Just Got Paid

I work full time in a restaurant as a dishwasher. I make minimum wage and I live in a one room apartment. When I get paid on Friday, I'll generally deposit my paycheck and keep out fifty dollars for myself. I'll then go to a local massage parlor where I get some relief. That's my entertainment for the week. I eat all my meals at the restaurant, so all I have to pay is rent.
