Remind me why I am getting up for work tomorrow

I am very happy with the life I have. I am very happy with the house I live in. I am very happy with the job I have. But sometimes you do scratch your head and think why bother. Tomorrow I will get up at 5:30 to go to earn a crust to pay for the house I live in, and over the year will spend over £8,000 just to get to work.

On the same street of 10 houses there is a neighbour (nice enough) who does not work (fit enough and young enough to) who gets their rent paid for; gets their council tax paid for; is in their pyjamas walking their dog when I get home from work, and now is having slimming word paid for them by the state.

I wouldn’t mind getting up late, having a dog, having someone pay my bills, and the state pay for me to lose weight.

Someone remind me why I am getting up for work tomorrow?

    Same reason you aren’t going out robbing your neighbours in the night.

    You are getting up for work because you aren’t one of those people who wont.

  2. because it is an addiction demanded by the capitalist system

  3. ‘Ahhh, so I should just sit on my back side and expect someone else to pick up my tab? OK.’

    That is your personal choice.Work is a means to an end.There are other options;

    1) live off the state
    2) be financially independent
    3) die

    You did ask ‘Someone remind me why I am getting up for work tomorrow?’
    the answer is ‘because it is an addiction demanded by the capitalist system’
