Let’s just say sympathy is in short supply.
In a clear example of extreme American consumerism, one profligate man, using the online handle Slavikfill, claimed to be seeking tips on how to stretch his household income of $500,000 a year when he posted his budget on Reddit.
“My wife and I are in our early thirties. We live in Kansas. I’m a CTO of well known startup, and she’s a model,” he wrote. “As you can see, each year we have a large deficit. Currently, we add that to our mortgage each year. We’ve been doing this for 2 years. I’d appreciate any advice on how to reign our situation in.”
