Felt uncomfortable today


#1

My parents have been away since Thursday. Haven’t spoke to anyone since then so I went out to the pub for a soft drink.

I bought my drink but the barman made a joke about all my money. He was joking and not joking at the same time. Really upset me. Won’t be going back in again


#2

He said “all your money” for the drink? I would just laugh it off. I wasn’t there though.


#3

What joke about money?


#4

I’ll show you a trick about money. Take what you get monthly and multiply that by 12. That’s what you make a year. Then take that amount and multiply it by 33. That’s what your income is worth if you had the lump sum in the bank. It’s probably not that bad :slight_smile:


#5

What’s so magical about the number 33?


#6

It’s based off of earning 3% / year on your money which is what you might get in treasuries. It’s a approximation if an annuity valuation


#7

I had asked if the pub was busy over the weekend. He says no, not everyone has your money. I literally spend like £6 a week in that place. But he thinks I get loads of ‘free money’.


#8

I rather have people think I’m rich than I’m broke lol


#9

People need to mind their own business.


#10

I’m sorry he said that. I know that’s the thing you’re most worried about whenever you go in. You have a right to a soft drink once in a while, and social interaction is a human necessity.


#11

So why do you tell people you get money from the government? All that does is make everyone mad and jealous. Keep it secret.
