For what those things cost I'm surprised you can still afford to keep the dog! :rotf:
Around here where I live lots of people moved to Michigan and worked for Ford. now they've moved home, retired. They live on a union pension from 55 till death. When they hit 65 they go buy a new Ford truck and SS pays for it!

Hiring a millennial.....

Heard on the radio the other day. They said this is how much the average college student expects to earn when they graduate. Were looking for callers to guess. I told wife unit $100k. She scoffed but that was the actual real answer. Today’s college graduates are COMPLETELY out of touch with reality.

Isn't SS money they took from your paycheck in order to distribute back to you in your golden years when you're no longer working and need it?

So it's your money in the first place, just going thru their rigamarole.

I understand the economic switch they pulled re this, but the intent was, and it was sold as above.

House should be paid off in a few months with MY money...not with interest but with inflation.

Unfortunately yours and everyone elses house can never be paid off as long as the real estate taxes are due every year

Oh, I do not have a problem with what they are doing. Heck I'm collecting a pension and SS too!

Lucky.

$1500 is what I pay per quarter to get the privilege to stay in my house.
Mine's pushing about 9 grand a year and it goes up about 500/year. No town services except for snow plowing. Most of the RE tax rate is documented to be for 'education'!

Taxation is theft! RE taxation is criminal theft! All bullshit!

Another Moldy oldy...

Irish Blonde...
An attractive blonde from Cork, Ireland, arrived at the casino. She seemed a little intoxicated and bet twenty thousand dollars in a single roll of the dice.
She said, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely nude."
With that, she stripped from the neck down, rolled the dice and with an Irish brogue yelled, "Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!"
As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up and down and squealed. "Yes! Yes! I won, I won!" She hugged each of the dealers, picked up her winnings and her clothes and quickly departed.
The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded.
Finally, one of them asked, "What did she roll?"
The other answered, "I don't know – I thought you were watching."
MORAL OF THE STORY
Not all Irish are drunks, not all blondes are dumb,
..... but all men...are men!

Water, trash and sewer is about $95 a month. Association fees $57 per quarter which cleans and clears trees and flowers around perimeter and has the drive by nazis looking for weeds.
