Then what is the point of your post? Just to flame me AGAIN for moving to Maui to take a job at the County of Maui? Why do you and PacificNotEvenInHawaiiFlights insist on constantly needling me?

To warn others. This has nothing to do with you.

Oh I see, I was completely wrong. It's not REALLY bad that there are homeless county workers. The fact that a person is willing to take the job and live on the beach is proof that it pays enough. Since the unions are overpowered and overpaid, that homeless guy should probably get a pay cut! And let's cut lifeguards down too, because $12/hr is just too much pay for saving lives.

What is being said is you are basically saying:
I moved to a place where the cost were high, the wages low and everything I was told to prepare me for the reality of living in that place I ignored. Now I'm finding myself all screwed around, can;t make ends meet, find myself heading towards a heck of a let down, so I will blame:
A) The Place, wages, the Unions, the governement, the people, the price of gas, the food, the laundry soap, the temperture of beer on tap, the distance between places, too many K's in words, the hills, the flat roads, the water, the sky, the neighbors, the boss, the double yellow lines on the street, the number of cell phone providers, county governement, the mayor, the sunshine, the rain, the lack of snow, no drive in movies, sugar cane, sugar cane burning, the can;t pronounce it street names, and the inability to get laid without the service of prostitutes.
B) Poor planning on your part.

You picked "A" and put back on those same rose colored glasses that got you into trouble in the first place and refuse to see that there is a "B".
