Default Are people really this stupid??

This was on the homepage of Yahoo and it left me thinking .. duhh..
I was raised by a single mom who worked a full time job outside of the house, and maybe I didn't see her those hours but she kept a roof over my head.
What is wrong with people? seriously....

Here is a high level summary:
Woman has two kids.
She is divorced.
Her household costs 3k per month.
She babysits full time but only charges 5 dollars an hour because she is sorry for the other single moms. She doesnt want to charge them more because she couldn't afford to pay more than 5 dollars.
She cant pay her mortgage and is 9k behind.
She doesnt want to work outside the home because she may lose time with her kids.
She doesn't want to work the one day every other week she is free of the kids because it's her only time to herself.
They take her to a financial advisor to help her, but she doesnt want to earn more money or lose her house.

Apparently wants > needs and she does not compromise her wants. She will eventually pay the price when she is not saved by some Prince. But then it will be everyone elses fault, not hers.

If she charged more she could afford more which would justify her price hike since she would not be charging more than she personally could afford to pay.

There I solved her dillema.

What a dumb bitch.

Yes there are people like this out there. Sadly I just broke up with someone like this a month ago... Thank God.

My ex works 40 hrs a week for $6 an hr. Lives at home with her parents and while she says she has a want to move out of their place I've never seen it.
Doesn't want to leave her current job because the kids she babysits "need her". Still has 1 class to take before she gets her bachelors in Fine Arts (Spanish). Won't finish her 1 class because either its about money or time, both of which she has enough of to finish her degree.

Over the last year I've easily spent 10k trying to get her to move out of her parent's place, get her degree, get a decent job and for us to have some sort of social life. It was a lost cause. I have since cut ties with this woman because its not worth it to keep someone like this in my life.

I dont think this issue is isolated to being a woman in any way. I think people are out of touch with reality. By the way, according to that site her mom and dad are facing foreclosure as well. Her attitude scared me.. I guess I hadn't seen it like this. My larger fear is that someone will see her sob story, feel bad, and bail her out.

Probably not 10K but close to it when I add in all of the little shit. I'm in Iowa 400 miles from Detroit. 1-2 trips a month ranging from 200-500 a trip( gas, food, lodging etc..) plus the vacation that I shelled out $2500 for us so we could have fun in FL.

I should have bought a hooker they're cheaper.
