That's Money, Honey
what up Queens? I can't believe you just did. I'm sorry. I'm just sipping my tea. It's not tea or a tagline. I was about to say, Oh, don't lie. I something to bitch about with, are you okay? I don't understand why I walk into a bathroom and the seat is down and there's piss all over the mother fucking seat. I don't get it. I don't understand it. I don't, I don't know how men don't know to raise the seat, but see my at work or my least favorite thing is when they don't want the seat back down. Well bothers me even more than like piss being on the seat. That's usually only when you go to like someone's house or like you're house. I cannot tell you how many times I've fallen into the toilet because one of you forgot to put the seat down. It was really fun watching if that helps at all. I just don't know what these, like people's parents have taught them over all this time. I don't think you can blame it on the parents. Well, well who should I blame it on? I just don't asshole that did it. True.
what up Queens? It's your girl Zachary t and my wonderful cohosts a gene on the millennial prop od MPP. What up Queen. What's going on? You may be wondering, what is millennial prop pod all about? Is it a discussion about how narcissistic, lazy, and Baroque millennials are? What do you think ag, well, let me preface with, I really hope people aren't taking it that seriously. We're not that serious. Okay. I just wanna make sure we're on the same page about this. I don't ever want someone to think that I really, truly care like what's happening with the Kardashians. There's a true, well this is more for your commute to cheer you up, but millennial pro pod has more to do with rural real millennial prop problems. Like why are the Kardashians the new Rockefellers and how does this view of this ultra rich and ultra famous family affect our self image?
And how of your peers? That sounds more like a millennial problem then why we still live with our parents, don't you think a g? I would say you'd be both. Say yes girl. Come on. I wrote out this for you to say yes bitch. Well, every single episode with millennial prop, hod we like to get started with a little game or a little discussion. Last week we talked about our personality and things like that, but this week I want to give homage to the podcast off the highway, a sister production from freeway production. At the end of every episode of that wonderful podcast, they actually talk about for 60 seconds, whatever they want to talk about. It could be about sex, it could be about drugs, it can be about rock and roll or Spencer talking about anime. I don't fucking know if you listen. So for your 60 seconds, what would you like to talk about? I don't know. You don't know know I told you to be ready for this. What's been bothering you the most is what I want to know. And then when the time you tell me when you're ready, I don't want you to start until, oh, our producers timing you, not me. I don't do the work here.
I kind of want to talk about how like people in the south think it's okay to come up and speak to me or like you know it's this very like bless your heart kind of. It's supposed to come off as genuine and nice and actually like concerning but I just know it's because people down in the south love love them some a t and they want to know it all so that they can go and bitch about it to someone else. This is such a thing and it drives me crazy. Like if I travel anywhere else I can get on a train, I can get on a bus, I can use an Uber, I can do whatever and I don't have to worry about anyone trying to communicate with me.
Everyone just mind zone. Damn business. It's amazing. I can't make that last for 60 seconds. But that really like, and I don't think it's something that's been bothering me recently. It bothers me all the time. All the time. I can't go anywhere. Like someone will hold the door open. All I should be able to do say thing,
terms up. This is aggressive. You had 60 seconds girls anymore. I need you to go on when I'm done. Okay. Cause I may go, I can't make that normal pitch sound like a feral darn cat. Are we ready? I'm really pissed off about the Rupaul's drag race community. I just want to say this is the most racist community that I've ever seen in my life and it is something that it's everybody in the Rupaul's drag race community. I'm not saying everybody, most everybody is gay, lesbian, transgender, what have you. I don't understand how all the queens that have gone over a million followers, there's like 10 or 15 of them. Only two of them are black. I think that we see these white drag queens as always winning and always being the best, even though the black drag queens are doing just as good. And what really annoys me about this community is we really like to attack black drag queens on Twitter, on Instagram for their makeup, for their looks.
