-- — Recently I went to the Social Security office in Valdosta to sign up for my retirement benefits. Out of the roughly 15 people signed in to talk to a rep about benefits, I was the only one remotely of age to apply for retirement benefits. So if you want to know who's bankrupting Social Security, look to the young scam artists in our society.
I am a volunteer youth basketball coach, and in an attempt to find a gym for my team to practice at, I contacted a local school with a basketball gym. They let me use the gym last year to practice. However, I was told that this year I have to pay $250 to use their gym. It's a bit ridiculous that I am now asked to pay to do volunteer work.
