    I’m in Sales and I closed a deal with a commish of 5k. And I’m thinking great, I live in Canada, after tax that’s 2900 bucks, Canadian.

    This city is expensive and kids cost a fortune.

    When I was a living in my parents basement and I had weed money for the weekend and I took the bus I felt like a king.

    I know I sound poor.

    Anyone that says money can't solve your problems has no money.

    So 5k doesn't solve your problems but maybe 10k can. Work a little harder next time

    Any problem life throws at you is a lot easier to handle if you aint gotta stress off paying rent at the end of the month

    Great work man, I'm in sales and there's nothing better than getting a good deal in (well a morning blowjob is ok too).

    Nah dude, you just sound average. I was making 50 when I got out of college, was fine. Got a big ass raise at the next job, 30%, thought damn son u in the money now. Was able to save a good bit for awhile - but "for awhile" stopped eventually, you change your spending habits slowly... Most people grow into the income they are making eventually, unless they are super diligent. I'm in the process of trying to cut out everything I see as frivolous and unnecessary out of my and my wife's spending so we can at least try and retire early. It's a humbling fucking experience to go through all the expenses and be really honest with yourself...

    True!
    Make a 100k a year? They get a 500k house.
    Make 200k a year? Ill stretch and get that 1 mil house.
    Make 10 million a year? Buy 20 rare cars.
    Make 100mil a year? Buy that plane.
    Make 1 BILLION a year- buy a luxury yacht.

    What if my problem is I have no money? Then, some money would definitely solve my problem.

    We’re actually super close nowadays. She cooks for me and my kid and I’m not mistreating her anymore.

    It still hurts when I drive by the intersection where I know the guy she had rebound sex lives but I gotta be a grown up and suck it up if she can find it in her heart to forgive everything I’ve done.

    At the end of the day it’s a body count of 2 for her and I’m a degenerate scumbag.

    Sounds like more money would solve your problem.

    Mortgages brother. I get alternative high interest rate financing for all the people who can’t qualify for a mortgage with the bank.

    Bad credit, foreigners, criminals, low income, no probable income, self employed.

    I think everybody knows at this point that money can't buy happiness. It can however relieve a lot of stress and anxiety. So if you're going to be miserable, you might as well not add the stress of being poor.
