Oh lordy $4500 in credit card debt.  Ohhh man, whatever shall she do with $4500 worth of credit card debt.

 :facepalm:

I do like that the Credit companies took one look and set a 1500 limit on each of her cards. :goonette:

What is it with goons and being completely incompetent at managing money? I have monthly visa bills higher than this dumb chick's 4500 over three cards a couple of times a year and pay it off in full every month. But then i'm not spending all my money on anime and pokemon cards.
D&D really does pretend to be a bunch of working class heroes when in reality the heaviest thing they've ever lifted are their colossal asses.

Amazon allows Kindle owners to read books through a Netflix-esque monthly service.  Each month, the company would put aside a chunk of subscription income for self-published authors, which Amazon would divvy out based on how many customers looked at or downloaded their books.  So, essentially, self-published authors could game the keyword system to generate views and get paid, even if nobody ultimately read their books.  The new system pays authors based on how many pages were read, so the game changes from having the best keywords/cover art to giving people a reason to read as many pages of your book as possible (which isn't that hard to game either, but takes more work than sticking a naked dude on the cover and calling it Pirate Werewolf Rape Fantasies XII).

http://www.reddit.com/r/personalfin...amount_of_debt/

quote:
I am a 22 year old living in California and I have got myself into quite the hole over the last few years. I have been working at a MMJ dispensary since I was 18 as an independent contractor (I am a delivery driver and I am assuming the company is set up like this for the companies benefit). I was completely oblivious to what being a 1099 worker meant and pretty much blew off doing any taxes since I began working there. Well that finally has caught up to me and the IRS sent me a letter about a month ago regarding 3 years of back taxes I am going to need to pay. Here is what I earned over that time period:
2011 - $17,725 2012 - $21,994 2013 - $22,788 2014 (Current) - $26,605
On top of back taxes, I have over 20k in medical debt from two ER visits prior to when I acquired insurance. I have 3 maxed out credit cards (1500/each) that I am actively trying to pay back but with little to no success. I feel extremely stuck and unable to look forward.
I have been depressed for a few years now and kind of just turned my head to everything. I began gambling as soon as a I turned 21 which definitely did not help my cause, I would say about 1/3 of credit card debt is completely gambling related. I am happy to say its been weeks since I’ve gambled and I am ready to face reality and tackle my problems, I really just don’t know where to start. I am currently living paycheck to paycheck struggling to make ends meet.

From that same thread. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHhhahahahahHAHAhahahah!

 :facepalm:

Hippies fucking hippies.

Did this faggot just get super nervous and file has taxes over the last three years all at once?

I read that a few weeks ago and am pretty sure that most of what he does is fantasy wank bullshit designed to get people to visit his blog and make him cash through CC and airline referrals.
Casino whoring was great while it lasted...managed to fund my final year of uni thanks to this 'job'. But playing 1500 hands of blackjack can be fucking soul destroying.

Gah that sounds like a nightmare of a life.  I love to travel .... To GO SOMEWHERE.   The whole airport and airplane part, even in first class, are a means to an end and always at least a little annoying.
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

Necrobumping this thread:

http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3781340&pagenumber=1

The title of the thread is "Out of your Parents Basement: Tell me about going from Goon to Great"

This thread has a lot of trigger fuel in it.  I think the OP wanted to hear some stories of some sadsack goons who woke up and decided to take control of their life.  The thing is, anyone who did that likely does not post on SA anymore or got banned.  So instead the thread turned into a bitchfest where goons whine about how hard it is to be a millennial.  Anne Weightley stops by in the thread to dogpile, as per usual.

It's a depressing look into a group of people who will live in mom's basement forever.  When their boomer parents get sick of their kids, move to Arizona and tell them that they can't come with, you can really see these niggas gargling buckshot to cope.

There's some p dece realtalk on the first page though:

Quote
Fuck you. You sound like a millennial that doesn't like the fact that the Facebook generation isn't nearly so cute anymore and a lot more useless than could be believed. Geez, a culture based around vapid social media combined with all the other horseshit we love to shit on (on these forums particularly) turned out a generation of dopey children with zero ambitions. Who coulda guessed it.

For the OP, your avatar is Blackadder which makes me think you're British. I can easily say out of all the cultures I've lived in, the English and English youth take indifference to another level. Americans can be brash, but at least the ones I've met have ideas (some of which seem crazy) they want to live by. We Australians love to drink and carry on like trash, but when the chips are down we've got strong ideas about what it is to be an adult (living at home with Mum and earning 50k a year working retail isn't one of them). But in England I felt a pervasive sense of 'meh', moreso than anywhere else. Even the Italians seemed to have more to strive for, despite being broke as fuck.

