Re: I am 40 years old and don't have shit
In my 20s and early 30s I always went after big money industrial jobs, hard shitty work for above average pay.

I had 3 interviews at a Cement plant,($28/hour) very competitive hundreds of applicants for 4 jobs. I did 3 interviews and made the final cut. On my last interview I walked out....told the panel that I don't like all the dust and that the air was not clean. 5 Jaws just dropped and they stared like I was crazy.

The continual growth model has failed, they just don't know it yet.

At some point enough middle-class will turn into working-poor and things will slide. Literally every week the price of something goes up, gas, electrical, food etc.

No kidding.

And OMG, the price of coffee is outrageous. I mean, c'mon, it's one of life few, simple pleasures....and the cans are getting smaller and the prices are going on.

Agreed, but an occasional good deal does sometimes appear.

I just turned 50. 4 BR house on 4 acres with big shop building, 2006 GMC, 2010 Jeep, 99 F250, tractor, 4 wheeler, several 30's-50's cars, all paid for and I don't work. Best job I had in my life made 30k a year and worked there for 10 years. I bought and fixed up several houses moving up and making money each time to get to this spot in my life. Also bought, restored and sold many old cars to make money.

People brag about a lot less. For instance they own a expensive 4 bedroom house and Mercedes.

Building a nice life for yourself is something you should brag about, you could encourage someone to get off their arse and get a job to go to Seaworld. Or better yet working at Seaworld.

Anyone can make a life for themself, some people choose to be depressed and sit in front of a shonky funstation all day. Instead if they had a job they could go to a themepark, go snowboarding or buy a jetski. There's a lot to do on Earth, if you spend all your time on an internet forum then some people would consider you to be a loser.

No money

I make under $40k, and can fit everything I own(of value) in the back of a pick-up.

I don't fit in, other people talk about House prices and what they have. I ain't got shit.

You're lucky as hell!

Other than the mortgage, I've got so much of that shit it's unbelievable! It's nothing but a fucking headache that costs me 10s of 1000s each year to maintain, defend, manage, and pay taxes on.

The tax man is always lurking, inflation is eating it up 400k in savings like cancer, 2 million in real estate is now worth 1 million, but not many people have a million to buy it if I tried to sell it.

If I had it to do all over again, I'd live in a fucking tent, and I wouldn't have to worry about losing anything. I'd only have to worry about living one day at a time.

Count your blessings friend.

Re: I am 40 years old and don't have shit
I'm 40 two kids married for 20 years! Own my house and have a cabin with acreage in showlow az. I am the sole owner of a small business that is one of the largest of its kind in AZ that is held privately.
I am college educated and grew up what most would consider poor. (although I didn't think or realize it until after I moved away) . No body has ever given me anything in my life except a job and the pay check I earned.
I have never been on any goverment assistance and pay all my bills. I may not have payed them on time, but they did get paid:)
I have never financed anything except my 1st home. I own 3 personal vehicles. 2008 Armada,2004 Jeep, 2010 5 series BMW, 30' travel trailer,2 quads (for hunting):) and I recently bought a Ranger for fun! I also have a 2001 lifted golf cart for sale by the way. I never borrowed a dime against my properties even though I was hounded to death to do so. I pay all my sales,state, and federal taxes on time and happy to do so! You would shit if you know what I'm required to pay on a yearly basis:)

I'm not ashamed of the "things" I have not will I apologize for having them. I am not a man of religion but, I am a man of FAITH! I was raised southern baptist and tought to tithe. I have always tithed and I do so with a willing heart. I truly believe God has blessed me and prepared my life for me as I have always put him first and formost in my life.

I say if your struggling in life let go and let God. But also remember god helps those who help themselves:)

Re: I am 40 years old and don't have shit
I have five kids and a wife. where i live i made up to $18/hr as a painter for 14 years. Company went down the toilet. I have a house and 3 vehicles and alot of shit accumulated over the years. Im about to loose evrything i worked for. I make 8.50 an hour now. Your not alone at all. But i can see the pain in my family and feel powerless. Damn i can barely keep us warm and fed.On the upside i found a cabin on 1 acre for 9,000. 2 bedroom 1 bath.I may have to do it. I wish i was free like you OP sometimes.
 Quoting: farmer general 927602



We keep complaining but not many places a man can support a family with 5 kids and have a house and 3 cars while working as a painter.

Consider yourself fortunate that you were able to experience what in other countries more educated people get to enjoy.

The world is now a global community and getting more so everyday, what this means is the leveling out of the standard of living across the board. In places like China and India, the standard of living is going up and in places like Europe, Canada and the US the opposite is happening.

Rather than complaining about how good it was and bitching to the government (which in turn forces the government to get into wars, that we end up protesting), pull yourself together go back to school get an education and in turn a better job.

Good luck

Honestly, if I had good credit I would rack it. Try to get a decent vehicle and some gear stashed away. A pick-up and camper or motor-home. Rack the credit and walk way.
 Quoting: QuinEtiam


Don't do that dood. That's how banks lose money and people get refused loans. If people pay their debts then the banks won't have to sack employees or go broke. Just think of all the bank's investors that buy shares so they can retire rich enough to not have to go on the pension.

The fewer pensioners the better off the nation will be. Besides if you're poor you need those people to make money, they're the ones that will donate stuff to the salvos/food banks that give people food. If you can't be rich then someone else being rich isn't the worst thing in the world.
