  • As a young, successful lawyer (and definitely not a fat old man who spends all day pretending to be a woman online), I make quite good money. I try to be frugal so I can afford a luxury car that I can drive it up on the footpath and mow down pedestrians.

    I still believe in treating myself on occasion. For example, when I'm feeling randy, I'll wander straight to the alleyway behind my local Tesco and waste a good £5 of my hard earned money to pay the local chavs to violently beat me with an electric kettle. Even a fiscally responsible lawyer needs to get her jollies off from time to time. It's important for a lady, who's definitely not a fat old man, to pamper herself, and there's simply nothing better than a lovely, brutal battering by a bunch of derelicts to make a girl feel important.

  • Nothing wrong with being frugal and increasing your worth. It just opens more doors in the future.

    Personally I'm on the path of being frugal because my dream of building my dream castle/homestead.

  • It's normal for no amount of money to seem like enough especially the more you have weirdly for some reason. It's a normal occurrence, but I can't say I fully understand it.

  • I suggest that you read the book "The Millionaire Next Door"

    Most people who have accumulated substantiation wealth live modest humble lifestyles.

    Most of the ones who flaunt expensive items and an expensive lifestyle are up to their necks in debt.

    Of course, some of the truly wealthy does in fact show the world that they are wealthy.

      • Very good article.

        As a young man I dreamed of having my own metal working shop (lathes, milling machines, etc) at home. I built telescopes (including grinding a mirror), and was one of the local repair genus kids (if something broke that no one else knew how to fix).

        While I decided in the end to pursue engineering instead of being a machinist... I can tell you that I would have made more $ as a machinest and had a lot less stress (and more steady employment). I'm sure I would have become a Tool & Die maker - and have my own fortune stashed away.

        There is a lot of very real truth in that article. The younger generation today does not know how to fix anything.

        I replaced the rear parking break shoes on my car. The person I was told was one of only 3 master brake mechanics in my state fully certified for parking brakes had no idea whatsoever how to adjust them. I returned the car to the repair shop 4 times. Finally the retired from day to day work owner of the shop had to come in and show this so called "master break mechanic" how to adjust a cable pulled set of parking brake shoes.

        If not for some health issues and my back - I'd be working in the trades right now and easily pulling down $100,000 ++ a year.

        • Idk whats wrong with your back but I recommend asking the doctor about micro discectomy surgery. Its minimumly invasive they just make a small hole and go suck the gooey shit that came out of your disc thats touching the nerve. With in 2 weeks you'll feel so much better and the surgery isnt even that bad. It sucks but I didnt even take any of my pain meds. I was basically bed ridden before. I wish I had done it sooner.

          • The back issue you describe is much simpler than mine.

            There's a really long word name for it... but almost my entire family (descending from my fathers side) has a genetic structure weakness in the vertebrae "arms" that provide much of the support and allow flexibility. Most of my brothers and sisters have had back surgery to fuse a few vertebrea - and most of those are in worse back shape than I am even after their surgery (and I have never had back surgery).

            The proper fix for my back is to go in through the stomach to get to the spine - and assemble a titanium support cage at the most damaged area... and they are working on added flexible supports for other weak and deteriorated vertebrae "arms".

            The surgery I describe clearly knocks you down for at least 3 months... I had a co-worker who had that surgery.

            I'm glad that your issue was so easily fixed.

            I'm keen on holding off for until they better perfect those flexible supports. I'd rather not have too many fused vertebrae. That seems to create other problems as well.

            Until then - I'm focusing on other ways to make money. Just because someone moved the cheese does not mean I will not find a way to get an adequate supply of it... :)
