If you have X amount of money you can only spend an X amount of money. The have can come from earning it or inheriting it or as a gift.
I don’t understand how people can spend more than their means.I know the whole credit card sham.What I don’t know how do people forget what they have been given, earned or inherited? OK stolen even perhaps.
I always thought the maths was simple when it came to economics of money gained to money spent.The culture I come from we save for raining days too.We don’t blow off everything we earn.
I seem to have no respect for people who cannot identify what their means are and continue to spend beyond it. Living beyond ones means is so not cool to me. I doubt I can enjoy an Armani when bought by some one else’s money is what I am trying to say.
I have come across a lot of people, including my peers who are bogged down by the ‘must have’ culture.They do it, so should I. I want to wear the same clothes. I want to eat in restaurants too.I want to drive this car over that.I will only eat organic food even if they can only afford an apple a day.
Seriously what is the shame in accepting, that we just don’t have the money.Why can’t people identify their limits and stick to it. Why do people think it is OK to be in debt.
I don’t think money buys class.I don’t think one can really enjoy some one else’s money.I don’t think this sham can be maintained for long.I understand peer pressure. But does your peer understand your pressures? If not they might not be worth hanging around with anyway.
I think people should get over the hypocrisy and get real.