But we give positive and positive views to white drag queens. And I just want to say if you don't like tire from season two, even though she did a bomb threat, then you are racist. She was perfect. Time is up. Okay. That was less aggressive. Well, I know I sound like a bitch with mine. You sound like a bitch. What you said was true. I don't want to talk to anybody at Winn-Dixie. Don't ask me. We were in DC and we took, I guess what is it? The the metro or what does it go? The Metro. Everyone just minded their own business. That's the same like when I lived in England, no one ever spoke with me, no one ever like, and I loved it. I was like, Oh my God, I'm in fucking heaven. I don't have to talk about too fucking Gertrude about motherfucking what she's bringing for her grandchildren this weekend.
I don't give a fuck bitch. I don't even know you were. I don't even know you. It's true though and I know that sounds horrible, but I mean notice for, but it's not horrible. The last thing I want to do when I'm out somewhere or like overly aggressive retail employee, haven't you? Have you noticed? It's always, it's always when you're in your worst stress, you don't have any makeup on. Well, I never have basketball shorts with no underwear underneath. And your Dick's all flopping out. That's when I'm Gladys wants to speak to you or Ethel. Ethel goes, Hey, have you noticed that? Oh I have. And I love it. That's part of what I looked like that everywhere I go. So I've made peace with that part. So I just want to say, even though this game this week isn't related to our main subject money, which we'll talk about after a word from our sponsors, I just thought, you know, we'd give homage to the originators to free reproductions because without them we wouldn't have a podcast.

Welcome back to millennial prop pod. We wanted to bring up money on this podcast and I know it's such a sensitive subject because it is such an integral part of everyone's lives, especially millennials lives and not only surviving, but I feel like our generation realize a lot of money in relation to our self image and also how we've your peers and I just want to throw out this disclaimer a, we aren't going to talk about the economy, why everyone thinks we're lazy and narcissist, narcissistic and that's why we don't have money, but Gracie and I will have a very personal discussion on what money means to us and how it affects our lives. Personally, I just want to start off by saying, bitch, I can not save money to save my life. I am so bad. I'm so much worse than you. I thought I was bad until I met you and I felt a lot better.
We're just so bad with money. We just throw money at every whim and every, if we want something, we just get it. Yeah. I'm not saying that it's bad cause like I don't really have that many, like you know, necessary expenses. You don't, I come out on the other side with like a dollar to my name, every payment. I'm like, why they were thinking about you is I'll be like, hey, do you wanna go do this and you'll send me a screenshot of your wells Fargo and it's negative $7 and you're like, I can't. I'm like, okay. I'm like, I'll spot you. I feel like sometimes I don't even give an exclamation or an explanation anymore. Like I just send you this screenshot of [inaudible] screenshot. I'm like, okay, we won't go out. We'll just hang out at my house. But I feel like, you know, looking through Instagram and whatever, I, I feel very insecure about like my house.
Like it's not the nicest in the world. And I get it. We're remodeling quote unquote, cause we haven't done anything in ages, but you know, I feel very insecure about my house. I used to feel very insecure about my car. The Kia soul I've loved. I felt so insecure about people would say shit about my car, the car I drive. Yeah, but here's the thing, people, 2001 Pontiac as tech. Here's the thing though, people would say shit about my Kia. Wow, you bought a Kia, blah blah blah. And I'm like, vicious. All my parents could afford, I mean they bought themselves cars myself, a car.
Like, you know what I mean? Like I'd have to explain this to everyone, but I felt like every time someone would make that comment, I would have to explain it. Well, I think that this kind of speaks to a bigger issue with just setting expectations for ourselves based off of other people's, you know, kind of fo, you know, dreamy Instagram life, like it's and Pinterest and things like that, you know, things that we think are very normal. But also I think it's important to recognize that one people's financial priorities can totally differ. And that's okay. Like someone might want a really nice house or someone might, you know, have kind of a, a set place to live like a home, but their, their biggest thing is like traveling or something. Like it's just, it's about priorities but that's not what we see online. No. You know what I mean?
