You know, reading those clips as I was typing them, it dawned on me that had anyone made the glib remark to me as he made in the first one -about working three jobs to support myself and my kids -back when I was almost always working two jobs, it would have been all I could do then to keep from hauling of and decking that person. And then to tell them if it's so great, why don't you try it - especially at these low-level wages!
Just my opinion there, folks.
