Paid But Still Broke

Being an adult means different things to different people. And there are loads of signs that you’re an adult. But one sure sign of adulthood is when you’re paid but still broke.

There always seems to come a point in most people’s lives when they decide they are tired of having the power shut off, and they decide to buckle down. The sad part of life begins where paying the bills on time becomes more important than a new outfit or a night out on the town.

It’s always a sad day when you make that decision, but somehow a time comes when you aren’t totally broke on your payday. You breathe a sigh of relief. The worst of becoming an adult is over. And you realize that you can spend a little extra money, and you can set aside some for the day a catastrophe occurs. And you think about that day you decided that it was time to become an adult.

  1. Many of us are forever broke or cash strapped but that doesn't mean we are poor which is something my daughters used to say when they were little and it really annoyed me
