What are your priorities? Not being judgemental... Just curious. I have people who work for me who live paycheck to paycheck...They have the latest computers, cell phones, gaming systems, go out every weekend, and all kinds of other stuff. Yet when it comes to chipping in for a shop function they have no money. I get phone calls because bills are NOT paid. People who can't keep up with their work responsibilities because they spent the money on other things. People who spent their clothing allowance on a new phone.
My hubby and I make good money. We can afford all that stuff. But we don't buy it. We do have an XBox 360 and two laptops. We don't go out all the time. My cell phone is two years old and I bought it from someone else. His cellphone is a dumb phone. We pay our bills, feed our kid, and take care of ourselves for the future.
I know some people literally have to live paycheck to paycheck and I really feel for them. But why should I feel bad for those who have better tv's, phones, computers, game systems, and all that than I do. Why should I feel bad for those who don't know how to manage their money? or those who CONSISTANTLY make bad choices? Again...I know some people are in situations out of their control. And sometimes one bad choice leads to ruin. I feel bad then and will do what I can to help.
But don't try and make me feel bad because I make good money. I work hard and so does my husband.
Rant over. Thanks for listening.
