He is keeping the GTR at a friends place who has a garage to store the car in. Its just the way people live in the area.
As for me my house is nice, newer and clean but yet I have no furniture, none I cannot afford it. I have my bed and a mirrior that is all.
The cost of all my "toys" when put together far exceeds the price I paid to buy my house.
Make fun all your guys want it's cool I understand how stupid this must sound but it's my life and I've just come here to get opinions/advice and thats what your giving. No harm no foul

TIL Ohio sucks.

Im 27 and do fairly well for myself (all things considered)
I live alone in my own home, small modest 3 bedroom 1 bath house, with 2 HUGE shops/garages out back.
I have a 02 active autowerks supercharged M3, an 02 325ci "m3 clone" and a ford ranger track. Also I have a 250F dirtbike and a 2005 R6 streetbike.

I have no help or assistance from anyone, Like I said above I live alone so unlike most 27 year olds I do not have a second income from a spouse to help me out.
I never went to college only have just a High School diploma and my job is EXTREMELY low end, as in most days after tips I barely break the $7.85 hour minimum wage in ohio.
ANYHOW MY POINT IS:
Most of my friends are approching 30 years old now and most have really begun hitting there stride Financially and me Im really really struggling and losing ground to them monthly it seems. One of my "enemies" from our teenage years just landed a $25 per hour job at Dupont (factory work) 6 months ago, an he just Saturday night picked up a 2009 Black GTR. He also never went to college.\

Most all my friends I've grown up with have a family of there own now and live in $150k.-$200k homes, the ones who are still single and living alone pick up $65k. nissan GTR'S and such.............as for me Im alone, have no life outside of work 45 hours a week, paying monthly bills and mortgage payments, although my credit is outstanding and I've been at my current job for 7 years I am begining to really hate my life and what it has become, and as much as I dearly love my two BMW's and my motorcycle's I always wonder what it is exactly that Im trying to prove by owning them, and to who Im trying to prove it.
I'm out, I gotta work a 12 hour shift tomorrow
If you live in Ohio look for a "Landman" job. Many landmen only have a high school education and you can make very good money. The problem with the business is that you are an independant contractor and the jobs are very day to day. You can be doing great for 6 months or a year or whatever, and one day the job is simply over. It isn't your fault at all its just how the business works.

Take a look at the job bank at landmen.net

you afford all that on $8/hr?

write a book explaining how to do that and you will become rich.

Also your friend that makes $25/hr and is buying a GTR is dumber then a bag of rocks. Strong financial planning.

WASHINGTON, March 8, 2013 – Budget problems have forced the Army and Marine Corps to cancel the tuition assistance program, service officials said today.

Navy and Air Force officials said they are studying the way forward with the program and expect decisions next week.

Thousands of service members take advantage of the tuition assistance program, which allows them to take college courses that prepare them for their jobs in the military or as they transition to the civilian workforce.

However, the current fiscal situation forced service officials to make difficult choices, said Navy Cmdr. Leslie Hull-Ryde, a Pentagon spokeswoman. “Each service is responsible for funding and administering tuition assistance funding,” she said.

The Defense Department’s comptroller issued guidance “indicating that the services should consider significant reductions in funding new tuition assistance applicants, effective immediately and for the duration of the current fiscal situation,” Hull-Ryde added.

Army officials announced today that soldiers will not be permitted to submit new requests for tuition assistance. Soldiers currently enrolled in courses approved for tuition assistance are not affected, and will be allowed to complete those courses, said Lt. Col. Tom Alexander, spokesman for the Army’s personnel chief.

The Army is taking this step because of the combined effects of a possible year-long continuing resolution and sequestration. “The Army understands the impacts of this action and will re-evaluate should the budgetary situation improve,” Alexander said. Soldiers with questions can get answers at their local education centers.

The Marine Corps cancelled its program when across-the-board spending cuts under a “sequestration” mechanism in budget law took effect. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus ordered the Marine Corps to cease new enrollments in the voluntary education tuition assistance program. The Marine Corps falls under the Navy Department.

