What I Learned From the Privilege Meme|
I don't think it's inflation by itself as much as a combination of wage stagnation with some inflation. Inflation has actually been pretty low and some things have actually gone down in price. Although apparently all that's about to change.
Anyway, I was using the phrase "keep the electricity on" as a metaphor for "pay the bills" or whatever.
My mother was home till I started high school. Life was much easier after that.
