im sitting here north of 6 figures trying to save 50 cents at sonic drive thru for a pricing discrepncy. kid told me today to stop being a poor ass and that he wasn't going to argue with me. closed window on me. manager same deal. LOL. i was in my beater pilot, thank god i just laugh at these situations now; and don't let my ego get hurt by general stupidness. if i even muttered "oh come on man im pretty wealthy" that conversation would have taken a wild turn
Yes, but that is the mindset that has made you successful. We are the same way. Retired now and plenty of kibble, because we pinched every penny till it screamed all our lives. My kids are the same way, pretty much, but they certainly had a lot more luxuries growing up than we did!

My X5 was my first car loan since 1979. I had a hard time getting aProved, partly because if that. I showed them my savings account and they were glad to lend me the money. Itís fun to not be so thrifty, but hard getting used to after a lifetime of holey underwear and bargain-basement everything.
