Why is it that when I tell people I am a paralegal they think I make a huge salary? They also think it's some glamarous job that I go to work and do everyday from 8:30 to 5:00. They think that because I put on nice black pants and a dressy shirt everyday and work for lawyers it's a classy job. In someways I agree but in others it's just my job or as some would say my "career." I just think of it as a place I go to everyday from 8:30 to 5:00. My point being is that I don't make a huge salary every year. And the people that think I do is usually guys. Look, I may have a nice apartment and a nice 2007 car and nice clothes but I also have the finances that go along with those nice things. I have a rent payment, car payment, utilities, cable, credit card payments, and a huge amount of student loans that I pay every month for that so called glamarous job you think I have. I also have to buy groceries, tooth paste, shampoo, toilet paper, light bulbs -- stuff that you don't think about buying because your ass is still living at home with your Momma.
-- I really do have a point to this.
So this guy I've known for a short period of time asks me for some money the other day for a loan for something he needed. I told him flat out, I didn't have the money and I didn't get paid for another week. I wasn't even surprised he asked me. But, really what gives you the balls to ask some girl, who is not even your girlfriend for some money? And this just relates back to what I was saying above. What makes him think I have the money anyways? I am a single girl living on my own trying to make it work anyways. I am barely paying my bills and making it as it is and you wanna borrow some money from me? Please!
On another note, a few months ago, I go to dinner with some friends and I end up paying for dinner for a friend of mine with the assumption that next time I'll receive the same favor. Do you think that I've received dinner yet? What happened to the guy paying? Do these mothers not teach their sons any fucking manners anymore? First off, these mothers need to learn when to let their sons go. I moved out of my house when I was 18 years old. Why are these guys STILL living at home when they are 23-25 years old? Moms, kick your sons out! Let them go. Teach them to be independent. That's why they treat us girls like shit and we have to take care of them.
I'm just appauled lately. Why is it that every man I meet lately has a) no job b) no car c) lives at home or d) all the above. What makes you think that you can just go without a job? I have NEVER since I was 16 years old not had a job. It's never even been a thought in my mind to not have a job. What makes you think that you can just sit at home and do nothing? What gives you that God given right?
I did meet a man the other day that does have a job, does go to school and does have a nice car. I really hope that something comes of this because if you find a guy like that, they are definitely one in a million!
