well good for you!! I'm glad your content with your lot in life but don't blame others for making more than you.
do you have 4 kids and a wife to support? are they in university? and don't throw the old argument that... "well they should have thought about that before they had kids"
and no job should ever "max" out, if you've put in years of service your wage should go up not down.
Others can use the "but i have 4 kids....." line but we can't use the "you should've thought of that before...."
Let's use the "i have 4 kids, think about the kids" line to make others feel sorry for you.
But then again that's how we play the game isn't it. We make other feel sorry for us so we can move ahead. Actually only those bordering pathetic use such bs lines.
Last i checked the average middle class income is less then 60k/year. And you could live a good life making that salary even living downtown. And making 100K/year does not equate to middle class anymore.
