I heard another one last night... not at work, but at a board of directors meeting in the housing I live in...
I was kinda evesdropping on another couple talking, and heard something about a kitchen. So I asked him a question, thinking that maybe he needed some help moving something in his kitchen(his wife is diabled, so this is something that happens quite regularly) Anyways, he said no, that he was going to the soup kitchen to get some supper.
I find this quite scary, as he has 3 cars between him and his wife. The have a mini van, which they need because she is in a wheel chair, so it is equiot with the lift system for her and such. They have a "commuter" mustang(80's style 4 cly i think) and they just bought a 3/4 ton 4x4 truck.
All of the vehicles are older, but my question is why do they need to pay 3 sets of insurance every month. Are housing also only provides 1 patking spot, so he is renting another 2 spots... This seems to me to be quite a waste for someone who cannot afford to eat.