That's the whole point of things like Instagram and Facebook is that this is supposed to be kind of this world that we even in RL, like we show each other the expensive bag that we bought. Ooh, look at this. Or my thing is, you know, I'm getting really into makeup lately and I feel like I'm pretty good at it. Like I'm not terrible. Like I'm getting, I'm not, I'm not amazing, but I feel like I'm getting better. But my thing is starting off with all this makeup shit, I don't buy the least expensive makeup and I'm just getting started on buying the more expensive one because I feel like I have something to prove. Almost think that it's, it's more about, and that's just a hobby. That's all my everyday life. And that's okay. I mean, I think, you know, when you work hard and you make money, I think it's important to do what you want to do with it.
That's your money. But I also think it's important to kind of, you know, realize and take a step back and say, am I spending this money because it's a quality product or my spending this money because it's, it's what everyone's spending their money. It's, it's the naturally the ladder. Yeah. So I mean I don't mind cause we know I spend, even though I don't do it that much anymore, a ridiculous amount of money on like camping gear and like, you know, northface and Patagonia and nothing you go camping like once every couple of months. But I, I do think like I, I really try hard to research the brands and find like what has worked best for people and like I don't mind spending money on it. I don't mind dropping, well that's your hobby, that's your hobby. My thing is their thing, your but here's the thing, you buy these things and I don't know about it through social media and I don't think a lot of people know about it. Like most people don't know you have a 300 whatever dollar sleeping bag. I think I do. Even though you came to me the night we went camping and was like, can I have a blanket and stuff? Oh that $300 sleeping bag didn't do so great. Huh? But I feel like whenever you buy something it's not to show off. Or did you, you know, be prideful about, I feel
like maybe I don't really do that that much either, but I feel like I'm still getting caught in like this consumerism web where I'm, I keep buying, keep buying because I see this shiny new thing. Like I have so many video games, like I have such a big backlog that I haven't even played yet because I play the same Skyrim and Pokemon. Let's go for the past like four years, you know what I mean? So I feel like I keep buying, keep buying. I don't know. I feel like I'm trying to buy something that makes me happy and it's not as the end of the day I'm making me any happier. It's distracting me. Yes. But it's definitely not making me happy.
I think it plays into the hole and is like kind of cheesy as I think it is. Sometimes there are some things about it that are really at least find fascinating. The whole concept of minimalism and anybody who is a minimum, a minimalist will tell you, you know, it's not about getting rid of everything. It's about getting rid of what you know, what you don't need. If this is something that genuinely makes you happy, you should keep it. So if you've got, you know, bookshelf after bookshelf of books and even though you're not reading all of them, you know, if that's something that really brings you joy, one, it's okay to invest in that. And two, it's okay to keep it. So I think it's, I spend all of that money on the camping gear, but again, it's not for some flashy whatever. It's because I enjoy those things. I enjoy, you know, camping. I enjoy being outside. So why would I invest in that? Let me ask you this. Have you ever felt judged because of lack of money?
I feel I have. I think the older I get the more, and not even necessarily right now because God, we're so young, but I do think like the older I get, the more people around my age have money. It's not that I feel judged, it's just, and my uncle used to say something so funny, he's like, you know, you hit a certain point and it's not cool to be poor anymore. You know, like it's not, it's not cool to be living paycheck to paycheck. And you know, especially if you have like a college education or something like that, you know? And that's not talking more like everyone's life is different. A job is a job. This is not me judging anyone for their life choices, but you know, it's not, it's not cool anymore to spend Saturday night at the brewery, you know, spending like the last of your, your paycheck, you know, getting a beer because that's your,
and then sure. I think that's when you get older, you finally, for most people I hope get a little bit more responsible. But I remember being younger and in high school, in middle school, being my parents were, did not make a ton of money. [inaudible] soap deal, don't make a ton of money. So poor. And I remember like my mom got congestive heart failure and that was the, like if she would have never gotten that disease, we would been much better off. But we almost lost our house. Like we lost almost
lost cars, that kind of thing. I didn't know about this till much later, but I remember about to go to McDonald's with a family friend and my best friend at that time, and I remember I was sitting in the driveway and they were like, okay, we're gonna go eat and do this and blah, blah, blah.
