Does anyone else get infuriated by other peoples' parents giving them everything?

I don't think there's a more infuriating thing than hearing that some normies' parents bought them a car and paid their entire college tuition.

Like what the fuck? Why do I have to cover the cost of all this bullshit while some fucking normie gets to live for free and enjoy saving up $250k by the time he's 25?

HOW is this fair? WHY is this fair?

Work harder and give your children the same things you missed out on. stop perpuating a cycle of misery believing life should be fair. You have two arms and two legs, You have the ability to take out loans and get a degree. Go do it, you werent going to do anything else. right? Save and let compound interest guide you to millionaire and give that to your kids.

user. I understand this all very well, and I've been living like a frugal jew for my entire life as a teenager. I will be a millionaire at some point in my lifetime.

But the thing is that I want the money NOW, not in 20 or 30 years. I don't want to save like a frugal kike and use a shitty phone, a shitty computer, and drive a beater because I know In the Future(tm) I'll have $x amount of money.

Yes if I save and keep working at this pace I'll have money for retirement. But I don't want it when I'm 60 and old as fuck. I want it now. And I never will or can get it. It's just not fair. I'm tired of living like a borderline homeless person. I'm tired of regularly contributing to my investment portfolio. I want to have fun.
I want to enjoy myself.

I could get hit by a car and die tomorrow, and I'll have to show for it is myself living in The Future(tm).

Born to the wrong people, a.k.a "Poor". Simple as that. Among the world population, very few ever get to even be close to be considered "rich". In the eyes of perhaps 75% of the global population, you are already wealthy. But in the eyes of the relatively wealthy firstworlders, to be truly rich at a young age implies a statistically tiny chance of simply being born into it. Or the even smaller chance, more like an anomaly, of being a LEGITIMATELY successful, engrepeneurial individual and truly earning that $$$.

Either way, whining will not earn you shit. Grit your teeth all you want, at least you will know what it means and what it takes to get what you want from life.

My friend, in the short term that might be nice but that's like being a lion being raised at the zoo. If you put that lion back out there it can't survive because it's too weak. 2/3 of the world's billionaires are self made for a reason.

I have a friend named Julian, grandfather is a millionaire. My friend went to college and dropped out, went to another college and dropped out, and then went back to the first college he dropped out of and dropped out AGAIN. His grandfather bought him a brand new Honda Accord coupe which he uses to deliver pizza. He's a hipster that just smokes weed....think about it...is he really successful?

Ppl like you need to use that fucking pain and use that fire to motivate you, use all that hate to drive, mold, and shape your future. Fuck bitches, fuck doing anything the isn't serving your future self!

There are your possible future children that aren't even born yet that could possibly starve in the future because of your choices today. I don't believe in Christianity or any organized religion, but I'd be damned to say paths aren't chosen. Success isn't a mistake my man, hope is for the homeless.

Write down those fucking goals, and take millions of baby steps to get to it. And when that goal is right in front of you take that big fucking leap and reach out for it! It's yours OP. And with all that pain you went through? The sweet nectar of success will taste even sweeter.

There's currently a big heroin epidemic where I live. And it's mostly occurring in neighborhoods that are upper middle class. My theory is these kids that grew up spoiled and were given everything, can't cope with the world. When you're given everything you want, there's no goals to achieve and no incentive to work hard for your dreams.

There is one factor that has more to do with where you end up in life than any other. It's not race, it's not country of origin, it's not the income bracket your parents come from: it is and always has been IQ. Nothing has a higher statistical correlation with wealth than IQ. Poor countries are poor because of low IQ. Rich countries are rich because of high IQ. Ditto with people. Best estimates on heritability is that 75% come from your parents average and the last 25% is random/environmental. If your parents are poor because they are retarded, you are also most likely retarded. Do humanity a favor and dont breed.

It's not fair. Nowhere does it say life is fair. However, if it helps, chances are those Normies aren't going to be doing so well in a couple years. When everything is given to you, value is lost forever, but when you work hard for something you learn that through your sacrifice you know how much better off you are. The richest people in the world don't leave there kids shit for inheritance, the give it away while alive. Are they going to work to make sure that there kids get the proper tool? Sure but if you give a kid a couple million dollars and tell him go succeed that money will not last 2 generations. You send a kid to College that's better. You put yourself through college it's the best because you did it on your own. There is a sense of accomplishment there

GoogleCat

Yeah but see that's the problem. It's why economists like J.S. Mill decried inheritance. It means you don't work for what you get. I will be fair, other economists like Irving Fisher have said there is a fluid movement of wealth in succeeding generations and the overall wealth will ebb and flow, but I disagree, especially when you set interest rates up like they've been set up now.

