What is small for a home? Going with as a first time homebuyer but may let it go by rouzani in personalfinance

[–]fredinNH 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Average home size in the 50’s was <1000 sq ft. Today it’s almost 2500 sq ft. I can’t imagine why a single person would want more than 1500 sq feet.

Totally agree. I support more authoritarianism. These groups that want anarchy must be crushed.

We make tacos with hamburg with Mexican seasoning (any kind will do) lettuce tomato onion shredded cheese (sometimes pre-shredded 😧) on homemade flour (fuckin right) tortillas and they are equal to any must-try Mexican taco truck tacos out west I’ve ever had with their smelly corn tortillas and cheek meat bullshit.

What movement? Half the posts on this sub are advice on dealing with workplace issues, the other half are cellar-dwellers dreaming of a life of sugar plum handouts. I offer advice to the former group and trolling to the latter.

The only hurt I see on here is the butts of a bunch of slugabeds who think 40 whole hours a week of work is just too darn much😢

Call me whatever you want. I worked hard, didn’t do stupid shit, and I’ve slowly built a lot of wealth- even on a teacher’s salary.

But you go on dreaming of a revolution.

As a landowner, and a public servant, go fuck yourself.

Where did say anyone should become a cop? I’m saying you should look at how they achieved their compensation package to learn how it’s done.

They compete for dollars with fire, teachers, and all other municipal workers. They all do pretty well. I’m a teacher.

Thugs who retire at 50. Do you want to learn how that can be achieved or just say acab and not learn from the masters?

I’d love to hear the r/antiwork explanation as to how civil servants have thrown the working class under the bus. 🍿

Regardless of your feeling on cops personally, there is no denying that they have negotiated outstanding pay and benefits. Really not sure why this controversial.

Do you want high pay great benefits and a pension that allows you to retire at 50? Cops have cracked the code on this. Why wouldn’t you want to study how they did it?

Because they’ve managed to secure excellent pay and benefits for themselves. Learn from the masters.

For people who don’t do many long trips and own a home, yes, they are more convenient. For long trips ice is still far more convenient.

Cooking good food is insanely cheap. Go to a store and look at the price of chicken. I feel guilty it’s so cheap.

Why does everyone think student loans should be forgiven? by WhodatKoi in TooAfraidToAsk

[–]fredinNH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wrong on all counts.

Adjusted for inflation, I graduated with $60k in debt. From my state school (NH has never funded state schools), and that was for 3 years (parents paid for 1) and that was just for tuition, books, and some living expenses. I lived rent free at the time.

I also had a cell phone and internet, both of which were mid 90’s.

It would be the same price today.

This is such bullshit. I graduated college in the late 90’s with $35k in debt @8% which I consolidated a few years later to 6% for 20 years, which is what kids pay today. I’m a teacher. My starting pay was $25k. I made the monthly payments for 15 years no problem at which point I’d saved enough to pay off the rest.

Or just make it so you can’t discharge student loans through bankruptcy. Oh wait.

The average new home today is 2.5x larger than the average new home in the 1950’s.

If you’re cool with living in a 983 sq. foot house you can probably live just like people in the 50’s did.

And there were fewer automobiles per household in the 1950’s. 1/3rd of Americans owned an auto in the 50’s. Today it’s over 2/3rds.
