Full Disclosure: I’m still genuinely angry with Daimler over the Chrysler debacle. However, Zetsche is the single person from that organization that I do not blame.
Keep promoting the hell out of those early 80s Imperials. You’re only doing me a favor.
For everyone else? Yes!
“And by the way, I put myself through community college WHILE I was working 40 hours a week.”
I didn’t say that I don’t want to retire. You’re mincing my words to be difficult. You’ll get no more responses from me.
We tried, but we had our car keys taken away and were grounded for life.
We’re not tired in the sense that we’re ready to retire. We’re tired of trying to deal with the boomer bullshit for the last 50 years.
Don’t worry... as boomers die off then so will the need for poorly-built McMansions of the suburban deserts. That’s when you’ll make your move. God speed.
No. After she moved secured the new mortgage and moved into the new house, she let the other one fall into foreclosure. They’ve since changed the laws, because of this cavalier attitude used during the meltdown, to hold mortgage-holders financially responsible if they have no honest financial excuse for letting a home…
I can’t argue that. Not one bit.
Agreed. There were also those that were still working, but decided that being upside down on their mortgage was not fair, purchased a bigger house for cheaper, and then walked away from their previous home. I actually know a person (she’s an asshole for other unrelated reasons) that did this.
You and I are 100% on the same page. My retirement plan is to either hope that I also die without being a financial burden to my wife and kids or “semi-retire” by trying to pay off my little house and work part-time to live, enjoy life, and pay my property tax. Hopefully I love long enough to collect SS and possibly…
Donald Trump is the epitome of old white people trying to fight back against progressive change. It’s the last gasp of air.
Most of the ones guilty for causing the crash were speculators. They bought up real estate with as much leverage as they could, thus driving up market values for those that just wanted to buy a fucking house to live in. When the storm hit, they casually dumped their “investments” and walked away. Also, anyone who lost…
Your whole “whatever the fuck” attitude is the very epitome Gen X (haha)
Truthfully, my parents retired 20 years ago. In general though, I’ve been fighting the boomer brick wall my whole adult life in the working world. I’ve had my issues with that generation since the mid-90s. I’m just glad that the younger generations also see this shit.
It probably depends on the source of the info too. I think it states different years in different places, but it seems like the mid-80s is always the point where it can be one or the other.
I fucking love cars. I’ve loved cars more than I loved anything else for as long as I can remember. I’ve never been diagnosed, but it could possibly be considered a disorder of some kind. I’m a Gen X-er...
As a Gen X-er, you’re wrong. We got fucked by the boomers in every way imaginable. We’re tired. Our parents still won’t fucking retire and are still telling us how to vote. We get told we’re stupid for wasting our money on shit that they would never buy or don’t understand. They told us that “you can never lose on…
They’ll search for a way to pay drivers even less or possibly even enslave them while still making them pay for their own car and insurance.
