Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.
One of my college roommates drove busses for one of the local transit authorities (tour busses, not commuter busses) - so when tourist season was over, she didn’t make a lot of money.
So, one night each month, she’d go dance at the now-defunct Razzmatazz, and come back with MORE MONEY from that ONE NIGHT than her entire monthly salary from the bus company.
She used it to pay rent and bills, buy food, AND support her acting career (she’d take a quarter off and go to Ashland and work for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival).
Shame strippers? I think that’s envy. “Man, you’re gorgeous - and people will pay you for BEING GORGEOUS. But not me. Wah.”