I really like what the person said above about earning money. You keep running into this fucking infuriating idea with millennials that their work needs to be amazing and they're just too good (or something) for doing many jobs. Sitting a desk and working (like a doctor, lawyer or engineer does) seems like some great failing.. you've got some lame desk job which is mundane and YAWN. Many aren't stupid enough to then follow up with 'so how do I become a fighter pilot/rockstar/astronaut' because they know that's actually out of reach.. but they still don't seem to make the connection that if they're not actually going to be a tennis pro then perhaps doing one of the 'lame mundane professions' is perhaps not quite so lame at all.

That's at the teenage level. There is a multiplier effect with time, so by the time someone with a brain got on with it gets to 30.. they're not doing the bitch work anymore, they're pulling down real coin and making serious plans. By 35 they're driving a BMW and living where they choose, with more disposable income than they know what to do with (and that's after putting away thousands a month in investments).

I think I've gotten through to my partners 14 year old son. He was all about photography and he's quite good, I like it too. But he said something the other day 'yeah photography is cool, but I can do that as a hobby. I want to earn coin when I finish. I'm thinking maybe commerce?'.

Now commerce is some boring shit, we can do better than that.. but let me tell you, mate, you are on the right track :)

Naturally, :shaking: ensues.

I keep encountering guys with no skill sets, no education and no jobs in online social circles. So what, classic neets? Big deal, right?

Dudes tell me they've "moved beyond the capitalist system." They live with their parents in a first world country mindlessly consuming entertainment and waiting for a real life Dilbert's boss to call them up to spend all day playing on a computer in an office to draw a salary, I guess. Sometimes I ask them what their plan is for when their parents die. Get real quiet at that one.

I only get a little frustrated when they try to argue that there's no dignity in bottom tier labor. No dude, when you're unemployed you're the new bottom. The literal retard pushing shopping carts at a grocery store? He has more control over his destiny than you do! How do I know? Because if he wants to order a pizza that week he doesn't have to wonder where the fuck he'll get the money from!

1. There is nothing wrong with being an ordinary person with an ordinary job.
2. Almost no one starts out with 30 years of success under their belt.... your first apartment will be shitty.
3. Be a plumber. Be an electrician. Be an HVAC person. Your fingernails will be dirty, but your work will always be in demand, you'll charge $100/hour for your time with 3 years of experience, and you wont have crushing college debt.

realtalk.txt

This is the truth, however. I'm a bit pissed at myself for being so lazy, my career could've advanced faster and I could be earning more at this point. However, I've got a trade. There's something I can do well that will always be in demand. That's a pretty good feeling. I'm glad I dropped out of university (twice) and rather focused on gaining work experience in my field.
But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. It’s just that the science fiction is usually titled ‘technical proposal’ and the fantasy is titled ‘budget proposal.’

I dunno all this real talk seems just as delusional because the reality is half the skilled(not unskilled) workforce in America is out of work entirely or is doing unskilled work.

A fucking ex-microsoft employee took my order at Wendy's today and he's 45. The average worker starting at one of these places or other places like Shop Rite are not even getting close to 30 hours a week because there's a backlog of people taking these slots.

Workforce participation is also down to historically low levels. I mean if every unemployed person was a NEET, waifus would be more prevalent in America  :depressedlesbian:. Not to say that NEETS don't make up a fraction of the unemployed %, but the fact is getting a job really fucking sucks in many areas and if you already have a family moving is also another expense that you may not be able to afford. And you know it's really bad when people are taking equity out of their homes to stay afloat because those numbers are up through the roof.

Bumping this dead and gay thread to ask which one of you wrote this:



Background: A lawgoon student wrote an e-mail to a law firm at 4:57 AM asking for advice before an interview and then asks if they are part of the ((tribe)).  The law firm was not too happy (he must have been right, oy vey) and wrote the lawgoon's career service department asking wtf was up with the lawgoon in question.

What kind of idiot asks for interview advice from the place he's going to interview at?! That's like asking the football team you're gonna play against for pointers, ffs.

Best case scenario, he didn't actually want tips, it was just a way to say [[[ME TOO GUYS]]]
At dawn I leave the hut. My woman is happy in her toil. When I return from my daily gathering, I am tired and hungry. There is no food or fire, because she has dragged out her ceremonial betrothal skins, and spent the day weeping because they do not fit. And somehow this is MY fault?! And now her family has come to comfort her. They have been with us since Nord has blown his icy breath. If her brother is not out of our hut by planting time, there will be a clubbing!

The interview was in Jew York which makes the the question even better.
