The Middle Path, One Day At A Time

Trials And Tribulations of the Nouveau Poor

Leave a comment

New Yorker Alexandra Penney relates how she lost her life savings to Bernie Madoff and is now faced with having to lay off her three-day- a-week maid, Yolanda. “I wear a classic clean white shirt every day of the week. I have about 40 white shirts. They make me feel fresh and ready to face whatever battles I may be fighting …” she wrote, but without Yolanda, “How am I going to iron those shirts so I can still feel like a poor civilized person?”

Welcome to the rest of us, Alex.  No doubt Yolanda appreciates your concern.
