God, I Hope She Gets Downsized and Comes Back to the Real World

Paycheck to paycheck: Scraping by on $150,000 a year

NEW YORK (Money Magazine) — If she thought it would really fix her family’s finances, Amy Schuett would make it her New Year’s resolution to squeeze every bit of extra spending from the family budget.

But she’s already slashed so many little luxuries – the gourmet coffee, the restaurant lunches, the weekly dates with husband Brian – that she’s fresh out of ideas.

I live in NYC–operating on a similar budget, and would fucking kill to have this whiny shit as “a problem.”

The Schuetts don’t have any child-care bills (Brian is now a stay-at-home dad). They don’t have credit-card debt. They don’t splurge on fancy vacations. And they live in a nice but definitely not luxurious home on a three-acre plot in Elkhorn, Neb., just west of Omaha, where the cost of living is, well, livable.

Yet, says Amy, “We live from one paycheck to the next, we’re struggling to save and we never seem to have enough money to do anything fun.”

You gotta be kidding me. Nebraska? a three acre plot… Buy a townhouse! I live on a 40’x125′ plot that requires I keep ragin’ maniac canines and weaponry at the ready for when the local fag-gang fucks get their backs up any night and try to defy my property line, or come screaming drunk down my block waking people up. I got an overbearing tax overhead your fucking cowtown hasn’t yet conceived to slap down on its citizenry.

Really, STFU. If I’m making that kinda coin in your neck of the woods, I’m getting elected mayor.
