30 hours a week isn't working your ass off. I work that in two days buddy. Maybe your paycheck wouldn't be so shitty if you worked some overtime. Moron.

One of the pros of Pittsburgh cost of living is the Aldi grocery chain. The cost of groceries there is beyond reasonable and cuts down on monthly food costs significantly.
