Thank you! I was just thinking the same thing as I was driving this afternoon. I was going to post that same thing later. If people are living so high on the hog that a moderate cut in pay makes them default on their loans, default on their credit cards, and not be able to pay their mortgage, then is it their bosses fault anyway? Or is it maybe they were just already living a little too high on the hog to begin with.
I'm not saying I'm not guilty of living a little high on the hog myself before the recession. But I am not blaming anyone other than myself for that. We all need to be accountable for our own actions and quit blaming others for choices we made. If we chose to be a little too liberal with our money or debt, we need to face the consequences of that. Not whine about it and make it seem like it's someone else's fault.
