@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

2018-11-10 17:32:07 UTC  

for me it’s gross obesity

2018-11-10 17:32:13 UTC  

Things like phones are seen as status symbols as well.

2018-11-10 17:32:32 UTC  

Like new Nikes or expensive handbags

2018-11-10 17:32:47 UTC  

Even just leasing in general, my senior I took a personal finance class and that's turned me off of leasing/renting forever.

2018-11-10 17:32:51 UTC  

nothing like a trashbag full of popcorn shrimp

2018-11-10 17:33:05 UTC  

Saw someone on twitter say “women want free abortions and birth control but have iPhones”

2018-11-10 17:33:14 UTC  

Leasing cars, phones, furniture too.

2018-11-10 17:33:16 UTC

@Thugged Out Pissed Off absolutely cursed

2018-11-10 17:34:01 UTC  

Grrr indeed

2018-11-10 17:35:36 UTC  

Yeah thank god my dad is an accountant and taught me about fiscal responsibility from an early age

2018-11-10 17:36:23 UTC  

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.

2018-11-10 17:37:07 UTC  

Poor people in really bad shape financially will do everything they can to dab on other poor people

2018-11-10 17:37:11 UTC  

More like Facebook

2018-11-10 17:37:25 UTC  

Facebook is more of a poor person thing I think

2018-11-10 17:37:31 UTC  

Everyone has had it beat into them that these things are important from the day mom plopped them in front of the TV.

2018-11-10 17:37:33 UTC  

Poor/old/low IQ

2018-11-10 17:37:56 UTC  

That is usually what I associate chronic facebook posters with.

2018-11-10 17:38:53 UTC  

If you're poor and life sucks but an iPhone makes you happy it's a difficult temptation to resist.

2018-11-10 17:39:45 UTC

2018-11-10 17:39:49 UTC  

Gotta get that dopamine hit from those likes

2018-11-10 17:40:39 UTC  

They can't feed they kids but they got iPhones/Shoes

2018-11-10 17:41:34 UTC  

His face cracks me up

2018-11-10 17:41:42 UTC  

His name is Jones Transfer as well.

2018-11-10 17:41:46 UTC  

Yup. And when tax time comes they got a car with some expensive wheels until the repo man comes.

2018-11-10 17:42:23 UTC  

This is reminding me of something I read about how people who win the lottery go broke in a year or so after collecting

2018-11-10 17:42:36 UTC  

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?

2018-11-10 17:42:56 UTC  

We know who you mean

2018-11-10 17:42:59 UTC  

Thank you.

2018-11-10 17:43:01 UTC  

Lol yeah I've seen many vids like that.

2018-11-10 17:43:48 UTC  

Welcome @Josh M. -OH !

2018-11-10 17:44:10 UTC

2018-11-10 17:44:22 UTC
