Message from Josh M. -OH in Nice Respectable People Group #general
Dude everytime I think of that restaurant I immediately think of poverty
It deeply saddens me
Just like Dollar Stores
@Virgil think more along the lines of a new flatscreen, leasing the latest model car, a new xbox. Shiny things that can’t be used to help you get out of poverty
for me it’s gross obesity
Things like phones are seen as status symbols as well.
Like new Nikes or expensive handbags
Even just leasing in general, my senior I took a personal finance class and that's turned me off of leasing/renting forever.
nothing like a trashbag full of popcorn shrimp
Saw someone on twitter say “women want free abortions and birth control but have iPhones”
Leasing cars, phones, furniture too.
Also Hi, I'm new here
Yeah thank god my dad is an accountant and taught me about fiscal responsibility from an early age
Status symbols for the poor are things like phones, TVs, brand name clothes, and even food. They cant afford a mortgage or reliable vehicles but they can eat like a king at Golden Corral with their new Nikes on and post about it to Instagram from their iPhone.
Poor people in really bad shape financially will do everything they can to dab on other poor people
More like Facebook
Facebook is more of a poor person thing I think
Everyone has had it beat into them that these things are important from the day mom plopped them in front of the TV.
That is usually what I associate chronic facebook posters with.
If you're poor and life sucks but an iPhone makes you happy it's a difficult temptation to resist.
Gotta get that dopamine hit from those likes
They can't feed they kids but they got iPhones/Shoes
His face cracks me up
His name is Jones Transfer as well.
Yup. And when tax time comes they got a car with some expensive wheels until the repo man comes.
This is reminding me of something I read about how people who win the lottery go broke in a year or so after collecting
Have you seen that video where the repo man comes, and all the people sit on the car so it can't be pulled away?
We know who you mean
Lol yeah I've seen many vids like that.
