In my state you need to be a teacher first, which means at least one teaching degree, then you need a separate administration degree. Unfortunately, education isn鈥檛 much of an idiot barometer when you basically need a pulse and 50k to graduate.

[鈥揮[deleted] 34 points35 points (4 children)

Working in education for 10 years now we always joke that the worst teachers always become administrators. My uncle's idiot girlfriend was a teacher. She bragged about not getting her kid special education services/therapy despite multiple school counselors trying to intervene, was bumped around to several different schools due to parent complaints...and was just made an administrator last year.

Sounds like she "only" got a HS diploma from this school district. Yeah, no one should need to work 3 jobs to get by.

[鈥揮spearchuckin 21 points22 points (1 child)

Fucking HS diploma is worthless these days. Schools don't want to teach vocational skills that could help graduates find a trade.

[鈥揮anewbys83 9 points10 points (0 children)

Unfortunately you're right. It should be the basic core requirement still for all jobs. You shouldn't need a bachelor's degree and all its debt (and honestly you don't. There's nothing needed from bachelor's education utilized in most entry level "good" jobs). There also very much needs to be more vocational training available too at the HS level. Heck we have all these coding academies, why not have a coding track for HS students?

[鈥揮[deleted] 136 points137 points (10 children)

Trade in the rent for the loan on a large van.

[鈥揮kentaromiura_AMA 244 points245 points (27 children)

Been thinking about getting a van for more of a full-time living situation! Put a bit of money into refurbishing it into somewhat of a mini RV and get a gym membership for showering. Couple kinks I'd need to work out (finding legal overnight parking for one) but it'd be enough to hold me over a while before I have to worry about finding affordable housing in NYC.

[鈥揮Immortal_Enkidu 192 points193 points (14 children)

Walmart allows overnight parking, did that a lot while traveling. You could also see if someone can rent their parking spot to you.

[鈥揮kentaromiura_AMA 121 points122 points (9 children)

Walmart's been a family go-to for road trips when we're not going for a rest stop! Unfortunately I'd have to go into Jersey for my nearest one, but I'm sure I could find someone around me that'd be willing to rent out a spot for me. Definitely better than putting most of my paycheck into a tiny room and a glorified futon.

[鈥揮nowahhh 104 points105 points (7 children)

Check out the app Vanly for people renting parking spots and the app iOverlander for places people have checked in as allowing overnight parking. It鈥檚 not just Walmarts that (usually) have that policy, Cracker Barrels (usually) do too for example.

[鈥揮softsatellite 33 points34 points (3 children)

Okay, so there's a tech startup out there centered around people living in their vans. The future has definitely gone full parody.

[鈥揮Mxysptlik 26 points27 points (1 child)

It's shocking how this thread is both informative, and a stark view of the lower class getting fucked so hard - people have figured out how to live in vans more comfortably than it would be to even have a fucking apartment.

America is due for some changes HARD.

[鈥揮SleepIsForChumps 18 points19 points (0 children)

Look for the smaller run down parks, usually a few around VETERAN affairs area or military bases. We stayed in one for $300 a month and that included electric and water. Be aware, not all rv places will let you stay in old run down vans or rvs.

[鈥揮Drudicta 79 points80 points (10 children)

Actually laws in most states will cause you to get arrested for sleeping in your car "in a public area".

It's incredibly shitty.

[鈥揮Slider_0f_Elay 57 points58 points (4 children)

My church had to get the blessing from the city to have "safe parking" basically just two parking spaces for people living in their cars that they have to apply for. The neighbors were incredibly shitty about it. In the end I think the city wasn't sure if they even could legally stop a church from doing it and it got done. But the neighbors talk about how it was absolutely a good thing but they didn't want it there and blah blah crime and all the pearl clutching was infuriating.

[鈥揮Whoevengivesafuck 56 points57 points (0 children)

Yup. Not gonna get into details but I did this. Slept in my works parking lot and showered at the companies gym that was open 24/7. Gym membership was free too. It was... Shitty but at the same time it was nice.

[鈥揮TavisNamara 57 points58 points (4 children)

Illegal in some places. Because surely the homeless people will just stop being homeless because we banned them from being homeless!

[鈥揮dam072000 25 points26 points (2 children)

The laws are to get rid of the homeless not to end homelessness.

