The last 1-2 days of the hiatus are always the hardest. You can’t find anything to take your mind off the fact that in X # of hours, you will (hopefully) see a shirtless Nick Miller finally sweep the woman he loves off her feet and make love to her.
And then you think of spooning, lip biting, neck kissing, caresses, cuddling, heavy breathing, nervous giggling, etc………..
I just read this article on Yahoo! Finance and it gave me a headache
When you see a title like “How We Got Out of $50,000 Worth of Debt,” you expect a remarkable story of someone struggling and beating odds.
But you keep reading and and it’s just ridiculous. This couple was making a combined $90,000 per year. They received an $8000 tax refund.
They say insulting things in the article like “I had to sell my ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR WATCH just to stay above water” and “we had to give up a TRIP TO PARIS.”
Look, being in debt sucks, and it’s awesome that they were able to escape it by living below their (VERY ADEQUATE) means. But this article is so offensive to poor and working people who live paycheck to paycheck and something like a vacation in Paris is something that doesn’t even happen in their dreams.
This isn’t even a #firstworldproblem this is just straight up being out of touch.
To be clear I’m not mad at this couple, it’s great they’re out of debt, I’m more mad at the writer of this article.
