I happened to mention to my coworker that I would like to buy a rental house or a small apartment building, like a 4-plex, but my husband isn't on board. She said that I should just buy stocks, like around $3000 or $5000, and try to make money doing that. She said she did that a few years ago. At that point, I had to cut our conversation short.
Does she really think that's the same thing? They are in no way similar. This is the same coworker who treats me like I'm poor. When I happened to show her the drapes I was looking at Kohl's online, she showed me a much more expensive website where they were around $300 for a set. She made sure to follow it up with "Oh, you probably can't afford that though." I could afford $300 drapes but why spend that much if I like the ones online at Kohls? I was truly offended after that conversation. That's just plain mean.
People who think they're rich need to get a clue. Its never okay to talk down to somebody like that. Clueless!!
Have you run across anybody like this? If not, lucky you.
