Well... I just got a doozy. My co-worker, who is my supervisor, just said told me how broke he was. I know that he makes at lease 80K a year. Anyways to the point of my story.
Him and his girlfriend just bought their third house. They are both in there mid 50's and have been married a few times, so marriage is not in the future for them. Anyways they just bought the third house, which would be great, if they rented two, but he lives in his house, she and hers, while the spend money to revovate the new house so they can move in, which he has stated will cost about 150000, and he paid over 500000 for this house, because it has his dream garage.
He is leaving on holidays to sturgus for the bike convention. So he had to spend $6000 getting his $35000 Harley tricked out for the trip, so it looks good, because he just doesnt have enought time to do it(he is a mechinical engineer, so the work would have been something he is capable of).
We were talking this morning in the coffee room, and he casuly mentioned(this actually blew my mind a little) that him and his girl have to buy a new vehicle like a $50000 lexus becuase the driveway at their new house is steep and they may have issues driving the 2013 4x4 for explorer up the drive way... WTF HUH??
During the conversation on the explorer he explained that none of the other 12 cars they had between the two of them would work(12 cars two people what). He also mentioned that the "spare" tire inventory for the cars was 34 tires. He was also saying that maybe they should bite the bullett and but a Corvette annivery edition... he found one with less then 50000km for only 125000...
He then complains that he cant figure out why he is so broke, or where all his money is going.... he just stuck his head in my office and asked if I wanted to go for breakfast this morning...OMG.
