Since everyone has already starved their wallets, they then proceed to not spend anything until mid-February. As a result us retail workers lose all our hours and not only can we not recover from our own Christmas poverty but we often see the amount of money left in our bank account drop to double digits or even single digits, upon which arises a strong urge to drink--which costs money.
It's a vicious cycle and is often not escaped by the inexperienced and weak of heart.
Are you feeling the Christmas Poverty too?
I feel ya, girl! I got 50 dollars to last me 2 weeks after all the bills.
At least you're on salary.
Yeah, non-paid overtime. Woohoo!
Crap next year I'm saving three hundred dollars to get myself through the Christmas Povery without begging for help from the folks.
It's February 7 today, the Christmas Poverty is FINALLY starting to lift!