Giving everything to the next generation is morally wrong, and supports indolence. The idea of inheritance being completely taxed away is, as it always will be, a good idea. One should work for what they get in this life, as opposed to being handed everything on a silver platter because of where they are from, or who they are.

saving half your income is equally unlikely.

that's why the people that manage to do it are almost all lawyers, doctors, engineers, managers, and business owners.

in real life people don't make that much money and they sure as hell don't save that much. Though I understand it's a common misconception on Veeky Forums where most of the board sponges off their parents.

Nigga you've obviously never taken a real IQ test. Iq tests messure nothing other than the speed and depth of your pattern recognition skills. Researchers have tried fucking everything to eliminate "cultural bias" in the fervent hope that their equality fantasy is real. If your IQ number is only related to your abilitiy to take IQ tests, its pretty fucking bizarre that it is the highest correlated factor when it comes to income, crime, std's, marriage and divorce rates, etc.

Just because I criticise your views doesn't mean you can assume I hold some other view.

That's fine. Eventually evolution will weed out rich people who become lazy in their comfort. There's no need to rush the process with crazy incentive changes that prevent people from wanting to work in the first place.

That is something the Trumps of the world will never ever be able to buy, we are self-made. There is nothing on this planet that feels better than coming from nothing and turning yourself into a wildly successful elite.

I'll never be able to compete.
Being rich isn't only about how much money you make. It's about what you DO with your money. Do you waste your money on vacations to Ibiza and sexy sports cars to impress other materialistic people? Or do you re-invest it all and create an incredible business that wins awards and gives money to charity?

That's right. Interest rates are so low that the possibility of it rising at the rate of itself compounded is so high that the liquidity factor for the interest rate of money will necessitate that the marginal efficiency of capital is very low as well, if not saturated and also that there is way more liquidity than necessary. This means a mismatch of savings to investments which means more savings than investing, which will fix itself only by raising the interest rate, as Janet Yellen did recently. In the meantime, the interest rate rising at this level will discourage long-term investment. Now then, how does one expect to receive greater amounts of money in the future for their hard work at interest rates like these, when bonds and retirement pensions granted in the past have interest rates far above the ones granted now. It's a problem that has no good solution except to cut the problem off before it gets too fast and clean of a cut and the interest rate widens the divide.

You're calling me retarded and you missed the point of the debate. I actually agree with the last sentence of the first line you blithering idiot. I want people to work hard, which is why I'm saying tax the inheritance.

Someone like you who roleplays on the internet is so bound up in their fictional persona that they're deaf to reality.

For the record, I am a business owner. However, most millionaires are not. They draw a salary and work for someone else. Period.

But please keep talking about things you'll never experience or know. I love seeing how far you'll go to defend your lies and roleplaying.

you..you do realize those fuckers aren't happy either right?

anecdotes time:

story #1 - used to tutor a son of a very rich plastic surgeon. at age of 15 he had a $100,000 wardrobe, bought whatever he wanted, spoiled as fuck. He was deeply troubled, neglected by his parents, acted out like a motherfucker, and was pretty ugly. He clinged to me like the big bro he never had.

Story #2 - Dated a girl who was a millionaire. Like million dollars straight cash in her bank account, with 500K worth of clothes and bags, a $120K car, etc. Went to school for "fun", didn't work, didn't do shit. She also attempted suicide, was basically bipolar, major abandonment issues.

Being rich doesn't mean shit. Don't buy into the bullshit.

"Yeah but man, they just are fucking idiots. If I had that money, I'd use it properly and be happy."

