    Text - R600a 6.9k points 23 hours ago When they don't understand financial restrictions. There have been a few people I've met who never really thought about not having enough money to do something. Anything from fixing a car to going out to eat. If you say you can't do something because you're broke and they respond with, "Just put it on your credit card." they are likely a candidate.

    Text - the_blind_gramber 5.8k points 18 hours ago Had an employee once who was fresh out of grad school. Paid him 60k. He drove a brand new 120k Mercedes, lived in a 4k/month penthouse, wore all bespoke clothing, etc etc. His salary was definitely a blip on his financial radar. It was wild.

    Text - braxistExtremist 5.0k points 22 hours I used to work with a guy years ago. We were both in our mid twenties, and both working in junior white-collar jobs, making around the same pay. So while it was okay money it wasn't amazing. This guy was buying his third home in as many years. Like, he already owned two (lived in one, rented out the other) nice houses, and was buying a third and keeping the other two to build a mini property portfolio. When I told him that my wife (who also worked a w

    Text - dougiebgood 2.9k points 23 hours ago An old co-worker of mine, who was a super nice guy, never made any higher than $40k. He was able to buy a house while his wife stayed home with his son, got a brand new Lexus every 2 years or so, posts pictures of him on traveling on planes all the time in first class and/or a private jet. His first year at work he'd talk to us like all of this common, but I think he learned pretty quickly to keep quiet about his privileged life.

    Text - yellowloki 1.9k points 21 hours ago I (30F) just started to date a guy, not too long after I lost a job. I took a roommate in to help me pay the rent and he got mad. Said that he will be less comfortable because of the privacy and couldn't understand that I put money before the relationship. I said that I will not spit on 500$/month and that I won't be able to pay. His solution : ask money from my parents and wait a couple of months til he moves in and SAVES me. After a fight, I mostly di

    Text - Deicidalmaniac41 715 points 19 hours ago My car broke down last winter so I had to take the bus to and from work. A younger co-worker asked me "Why not just BUY a new one?" I told her, "Yeah, because I just have new car money to pull out of my ass." She responded with "You don't even have $5000 saved up?" No. No I don't. At a job where I make $2200 a month and my rent is $1200, and I have two kids, how is that possible?

    Text - funky_shmoo 692 points 21 hours ago edited 4 hours ago For a period of time in the early 2000's I lived in Williamsburg Brooklyn. Rents in some parts of Williamsburg were and still are ridiculously expensive. I couldn't afford to live in the vicinity of the "cool" area, otherwise known as Bedford Avenue. Instead I roomed with 5 other people in an converted 3 bedroom apartment about a 15-20 minute walk away from Bedford. Every so often I'd find myself at a cafe on Bedford avenue and see al

    Text - Langhof 369 points 22 hours ago edited 20 hours ago Not understanding the value of the dollar. Example: when my best friend and I were World of Warcraft addicts in middle school thru college, there would be times where I would run out of money for my sub (it was damn expensive for a kid like myself buying my own way using prepaid time cards). My best friend would say "oh, just do what I do and charge it to your dads credit card, that way you can just pay by year and not worry about it." H

I told him that he couldn't park there and he said "sure I can, it just costs me €370,-" I've never been that baffled by a response before in my life

    Text - extra_username 7.8k points 20 hours ago I used to know a girl who always complained about "handouts" and "lazy poor people" and "pointless charities". I found out the Mustang she drove was a gift from her father, her parents paid her rent, and her high-paying job was at her mom's company She honestly didn't see any of that as charity. She got the car, job, and apartment because she's so amazing and deserves it, obviously.
