And thanks to this bullshit, I'm going to get fucked by no fault of my own. Your family's poor decisions are their own and I don't care or have a shred of sympathy for you or your mother. Too bad, so sad.

So you think because your family is suffering due to their own poor decision making, it is perfectly acceptable for those of us who haven't screwed up our own lives to suffer too. Spread the suffering around? Maybe you should sell you big fancy new truck and buy a more economical used vehicle. Speaking of poor decision making.

Work took me to the DC area where the rent is >$2000/mo everywhere. My old home was in CT where I owned a small condo in my small town.
My truck isnt new or fancy. And i just said its their fault actually her fault and i dont feel bad at all or complain. You missed the point. The point is that even though she put herself and obviously me as well in that position we survive. You will survive. The world is not going to come to an end.

Yeah its stupid that this is going to happen and it may not be your fault but you need to step up and do something about it instead of bitching and moaning and acting like you have it so bad.

Yes, fuck you. That's what I said and I meant it too. Would it make you happy if more of my paycheck was taken away and given to you to make up for your own irresponsibility? Here, how about I write you a check.

Lush condo? That's funny. Stop by for a visit anytime. See how lush it is.

Gotcha'.

If it was me that you thought was joking, I didn't feel like I was. I understand what it is going to do to people, and since our country employs more government workers then production workers, our economy is going to suffer greatly. However, the problem still lies in the fact that our government has an insane budget that they are not willing to make cuts to, and for that reason alone is why there are threats of a shut down.

I never said the world was going to end. I said exactly what the implications of this are. YOU said I and the rest of us evil govt white collar *******s deserve it. To which, rightfully, I said fuck you.

THANK YOU.

These goverment workers think theyre so high and mighty and know what its like to be on this side of things. Honestly you dont know till you spend some time there. No shit its our faults, but WE STILL KEEP GOING ON. Thats the point i was making, not trying to say youre to blame for this or anything, just that it isnt as bad as you think.

And to the other guy, youre lucky to be able to pay into a retirement fund and for medical/dental out of your pay. You think everyone gets paid enough to pay themselves like that? You may have less money now but when youre old you will be thankfull you had the money to invest into yourself

Never said you deserve it, said itll be a wakeup call for you and hopefully teach you not to take your paycheck for granted, which as i can see you already do.

We're not about to get paid less. We're about to not get paid at all because of political bullshit.

The other guy, who's pay and living apparently is less than ideal due to their own mistakes, is saying we deserve it. Not that we should be lucky to to have jobs at all. That we DESERVE to be fucked over like this.

No, the point you keep trying to make over and over is that you think we all deserve to be fucked over despite working our asses off every day to make up for you.

Really? Please explain how you can see I take my paycheck for granted. Tell us. If you're going to make such a statement out loud here, back it the fuck up. Tell us all right now. Go for it.

No you piece of shit explain how me or my family doesnt work our asses off???? YOU back that up.

Know how i know you take your paycheck for granted? Cause all your doing is complaining about how youre not going to be paid for a week. Your pay for one week probably makes what my mom makes and a whole fucking month. And shes a slouch because she CANT get a cushy job like you? Explain how you "working your ass off" every day makes up for me?

Im about to join the military buddy, idk what you think youre making up for? See you just assume because i dont have a family thats well off we are less than you. So fucking what you work for the goverment? All youre doing with your derogatory statements and assumptions is proving that you people that work for the govt think you are better. You know whats been happening WAY THE FUCK before your little one week off? People have been getting laid off and hours cut from their god damn RETAIL jobs and fast food jobs. My mom is 56 years old with me and her to support. She supposed to shit money out her vag to go back to school and then get a good job? Thats real feasible.

I dont even like my mom that much, but im speaking on behalf of the people who WOULD work their asses off and probably do your job 1000x better than you and do work their asses off at some low end shitty job who just cant get lucky enough to fall into your position.

Im a real slouch youre right.

There's got to be a way for you guys to calm down a bit, BOTH OF YOU Really. I understand how it is for most of you from both sides. My health took me down without warning, and now I can't work cause it might literally kill me. I went from being decent to out of work for over a year now. I haven't found nothing and what I did find that I can do might kill me. Now that sucks. Yeah you guys complain a little about your living expenses and how all of your money goes away before you get it, I understand that. But keep in mind that others are worse off or might be that have the same job as you guys do. Everyone is affected differently in many different ways.

And let me say not all government workers are like this, just this guy and a lot of others ive came into contact with. They type of people who say oh "just get a better job" like its that easy. Im contradicting myself applying statements to "all govt workers" just like he is saying all of us are slouches.

