“‘Struggle’ is the key word, man. I’ve got a job, but even if you pay three or four bills, you’ve still got six more looking at you. How the hell are you gonna be happy doing that? We need to live, not survive. So now I’m trying to do what they call ‘affiliate programs’. I’m trying to be an Internet entrepreneur. But my wife thinks I’m full of shit—she’s about to kick me out of the house for this.”
“You still have your day job, right?”
“Of course. In fact, I work three jobs, man! I didn’t tell you the whole story: I work a night job, then I have the day job I just got off from, and then I have an earlier job that I have to get up for at three o’clock in the morning. I work 24/7. You caught me here because I got off early from my day job and I came down here to take a little walk, cool off my head and keep my spirits up. You don’t want to look down and out.
“So that’s where I am at, you see? And I’m still not making it. I’m trying to hustle, but I still ain’t going nowhere. But now I have to make this online thing work, or my wife will throw the kitchen sink at me. I’m living on a prayer. I know there’s money to be made on the Internet, but you can’t trust everybody, and it’s hard to find somebody who’s gonna train you. I already bought some software—now I need to set it up and learn how to use it.
“That’s what I’m trying to do right now. I’m tired of scraping by payment to payment. At some point you want to relax with your family. You don’t want to work 24/7. Your kids want this, want that, want to go to nice places. What are you gonna tell them? They’re little now, but you don’t want them to remember you as the dad with the sad, broken story who never gave them anything.”

tbh I don’t see the fuss about having waiters/waitresses not being happy and enthusiastic like I came here to eat I didn’t come here to be amused by employees as long as I’m getting my food and they’re not being blatantly rude I don’t see why y’all need to go on yelp to rank a restaurant 0/5 and have an outburst on why your waitress didn’t smile at you when she poured you water
this is pretty fucking important
