So I have been looking forward to October 1, to when I can use the food stamps that I thought I had because I had a letter that had awarded me last month 17 dollars worth. Whoopee. But, I was facing October with 71. Maybe that was a typo. The first thing was someone called me at 7:30 in the morning. Then I received a letter 2 days after it was dated telling me I needed to have an interview that I thought that I had already had. So today I catch the bus and go to the grocery store to get some stuff that I was running out of and some food actually that I could eat. It was only about 45 dollars worth. Not much to live on… I go to pay for it with the food stamp credit card and it says insufficient funds. I was frustrated. I decided to go home. The bus home was not until almost an hour. So rather than wait with the gentleman who was waiting…I walked. Poor me. I came home, took off my shirt, lay down and took a nap. I am tired, feeling a little down.
I called my sponsor in AA. He cheers me up by saying, “Poor Baby” and Poor Billy,” knowing that all of this I brought on myself had I found a job earlier and not just stayed at home when I had unemployment. And here I am hungry, running out of everything…poor me…poor pitiful me…. So the next thing you will tell me is if I just follow your plan you will help me make all sorts of money. I say get stuffed. I am tired of everybody trying to use me for their own schemes, plans. Show me your money and then I will believe you. Bring me a bag of groceries and maybe I will listen to you.
