I've struggled for 17 years to read, write, speak, and walk again after losing those abilities in an accident, and now that I'm just beginning to get back on my feet I find out that I have MS and liver disease. My 24-year-old daughter died 14 months ago and my wife of 25 years has terminal cancer.

You were saying something about your bad fucking day?

Ok, so WHY are you in that situation? Are you a drug addict? Alcoholic? Gambling addiction?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 36012677


your INCOMPASSION is stunning. We are living in the greatest depression since 1939, but it is true, "charity" has grown cold. My husband and I were small millionaires and lost everything 3 years ago. We were selling copper out of our garage for food and utilities. We were were destroyed over night. We worked very hard and employed 50 people. We paid 50k in taxes a year. Today, we can't get food stamps, Medicaid, unemployment because we are 'business" owners. We are hardly that really.
I hold you in contempt for your inexcusable ignorance.
I hope God punishes you for your lack of charity. He will.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13261022



I have to say that I have been shocked at the lack of compassion for the OP. Even if someone thinks he isn't sincere, we still don't know and should never be guilty of making him feel worse about his situation. After all, these are hard times for many people. Thanks to the collaboration of the government and Wall Street, many people are in bankruptcy and/or foreclosure.

When I lived in Florida, I was laid off twice after 9/11/2001 and had to go on unemployment two different times because everyone was having an incredibly difficult time finding work. I finally found a job at Dillard's working in Cosmetics. (No, it wasn't my line of work, but I needed a job).

We NEVER, EVER know someone's true situation. Just look at the folks who had their retirement money in Enron, with many losing their entire retirement income. I've read about many senior citizens losing their retirement during this last Wall Street fiasco, and they are currently working as Walmart greeters. They expected to retire comfortably and now now they are almost broke.

Everyone says that America is the land of opportunity and that you can do ANYTHING you want. Well, life DOES NOT always work out that way. Remember, while we are trying to work and save and have a life, there are corporations and manufacturers who hire and fire at will. They will close companies and mishandle funds and put people's lives at risk financially. They will send jobs overseas. Let us not forget DETROIT......

Today, a person may have a job and tomorrow they may be UNEMPLOYED. It's the same way with owning a business. What may sell today may NOT sell tomorrow. Life is uncertain; therefore, just because someone is sitting in a hotel room eating hard-boiled eggs, that does NOT mean that they are a lazy, incompetent, uneducated whiner. In the past, I've met waiters in nice restaurants with a Masters degree....and they were waiting tables because they couldn't find work in their field.

So, can we call be a little more sympathetic to someone's situation? OP, I'll be praying for your situation.
 Quoting: Satellite-Feed 35968853


Very well said. I totally agree.

I too am shocked at the haters on here.

Judge not lest ye be judged. ...No one deliberately gets themselves into a situation where they have nowhere to live, no food, no job. No one.

It's always the result of external circumstances and the actions - or non actions - of others.

And yet, you are on the internet with a computer...

It sounds like you need to manage your money a bit better; use this time to shut down your computer - reaching out to strangers on a forum is not productive - and take action. For instance, I know that if you volunteer at a food bank, they will give you staples. Then, go to the nearest church (or whatever religious denomination to which you might belong) and ask to speak to the minister (leader). They usually have support groups to help those in need of work, affordable places to stay etc. Alternatively, reach out to other local community groups. There are so many organizations that will help with upgrading job skills etc. and in the meantime there are fast food places etc. that might hire.

The wrong thing to do is to mope and hope strangers on a forum will help your plight.

Good luck. hf

Re: i have nothing but 24 eggs, 3 potatoes, tap water to eat for the next four days, tell me your sad story
hi guys thanks for all the replies, sorry i have been absent, i did read through the thread and i thank everyone for the support and good advice. for those that are asking im in a small town in the central okanagan of british columbia, i was laid off from my job a few months ago and came here cause i heard there was farm jobs and i wanted to start a new life. so far it hasnt been working out well as the economy is terrible here and there are very few jobs. my next goal is to somehow get to alberta and rent a room and get a job out there cause there's suppose to be more work out there, also the reason i dont sell my laptop is that i need it to find jobs, and it's probably only worth 50 bucks (its cheap, old and almost dead). ill try to read through the thread and answer anymore questions that were asked. once again thank you. today is a new day

OP, have you entertained the idea of renting a camping lot?
Where I live, you can rent one weekly for $45, comes with free electric, shower area, port-a-potty, and there's not only water spouts to drink from, but a river where more water can be had and boiled.

Look up camping areas, they'll give you privacy.

Is there a Salvation Army anywhere near you ?
They sometimes have very reasonable rooms and other ways of helping people down on their luck, possibly some job leads.
Do some research and maybe give them a call.
