bet my followers never saw this coming

Won't pay us? Fine, we'll pay ourselves.

(This is a little long, sorry about that, but I’ve been waiting decades to tell this story.)

I grew up in a small town in the South. Summer jobs were hard to come by, unless you wanted to drive an hour away to the city. We had a few mechanics, some gas stations, a general store, and a church on every block. There were a lot of farms around that would hire high school kids, but summers in the South are hot and humid. The holy grail was an indoor job with air conditioning.

The summer before my senior year, I thought that my buddies and I– let’s call them Fred and Ben– had landed an awesome job at the general store. The owner, who I will call D*ckface, needed three people to unload the trucks and stock shelves in the morning. We had to report for work at 5 am, but it was only three days a week, and we were done by 10, meaning we had the rest of the day to lay around and fish.

Now, there were some red flags that I, being young, did not recognize at the time. The fact that D*ckface wrote IOU slips at the end of every week instead of checks was a huge one. He promised to pay us in full at the end of the month. We were kind of pissed that we wouldn’t have money to spend, but it was an easy job with good hours, so we kept working, looking forward to that sweet paycheck at the end of the month. With it being an under-the-table job, there wasn’t too much I could do.

I’m sorry if I forgot you! This is my first time and I have no idea how these things work. I would give you my blogroll but I have no idea how to make one awks. But thank you to each and every one of you because I sincerely love you all((’: Y'all should talk to me bc I don’t bite at all and I would love to get to know each of you! 

That aside, the EXO fandom has gone through a lot of stuff recently with all of these scandals and what not but I want to take this chance to just say to not lose sight of our boys! We need to support them with all we’ve got and yes, sadness and anger is an acceptable reaction, we just can’t take it out on them or the people they care about. Because after all, if we don’t support them, then who will? I know we’ve got what it takes to make EXO as strong as they were during their growl era! My followers – all of you guys – have been extremely supportive of them and I’m so proud to have the honor of being followed by you guys(’: Let’s love! <3
