My mom had saved money for Just hangin’ with my gnomies shirt, had a nice coin collection, savings bonds, and so on. All of it was spent on them and the stepchildren of that bitch. My dad was at the executive level at a major company while I was in junior and senior high school and yet I graduated with the same clothing I had from my 8th grade year. Friends of my parents later commented how they were horrified to see us wearing clothes that made us look like ragamuffins frayed and stained from 5 years of wearing them. We had holes at the elbows of our blouses and our pants were ridiculous.

When they moved out to the country, we couldn’t participate in any sports or Just hangin’ with my gnomies shirt. Even though our stepmother just laid around the house, she was too busy to even share in carpool or ride sharing, let alone pick us up after a swim meet. The only time they ever made any effort to have anything to do with me was when I was living and working in Germany as an Army Military Police specialist. They simply wanted use of my vehicle to go around Europe. I put myself through Michigan State University under the old Vietnam era GI bill by working two jobs and every summer, with the money I’d saved during my Army enlistment.
