When is rich, rich?
the bottom of this article makes me mad. okay so they only make $144,000 and their mortgage payments are $48,000 of that, but that means at a 7% interest rate, they’re looking at $680,000 in mortgages. What is it with peoples’ need to go and buy things that are far beyond what they need and far beyond useful. How much time do you spend at home, hmmm, 6 hours awake maybe including weekends, so you probably don’t need a $1 million house. Its just stupid. Buy a house that is 2/3s the size for half as much in a neighborhood with regular people and not rich, stuck up idiots that you shouldn’t want to be around anyway and save 1/3 of your net income. they are also maxing out their 401(k) and giving their church $15,000 a year. maybe if they didn’t blow $60,000 on living in a house that is too big for them anyway and giving the reverend a new car every year, they would actually feel like they are money to spend.
hmmm, spend over $40K in interest (probably) on a mortgage, or go on 8 more trips with my wife annually, so i’m not at home anyway, hmmm.
