Today, I interviewed for a call center job making $13/hr, the only job where they called back. I used to live in a doorman luxury apartment in Manhattan with a prime skyline view and clubhouse. That was last month. FML

wtf? what happened? you are ridiculous. try rewriting this one so you don't make everyone on this site feel as small as your penis.

a) $13/hr in NYC is like $6/hr in most of the rest of the country when you factor in cost of living. Almost anywhere else, it's great. But NYC is INSANELY expensive. b) If you could afford the Manhattan Penthouse, most of you'd have one too. So, you can't really come down on him too hard about that. Now, that being said, I have absolutely no sympathy for you. People like you are the reason everyone else is suffering. Maybe this will teach you to appreciate the value of hard work and earning what you have.

i actually feel bad for you. i would die if that happened to me.

Welcome to America.

Been there, done that. Within about a week, went from a condo right off the lake in Chicago and white tie balls to working at a Potbelly's. Be grateful, Potbelly's starts at $9.50/hr but also requires no real skills.

I feel for you. The credit crunch SUCKS!

I'm guessing you're a victim of lehman? I am, and when they went down so did my financial stability...

by far the worst FML ever

I definitely feel the pain same thing happened to me but I have yet to find a job y would I take 13 an hour and make less than unemployment can't afford my bills as is

13$ an hour is much more than unemployment, asshole.

They pay you unemployment based on the previous hourly payment of the job you had, dumbass.

Hey asshole just b happy u have a job... ur making more than the rest of us! 9.15/hr here which im overjoyed about. but u should saved. No pity for u at all, u deserved this...

Hey asshole you dont know OP so dont directly say he deserved it. Most of us can live easily with that... But if you go from rich to poor its a bit different. And no im not rich :p
