How much money do you think you need to be considered “rich”? Most Americans define ‘rich’ as anyone that makes more money than they do. Really? That’s actually pretty funny. I define it like this:
Have you heard of D.B. Cooper?
In 1971 the guy hijacked a plane, demanded a HUGE sum of money ($200,000 grand!), got the ransom paid and once he had the money in hand the plane he’d hijacked took off and somewhere between Seattle and Portland ol’ Coop strapped on a parachute and flew the coop, never to been seen or heard from again.
A few months ago my old van finally bit the dust. I’d paid cash for it several years earlier and the van had been a reliable and a fairly efficient form of transportation, as far as cars go. But as the miles added up, so did the maintenance and repairs till it go to the point where I couldn’t justify putting more money into keeping the van on the road. Losing my second car was the perfect excuse to give public transportation a try.
Spend less money than you make. No kidding, right? The idea is so simple that it’s actually funny that it needs to be said at all.
