F you "Financial Adviser"

I work 6 days a week, 9 hours a day. I pay rent, car loans, insurance, utilities, credit card loans, student loans. I don't buy anything frivolous, I haven't even bought a CD in months. And yet, I still have no money at all, I barely make it to pay day.

I work 6 days a week, 9 hours a day. I pay rent, car loans, insurance, utilities, credit card loans, student loans. I don't buy anything frivolous, I haven't even bought a CD in months. And yet, I still have no money at all, I barely make it to pay day. And it's not like I make minimum wage.

So I finally felt like I was at the end of my rope, so I called a "financial adviser." What was her advice?? "You should get a second job." Are you kidding me? I just told you I work 6 days a week.. I don't live in rural Nova Scotia, When and where can I fit in a second job?

Thanks so much for the financial advice.

Tired and screwed
