Person 1: “I got $5000 from my parents to help me pay off my car”
Person 2: “I got $5000 from my parents to help me pay off my car, on an unrelated note, I simply cannot understand why people choose to be poor”
Person 1 is fine, Person 2 less fine
@RobinHood having been person 1 (it was $1000 and help buying tires, the first time my folks actually helped with car expenses of any kind) I'd suggest the difference is that person 1 spent time without the help and understands that it doesn't just naturally show up out of nowhere. Person 2 just kinda assumes it just happens, maybe.
@RobinHood "have you even tried having richer parents?"
@RobinHood mm. the worst is when people are like "i am a self-made man" and they have had TONS of help from their parents
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