I was like, 10 years old. My best friend was like this, and my mom's going to pick me up or we're gonna do all this. And as my mom, and I said, uh, just can we go to McDonald's? Like, can you give me money for McDonald's? She's like, I don't have it. And I was like, what do you mean you don't have that? What do you mean? And I remember my mom just kind of looking at me like I don't like, I don't know what to say cause my parents hid the fact that we didn't have enough money to buy like a happy meal. And I remember like how my friend at the time, you know, we're children, so he goes, wait, how come your mom can't give you money or whatever. I remember him asking me that. And after that kind of experience, I've always kinda been very insecure about it. Like I remember I started working when I was 13 years old and my uncle's restaurant and I would buy, you know, Bergen stocks and um, what's is really ugly shoes? Uh, crux, no
everywhere. They're called wallabees. Yes, Bob Wallabees and all these things are mine. And I remember growing up to like make myself feel better. I would buy all these things. Oh yeah. Well. And I think that was, that was really kind of a struggle for me when I first started college because I grew up kind of in a similar situation. I'm just very, very poor. I mean to the point where like I could tell sometimes my mom was like, where's the next meal gonna come from
for you? And I hate to point out and interject, but you also grew up in a place
that was a very, well, I grew up in a very, I'm sorry, I don't mean to interrupt for middle class, you know, suburb and it was, it was tough. We lived in an apartment. No, it was a three bedroom, like two stories, like a townhouse more of, but it, you know, it was really hard. It was really, really hard. And none of it, I will say my mom was pretty like damn transparent with us about it. That's good though. So, right. So that there was never a situation where, I mean obviously there were times I'd be disappointed or I'd, you know, I'd be angry or like wanted her to like make it happen somehow. And I think my mom did a, you know, a really good job and a really terrible job of my brother and I actually getting what we wanted the majority of the time.
And I think a lot of that came with some guilt and you know, just of about the whole situation. But she was also, you know, at the same time very transparent about like, we do not have any money, you know, this is not, you are not like your friends. We don't have money like that. And I mean there've been many instances where maybe there were moments of like embarrassment or sadness or disappointment, but the one that sticks out to me the most, and I look back at it now and I'm like, you know, you can't tell yourself as a kid I'm being ridiculous about this. But I was probably 13 or 14 in his, in French class and the school, um, was basically hosting this like two week trip to France and I, this is kind of, when I was first introduced to the language, like it was, it was a big, I loved French class.
It was my favorite. I was really good at it. I was really good at picking up the language really quickly. And, and this was something that really mattered to me. And I was like, oh my God, the opportunity to go to France. And I think it was going to be like $2,000. And I remember coming home and telling my mom about it and she knew how like passionate I was about and how thrilled I was. And I think the answer was always going to be no, but she didn't want, I guess that disappointment to set in immediately. And so she was like, you know, we'll try to make it work. And I think there was a part of her that was like, what if we could make this work? Like, what if I can come up with the money for this? Um, and I
remember her finally telling me as the deadline was approaching to, you know, send in the application and the money that it wasn't going to happen.
