Remember those days where one person would work one job and be able to support the whole family? Well those days existed. I’m pretty sure of it. I saw it on Happy Days. These days however, it seems like people these days can’t seem to get by on one job anymore. Let’s see, for example, I have 2 jobs, and an e-commerce site, and I’m still just getting by. I can see a day where I’ll finally buy things like a …car…a condo, but they still seem years away.
Now, I’ve read that the gap between the rich and not so rich seems to be getting wider, and yet when the rich need money, they get a bailout. Where’s my bailout? I don’t need several billion for my bailout. I don’t even need several million for mine. I just need a 5-figure sum, and I’d be fine. Then I’d go and get myself out of debt all over again, but at least it would be a mortgage and a car loan.
Originally, I thought that my situation was just because of my own bad choices, but recently I keep hearing from other people that’s they’re thinking the same thing. Getting a second job, something on the weekends or a few evenings a week. I guess this is why both parents work these days in families. It costs more to live, and the expense of living a decent lifestyle keeps going higher and higher.
I don’t own a car, but I’d like to own one. I’m not looking for an expensive SUV, but even the less expensive stuff seems expensive these days. I’m starting to think a used car is my only option.
I’ve read that this generation is suppose to be the first generation that isn’t suppose to do as well as the previous generation…but really, this really sucks. At least I’m finally in a position where I’m starting to regain lost ground, but it’s still going to take years before I even get to consider a mortgage or a bank loan.
