I’ve got an email that contained a quote describing the way we live:
“Normal Life is getting dressed in clothes that you buy on credit for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to a job that you need so badly so you can pay for the clothes, car and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it. ”
I do not know who’s the author of this quote, but it’s well said.
The person who sent me the quote added a short comment: “Each working day shortens your life by 8 hours “. This is yet another correct assessment of the lifestyle that many of us have in the USA. I’d change 8 to 12 though since many of us leave for work at 7AM and come back home at 7PM or later.
During the last couple of months I’ve heard from more that one programmer a statement like this, “I’d like to relocate to another country…let it pays less, but I’m tired here…I can sell my house here and it’ll get me going for a while… “. I guess, they started to fell like the burning candles that will be replaced by fresh ones soon.
Pretty sad posting for Saturday… Let’s add some postive and happy ending. How about this one:
The life is not easy in the USA, but I’ll stick around…because it’s even more difficult anywhere else.