Yeah good for you but protip:
1. If you never earned it you wouldn't have that mentality to pull that off
2. Even with your mentality try holding onto it for 10 years and seeing how you feel. Especially if you "upgrade" your social circle.

tldr: OP is a huge fag

"Of those who are self-made millionaires the study revealed their top sources of assets included investments/capital appreciation, compensation and employee stock options/profit sharing. Those who were BORN WEALTHY were more likely to cite inheritance, ENTREPRENEURSHIP and real estate investment appreciation as an asset source." (emphasis added)

Let's recap:

1. investments/capital appreciation

2. compensation

3. employee stock options/profit sharing

Just like I fucking said. Notice that business ownership (entrepreneurship) is NOT listed for self-made millionaires.

Jesus man, what's it like to be proven wrong in every thread you join? I mean, you may honestly be the dumbest person on the board. Seriously.

Thanks again for the laughs, janitor boy. You never fail to deliver. See you next time.

I can't remember the quote by Andrew Carnegie so I'll paraphrase. He said
don't leave inheritance to your children because they will grow up lazy and throw it away. However don't give your money to the government because they too, will throw it all away. Instead, use your wealth the way you see fit, to benefit society and to help others.

Look at what he did, he built Carnegie hall, he built a fuck ton of libraries. He built colleges for people to attend. He may have fucked over a lot of people but he still helped more people than any of the other industrialists. Fucking Rockefeller just said no one can have it.
Ok but that just proves my point. His dad wasn't gonna just tell him fuck you. He gave him the tools to succeed and he did. You can say all you want about him but he was smart enough to make the app with his friends and he was smart enough to get to grow so large that it's about to be listed on the NYSE with a $25 billion enterprise value.

are you pretending ownership isn't investment/capital appreciation?
Um, dumbass, the survey made a clear distinction between entrepreneurship, on the one hand, and investment/capital appreciation, on the other hand. So obviously by investment/capital appreciation we're talking about stock market and other equity-type passive investments, not business ownership.

equity of course being ownership....
Holy fucking shit. This brain-damaged poorfag thinks buying a share of stock makes him a business owner!

Fuck, your stupidity really does have no bounds.

Nice try changing the goalposts, retard. Right out of the "Retard 101" playbook: when you've lost an argument, try changing the definitions of words.

Stick to picking up garbage, cuck. You once again prove that you know NOTHING about business or finance.

but there are no goal posts. There's nothing to win.

you being too stupid to understand fact doesn't change that fact.

About two-thirds of us who are working are self-employed. Interestingly, self-employed people make up less than 20 percent of the workers in America but account for two-thirds of the millionaires. Also, three out of four of us who are self-employed consider ourselves to be entrepreneurs. Most of the others are self-employed professionals, such as doctors and accountants.

Its worse when your family has money but they do nothing with it. My parents were making $150k a year but we didnt even have cable. Literally fucking stuck watching pbs & PAX TV on antenna. Eat out less than 5 times a year, no vacation, didnt attend any festivals, shitty cult like church group.

Its one thing to not spoil your kids but just a whole other to not give them anything. My parents are like two loners who just got together because its what society expects of people and had kids. My father played sports in high school & college but he never introduced us to a single sport. Never tried to get us into an instrument or karate and shit. It was like living with roommates who just lived in a different room of the house and met when dinner was served.

Fuck that shit, I wont spoil my kids or anything but I will tlak to them and know them. I dont even know what my parents likes to eat, be it a meal or fruit. What their favorite color is, favorite drink, music artists, etc. Its sad, I feel like I wouldnt even cry if they died.

I didn't ASK for this. That's the thing, I think I'm a piece of shit as much as you do. But what the fuck am I supposed to do about it?

Anyway, not being well off is an opportunity in itself. You're more mature than I am. I am useless and I'm probably going to stay useless my whole life. People get mad when I say I want to be more poor, but I swear to you any anger you feel over how naive I am I also feel back about you.

But I make $120k, which is a bit over $90k after tax, and I save more than $50k while living quite extravagantly -- apartment downtown in an artsy city overlooking a creek, go out multiple times a week, etc. I'm on track to be a millionaire in about a decade.

They didnt really spend much money(1 car, lived in apartments), my mom got some jewelry here & there but that nothing too expensive. Most expensive mightve been food as we were a family of 5. I dont know but I think they give money to relatives and friends or something because I dont ever remember them buying or investing in anything. I remember when they gave around $10-12 grand for an wing addition to the church. My aunts and uncles kids would need money and theyd send $500-750 to them.

