I (48M) and my wife (47F) both have very well paying jobs. I am a Pediatric Doctor and she's an Attorney, which have allowed us and our kids (20F), (17M) and (15M) to have a more than comfortable lifestyle.
My wife has a tendency to say things like 'Money doesn't matter' and that 'material things don't matter' and she says them all the time, which kinda irks me because she's right, but I was raised in a poor family, and I know that she wouldn't be saying the same thing if we were middle-class. But I haven't said anything up until this morning.
I had made a comment about needing a better watch, and my wife was saying her usual 'money doesn't matter'. I told her that she was only saying that because we are rich and because she has never experienced being without money in any sense.
Predictably, she got upset with me, and now I'm wondering if perhaps I overreacted and went too far.
Like seriously, those top shitposts, memes getting 5+awards are pissing me off. We are at war right now!! Fuck those Wall Street jackass who’s been calling us dimwits, we are about to teach them a lesson and make a name of ourselves. But you guys are here wasting money on stupid Reddit awards. I’ve been skipping my 20$ Wendy’s chicken dinner combo for three months now and buying GME every time it dips below 20$. All of you should be doing the same, everyone jack to the fucking tits!
Position: GME 🚀🚀🚀🚀
Edit: ARE YOU GUYS FUCKING FOR REAL!!!???
Edit2: I guess we just inverse everything around here...
Edit3: WHAT THE ACTUAL LIVING FUCK. Fuck it. Tell Cuck Sherman we will hostile take over GME using Reddit awards with lord Cohen. Let’s squeeze those motherfuckers back to their mom’s basement. 🚀🚀🚀
Just when I think the industry and McMahons can't get any scummier, I find out the McMahons donate to terrorists.
If I (or the guy I’m having sex with) want to go at it raw, I’ve started asking them “Do you have Plan B and abortion money?”
Im on birth control but it’s a fallback. It’s not 100% and I’m definitely not taking care of no baby when I’m working on my degree. I can pay for my own abortion no problem, but it’s really effective at either making the guy either wrap his willy or pull up his savings account.
I’m just gonna leave these here for anyone else who sees this post. Here’s some resources to help you get an abortion if it’s illegal where you are (or if you just don’t have access to one for whatever reason). They’ve been known to mail you pills discreetly:
Hi I am 17f my sister 21 f was always a rebellious child but never got in trouble. Our grandfather left us both funds for College in his inheritance. The only catch was to actually go to college. My sister was the party animal and she got pregnant at 18 , my parents took care of everything , she still live with us with no father in picture.
I wanted to start looking for collleges now to be better prepared but turns i have no money left, I'm literally sobbing while writing this my parents took my entire money and gave it to my sister.
I raised this issue on Christmas and I'm being blamed for ruining Christmas and not loving my niece or my sister. I told them yes i really hate each and everyone of them. I feel like an asshole for that.
My parents have offered 10k in exchange to calm me down but that amount was literally 80k they are now telling me that I'm greedy. Please reddit help me ? Am i really the asshole ? Should i take what they are offering me Right now because according to them this what they have got.
I was watching 90 day fiancé the other day, and it got me thinking about how everyone usually feels sorry for the dudes getting scammed for money or a visa. But the thing is, most of these guys are using the women just as much as the women are using them. They either want their youth, beauty, big fake tits, or they have a weird fetish for the ethnicity of the woman. Same goes for women who do the same (like Danielle and Mohammed) though they aren’t shown as often. She could’ve easily found some wonky eyed dude who would love her in the states but she went for MoeMoe and was surprised when she got scammed. Point is, gold diggers and the people who date them deserve each other 99% of the time becuase they’re both shitty people taking advantage of one another.
Edit; thanks everyone! If another person says It’s none of my business please keep in mind these people are on a reality show and choose to broadcast their relationship to the world, so it’s public business now.
Edit: after reading some comments I’ve changed my mind, I now believe if the “hot” person in this situation is in poverty, they are very much not shitty people and doing what they need to do to survive, and the “rich” one in this situation would be even dumber for not recognizing this
I'm 15m and I have been in foster care since I was born. From what I'm told, my mom was real young and her parents made her give me up for "adoption" which realistically turned into me bouncing around foster homes my entire life. My mom wrote me a letter that I'm surprised was even given to me, explaining everything. She basically said that I was the most beautiful thing she ever laid eyes on and that she is sorry that she couldnt keep me, as her parents wouldnt allow it and that she hopes I search for her some day. Which I plan to. Her parents can go fuck themselves though because they'll never be family after putting me through this.
In 15yrs I have been in 3 orphanages and 19 foster homes. Most families give me up after receiving their first state paycheck, but few have held onto me for a few months. My last foster mom was perfect. She loved me. Like, actually loved me. Not the fake bs that normal families spew. She did everything she could possibly do to bring out the real me and she truly, truly cared. Unfortunately my beloved foster mom passed away 3 months ago from terminal cancer that I wasn't aware she had. She included me in her will, where I recieved $50k in a trust fund that I cant touch until I'm 18 and $8k of just "play cash" that I can use now.
My new foster parents arent that great. I was dropped off on their doorstep the day after my foster mom died without so much as an introduction. They showed me around the house and then just left me to my own devices and that is how it's been since I've been here. They dont speak to me. They basically ignore my existence. Now I'm not sure if my case worker told them about the money I had been given because lately my foster mom has been dropping little comments like "I really need this surgery, how can I afford it?" She isnt speaking directly to me but it seems like it occurs every single time I walk in the room. So I'm assuming my case worker blabbed. Mind you, she literally does not have conversations with me so I dont even know what the surgery is for and admittedly I dont care.
The reason I feel like an AH is because I have this money and could help her out with the surgery where she is technically helping me out by putting a roof over my head. But at the same time, I know this home will be short lived as well and in a few years I will be 18 and forget these people exist, much like they do with me now. AND I know they already get $750 a month just to have me here. AITA?
I (42M) was hoping this issue would blow over, but my kids (15F and 12M) are still refusing to speak to me, and my daughter suggested I post about it here.
My wife (41F) comes from a lot of money, and her family really hates me because I’m not rich like them, but my wife doesn’t care and loves me anyway. Every Christmas they’ll send her and my kids extravagant gifts, while I get a pair of socks from Wal-Mart, but its whatever.
I lost my job due to the pandemic (my wife is a SAHM) and was really worried we wouldn’t be able to have Christmas this year. Next thing I know, my kids are sent Christmas cards with $250 cash in each. This is way more money than either of them needs, so I took $100 from each of them and used it to buy a nice Christmas dinner.
My kids tutted and complained the whole meal, and they didn’t even seem interested in opening the gifts my wife and I got for them. We told them to stop being ungrateful, and my daughter jumped up and yelled that she didn’t want to eat dinner with us, and my son followed her upstairs.
My wife and I believe what we did was justified, but because my daughter suggested I post it here, I thought why not. Do you guys think I was an asshole in this situation? For further clarity, I have never done anything like this, and definitely would not have done if I had a job. AITA?
Thanks for any insight
