Knowing that a lot of life’s stress revolves around your bills and your job, only an idiot would think that having more money would create more problems.
Cripes, the fact that the vast majority of the country has to work forty hours a week to SURVIVE should be an indication that money is the problem.
People who complain that the lottery winnings get taxed like crazy and you actually “only” walk away with half of that 100 million, just don’t get it. Get me a million bucks and I’m done with the race forever.

Someone actually told me that they weren’t interested in retiring early because they liked working…
Here are some other phrases that make me cringe:
– If you make more, you just spend more
– I’ll be paying that off for the rest of my life anyway
– It was on sale, so I couldn’t pass it up
– This might be my only chance to buy a new car
– I’m not going to go without in order to save money
