Well, I had an entire post planned. I was going to outline the drop in steel prices and oil prices from last year to this year. I was going to show you how interrelated the two appear. I was going to show how it has personally impacted me and my family.
Screw that. I can’t seem to find the level of rationality needed to calmly discuss such things.
We’re on track to make $19,000 less this year than last. Nineteen GRAND! That’s a LOT of money to us.
Let me break it down a bit. Last year we made $52,000 combined. We didn’t break any records or anything, but we can definitely live on that. So, 52 – 19 = 33.
We’re on track to make $33,000 this year. A family of four. Need I say more? I’m just praying my business picks up or oil prices sky rocket.
Excuse me while I go cry over in the corner.
