lose my chic
In the worst kind of way"

She sits on her as
He works his hands to the bone
To give her money every payday
But she wants more dinero just to stay at home
Well my friend
You gotta say:

I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
now now Why don't you get a job
Say no way, say no way ya, no way
now now Why don't you get a job

I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
To keep her bill collectors at bay
I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
Cause that girl's got expensive taste

I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
now now Why don't you get a job
Say no way, say no way ya, no way
now now Why don't you get a job

Well I guess it isn't easy doing nothing at all oh yeah
But hey man free rides just don't come along
every day

Let me tell you about my other friend now

My friend's got a boyfriend man she hates that dick
She tells me every day
He wants more dinero just to stay at home
Well my friend
You gotta say:

I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
now now Why don't you get a job
Say no way, say no way ya, no way
now now Why don't you get a job
oh yeah
I won't give ya no money
I allways pay
now now Why don't you get a job
Say no way, say no way ya, no way
now now Why don't you get a
job!

do something you like to do... i'm only 16 and i have my own small business... computer repair... believe me, i pull in a helluva lot of cash... so why don't you do something like that? you like horror movies right; so why don't you apply at a newspaper or something? that way you can do what you want and get paid for it... it's a longshot but believe you me, it's a helluva lot better than not being sure if you can afford gas the next day :(
