'Don't go to bed angry.' Stupid advice, pushing an argument in place of sleeping over it is ridiculous. Often you wake up and the argument seems small and petty in retrospect. - SemiSentientGarbage

All the motivational rat race bullsh!t that I see on social media about working your ass off towards economic and social 'success'.

I live in a rented shack, literally. Whenever I say my home is intolerable, my boomer friends with nice houses chime in and let me know that 'if I work hard, save money, and focus, I too can own a home.'
B*tch, let's play Monopoly, but I get to roll the dice and go around the board for 20 minutes before you start the game. After I own everything and YOU have to pay rent for the privilege of existing, tell me again about hard work and tenacity.
I wanna be there telling them 'Just roll the dice boomer! You can't win if you don't play!' The boomer friends would absolutely flip the board and rage quit. This is my life. How can I rage quit besides being homeless?

Any financial advice that boils down to 'just remove all unnecessary luxuries from your life, spend only on subsistence' as if cutting Netflix will somehow magically fix a decade of stagnant wages, spiralling inflation and deliberately over-priced housing. - Zoomy-333
