Well as it is pay day for most of us out there today, I thought this topic was most relevant, and it got me thinking…
The time you have when you are working/not working?
The photo above is so true, like what time do you have when you are not working, do you actually have enough time to spend all your hard earned cash? The obvious answer is
YES NO you do not.
When you finish work, it is around 7, depending on where you live, it may take half an hour to an hour to get home, sometimes even longer, up to 3 hours. So be time you get home, your tired, you fell drained and you need a shower quick time to wash all the hard work from the day away.
You then just want to eat something and relax and then sleep again ready for the next day. Then you have a day off, which you would think you would have time the night before to stay up late watching movies or going out with your friends or doing whatever you want to do with your spare time, because of course you do not have work the next day, WRONG! Because you have been to work during the day, you are tired and end up falling asleep quite early, and the next day you sleep in quite late, and waste most of the day sleeping, because you are drained and tired, and that repeats on your next day off, if you have two days off a week, which you would if you work full time, and want to make money!
The money side of things
Now unless your earning above the minimum wage, or are superman or superwoman to have like 3-4 jobs, the money that you make from these jobs does not really go along way. I know on pay day it seems like it will, as it is just fresh sitting in your account, and hasn’t been touched and looks great, but as the day and weeks go by, you start to see the fading money, and the very little money you have left. So you then think to yourself ”where the hell did all my money go?”. The answer is, it went on travel, food, cigarettes(if you smoke) soft drinks, alcohol(if you drink), nights out, phone bills, rent, bills, clothing, etc.
Most of your money, does in fact go on work related things, so you are basically working to work, and nothing else. Most people do not save a penny, as they just cant and it is impossible, so they go from month to month, living on what they earned that particular month, and have nothing else left.
I mean I am starting to think, what the hell is the point of working. Obviously there is because I would have no money at all, and would have to rely on the tax payers money to fund whatever, but there just is not any point in working these ridiculous hours, in these ridiculous demanding jobs, and not even getting any time to your self or getting to spend your money on things that are not work related.
Honestly this life is sometimes quite annoying, and it seems slavery, and just plain boring. I mean you slave and slave and slave your butt off, for basically just a wage, that probably is very little than you actually deserve!
