$$$$$$$!!!!! MONEY MATTERS, ADJUSTMENTS, BUCK, BUMMER!, Uncategorized

WHAT WOULD I DO WITH $1,000,000?

I know!

You would say something like?

I would quit my job, travel the world, pay my bills and become “debt free”, invest, save, buy a new car the list is ever so endless!

But! If you think. Life for us would be better? Think again!

I know millionaires! Who squander their riches!

I still believe! We! Or us poor folk! Have it better than they do!

I knew a rich family that! before the husband died. His wife was very nice, kind to me. After he died! She (How you say?) practiced  “economics”! Tighter than tight! with the money!

I think it’s the?

Upbringing, educational background, finding a job/career that pays well, the right place, raising a family, etc..

Upbringing! Let’s face it! Our parents do not really know. The how to’s! In raising kids. So! what do they do? “Carbon copy” what their parents did. Not good. Some parents were brought up in a “violent” families, some were not.

Educational background! It depends on the type/kind/quality of education one gets. Education varies from city to city, Government to Government, teacher to teacher.

Does? any of those things have anything to do with becoming a millionaire? YES! & NO! I believe in a way that! Upbringing does make a difference. It’s the way a child is brought up, How it is raised so on. It does become a factor.

Think about this!

Even if you did win or come into $1,000,000! Keep in mind! The “TAXES!” After the taxes! What do you really have? Not as much as when you started.

A million dollars! Does not cure or solve anything!

DUMPED, STRANGER, LAND,, Uncategorized

HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE YOU WERE “DUMPED” AS A KID?

Granted! we are raised differently. But! there has to be a time/point where! Either you moved from one place. To another. And you felt like more than a “stranger in a foreign land”. The surroundings were different, The area was not quite the way you thought it was to be.

Example! When My parents and my half-sisters and I moved. The whole area we moved to. Was very different! This was at a time when. The playing field was level. The people who lived in the inner-city could move. But did not. These were the “well-to-do families”.

They were nice to me! Better than my parents were! When I got to meet and know some of their kids! That! Was the shape of things to come!

Spoiled brats! In their parent’s eyes! They could do no wrong at all. As long as the parents did not know.

But! I did do something looking back, I should not have done. It was on a Friday. In the wintertime. The snow was about eight inches. The cars were stuck, we kids loved helping the motorists out. Later in the afternoon. One of the people asked us to shovel their driveway for them. We did. When it came to spliting a roll of pennies, I took the money and ran! Because at that time. We were on welfare. And that was the biggest amount of money I ever seen. From that time on. I was the hated kid on the block.

We came from an area where. Everyone was nice, friendly, to you. Not like over there.

When you’re a kid. And your parents have raised abusively! You are left to be raised by yourself! and not knowing it. They expect you to learn and know anything! Everything! ASAP! Impossible!

When I lived in that area. That! Is where I felt dumped!

The Slants Win Supreme Court Battle Over Band’s Name In Trademark Dispute : The Two-Way : NPR

The case could have a broad impact on how the First Amendment is applied in other trademark cases.

Why? Can’t we accept free speech? As it is? “FREE SPEECH?”

The patient office was scared “SHITLESS” about “who do/would we offend?

There is a split! Between free speech and crossing the invisible line of “political correctness”.

This decision will have such implications. There will be many cases of: “what line(s) do we cross?” VS. “who do we offend?”

this will not be the first! Or the last! to come.

NOW! I AM NOT SO SURE!

If I want to get married again!

It’s been three years! Since the split! As some of you may know. The ex and I have divorced. During that time. The conversion was hard. Simply because that is what she wanted me to go through, thinking that I would suffer and cannot make it on my own without her. Little does she know!

But during those three years. I have come to enjoy myself a lot! Being able to do things, buy things and so on. That when I was with them! The ex made extremely sure I did not get or do what I wanted. A few months ago! Not only is she a narcissist! But! An abusive narcissist! In “Drag”! The one thing that kinda stops me in my tracks is just that!

We all! Have our own way of thinking, believing what a relationship is. And that is where we divide. Men think they know! Women think they know!

For me! It does take two to make it work!

