Andromeda: Sigh...CSB time, one of my Hungarian cousins moved to the UK where after a few years of working here and there she ended up getting involved with a washed-out British wannabe musician many years older, and they ran a little studio that went under right when the economy tanked. Around then she got pregnant too, and the kid is now going on 2 years old with no real work seen in that family since.I asked last time I saw her a few months ago, she said he does DJing on the weekends but that's too tiring for him to find a job during the rest of the week, so they just live off of benefits. The fact that you can just do this in the UK evidently amazes me.

digistil: WhoopAssWayne: The Liberal Utopia - government stealing from the working guy to pay off some tax-evading, freeloading doucebag. Put these motherf***ers in a government factory, 16 hours of hard labor a day, and we'll beat the Chinese at their own game.Funny thing is, the conservatives won't allow it because that'd be 'soshulizm.'
ChaosStar: FTFA:She continued: "I love to buy clothes on my credit cards and often have a blow-out at stores like Roberto Cavalli and the Armani Exchange."I will pay off my credit cards eventually. I use my pay to cover the minimum repayment."I also enjoy going to nightclubs and parties with my friends. It's important to go out and get dressed up. It's good for my self-esteem."The blonde insisted: "Every mother deserves a treat."Damn I want to punch her in the face.