Free time? Lol, they literally do nothing but sit at home. Before theyd go out and rent a tv show/movie from the library and theyd pick the most god awful movie. I mentioned PAX TV above, literally sappy stuff like touched by an angel, chicken soup for the soul kinda BS. It was so boring that I was entertained by shows like the price is right, shop till you drop, supermarket sweepstakes, destination stardom.

They just sit at home and do nothing, they do some stuff at church but they dont hang out with anyone or go to parties or have people over for a party. Theyre loners and if they didnt have each other and one of them died no one would notice & none of us kids would even bother to call and check up on them.

Thank god we are all well settled, I dont know what theyve done with their money but im putting their ass in a nursing home somewhere. Dont want one to die and the other to live on their own and die one day and no one checks on them in months. Bodies are getting cremated and buried in my grandparents town.

You can live very well on little money. Your parents are living shitty lives regardless of wealth, the way to be happier is not to become a hedonist. They sound kinda old, I'll bet you get a nice inheritance when you're still reasonably young which you can put in the S&P and stop working forever.

Meanwhile, go hiking or swimming or camping or explore your city, these things are free, go to libraries or dance classes or protests or volunteer, these things are mostly also free.

You can hang out at coffee shops or bars or pool halls, these things cost money but it's hard to spend more than a couple thousand bucks a year doing this.

What kills you is buying expensive clothes, financing furniture or cars or computers, drinking $15 cocktails every night, doing cocaine, etc.

Their parents worked hard, so they should be able to give their kids whatever they want.

HOWEVER

The worst version of this is parents who buy their dumbass kids a business to run. Goddamn, especially any culinary related. I know someone like this. Doesn't know how to price food. Worked a couple years as a cook, but since his parents bought the place he's now "chef". He only works like 30 hours a week. His sous chef is basically the chef and does all the pricing, ordering, and menu design.

I think the reason this pisses me off is
1. This guy needs to work hard and earn the chef title.
2. He is running the business into the ground, when he has every advantage. They broke even their first year, but due to his apathy, standards are sliding and customers are leaving.

when I was working as a shitty line cook at a reputable small burger place, some indiancuck bought the place for 30k over market value and ran the place into the ground. He bought the place with no understanding of the menu or demographic and used his dad's money because he was told to run any business he chose.

We had a staff of 14 people and 9 of them have been there for nearly 5years+ then in one year we all ended up quitting.

Was supposed to be for college money, but being a dumbfuck, I spent it on a beater car and sold it a month later and lost $500.

I'd probably buy the most retarded shit and blow it all in less than 3 months.

What i'm saying is, these rich kids are spending money left and right because it's not theirs.
When they actually earn the money they make, they'll understand.

They're about to buy a million dollar house, her dad graduated from yale, has a PhD in medicine and a master's in business and law.
Her dad pays for her living expenses (over 1k a month), and gives her a monthly allowance (500 a month), and even gave her her own "growth account" which is just a savings account for college.

See the thing is it depends on expenses too. My brother is working and living at home.He graduated from CS 2 years ago. He will be making 85K this year and saving 40-50K working 45 hrs a week.

Now most motivated and educated people can make 60-70K+/yr. The trick is to live with your parents.

When I graduate I'll be working for the family business making 25% of profits. That's roughly 90K this year (much less if a recession strikes), however if we grow the business I can pockets 100-150K easily. Now I will have no expenses and likely have a 1M portfolio before I'm 30.

It's not impossible if your parents support you.

The reason people go into wageslavery is because they live on their own, have wives, and kids and expenses add up fast.

Rich people, while they live better than the average person don't waste much of their overall wealth.

Middle class people are a product of weak family structure.

Yeah it sucks but there is a silver lining to it. I feel I'm being by at least two years in life, lacking certain material things like a car was a huge hit to my confidence so I missed opportunities to get more friends and some really nice girls. On the bright side, I noticed I can recognize opportunities to make money more easily, and lately I understood why. People who've been handed shit aren't gonna bust their ass to make an additional $50-$500 a month, for them its "nothing", they're blind to those niches. I'm finally in a position where I can equalize to them and exceed them over time. As for going to clubs and shit - going 20 times is the same as going 200 times.

I'm priced out and some dipshit becomes my new boss... I quit... now unemployed.