Everyone has their own opinion, i was being respectful about mine until you decided to cuss at me over it cause you have it soooooo bad. A whole week without a paycheck.

----------

Im just not going to come back to this thread. I dont know him and he doesnt know me.

But honestly, you could have it worse and so could I. My dad is helping me out and im staying with him but i feel bad for my mom whos talking about selling her house and having to build a shack in my dads back yard or an effeciancy in the garage.

My point was has is and always will be that youre not the only one who is loosing their job/not making enough money to support themselves..


oh wait, youre not loosing your job.

Oh, I'm a good old Rebel, now that's just what I am;
For this "Fair Land of Freedom" I do not give a damn!
I'm glad I fit against it, I only wish we'd won,
And I don't want no pardon for anything I done.

I hates the Constitution, this "Great Republic," too!
I hates the Freedman's Bureau and uniforms of blue!
I hates the nasty eagle with all its brags and fuss,
And the lying, thieving Yankees, I hates 'em wuss and wuss!

I hates the Yankee nation and everything they do,
I hates the Declaration of Independence, too!
I hates the "Glorious Union" -- 'tis dripping with our blood,
And I hates their striped banner, and I fit it all I could.

I followed old Marse Robert for four years, near about,
Got wounded in three places, and starved at Point Lookout.
I cotched the "roomatism" a'campin' in the snow,
But I killed a chance o' Yankees, and I'd like to kill some mo'!

Three hundred thousand Yankees is stiff in Southern dust!
We got three hundred thousand before they conquered us.
They died of Southern fever and Southern steel and shot,
But I wish we'd got three million instead of what we got.

I can't take up my musket and fight 'em now no more,
But I ain't a'gonna love 'em, now that's for sartain sure!
I do not want no pardon for what I was and am,
And I won't be reconstructed, and I do not care a damn!

WoW

This is a heated thread, but the point I was trying to make is that there will be 8 hundred thousand people not getting paid (or BACK PAY) and yes there are a lot of overpaid underworked government employees (high er ups) not the average middle class white color worker.

@AlxGry – don’t most people with jobs pay in to their retirement fund/ 401K, medical/dental insurance out of their pay. That’s how it works you get a job, than get a pay check then pay your bills and stuff….

I am very thankful to have a job this is true, but it wasn’t given to me for nothing.
I went to school for an education.
Worked in the civilian (non gov) world for experience.
Filled out an application / resume and waited for the call.

Now.
If I sat on my ass and didn’t get an education / job experience and work for my $$ I guess I wouldn’t have room to complain.

I think I can sum this thread up just by reading a few posts.

EVERYBODY FUCKING SUCKS.

No matter your job, your color, your salary, your family life. You all 100% completely suck balls. The government, the lobbyists, insurance agents, homeless people, ditch diggers, garbage workers, shit shovelers, they ALL suck.

Not if their job doesnt offer any benefits such as a 401k/301b...thats a benefit.

And not if their job doesnt afford a penny extra and in fact doesnt even cover the monthly expenses....youre lucky you somehow got to go to school not everyone can do that and its not always their fault but a majority of the time it is.

I don't think that cuts it. So basically, you can't back it up at all and have no evidence whatsoever that I take my paycheck or anything else for granted. Your evidence is that I complain about my paycheck being essentially stolen from me by some politicians. Yea, only a jerk would be annoyed by that.

I don't know. I haven't gotten into what either of us get paid and it's irrelevant really. I get a paycheck. Most of it goes to the cost of living. Your mom gets a paycheck. Most of it goes to the cost of living. Yet somehow I'm deserving of getting fucked.

You know what, I do take that all back completely. The comment was aimed at the retards who don't work at all, don't care to work at all. And leach off the rest of society. That's not you or your mother and I said it because I'm clearly pissed off and shouldn't have pointed it at you.

No I don't. Not at all. I worked in the private sector for 10 years before working for the government. I do not see anyone that works and tries as less or below me. Yes your mother tries and works hard. Super. But you saying that her financial mistakes make the rest of us getting fucked over somehow fair is totally wrong.

What I am seeing is you acting like I think I and my coworkers are above everyone else and therefore deserve to get fucked over like I'm about to be. Not only are we not above or below people who work hard to try to make a living, but we work just as hard as everyone else who works hard, if not harder. Us getting fucked is no different than some hard working private sector guy getting fucked.

The point isn't that we're government workers. The point is we're hard workers and we're getting fucked for it. And the only people not getting fucked are the fuckers that fucked it up to begin with. Fuck.
