Are we supposed to feel sorry for this person?,
I'm 65. My wife and I have been married 42 years. We have 2 grown children. We have lived in the Southern California desert for 40 years.We had no money or friends or skills when we came here. I sold firewood and my wife was a waitress. We scratched out a living for years, driving old cars that we fixed ourselves when they broke. I started a sign business knowing nothing about the craft and it turned into a life long vocation. My wife put herself thru collage and got a masters degree in design.
Nobody gave us anything. All the while we were working our fannys off, many of our friends and relatives who lived in the city were living well. New cars every couple of years, nice vacations, lots of presents under the old Christmas tree. Now they don't have squat! I should feel sorry for them? NOT! They had more money go thru their hands in a few years than I will see in my lifetime. I remember a guy telling me when I was young, "It's not what you make, it's what you save".
