Accepting government services is not a sign of weakness. You put money into the system when you work, and you take it out when you need it. I collected unemployment for a month once, and I got free (though shitty) health care for a few months after college when I didn't have insurance.

"But I never took anything from the government!" Shut up and be thankful that you've been this fortunate in your life. The majority of the people in the world do not have access to the education you've received, much less clean water. Being an American with parents and a job doesn't mean you're a better person; it means you were lucky.

Show some appreciation. As my grandmother used to say, "Kiss the ground." Also as my grandmother used to say, "If you deal cards like that in Vegas someone will fucking shoot you."

So the Ways are apparently a two-headed monster of emo girliness. Honestly I'm just surprised I didn't realize this sooner.
