numi, not sure if you are targeting me or I’m just paranoid…
but for the record I do make more than 30k a year, I have quite a few credit cards but they are not maxed out, overall my debt situation is okay ex-the mortgage on my apt. I live in a 720 sqft apt, in midtown, admittedly not as nice as your uptown neighborhood, but it is a decent building. I do drive a 6-series, but it was purchased used without a loan. I do tan a moderate amount don’t have any tattoos and do wear interesting graphic tees but they are bought from the Atrium and dept stores, not express.
PS I’m not italian, but I do agree with Farley statement.
buddha, thanks for letting me know more about your personal situation than was ever needed. My comment wasn’t directed towards you nor was it about you. I don’t know anything about you, besides that you spend more money on sweaters and turtlenecks than anyone I know.
The phrase “$30,000-a-year millionaire” is a commentary on how there are a lot of folks in Dallas that earn lower- to middle-class incomes but spend like they’re millionaires. There’s a level of socioeconomic pretense that pervades certain areas of Dallas, driven primarily by confused individuals who spend way beyond their means in attempt to fool others into thinking they’re wealthy. Because of their vapid existence, these people, in a manner of speaking, do not know how to “keep it real” (unlike myself).
“It’s not what you make, it’s what you fake” – this is the mantra of the $30,000-a-year millionaire, also known as the “Douchebag in the Mist” (see below).

I’ve just bought a new pair of timberland boots for $50 (with $50 markdown) to replace my old pair.
I’ve been wearing the same pair of $80 timberland boots for the last four years on every single casual day. Finally, the soles started to fall apart by the end of the fourth year.
I own 3 pairs of shoes: one pair of sneakers, one pair of boots, and one pair of dress shoes. The former and latter need to be replaced soon..

YOU DONT OWN ANY SANDALS? HOW DO YOU LIVE?
I have two pairs of slippers.

and buddha, yeah man, geez, nobody’s on your case too hard for real. cfai needs to get this guy his grades so he can let a load off.
and to numi, he has full right to spend as he wishes, i just dont’ understand the spend-now worry about it later attitude, its where my inner financial planner kicks my inner equity analyst in the arse.
and yes buddha, thanks for letting us know that you meet 60% of the requirements to being a complete douche without needing to. made my hour.