Mabus said in an all-Navy order that the actions are needed “to preserve support for those forces stationed overseas and currently forward-deployed. Reductions in lower-priority forward operations, and significant reductions in all other operations, training and maintenance are a result of this selection process.”
So it was the Army AND the USMC. Guess it's USAF, Navy, or USCG.

1. Sell most of your "toys" and just get to the point where you have basic transportation. Keep one car or truck, maybe 1 bike, sell the rest.
2. Buy some reasonable furniture for your place. A man approaching 30 shouldn't just have a bed, yet have a garage full of toys.
3. Enroll in a school to up your skills so that you have more career options. You could also ask around for apprenticeships to become a plumber, electrician, etc.
4. Your friend cannot afford the GTR. Instead of letting that get to you, it should make you smile that he's missing meals so that he can be perceived as the "big man" around town...absolutely hilarious.


It is time to get your priorities in better order. I would also consider relocating to a bigger town with more opportunities since it sounds like the place where you live is severely limiting.

PS, even if I had no family to support at all, I would probably DIE on your living wage. I'm impressed that you've been able to do anything with that amount of money. Now it is time to be smarter with what you make.

Pretty down on life kinda need advice/guidance

You're way ahead of the game. I've always said its not how much money you make, it's what you do with it afterwards that matters. Being at the same job for 7 years means you either like what you're doing or you've been lazy in trying to find something better. My suggestion is to decide what it is you want to do, then figure out what it will take to get there, then go do it. The fact that you posted this means you're still stuck in mindset of "keeping up with the Jones". Forget about what other people think of you, they don't matter. What matters is how you think and feel about yourself. If you can accomplish what you have now with the little resources you've had, you've already proved you can do anything you set your mind to. So go out and be the man you want to be. I wish you great success!

chase the dream and not the competion. I work with a bunch of investment and small business bakers who think they poop greatness. Some are very good at what they do and have nice houses and cars but I'm rubbing shoulders with them at 22yrs old. Count your blessings before you look over the list of problems. Remeber sir, the grass is always greener on the other side.

So I got into my Lamborghini Gallardo and revved it up to 40,000 RPM (this is an Italian import with special engine system). I got onto the freeway near my house and threw it into 8th gear, I hit about 600 mph and I could hear the sonic boom as I broke the sound barrier. As I was flooring it on the freeway like a badass, Jessica called me and said she wanted me to **** her. So be it.

I came to a full stop from 700 mph in front of her house. These Ferraris have top-notch brakes, you know. So she gets out of the house and walks up to my Bugatti and starts eyeballing my dick. I could tell she was staring at it because when I looked at her I noticed she was looking at my dick. Booya.

Flash forward 10 minutes later. My 30-inch dick is going inside of her pussy, hitting them walls. I'm holding her entire body up with my left pinky as I'm screwing her and she has 30,000 orgasms. She looks me in the eyes and she says **** me harder, V-TEC just kicked in, yo. I blow my load so hard she falls off my dick. There had to have been about two gallons of cum everywhere. People say I cum like a porn star and I wouldn't disagree with them.

I throw her a towel so she can clean herself up then I do a triple back flip into my Maserati and drive home.
Aware.

Stop living for "things" and stop comparing yourself to others. Acquire a useful skill/trade so that you can make a decent wage and enjoy life instead of just living for "stuff".

Eric, what is your typical week like. I'm the type of person that gets a little blah when I'm alone so I always try to do something with people. Do you ever get a chance to get out and forget your problems?

Re: Pretty down on life kinda need advice/guidance

If you would read his repy he included Kenworth employees. As they do make good money however most of them are investing in stocks. And most of the people in here have been here for 15 years or more. The ones that do drive nice cars have one of two things a single lifestyle any good mind or a spouse that makes a good living also. If you want a job like Kenworth or Dupont take the test like everybody else did quit complaining. Your doing better than most.