It’s just that! From what I went through! It may be years! Before I do decide to find someone.

“I’M IN NO HURRY!”

WHAT IS THE WORST PART ABOUT WORK?

 

When we get our first job!

We all have this mental thought in our minds that! The workplace is this/that. But when that time does come! It’s much worse than a strong cup of coffee!

My first job was at a printing plant. The department “head” was very strict when it came to working. He always said: “less bullshit more work!” As if? He was always on my ass just short of 24/7.

A sold out! Company man! Until the co. Folded!

The employeesVery “narcissistic!”! nice at first! After you are back was turned? Dbl. Daggers at your back.

I am sure in each, and every workplace! There are people who have this thing! About wanting to take control of a department/Company. They just want to prove somehow either to them themselves or others. They have what it takes to be in mgt. Not knowing! Which end is up!

Even at work! As in school! Bullies abound!

I think the I hated work was? The people, the workplace, Company so-called standards & practices. Mostly! The ones who in charge of a department/Company itself. You know them! Any amount of power! They become drunk with power!

I know a “FUCK-UP”! Who still to this day! Is holding a stupid grudge against me for not having a bumper sticker for him! When it was “HIS”! turn!

I also found that bullies! Are “narcissist”!

They also exist all around us!

Even management!

Is life? Not fun??????

THE LIFE & TIMES OF A SEMI-BATCHELOR “THE SEQUEL! “MAYBE?”

So far! I have! Fallen inside my apt.! Had a hip replaced on my right side, broken my right shoulder. Working on my 3rd. year here. Got rid of the bugs that I had when I moved in on my own.

STILL! Married to her! But not for long!

My oldest son. Is still coming over & doing my laundry and having lunch twice a month.

Her! “still!!!!!” the same!

Gender bender! Fmr. my daughter now! An “IT!” still listens to her mom! More the pity!

I find that I am getting hit up! By lovely young women! Y? IDK?

I just started buying new clothes for myself. And on my 3rd. cell phone (long story!).

On the splitz! With my other sister (another long story!).

I find myself going to  “Aldi’s a lot, GFS, Walmart.

On occasion! I do smoke my cigars! No cheapies (plastic holder that come with those “cheap” cigars that young people will buy just to look sophisticated!). or aromatic!

Drink whatever I want!

Buy! whatever I want!

 

When you’re single! You think:”Is this all there is?” Then! You get married! And you start to think:”you know?” “single life was not all that bad after all!” Then separation/divorce comes.

Then! When you’re on your own! YES! My rediscovered freedom is here!

There is no such thing as? “New found freedom!”

You did not lose it! It was there all along!

NOW THE SHIT HITS REALITY!

To those of you who have read “The life & times of a semi-Batchelor (I lost track of how many) You kn0w what I went through with her & them.

As my “half-sister” and I came to an end. The shit did hit the fan. But now! As I went to the grocery store. I began to realize that. The things she purposely deprived me of. I can buy!

To some of you, it may not seem like much. But when you have been deprived by the so-called wife. The things y0u did not get because of her. I can get nowadays.

I know that. People have this thought, feeling that: “I can’t afford to buy this/that”. Right of the bat! Seafood! Brings terror and chills to the very heart of anyone!

Does it really?

Ever since I was a mid-teen. I was one who had this philosophy of”If I want it!” “I’ll get it!” “I have the money to buy it!” “I will do so!” Get the idea?

YES! A time & a place to save/invest.

Why? IDK! But I have been one to not know or realize. What I am doing. Perhaps! I am having too much fun. After what I went through.

Am I happy? It has its moments! Not being with them? As I said! It has its moments!

I would love! To meet someone! At the same time. I can wait! But! For how long? UPDATE:

UPDATE: WHAT REALLY HIT ME WAS? I WAS ABLE TO BUY!

SEAFOOD, CANNED MUSHROOMS, CANNED FRUIT!

THE THINGS Those ORDINARY PEOPLE WOULD NOT BUY! JUST FOR THE SAKE OF”SAVING MONEY!”

WE ARE HERE ON THIS EARTH! TO ENJOY OUR LIFE! NOT! SQUANDER IT!
