It's not about whether you could live on it, it's whether you'd be happy settling on that for the rest of your life. At least that's what I thought.

50k is a good wage and would make a very comfortable life. Just some people would like to earn more to enjoy some of the nicer things in life.

R is obviously trolling, he can't be like this in real life. Obviously 50 k is a shit wage to retire on, but you have to be a right square to aspire to earn more money to put your kids in private school, support a wife, and not have to use public transport in London. Those things are not aspirations, just part of your own private strange bubble.

50k isn't a great wage to pay rent out of and save for a mortgage but is manageable unless your a weirdo who is afraid of public transport.

Mindset of working just for £ and constantly wanting more (that R seemingly has) will mean you are never satisfied, there is always another thing to buy/pay for. Especially when competing with crass friends about earning/spending.

When your 45 and MTG'd through the roof and have some sort of hicup and your wife leavs you (cos she will be a similar cunt except without actually working) you might feel a smidgen of remorse…

We all buy into the illusion that money = happiness (e.g. buying expensive clothes etc) but just some far more than others.

Rs been brainwashed (among many other of his peers) to think like this from an early age, no point trying to argue or offer an alternative.

you know this.

Problem is people who buy in to this sub set have very little self awareness and distorted perception. They have the same low level of self awareness as the people watching x factor, happy on 12 grand a year and takeaway dinners. Only difference is where R aspires to meet a nice bird he can relieve from her working obligations to define his happiness, the aspiration @ the other end of the bubble is to be a celebrity. Equally fucked up @ either end of the spectrum.

I would actually argue that the cunts aspiring for privately educated kids, defining themselves amongst friends by titles of agency, and hoping to never have to use an oyster are the worst of the worse.

it's not a class issue, it's just that type of person who always wants more and defines there reality by earnings and wants are so boring. There is often nothing to these type of people. I am utterly drained when talking to these people. They are normally the type of people you meet in forced social settings who have nothing interesting to say and nothing to them.