And I was devastated. I was heartbroken. Um, and I was heartbroken too because I didn't understand fully why these kids got to go. And I didn't, you know, like it sucked and seeing the pictures after and all of that. And I remember like being so pissed off with her but then also feeling guilty because I knew my mom was devastated for me and so it'd be, you know, kind of more extreme situations like that just because I think I knew I was poor but also being in that environment you kind of just pick up on the attitude and you pick up on the, you know, like you think you're in that world. And really and truly it wasn't until college that I kind of actually snapped out of it completely scrub like realized I was not that kid. Well the same for me also. I mean my parents, you know I say they hid from us that we were extremely poor. I felt like they protected us from that. But at the same time I kind of wish you know there was more honest you with it because I felt like I was such a fucking Brad. Right. What I wanted, how soldier con and my poor parents are like working themselves. Death to like
provide for five cause my mom was out of work for years because of her heart condition and we had over $200,000 worth of like hospital bills cause my parents didn't have insurance, they were self employed. So you know, I, I'm really glad I had those experiences, but at the same time I feel like it wasn't super apparent until later cause until I, when I got to college and had to pay for everything like myself and that kind of thing, I was like, oh shit. Like it's real, it's real. And my parents worked really hard and I did not appreciate it then. And I appreciate it so much now perception of like how far money actually goes exactly at that age like that, you know, so it's, it's definitely like, oh my God, $100 for a pair of Wallaby's. Yeah, we could swing that. Yeah. Yeah. When there's another kid in the family. And also my parents were taking care of my other extended family members at the same time too. So it's like, wow. Like, you know, my perception of everything was totally off until I went. And so I experienced shit by myself and I was like, wow, this is hard to work and keep a house and you know, that Kinda thing. And it is one of those things,
situations too where there's a part of me that's aggravated that my mom put us in a school system like that. And you know, we were definitely not on par with everyone else financially or really socially. But then there's also a part of me that too kind of acknowledges the reality of what she was actually trying to do, which was to show us there was more to show us like what we could be, what we could do, what, where education gets you, you know? And so it's, it's tough because there, I wish I hadn't, you know, I wouldn't say that it was like a massive thing, but it was always in the back of my mind that we were different because we had no money. But you know, I wouldn't necessarily be where I am had I gone to a different school or living
different place. So it had pros and cons. I remember I was going to this girl's birthday party. I was in the eighth grade and I asked my parents for $20 to go get her a gift. And my parents are like, like, we cannot do that. It's not going to happen. And I said, mom, Dad, I am so popular you cannot give me $20 I'm going to be, I'm gonna look like a fool going in. And it wasn't looking back at it so much later than I was like, wow. Yeah, I can not believe I did that. And so I also feel growing up, you know, at that time it was my space and Facebook was just becoming a thing was still all about
money. Yeah. And showing off and that kind of thing. I still think it is now, but I feel like I have a much better IX like grass grasp of everything because they, she may be buying a $1,200 leave the Thom bag, but bitch, your car is worth two grand. And there's nothing wrong with that. But my thing is, I feel like people's priorities are very different. And they're very skewed. I'm in the grand scheme of things, a lot of
people use money to cope as well. Exactly. And because that's where it kind of truly like that's what it boils down to is we do whatever we can to stay relevant and we cope with that by spending money that we don't have. And I totally do that. I'm not like a flashy, like I don't, I have no desire to like girl, those chocolates were flashing those stripe talkings you just bought. I don't buy something to make it known that hey, I spent fuck ton of money on this. Or you know, it's, it's more of like a personal gratification thing. Like, well, I'm depressed. Well I'm anxious while I'm whatever. So let me go spend $300. You buy something to make yourself happy and to flow man swiping my card that an adrenaline rush, you know, swipe in the car was an adrenaline rush for me. Now apple pay is my adrenaline rush. I'm like, whoa.
So I, I don't know, I mean here, here I buy target clothes. I've, I've seen clearance back again back with the investment thing. I'm not going to buy clothing and spend that kind of money for it to be made poorly and like rip up girl. I know target from three years ago, I girl come out for three 80 than I am like, like that's why I shop at like, you know, I don't know if I should name places that I shop, but I can sponsor us. I can't spend dirty fee pics online, can't spend money on clothing that isn't quality clothing. I can't do it because it's, it's more of a, it might be more money at the time, but I'm going to keep replacing my clothing if I buy cheap CollabNet yes, but you know when you buy a $50 shirt and are buy a $3 88 shirt that lasts three years, you know, I'm still thinking that doesn't mean it's Ghanim quality though. I look good in him. These titties look great in that shirt. I need to get better about my perceptions of money and you to 100% let me ask you this. What does money mean to you? I'm not impressed by a lot of money and that's not something that's ever really impressed me. Money means to me like entertainment and video games, visceral and going to the movies and going on trips and traveling,
you know, I feel like I am materialistic but in a different kind of way. I'm mirrored materialistic with like video games and buying more books and buying more books on kindle, that kind of thing. And growing my iTunes library. But I still don't think it's, I still think it's just as unhealthy is someone who goes, oh, I need to buy this $1,200 Louis Vuitton bag to like impress everybody.
