Default you know what I would do if I was rich?

Quote:
Peter Gibbons: Nothing.
Lawrence: Nothing, huh?
Peter Gibbons: I would relax... I would sit on my ass all day... I would do nothing.


anyone else ever feel like that?


people need to stop pretending money doesn't equal happiness...yes it f*cking does...lol

rich people are happy...obviously there are exceptions but I am quite positive the average rich guy that doesn't have to get up for work every day is happier than the average middle class man...


do the bills ever stop?

-house
-car
-house insurance
-car insurance
-home owners dues
-cell phone
-home phone
-internet
-gas
-credit cards
-electricity
-ect

it never f*cking ends...pay one here comes another...

THEN, if you are single the everyday crap tasks of laundry, dishes, cleaning in general just get to the point that I give up...maids are worth every penny but that is yet ANOTHER bill...almost worth listening to a woman's yapping just to have someone to do all that BS for me...

I am sick of everyday..."SHIT"...just want to sit around and play video games all day and watch sports...that's it...

Actually studies have shown that as long as you make a decent salary (60-70,000 ish), you're paying the bills and aren't in debt, you are equally as happy as the guy who makes 10 mil a year.

I'm the laziest guy out there but this right here get's old real fast. From the age of 17-19 I've basically done nothing. Dropped outta school. Unemployed. I basically did nothing besides sit on my ass and do whatever I wanted. Life without purpose get's boring real quick. I'm still doing it right and like losing my mind

I agree money probably helps awhole of alot. I'd settle for being comfortable tho.

You'd probably end up doing the one or two things you really love. For me I'd probably start my own racing company and compete professionally.

That's a straight up lie . Money can't buy happiness but it can sure as hell make a big impact on it.

Yea I am kind of your side with this pt, having $$ to do whatever you want and never have to worry about a single bill month to month is HUGE. Peace of mind is the biggest part. The whole "money can't buy happiness" seems like a phrase made up so poor to middle class folk don't have to feel like shyt bc they are not balling. Obv. it can't buy all your happiness, but being able to support you and your fam goes a long way into ones happiness.

Ya dude. It was awesome for a year. Than everyone passes you by. You have no purpose. Still great at times but most of the time you hate it. Even if your loaded as **** you still need some kinda purpose.

Prime tell me you wouldn't spend the majority of your time pining over your Mercedes collection. 'Cause I'd just sit in my F40 for hours for no reason just smiling.

Default Re: you know what I would do if I was rich?

I would pay off all my parents loans and give them like half my money, invest money into schools that actually help kids succeed rather than set them up for failure. Hook up all my friends. Invest in land and start a self sustained household. So I could keep busy and get a good workout while providing for myself and whoever lives with me, instead of sitting on my ass wasting away. But yea, too damn broke...

If I were a rich man I would do two things:

-Buy the internet and shut it down.
-Buy a giant squid and have it suck my dick.