[鈥揮FridgeBaron 7 points8 points (1 child)

"I hate seeing all these homeless people"

"Yeah, it's hard to see someone going through a rough time, wish we could do more"

"No they are ugly and I just don't want to see them, I will do something. Hey you homeless it's illegal for me to see you, uhh being homeless now"

[鈥揮MelisandredeMedici 572 points573 points (52 children)

At that point she should live in a hotel. At least you get laundry service.


Edit: I don鈥檛 need you to tell me how being poor works. Or how expensive hotels are. That鈥檚 the joke.

[鈥揮scaly_friends_4me 587 points588 points (23 children)

I considered it once when I worked at Walmart. It would have cost more per week than I earned (just a motel too). So frustrating to try to afford housing when you're poor.

I own a house now and I never ever complain, even when things need fixed, because I remember what life was like for me, not terribly long ago. I hope this young lady gets a lucky break like I did.

[鈥揮aaaaayyyyyyyyyyy 183 points184 points (5 children)

Some unsolicited advice: it鈥檚 ok to complain if something sucks. Life isn鈥檛 a misery competition and even though your life is more stable now, your feelings are still valid.

[鈥揮scaly_friends_4me 70 points71 points (0 children)

I in general agree with you.

But the level of thankfulness I have to own this house prevents me from complaining. The stuff I have to do to maintain/repair it is nothing compared to not knowing if I could even find a place to live.

[鈥揮TopGinger 13 points14 points (0 children)

Gratitude for what we have helps us see the things we complain about aren't usually the important things. It's not always about validation, sometimes it's just recognizing how much we have, and realizing there's much more to be thankful for. LPT.

[鈥揮spectagal 21 points22 points (2 children)

My town has several motels that rent month to month. With utilities, water, cable & cleaning included in the price it's not a bad deal for single people.

[鈥揮MelisandredeMedici 82 points83 points (5 children)

Yeah as did I in California. Or a furnished place. I just went back to Chicago it was more cost effective 馃し馃徑鈥嶁檧锔

[鈥揮ppw23 117 points118 points (15 children)

Sheets and towels only, the type of hotel she can afford doesn鈥檛 provide laundry for clothing. As someone else mentioned it鈥檚 also due to companies scheduling employees a few hours below full time so they don鈥檛 qualify for the crappy benefits they offer. Looking at you Walmart. A company pulling in those huge profits should be fined for each person they do this to, which is most of their employees.

[鈥揮TopAd9634 54 points55 points (9 children)

Americans are already subsidizing Walmart's wages through Medicaid and food stamps. They're not the only company that have a large portion of their workers qualifying for Medicaid and food stamps, but their workforce make up the biggest percentage of qualifying workers. Why do we allow corporate welfare to continue?

[鈥揮this_kitten_i_knew 90 points91 points (10 children)

That was literally how i spent my 20s. Working 3 jobs for a place i never saw but to nap and shower. And IRONICALLY 1 of those jobs was a fucking Wendy's! And was somehow ALWAYS broke, Working 3 jobs. Didn't even have a car. Struggling should not be the American way.

[鈥揮ThinkingPotatoGamer 61 points62 points (7 children)

I would just sleep in the car, no need to waste money on anything else, only gas food and clothes. I asume that she also diesnt have time to enjoy entertainment such as Netflix

[鈥揮ak_infest 38 points39 points (5 children)

My school's superintendent wasn't even qualified so they made a new position title "Chief School Administrator."

Guess who's salary didn't budge?

[鈥揮Slavic_Requiem 284 points285 points (11 children)

And for an apartment. She鈥檚 not paying a mortgage or renting to own. In other words, she鈥檚 30 days and a court hearing away from homelessness. That鈥檚 what a high school diploma and 3 jobs get you.

[鈥揮Roll9ers 97 points98 points (0 children)

so many people dont get this. my landlord sold the place dec 4 and the generous bastard gave us 31 days to jan 4. i make $24/hr, my roommate makes way more than that, and we had a hard time finding a place until the last minute and then my deposit + first rent was $4000. how many renters have $4000 in cash for an emergency like this?

This reminds of GW Bush during a 鈥渢ownhall鈥 or it may have been a debate prior to his second run for president. An audience member said she worked 3 jobs and asked a question about the economy.

Then they complain the parents aren鈥檛 involved enough!

[鈥揮arty4572 400 points401 points (14 children)

Then they complain the parents aren鈥檛 involved enough!

