Yahoo! you have unleashed my rage. This is what I get for not sticking with MSN for my news. Mr. Andrew Schiff, a director for marketing at Euro Pacific Capital Inc., says that his $350,000 a year isn't enough for him and his family to live off of. Really? I don't know anyone who makes that much money a year, but everyone I know has (mostly) comfortable lives. A man named Alan Dlugash, who works as a financial planner for the wealthy, said this about this type of scenario (because apparently a lot of America's top 1% feel the same), "People who don't have money don't understand the stress. Could you imagine what it's like to have three kids in private school, and then tell them they have to be pulled out of it?"
This man says that you don't understand stress because you're poor.I say we all paw at his suits with our poor hands.
Woah, woah, woah....people who don't have money don't understand stress? Did he really say that? Did I make that up? No, I didn't. This guy is really that narcissistic. How would not having money be stress-free? Constantly worrying about how to feed your kids? Wondering how far they can drive before their car just stops on them, and in turn not being able to get to their minimum wage job to feed their family? Public schools!? THE HORROR!

He later said, "If you're making $50,000 and your salary gets down to $40,000 and you have to cut, it's very severe to you," Dlugash said. "But it's no less severe to these other people with these big numbers." I wonder if anyone told him that the average household income for 2010 was $49,445. He'd probably laugh and say, "What can you buy with that? Toilet paper?"
Daniel Arbeeny said in the article that his, "income has gone down tremendously." He even recently had to drive to a market in Brooklyn to by discounted Salmon at 5.99 a pound. What a hard life, sir. When asked about his income, he declined to comment. He did, however, assure us that he no longer takes his annual to Whistler, Tahoe, or Aspen.
|Which is too bad, I don't think I could hear him whine about being rich up here.|
Moving on, a real-estate investor and hedge-fund manager said that most people on Wall Street don't save. I thought these guys were supposed to be smart? With their large incomes, you'd think they'd save some money for a rainy day. I guess I was wrong, because when they don't get their bonuses, they whine to Yahoo! reporters about how hard it is to live off of over a quarter million dollars a year. Just a side note, I feel like some of you may think that I would be in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement because of this. Just to clarify, I'm not. I'm all for capitalism and being successful. I just don't like how these people whine when they don't get their bonuses that are larger than an entire year's pay for some people. It's childish and extremely narcissistic. Vote, Follow, PEACE OFF.
