Sometimes i think about how my mom, who is chronically sick and on social security, couldn’t even afford to keep and live in the house she owned because the govt and city were charging her a shit ton like it was punishment for inheriting a house while poor

She’s only not homeless bc her niece’s husband bought the house from her and lets her live in it rent free.

@root @dankwraith @cuttlefish my husband pushed for a salaried job and got it because he had a ton of experience and we still struggle because he’s supporting me on my paltry retail income … he also makes a good chunk below what is standard for his role :/ He’s not web dev tho, he’s administrative.

Like I am lucky because the only reason I’m not living on the street is because he pays for everything he can when its possible and it’s still not enough

Capitalism sucks ass

Little "life" "hack" for gig grocery delivery services.

If you actually offer a fair tip (20% or more, the suggested amount is like a quarter of that) someone usually instantly picks your order up anyway and you don't have to pay $2 to the company for a "priority" delivery window.

I'm like yeah uhhh one thought please and my brain today is like sorry brain machine broke so i guess I'm free to do what i want today. i get to stare outside at nothing with my cat whilst thinking about nothing, finally.

#FediBlock @gargon@mastodon.social whole instance looks suspicious and toxic, better suspend all of mastodon.social just to be safe. actually, same guy appears to run mastodon.online, i'd suspend them both