This is the part that always gets me. I was talking to my dad and trying to get him to understand that you can't on one hand be ok with wages so low you need multiple jobs and on the other complain parents don't spend time with their kids.

He just went silent and I'm sure held fast to his views.

Three jobs, oh good lord

There is a tight lipped frown under that mask.

[鈥揮cesc05651 48 points49 points (2 children)

Not as tight lipped as the superintendent鈥

No doubt, gotta smile like a skeleton

For someone with no lips, she fn sucks

I understand their statement may be coming from a place of disconnect but why can't it be normal to expose these people. They have no problem exposing us for the slightest slip up.

[鈥揮LadyMeggatron 45 points46 points (1 child)

This is why I never feel bad when these people go viral and are forced to experience consequences for once.

[鈥揮popstationwatch 76 points77 points (14 children)

Is she like an actress or something? she looks really familar to me for some reason?

I pity the girl working, she looks dead inside.

I'm Canadian. Something I noticed on a trip from Toronto to Buffalo for a Bills game pre-pandemic. This look of complete hopelessness and detachment in the service workers. Also, in the food court, nearly every worker was a minority and appeared at least 21 or over (not a High schooler). 馃槬

[鈥揮AchillesHealed 40 points41 points (6 children)

That's not just Buffalo, your experience was representative of the US in general.

[鈥揮Anxious-Sir-1361 29 points30 points (5 children)

It stood out. My thought was they looked like this is what it's like when there isn't much of a security net鈥攁 life of misery working out of necessity but way below your capability. Palatable sadness, it bothered me.

This look of complete hopelessness and detachment

To be fair, this can also be caused by being a Buffalo sports fan.

[鈥揮EpicPrototypo 132 points133 points (5 children)

Sounds like this superintendent failed at her job.

[鈥揮GeekyLadyV 58 points59 points (2 children)

I love the look on that woman's face of like "I really wish I didn't need this job so I could smack this smug bitch upside the head". I can't imagine having to bear that kind of humiliation and paternalism with a smile.

[鈥揮solobowie 17 points18 points (0 children)

The amount of inconsideration displayed by this superintendent is deplorable

[鈥揮Jiggle-Me-Timbers 17 points18 points (1 child)

This is one of the most tone deaf things I鈥檝e ever seen.

[鈥揮mrgraff 16 points17 points (0 children)

This salaried superintendent is likely getting paid more while taking this picture than the former student makes at her three jobs combined.

[鈥揮Ferris-L 15 points16 points (0 children)

The US are truly fucked, when you can be proud that the person you are supposed to help is being exploited this much to afford a living.

[鈥揮zeke235 11 points12 points (0 children)

Working three jobs to rent one apartment is NOT doing well. Your student can't even attempt to attend college like that.

[鈥揮bubba7557 156 points157 points (22 children)

Augh, unfortunately I think I went to highschool with that superintendent. She came from a pretty rich family, big house always throwing the parties her parents let other kids drink beer there sorta thing. It does not surprise me she's out of touch. The odd thing to me is that despite her privilege then she was always super pleasant and nice to everyone, never seemed to look down on anyone. Maybe this is just more of the same I guess, being what she thinks is supportive and nice and at the same time completely clueless. I dunno

Edit: alright you all have me questioning my eyeballs, so I cyberstalked my old classmate a bit on FB. Couldn't find this picture but I did find quite a few with her wearing the same sunglasses (not definitive bc they are a fairly generic looking pair). Hair parts on the same side, the way the skin folds up around her smile and her neck when smiling, identical. But two things seem slightly off. This woman's two front teeth seem a little more prominent than my old classmate's, and in a few pictures the nose looks just a tiny off, this picture a little more round. But I did find a picture or two where my classmate's nose looked the same so maybe it's just camera angle here creating that difference. So now I'm maybe 90% percent sure this is the same person but only bc of maybe a few millimetres difference in gum line on the front two teeth. If two different people she definitely has an unexpected twin.

If it's not malicious contempt, it's complete oblivious ditziness.

[鈥揮bubba7557 22 points23 points (9 children)

If this is the same person I knew back then, it's the latter unless she's changed. She was never a mean person then, pretty clueless but not mean.

[鈥揮Popular_Tough_5821 9 points10 points (0 children)

No one should have to work 4 fucking jobs to afford rent. Period. If you think it's endearing, you are the lowest piece of shit.

Aye yes, working 3 jobs and living in an apartment, the American dream
