No public transport there either?

But one way or another, you can't rely on someone else to take you in order to get to work. What if they fell ill or wrecked their own car...

You have control over your own car to the greatest extent though - but not over someone else's goodwill.

How far is your workplace?

Maybe you could find some money to get a bicycle or something to get you there. Even if you have to get a loan from somebody or something. If you want to be mobile, upwardly or otherwise, you have to take some risks.

Bikes are so awesome and underrated, especially in the United States.

There are so many reasons to ride a bike that outweigh driving a car if you live in a city.

Edit: So many reasons including that my Crown Vic gets 13 miles to the gallon, city. Fuck that shit, my dude.

Even as an adult if you ended up messed up in some ways it is your parents fault to a level to be honest. I mean they only take the credit when the kid is doctor and a lawyer but strangely it never works in reverse.

I am not into philosophical debates so I won't stress it more. I am in a pickle myself, but I know sometimes even nice words are way better than nothing.

you can take an uber/lyft this time but ultimately you’ll need your own vehicle of some sort

motorcycles can be had cheap, but they come with their own issues. you can ride when it’s raining but you’ll get muddy. they are also generally less reliable than cars but they’re also much easier to repair.

and they’re fun to ride

wait, the job is in the bag but the folks prefer you contribute nothing to the household than help you get there to complete paperwork?

have you considered just offing them for the insurance money


but seriously do you need to get there just once or until the first paycheck? how many miles is it, will a bike actually work and how much they cost near you?


can probably ponycrowd fund it, I'll throw in for our fuhrer

Most of the time if there is no alternate route (such as a bridge) there will be a provision in place to allow bicycling. You may need a permit, but if you call your local DOT and explain your situation they will probably be able help.

>>42047788
This
A 49cc scooter wouldnt require a motorcycle licence in FL, so that might be something to think about. Plus, as it was pointed out, super fun. Yes, the rain kinda sucks but in the right gear, I find even the rain can be fun. It will give you a sense of freedom and mobility anyway. FLA is 4 season riding too, so you can also make me jealous haha.
Another pro is putting a sticker of scootaloo on it.

I know that dosnt help you for wed, but if you can find a way there and gather 3 pay stubs, im sure you can get a loan for a rooty tooty scooty. Kymco makes a pretty solid scooter for short money.

Yeah my dad use to say literally those words to me, sounded like a freaking nike advert.
I think they never got the memo that it takes work now, and it dosnt just fall out of thin air haha.

Whether you give up, or try and fail, the outcome will be the same.

If you try, your chance of success is 100% higher and if you fail at least you could learn something for next time. (Thats what i tell myself anyway haha)

Also this seems appropriate:

one thing that annoys is when you get spoiled people on facebook posting leftist bullshit saying "hurr durr raise da minimum wage i feel sooooo bad for da pooooor"

yet these same people are the ones who take vacations around the world almost every damn month

why is it the people with more money the ones who think they know whats best for others?

i remember one of these people saying "end capitalism let the socialist revolution begin!!!"

and im thinking to myself "just shut the fuck up already you're benefiting so much from the system you hate"

>Boomers typically don't understand how easy they had it

this so fucking much

pic related, boomers actually think this shit still happens

getting even the most basic job now is a more complicated process than it ever had been in the past

college is also massively more expensive and the irony is boomers will just be like "DERP GO TO COLLEGE SO YOU CAN GET A GOOD JOB!!" but don't realize that in these times college doesn't even fully guarantee a good job and either way the debt that lower-class people have to put themselves in is extremely risky. and on top of that you have to be able to afford to put yourself in debt because banks don't just give out loans to anybody, and it is not fucking possible for a lower-middle class family to pay for college without the help of grants/loans, basically. because if they could pay for it they wouldn't be lower-middle class.

you don't put yourself through college with a fucking summer job anymore

i just i dunno

i would expect people who actually lived through the struggle to know better than those who lived a luxury

>>42048311

>vacations around the world almost every damn month

Heh, im a bit guilty of that since i have a bunch of travel planned this summer. But i sleep in my car not a hotel.

I think people like that only post that stuff to vertue signal. It sounds really nice to say everyone should have everything their heart desires for free, but try getting the wealth away from them to "redistribute".

The bourgeoisie being the ones always pounding the "muh socialism" drum seems paradoxical to me.

>college doesn't even fully guarantee a good job

This.

One of my life silver linings was not being able to afford college. Im in about the same amount of debt as my friends but i have a house and they have a degree. One of them finally just got a job doing what he went to school for, but still works at the bar too. (Great excuse for a party though)

Thats not to say going to college is by any means a bad choice, but i feel like people think a degree is an "Admit one: Good job for life" ticket but its not.

At least not anymore.

once a year vacations are one thing but taking them more than that is another and have to wonder what you're doing to live that well

My plan is to take down a group of elites that took down my family, stripping us of three generations of wealth and life.

When i prevail i'm gonna tour the ponies of the globe on the fat of victory.

Until then i am less than a slave.
