That kind of thinking really ticks me off. It used to be that being a wage-slave was considered a necessary evil ... now only activities that earn money are considered worthwhile. Phoop on them - I'd rather grow tobacco.
That thinking ticks me off also. he actually went so far as to compare me to other SAHMs who he knows earn upwards of $20,000 a year - I took that as a major slap at those of us who have learned to adapt to one income by saving and not bowing to the almighty dollar.
