    You are right of course. My income is tied to inflation and with no bills and everything paid off, I am hoping I did it right ... cr****

    You mean the fest I've been too poor to attend since 2009?

    As for the mental problems, I'm trying to work on it, but the clinic here is a bureaucratic nightmare where it takes a month to see anyone, and then that's usually just like a 30 minute counseling session every 3-4 weeks. And I want to talk to the therapist and get a better idea of what's going on with me before I just start bouncing around a bunch of different meds because last time I tried that, they triggered anxiety attacks.

    And good god, $25-$35/hr is just unfathomable to me. I make it occasionally on really good nights ($25) but then there's nights where I make next to nothing. And I feel grateful that I have a job that seems so well paying. When I was dispatching, I was getting paid minimum wage, $7.85/hr. In my mind, making a steady $15/hr seems like a "good job." My mom has been in the business for 30 years, and has worked for the same company for like 7 or 8 years, and she makes like $11/hr. When they give her a raise, it's usually $0.10/hr.

    Sorry, Patrick. Your story doesn't comport with Ron's hazy perception of people who aren't him, and therefore I find it very hard to believe.

    I'm just worried that I'll end one of those homeless people muttering to themselves and will begin to understand Ron's worldview.

    I think the level of empathy required for you to understand him from his own perspective would itself negate the chances of you succumbing to it.

    Geez, Patrick if you need a home, I am there for you like I would be with anyone here. Again IDK, am I lucky, yes, but you just have to deal with it. I have been poor, but that didn't drag me down. It's just another day and each day get's better. cr****

    You might be right. I don't want a pat on the back or anything like that but just today: I let my daughter have my car so she can do something really important, an ex is coming over and I am giving her $ to go see her mom who is dying so she can see her. Each day is an opportunity to give back and if you think I am crazy or whatever, that's your thoughts. Maybe I don't belong here in the end. That makes me sad, but peeps, we are all here together to figure this out, and sometimes, it's a bit disheartening that people here especially don't get it .... cr****

    I am all for helping the people I care about who are in need. That is completely different than trusting a complete stranger to mail you payment for passes he/she already has.

    I wasn't even ascribing your actions to the holes in your brain, Ron. I was merely passing that medical fact on to Vigo if he would like to emulate you.

    Yeah, starving Haitians, why do you all have to be such Debbie Downers all the time? Why don't you just pull yourself up from the muck with a smile and a can do attitude and stop dying in the streets already?

    Yeah, business itself is built on trusting complete strangers. And when you aren't the type to say "hey pay me right now dude I'm not a fat cat" people respond positively and appreciate doing business with you.

    That isn't to say that you should negotiate the sale of your house with someone who hasn't been pre approved for a lone and show your hand and stuff like that. Different situations require different levels of shrudeness.... But in general, I find giving people the benefit of the doubt when you can has its rewards
