I guess to break it down in numbers, we pull in about 110k, have one 05 luxery SUV, 02 truck and a 01 car, (car truck paid off) 2400 SF home outside 1604 and take out 3 times a week, dine out once every other week. Yeah, I think we live pretty well but we could live within this same means for even less than what we make.

You could get by on 40-50 and eat steak every night on 80-90.

I always wondered how people know that just by looking at somebody.

Easy. Stand behind them in HEB while they use their Lone Star card to buy $412 worth of groceries.....with only 3 kids, not 5, dunno where the other 2 were and she probably didn't either.....in your "Pink" shorts (ya know, Vicki's brand with it plastered across your ass) all the while texting her baby daddy (or someone really really important) with her 3/4 inch fake nails, on her iPhone (yeah, I know, you can pick one up at Walmart).........

Yeah, I only had 6 items and got out in the lot to see where she was having the bagboy load her 3 carts into her YUKON. Happened yesterday at the HEB at Culebra and 1604 and yes, I had a real hard time hiding my disgust. I will admit, I did not see any spray paint, but Home Depot is in the same lot.

After a while, you just know--you don't even need to follow them out.

So, for HER to live well, she needs at least $4944 per year loaded on that card, then whatever else she can get in WIC, then whatever the baby daddy's wanna kick in after sellling their dro.

In case you were referring to me, that number can flux based upon bonuses but is pretty average between of course my wife and myself.

$100K/year is not what it used to be, that's for sure. Every year I do my taxes my wife always says the same thing "it doesn't seem like we make that much"
The Intraweb is full of liars, though. That shouldn't be breaking news

Sure of course...but we only had 3 people who actually stated what their household income was.

70K
80K
110K

Was just wondering who he thought was fibbing. Those numbers are easily achievable.
