Hey jade, what were you doing in the projects? Looking for young boys or girls? Or drugs? If you work there, I'd can your behind in a big hurry!

What could be more lazy than cruising around looking for other people's dirty laundry?

"Can my behind"? Sounds a little weird, but let's stick to the subject. Can it for what? It's no secret what it's like down there.

Why would you think that I'm looking for young boys or girls? Again.....weird. Maybe YOU SHOULD stay out of there.

Oh, it's not the laundry you need to look for either. Strike 3, you're out. G

I just moved to Waynesboro from Frederick MD. I dont know about PA but I do know that were I use to live the Section 8 housing was 90% trash that lived there. Did not have legitimate work but had lots of kids in the most expensive name brand clothing and driving Escalades. Though we left there and do not want this area to be anything like it is there they should try to do a complex like they are doing there. Your rent is based on your income. A certain percent of your check goes to rent and thte rest is subsidised. But you HAVE to hold a legitimate (not under the table) job to live there. This seem to make since to me and it actually helps those who are helping themselves.

By the way we just bought up here and were not on anytype of assistance; but we had a great deal on rent in Frederick. $950 for a 2 bed one bath in downtown (cheaper than complexes on the skirts of town)No utilities were included in this price, gas electric water and trash were all separate bills. The house was very livable but it was nearly 100 years old, and needed work. Electric and plumbing were original still, the old windows and doors that you could feel the draft on.So once again I am still getting use to the prices in this area a little over 800 a month for a new unit sounds like a steal to me.

its sounds like to me u guys dont know wat u r talking about or jus have your minds made up that only people who have section8 are people who r on drugs or criminals. That is diffently not a fair statement to make. Be that as it may, it true some people take advantage of the help that being offered. It is actually people in this world who trying to make it but since u choose turn ur nose up at them or put lables on them what does that say on the type of person you are? Like me for intances i am single mother of two, i work, Im trying to go back to school to further my education, but now im in a bind cuz i need a place to live. Unfortunately where we are living at the house is in foreclosure. I dont make enough where i can be on my own and make it. Ive filled out for different housing authoritys in my area but the waitng list are horrible. Well i guess i wont have to wait to be homeless though lol. I would love to find a house based my income but i know that proboly wont happen. So now im on the search of appt based off my income. So if anyone knows anything please help. It does have to be in my city either i am pretty much open for any suggestions. Thank you
