"They were not easy years. You have to understand, I was raised in a lovely neighborhood, as was Mitt, and at [Brigham Young University], we moved into a $62-a-month basement apartment with a cement floor and lived there two years as students with no income ... Neither one of us had a job, because Mitt had enough of an investment from stock that we could sell off a little at a time," Ann Romney told the Boston Globe in 1994. "We had no income except the stock we were chipping away at. We were living on the edge, not entertaining."Guess what, Ms. Romney? I lived in a basement apartment in Provo. Of all the places I've lived, Provo, Utah was probably the safest, most boring, suburban / college town ideal that one could raise a family safely there. In fact, I knew a lot of people who left their doors unlocked (including my housemates, which angered me because we had strange people walking into our apartment a few times). If living in Provo, Utah is "livin' on the edge", then Ann Romney seriously needs to get out more. What a shame to have all that money and not experience the world as most people live it and experience it. When all they know about the world is luxury hotels and servants handling their baggage and room service, no wonder why they are clueless about how the vast majority of the residents of this planet live.
Also today marks my 2 year anniversary of being liberated from the worst job I ever had. I feel like celebrating.
