Is this supposed to be a good thing? Isn't it sad that they are better off than so many people, yet they still feel such hopelessness, such frustration with their situation? Or maybe they could just be a bunch of pussies, but I don't think so.
I wouldn't say hopelessness, but it's definitely frustrating, especially since I'm not a pussy about stuff like shitty jobs and public transportation. As a matter of fact, I worked in the back of a shitty pizzeria for more than a year until they finally shut down due to lack of business, leading to my current situation.
The only point I was trying to make is that sometimes the circumstances are larger than a person's means. If I was in Orlando or Jacksonville, this would be a non-issue. I'm living in a retirement city, however, and it makes moving up and out extremely difficult, and most definitely frustrating.
I know the same can be said for many others.
