Welcome to the Suck

It’s amazing how a good week can turn into a nightmare so quickly, where everyone that you care for is suddenly so depressed, and there seems little reason to carry on. Azael’s having issues with his work, who are a bunch of idiots, and now I here that Bunny is being moved from her Office Administration / Manager position to just handling the technicians so that the bosses wife can come and work there. Which means she’ll lose out on her commissions on recovered debtors – which equates to about ! R 2,000 a month. That’s pretty much a quarter of her salary knackered clean the fuck off her income.

Which puts pressure on our household to cut costs again, make sure that we are living within our incomes. There’s just so much crap happening on all different corners that it’s becoming impossible to live in this blasted country. Petrol is up to R 6.50 a litre, give or take, potatoes (fudging potatoes!) are up R 7.00 per 10kg in the last month, food prices are climbing, electricity is supposed to go up 18-20% soon and on, and on, and on.

And the government says inflation is 5-6%? Dream on boxes – I think it’s going to be higher than that. Don’t really know what to do, but going to have to cancel something, cut down costs on other things, and generally just live like a beggar. I don’t know how people earning R 10,000 per household manage to survive in the current economic environment! What about those earning R 6,000 per household?

Just fudging do not know what to do. This is fudging insane!

    Oh wait. Yes, I have. I’m sorry, but I just don’t have it in me right now to type it all out again. Besides, it was just ramblings anyway. You didn’t want to hear me go on and on about this, right?
