thats funny i just read that before reading your post … sounds like someone needs a 2×4 to the face. To answer your question … 3 lines.

Nbeener – that was the (first) one that got me too. Speaking of people who don’t understand…...they don’t seem to understand it’s not the MONEY that’s causing the stress, it’s the fact that they’re spending every penny they have & not saving for those….....errrmm…worst case scenarios….where he only gets a $100k bonus.

ARE YOU F@#$%^&G KIDDING ME?!!? DONT UNDERSTAND? REALLY? OH WAAAA, I CANT AFFORD TO SHOFAR MY LITTLE GUY TO SCHOOL WITH HIS SOLID GOLD PLATED PHONE IN MY BENTLEY. I AM GETTING MORE AGGRAVATED JUST REMEMBERING THE ARTICLE WHILE I AM TYPING THIS. I sometimes get bonuses from my job, but first its deserved bonuses that brought substantial growth to my company, needless to say in one week I might have taken 5 or 6 flights to several different states, slept in a new hotel every night away from my family for an extra few dollars at the end of the quarter, and that’s provided i accomplish what my task was. Don’t understand stress? WHAT??!? Thats what we live with, talking stress, can I make the mortgage this month? Will I be able to feed my family this week,do I have enough to buy my child a happy meal at Mcdonalds if she asks for it every other month or so? the answer to all of these is I DONT KNOW?

Don’t get me wrong I have everything pretty good, but I busted my hump to make it happen and continue to do so, and I am not rich, I drove around with bald tires like I was back in High School, because our daughter wanted to go to Disneyland last year after 3 years of asking we scrimped and saved and sacraficed enough to make it happen.

I cant go on, I keep thinking of the article, I’d better take a walk before I punch something or someone. To answer you question, right at about:

Paid a lower bonus, he said the $350,000 he earns, enough to put him in the country’s top 1 percent by income, doesn’t cover his family’s private-school tuition PRIVATE SCHOOL TUITION, THIS GUY NEEDS A TIGHTBOND III WOOD GLUE ENEMA!

Breaks my friggin heart.
Try working for a bunch of A Hole Belgium dopes for 30 years then have to spend your retirement savings to live on when they dump you at the age of 60 and replace you with 3 retards. I’ll show you some GD stress.

WAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. These people don’t have a clue what the real world is like. I hope the whole damn bunch goes broke and have to work as a laborer on a construction job. Real honest to goodness labor that they don’t understand. Then and only then will they have an education.

with the additional clause that after busting their asses off for a fortnight they find the office cabin all closed up, with no foreman and no wage packets – which has happened to people I know.

And that ladies and gentlemen is only the tip of the iceberg. I bet that none of the people ever had to say should we eat or pay the mortgage or buy gas to get to work or medication so I can work?

On a similar note in a recent study done a University of California Berkeley, people in that bracket tend to be rude, break rules, and show greed tendencies. This study was reported in the San Jose Mercury News today. One of the defending arguments was that this applied more to people who were born into wealth.

Nature loves cycles and I hope this “class cycle” starts turning around soon otherwise the middle class will cease to exist and we will be like a lot of third world countries with a very small very rich class and large poor class!
