He saw Blazing Saddles for the first time about 2 weeks ago,and still cracks up over it.

I haven't been able to offend him yet

You're an idiot.

Fuck voluntary OT after the age 30. Young, starting out, getting finances in order- sure, go for it. Around 30-ish you should be done with that shit (voluntary, obviously small business owner and others are exempt). If you're 35-40-45-50 and need excessive OT to stay ahead you should downsize your belongings.

Long term, your family is better off having you around and living middle class vs. hardly ever seeing you and living upper middle class.

Been there, done that, literally got the t shirt. Fuck this nice house... I'd rather have my time back.

Just my opinion

Oh it did shit to him or maybe his insurance company. Over two grand a month for two 40mg shots. Damn big pharma is literally letting people die because they can’t pay for their meds.

I don't need it to stay ahead, but those guns and bypass shocks aren't going to buy themselves.

Wife and I have 10 acres mostly woods. Been here 5 years now and about got all the previous owners neglect on the outside done. We could afford this because we bought the least expensive house in an affluent area and went completely through it. She sided and roofed the house with me! I finished the downstairs out and remodeled the bathrooms. Sold it for a nice profit and bought this place. Only 1100 sqft now but if things go right we start the addition next spring. Building it ourselves with a small bit of help from friends when needed. Although it may have to wait a year if we end up buying another adjacent property. Would be nice if she didn’t have to live in another construction zone.

What's it like living your whole life working for the man?

I havent worked OT my entire life. Put in more than 40 hours "working", sure. Getting time and a half per hour... I cant recall.

It sucked as a kid got great in my teens and 20’s even early 30, women love to act like sluts and take their clothes off for my birthday. . Now in my 40’s with kids its just Halloween.

Same here. When my kids were little I worked as much OT as I could. Wife took the kids to all their activities while I worked. Saturday after Thanksgiving I had the day off and my kids were on a bowling league. I went to watch. My youngest daugther (maybe 7 at the time) rolled a good ball and ran up to some other guy to get a high 5. It really got to me watching my kid run to some other guy for accolades. I went home and told the wife that if it costs me my job, I was done working overtime. That was over 30 years ago and I bet I haven't worked 10 Saturdays since then. No regrets - you can't get the time back.

Turn 67 next month. My doctor(s) are amazed at how healthy and active I am. One thing I've noticed since I retired is I'm busier now than when I was working. How the hell did that happen ?

Have recently heard that from to retired friends. They both asked how they ever had the time to work.

Comes to mind my 2 Army Infantry nephews need to live long enough to spend my money.


"A study shows that Millennial's will hold five times as much wealth as they have today and the group is anticipated to inherit over $68 trillion from their Baby Boomer parents by the year 2030. This will represent one of the greatest wealth transfers in the modern times"

https://www.forbes.com/sites/jackkel.../#4df381f66c4b







A study shows that Millennials will hold five times as much wealth as they have today and the group is anticipated to inherit over $68 trillion from their Baby Boomer parents by the year 2030. This will represent one of the greatest wealth transfers in the modern times.

Post-Boomer generations have had to wrestle with issues not encountered by their parents and grandparents. Burdensome college debt that serves as a financial anchor, costly real estate, the high cost of insurance and the challenge of procuring well-paying jobs have all been anathema to Millennials. These and other issues have made their lives more difficult than their parents' generation. Their fortunes will soon dramatically change for the better. They stand the chance to become one of the richest groups ever.

There are approximately 618,000 Millennial millionaires, according to WealthEngine data, as part of a study compiled by real estate firm Coldwell Banker. Millennial millionaires make up approximately 2% of the total U.S. millionaire population. The majority of Millennial millionaires have a net worth that ranges from $1 million to $2.49 million and fall between the ages of 34 and 37. Due to inheritances, trusts and estate planning, there will be a steady flow of Millennials getting very rich soon. Since the Millennial generation is smaller than the Boomers they're inheriting from, the wealth handed down will be highly concentrated. Ironically, this could contribute to increasing wealth inequality.

Today In: Leadership
The Baby Boomer parents possess a massive amount of wealth. Many of them were beneficiaries of a great economy, which offered plenty of safe and well-paying jobs. Baby Boomers also benefited from a meteoric rise in the stock market and substantial gains in real estate. The values of their homes have risen exponentially over the years.

"The difference between the millionaires of the early 1980s and the ones being created today is that many of them stand to inherit even more wealth from their Baby Boomer parents, who are considered the wealthiest generation in history," the Coldwell Banker report concluded.


Be Competitive At Work (You’ll Be A Better Team Player)
It won't be smooth sailing for both generations. There has been tremendous growth in the value of stocks, bonds and real estate over the years. Job security and career advancement has been on an upward trajectory for the Boomers. This doesn’t mean that the trend will last forever. There will most likely be a correction or recession in the future, as it's a usual part of the market cycle. With anxiety over outliving their wealth, Boomers may elect to stay longer at their jobs and hold onto to their money rather than giving it to their children while they’re still alive.

Advancements in technology, artificial intelligence, robotics, intense global competition and relocating jobs to other countries may adversely impact job security and the upward mobility of Boomers. This may lessen the amount of money that will be handed over to their children. Also, the devastatingly high costs associated with late-in-life health issues could easily wipe out a Boomer’s accumulated wealth fairly quickly. Taxes—varying from state to state—could take a big bite out the inheritance. The recipients of the money will have to worry about how to manage the inheritance, which is not so easy. Coming into a lot of money is nice, but managing it is hard, complicated and risky.

This unprecedented hand-off of incredible wealth from one generation to another will substantially change the lives and fortunes of many Millennials. It will also have major ripple effects through the economy.

I still work plenty of overtime, I have no cable tv. I am sure I spend way more time living than most of the people I know. Hell we would hit the lake 3 times a week when the kids were young wake boarding. Camped out and wheeled all over the country with my kids. I see most people that work less just do less. My wife was always home with the kids and it made a huge impact on our family. But to each their own. And I live in a Jim Walter home that has been paid for for years.

Read it again for your benefit. Nothing wrong with using a word with a broad brush...

Then you changed the rules right away??


Look in the mirror, you getting old, you're no competition!! I don't have a legend prescription or under a Dr's care. And no sticker/tag/plates that allow me to park in the coveted "cripple' space.

Take your yoga break already

FWIW, my post wasn't really directed at you... to be honest I've been sick this week and that + work has got me in full on douchebag mode.

Turning 45 in about month.

Just had a hernia operation the other day. (first over night hospital stay and procedure ever)

Stepped on the scale, I'm pushing 321 lbs.

Fucking wow. Didn't pay much attention. Gotta get on top of this lifestyle, before, I wonder what happened to my health.
