"endentured"... like with fake teeth?
Looks like my new kitchen!
I don't get it?
There should be a second category for this overlap which refers to those who are working to install these symbols of status in others' homes. . .
I'm in real estate... and rotflmao
"you mean I have to pay for my status symbols?"
Ugh. You hit today's nail right on the head.except mine would be:circle 1: paying billscircle 2: having an apartmentcircle 3: keeping my job*groan*
Your handwriting looks familiar.... are you the person that wrote The Facts in the notebook on GhostWriter?
You don't have to work for those things; use your credit card!
There are days you are so scarily accurate it makes me want to quit my job and move into a cave.This is one of them.
laloca,'indentured' as in someone who agrees to work for free for another person for a specific amount of time in exchange for a service or the cost of something the 'servant' can't afford. After the time was up, the servant was a free person.Many European people paid off the huge cost of coming to the American colonies this way. Of course, the 'master' picked the jobs the servant did.Now, many Asians and others make the same deal for the cost of coming here. But that cost is usually several times what the 'master' actually pays (how much can 1 shipping container cost?!)and the sweatshop labor seems to never add up to what they 'owe'.So, for a dream kitchen, you have to work long and hard to pay off the credit charges for all the items listed.
You had to post this AFTER my remodel. If I had only known . . .
I like it, but the cost of a kitchen remodel's not exactly enough to quit the rat race either.
My boss showed me this. Funny, sad, true, etc.Been working Dave Ramsey's financial plan for about a year though, and have paid off about $10k of debt. He often quotes "the borrower is the slave to the lender." Two years 'til freedom for me..Get out from under it if you can..!
YES. I'll never understand the attraction to these things. Now all that money on books I can see!
In our case: cork floors (sustainable), 3-inch butcher block countertop (practical) and high-performance windows (efficient), all in a $35k house we own free and clear. It pays to live off the beaten path.http://www.weliveherenow.net
It's funny - I have all those things and read that like, I'm indentured as a housekeeper - keeping them clean. Sad. Funny. Funny/sad.
Oh my god. Kiki. I'm sorry to interpret that comment outside of the overall context of your life, but do you realise how much of a spoiled, whining trophy wife you sound right there? We all have to clean our kitchens. Aside from the larger windows, yours is arguably far easier to clean than most.So sad AND funny, I guess.
So much of what I want and what I don't want at the same time. I wasn't laughing in mirth but in ironic wryness.
I love how perspectives differ. I got that kiki was a house-cleaner by profession... cleaning other people's houses.i wonder which it is? :)
or...Things you wished your parents hadn't ripped out of the house in the 70s and replaced with plastic.
Yeah I read this one completely differently...Low-paid migrant builders came to mind; fitting kitchens far from home for a pitance.
