I thought it was a troll...

Then I saw this khaki cargo short wearing mother fucker in the reflection and really think this doo is a complete moron

dude is absolutely the guy in a dirty wife beater, basketball shorts, tall socks and slides standing completely still feet a little further than shoulder width apart with his mouth slightly agape trying to figure out why his lottery tickets and beer cost so much holding up the line at the gas station

So what's the next chapter, dusty makes a thread about taking an expensive vacation with all his savings?

Quits his job because he has a safety net to "find a real job"?

Or new expensive monthly bill and "Oh no we make negative money every month!"

:mamoru:

I like how the bad guy is pivoting to the wife. Third act should be fun.
Dude couldn't even wait a month.
:rofl:

Can't tell if trolling or if he's just one of those people

Man I can't tell. People like this do exist
I was convinced he was an elaborate troll even up until a couple weeks ago. But honestly he’d have to be probably the best troll this board has ever seen to keep this up. He had the the debit/credit card transactions ready for example. Years ago he posted a photo of his wife which also corroborates what he has shared recently about her background

I think there’s an element of truth to this and he over exaggerates it for dramatic effect.

Clearly he really did have a car wash membership and a high interest car loan because he posted the picture.

I think he made up the Capella University story because he started dodging once I asked him for proof. Same thing with this, I don’t believe a 34 year old guy falls for a scam when the job posting text can be found in 5 seconds with a Google search.

He appears like a respectable human outside of financial decisions though. I'm not sure how someone could have such a Blindspot.

I think he’s legit. He’s just not that bright and thinks he can out-earn his poor person mentality. He can’t, but while he’s made a few nips and tucks in his monthly budget, it’ll just be a matter of time until he’s under water again. At this point it’s pure entertainment and a waste of time doling out advice.

@mollywhop is not that bright and thinks he can out-earn his poor person mentality but we don't laugh at him nearly this much

We should though

If he was capable of writing this elaborate of a troll, he would be writing sitcoms for a living.

Yeah his parents definitely did a number on him. Coddled and bailed out of every bad decision and then his father has the audacity to tell him he has no common sense lmao I’d straight up throw hands at my dad
I'm sure his dad's decisions just always turned out well, regardless of how dumb they were. It's better to be lucky than good, and that generation proved it.

They didn't teach their kids the skill sets to thrive in our society because they're not aware of them.

Ah yes, clearly it's someone else's fault. Surely we can't expect an adult to take some responsibility for self improvement.
It’s safe to say he was coddled as his parents let him live in one of their properties for free/next to nothing and it still wasn’t good enough for him.

Any normal person would see this as your parents throwing you a bone so you can get your shit together but he wanted to move to Colorado to be outdoorsy or some shit
