Denver is full of adults who live like teenagers. Grown men whose only employment is delivering Jimmy Johns or working at Starbucks. They think because they have a job, the world should open up to them and give them everything. I could train a monkey to pour coffee, then give it two pumps of some shitty syrup. I live in the Hale neighborhood, 900 sq ft apartment for $1,000. I have had 5 jobs in the last 5 years, each job paying a higher salary. I didn't complain, I worked my ass off to move up in life. I don't have cable, I drive a used card, I don't go out to bars to pay for drinks. It's called becoming financially fit. Denver's young adult population is so full of beta males, its actually pretty easy to compete for jobs, since most of the competition are weak and have no direction in life. Most of you slackers couldn't cut it in a different city with more competition and less stoner population. If you don't like your rent, tough luck. You're the idiot who signed the lease. Better yet, go spend your minimum wage paycheck on Pabst beer and fixed gear bikes, just like me and my buddies did when we were 13 years old. Grow the fuck up, you weak ass bitches.
