that would neve even come close to supporting my lifestyle
Im a single dad with full custody of a teenager who is involved in many things
I love my job and i love the other things i do like coaching and volunteering with youth groups.
Now with that said if i had no kids I MIGHT be able to pull it off with a completely different lifestyle, one far more simplistic but POSSIBLY still fulfilling, I could still volunteer and coach and those job gives me access to exercise facilities i can use free of charge.
I could sell my house and property and get about 150000 so that would be nice back up money.
Id have to get a nice little apartment and that MIGHT make me happy to be able to focus that much time with community and youth group.
I would definitely miss my property though dont know if i could get over that.
sitting in the yard or on the porch or by the fountain or around a fire/tikki torches i would so miss.
anyway those i guess that would defeat the purpose of the question has i would be doing stuff and not really unemployed since id spend more time coaching and with youth groups and id probably become a volunteer fireman and 1st responded.
Sadly by many peoples opinions the above is what i would do if i hit the lottery but with a very nice piece of property.
Hell no . . . I make $40K/year on the dole . . . plus all my unreported income . . . I'm making out like a bandit. AND, my wife and I don't pay a dime for health care. SUCKERS . . . all you have to do is join the military . . . stay in long enough . . . go to war . . . get hurt . . . and then it's all about collecting baby. I kid . . . we should all be medically retired. 25K a year don't buy you much of a life. At least not where I live.Poll: If you were guaranteed a $25,000 income would you quit your job and stay unemployed?
Perhaps I should never say never.
Well, if I had awesome government housing, paid health and life insurance, food allowance, government vehicle, paid utilities, and my job was a bikini inspector, deciding which bikini's were, or were not, a bit too revealing on the government beach near the Navy base, in Hawaii, work 3 days a week with five weeks vacation and paid holidays.....
........ I might take that job for 25k.

I'm guaranteed that now....and I hate my job. If it wasn't military, and if I wasn't under a contract, I would have walked out of that place years ago. It's the worse job I've ever had. Love the Air Force....but my job is boring...and my office is basically kids run by kids (that don't know how to lead). I don't know. I think I'd rather be unemployed than work at that place. I'd rather take my chances at seeking a new job. :-/
