“Start saving as soon as you can. You don’t have as much money as you think you do.” Told me that when I had a part time job whilst living at home. Thought I was loaded until I moved out and realized how expensive life is. (Jesmasterzero)
I still don’t know how my wife and I spend at much as we do given our relatively frill-free lives. We live well under our means, but when I look at our annual expenses it’s still a little bonkers. I have a lot of respect for people with low incomes who manage to stretch well enough to live in our city on less income than our expenses. (Sector_Corrupt)
That addiction and alcoholism runs in the family. I thought that because I’d seen what it did to them (and other family members), I’d be able to outsmart the addiction… Luckily, I was able to recognize the signs early on and get help, and nothing really got out of control, but I realize I’ve still got it. If you gave me a drink, I’d just not stop. (violetmemphisblue)
Not the Truth
“If it sounds too good to be true, it is.” (StevenHuffman)
I quit my job last month. My boss offered me a 300% pay raise to stay. I said no. All my friends said “Why didn’t you take the offer?!?!…” That offer was crap. He was gonna keep me long enough to hire my replacement. Then fire me in a month. (smooth_bollocks)
