Saw a homeless guy walking and thought to myself.." My god, I am literally 2 or 3 steps from ending up just like him."
It was pretty scary thought. If I lost my job I would be in trouble. Of course, I could go crash at a friends or beg my loser dad to say with him but who wants to do that!
I would have enough from my savings to last me maybe 2 months ( with credit cards which would destroy my credit score) but maybe less with the way the economy is now. What is worrisome is that the economy will get worse. Even if I applied for Section 8 housing I am sure they would have a waiting list of at least a year. Many of these government housing programs are getting cut these days because the states are bankrupt. You know it is bad when you hear about firefighters and cops being laid off around the country.
I always see homeless people and try to help out when I am able but today was the first time I really put myself deep in their shoes and thought to myself... any day that could be me.
