They take a lot of guff and a lot of people squeak when they walk or are on fixed incomes here in florida, so to see only a dollar & change left OR less is not uncommon for a $12.00 ticket.
I guess I didn't make it clear enough when I put in bold letters
that the $100+/night my ex made was FIFTEEN YEARS AGO
. For five days of work per week, she brought into the house somewhere between $500 and $600 cash money. At the time, it was enough for her to drive a new car, pay the rent, and have all the essentials that she needed -- and, it was more than she could have made elsewhere, in the same number of hours, with the same flexibility of schedule (short of becoming a topless dancer, and, quite frankly, she didn't have assets to pull that off!). In my area of the country, there are a lot of professionals (administrative assistants, bookkeepers, etc.) who might still not take home over $500/week.
