    Enough of struggling? Enough of putting up with bullshit that wasn't your fault? I'm feeling that way tonight. I'm 50 years old. I've got young children so I'm never going to retire. I'm flat broke because between the children, the cost of living in New York and our motherfucking government taking 40 cents out of every dollar I earn, I'm penniless. I earn low six figures and I can hardly buy lunch every day. I live in a country where the President is an asshole, where fucking ragheads threaten to kill me every day because I don't believe in their religion, where our political leaders care more about their own asses than about the people who elected them, where our media is obsessed with praise for slutty women with asses the size of Giants Stadium and men who decide they're really women, where the vast majority of people are empty-headed shmucks who are concerned with reality TV and stupid sitcoms. Where the highways are full of cops and crazy drivers. Where the company I work for is more interested in saving $$ than in sufficiently staffing the office to enable us to do the job they hired us to do. I'm just so fucking tired of everything and everyone. I'm tired of struggling and fighting life. Just tired.

    I think you need a nap and less Fox News. You'll feel better in the am, or just make sure Bubba uses some lube.

    With your whining it sounds like you have lots to be thankful for.


    Kids (hopefully healthy)
    I'm assuming a wife
    A great paying job


    Everyone has bills, taxes, and is sick of the grind. I loathe waking up early every single day (if I could sleep until 9 it'd be amazing). I don't have kids right now, so I can't relate to that. All jobs are understaffed, that's how they remain profitable to pay your salary. You worrying about all the other bullshit that everyone is worried about seems to stress you out. I don't have my finger on the pulse of pop culture because it sucks.

    I think you're missing the forest for the trees.

    I know I don't walk in your shoes and it's easier said than done, but keep you head up Peter. When you hit the bottom, the only way to go.... is up. Wish you all the luck going forward. :)

    Thank you for putting into words what I'm feeling these days. And i don't even have children to worry about. What a rotten world this culture of greed and depravity has formed.

    What is preventing you from moving somewhere else? Are you college educated?

    Move to the burbs to get more bang for your bucks and put up with the commute. There are people raising families on half of what you make, getting by. Be thankful for what you do have, not regretful for what you don't
