As you know, my dear myloters, life...

.. is no more and no less than a big fat pile of sheet. You all know that and if there is somebody who didn't know or believe I am overreacting, well, he/she will know .. sooner or later. I wanna ask you people, about a certain category of people .. But first let me tell you why I come here in front of you with this venting / ranting avalanche: Starting long time a go, legally point of view, I am a homeless. Because I do not own a house nor rented in any legal way. During the time, while working here and there, I never had the main homeless problem, the "where I gonna sleep tonight?" - I always had at least one option. And most of the time, while working for a company or another, I was seen as good enough so companies supported - more or less - accommodation for me. Same is now. Just that last friday was one of those days makes you willing to push that 'nuclear missiles launch' button .. Friday evening, suddenly and with no warning, for about 4-5 hours, I was not only a legally homeless. I was a real homeless too. A big misunderstanding between owner of the company I work and the landlord of the small house where was - among others - also my place to live (1 room, kitchen, toilette, furnished, web connection etc.). So all collapsed and for several hours me and equally my boss we were stoned .. Happily one temporary solution emerged right on time before we all lose temper .. But the main issue I want o see a debate here is: do you agree life is such beetch that, in fact, some people - that we use to treat with contempt, homelesses mostly - would worth more care and attention?

You are far for being a real homeless. As long as you work for a company and have a regular income, you can rent an apartment at any time. Well it may not be a villa in Cotroceni but I'm sure you could rent a small apartment somewhere in a cheaper area of the town. The real problem comes when none of the family members have a revenue, and they live only with the children's allowance. There are cases like this, you know? What we see on TV are only the tip of the iceberg.

I work for 350 lei / month, which mean ~ 120 $/month .. nothing available to be rent bellow 150$ and there they ask 3 months advance). On the other hand, I just ranted against this unfair life and way we humans we use to jump into conclusions ... 'bout our fellow humans are just unlucky, sometime ...

I feel symppathy for you and hope your situation improves. I always remind myself 'there but for the grace of God, go I' I have never figured out why in life some are born into easier situations than others. I believe the homeless problem is real and needs way more attention than it is given. In the US I feel there is no excuse whatsoever for homelessness. There is enough wealth in our government to be able to handle the problems of food and shelter for all our people and then to help the world. The problems lie in inefficiency and waste. It's very sad.
