That's why you are better off working in a bar/rest. in a tourist town. On a rainy tuesday in Sept., I made $300 a night at the big night club in K.W., during spring break double that! American dream suburbanites ,that talk down to my wife when she waits on them at the iconic wharf side seafood place, don't realize she's taking home between 300 and 500 bucks a day! She probably makes more than some of them. And they alway's ask. " How do you live here, what do you do?" Even if you are only walking with 100, living on a little sail boat with no rent, cable, water , electric, car insurance, car payment and an I phone, you can live a nice life. Get a Metro Pcs phone for 40 buck's a month and a bicycle and put the rest in the bank.
