Well, it came today.. Fitting because the government is my valentine, and because it loves me it sends me money.

Actually, I'm lying, I get money because the government wants me to go to school, so they are paying the bill.. Only one problem.. My total school cost this semester was $1700 (including books). The government gave me a check for $2400+... That is a $700 difference AND guess what?!

I get to keep the money. I decide what to do with it.. Crazy eh? The really bad part is that the money that they give me is not dependant on: good grades, attendance, or even how many classes I take. In my view this is government waste. (I could be wrong though)

I'll save the full rant for a different day.

It wouldn't be a waste if they gave it to me. >:-\

I say government handouts are always a waste because I never get them.

Why, I didn't even get the "economic stimulus!"

Don't rant. Take. Especially when the government is giving. It's the only rational thing to do at a time like this.

Sigh.. Well, the fact that I'm getting the money doesn't bother me that much, because it's being used to pay for both my and my sister's school..

What does bother me is the fact that I'm not the only one receiving these checks, and the amount of money that is being given away.

Yeah, I'll take it, but I know I'll be paying it back sooner or later.

Mr. Worm said...

Aww, isn't he a nice brother, Sally :-)

Nice is not synonymous with crazy. And no, Steve, it's not being used for my school.
