    I'm tired of people complaining about loans that voluntarily took out. Suck it up. I paid over $100,000 of loans that my ex and current wife took out for school. I don't complain as they got a lot of knowledge from the process. I complain more about people who walked away from their homes and didn't suffer consequences of imputed income related tax bills

    wait I could have worked at the same place for 10 years?!?

    (Ok maybe and maybe not, but I suspect that type of job security is more common in government work.)

    10 years might seem like a sentence, but if one assumes they will be working anyway, job hopping is really no funner. It might seem like it is due to variety, but it's a roll of the dice, which sometimes end up losing more than is gained as there's a lot of bad out there, and the process itself sucks.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I think wallowing in victim culture obscures the real issue: Canine Privilege.

    Who sleeps and plays all day with no thought to the common people toiling to make their sumptuous lifestyle possible? We complain of the rich paying a mere 30-40% of their income for the common good, but what do dogs pay? Nothing!

    Whose grain-free salmon food just went up to 4 dollars a pound, while their servant/master tries to limit their own food prices to 1 dollar per pound?

    I think it's a bit species-ist to address this without also discussing the very real issue of Feline Privilege. At least dogs display some degree of gratitude.

    Oh hell yes, I often remark that the “dumb” bulldogs are smart enough to engineer a life where they sleep on the counch all day, get regular meals and treat, all with no work required. Well, we do ask that our white bulldog make us laugh a couple of times a week, but that isnt real work,for him because that is just his nature.
