I'm a bit behind in this thread, so sorry if this OhaW story doesn't contribute to whatever the hell the current foam is.
I was hanging around playing poker with my boss and some co-workers before a training exercise one evening. The discussion turned somehow turned into my boss razzing me about being such a cheapass for some of my behaviors (biking to work, older phone with no data, I drive an old car, all this even though my wife and I are DINKS, etc).
"You probably have a massive pile of cash or something."
I didn't want to sound like a dick and just confirm as it was all in good fun, so I said, "Nah, I just blow it all on hookers and, of course, my massive gambling addiction."
Fast forward to some time later, I was sitting around with said boss and some of the same co-workers. This was during one of those times where the lottery was massive so everyone was playing (except for me... tightass). To the one, they were all in agreement that if they won, they would immediately quit and walk out the door. They came to the conclusion that $1MM would be enough. I was the brunt of the joke that I would be the only one left running the office because I hadn't participated in the lottery with them (they went in together with the intent of sharing the winnings if anyone won).
I smiled to myself because, at the time, our stash was just shy of the magical $1MM they were throwing around as the freedom floor.
It was all in jest because we all had a good working relationship, but a bit sad that they knew the solution to freedom but basically wouldn't degrade themselves with not having the latest, shiniest stuff. Oh well, all you can do is lead by example and let the chips fall where they may. We all have our priorities.