Well I want to say this, I don't ever want to judge someone for spending their own money. It's really not that deep play judge people for that. I do. I find myself judging when I see like, I don't know, I just, I'm around so many white women, they're constantly caring like coach or Michael Kors or you know, Louis or you know, whatever. And I know how much that shit costs and I just, I think the judgment is coming from a place of like, I would never do it, so I'm judging you. But if that's something that makes them happy. Yeah. I mean, you know, by your Louie
judged people more if they have the money to like afford those kinds of things and they do it. But my issue is with people who buy those things and they're like, oh, I need to borrow money. You know what I mean? Like that's my issue. My issue is not with the mountain Burke mom who stays at home all day and her husband who makes you know, millions of dollars a year and can afford that stuff. My issue is with the people who buy that shit and then they can't afford their, you know.
Well, you said something, you said the money doesn't impress you, so money impresses me. Hmm. That is something, but it has nothing to do with like someone's ability to buy like a Tesla or, or do whatever. It impresses me when someone works really hard and makes a lot of money. Yeah. But they're smart about it. They have a savings like that. There is something, Dick is hard. There is something very attractive about someone who makes money. Yeah. I that might sound really shallow but I'm just tracking on me because he makes money and he doesn't spend it. So it's a thing. There's something to be said for security. Yeah. There's something very attractive about security.
Very innate in like the human DNA that like security and being safe, living in a safer neighborhood and having safer cars and that kind of thing.
I dated a guy who, he was telling me, his roommate, um, you know, this guy's very, the guy I was dating is very smart with money and, and makes a lot of it, but he would save a lot of it. He doesn't wear expensive clothing. He doesn't drive like the most expensive car or like it's just not, that's not his personality. But he was telling me that his, his in New York, like sometimes like wouldn't know where rent was coming from. Like he didn't know how he was going to pay because he'd spend all his money. You go out drinking or partying or whatever cause we all do it and he was like, I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he sleeps at night, not knowing how he's going to pay the rent. And he's like, and sometimes he manages to pull it out of his ass and he makes it work, but like he's like, I, we're so different.
I don't know how he does it. And I do feel like the majority of my life, like I understand how his roommate feels. It's something that I have struggled with because of my spending habits. A lot of it is eating and drinking. A ton of it is eating and drinking and driving everywhere. Yeah. Yeah. Taco Bell, McDonald's, rock and roll. Sushi are nasty. You are nasty. You don't want to talk about it. I mean, if you're going to spend the money, I see you scarf down a Burrito and 2.5 seconds. So don't even go there with probably heavily medicated to work, but still you still down that shit and they say you go, oh, I'm so lactose intolerant. I had all this cheese. I'm like, you do this every day. But you know, I I, I'm really, I spend money poorly. It's kind of in my DNA and it's a habit I have to break.
But I mean I, I get it. I understand like you knowing you need to, you know, put money aside for something and save but then also like wanting to be happy in the moment and spending it and then afterwards being like, fuck, where am I going to come up with this money? Obviously we talked about like habits and being addicted. Do you think spinning money as addicted? Oh, 100% so me to 100% it, there is something like comforting. Like I said about like I wasn't kidding. He's like no cause I'll just send to buy. Exactly. I either and I was like we don't have to go spend money. I'm like bitch, I will spend money if I go window shopping. Well, you know, I sent you and riva that text message with the screenshot of like my status at a certain store that I shop at and like it's funny your status, but then like the status is like if you've spent like, I think it's over like either like 500 and up, which I guess in retrospect like that's over the course of like like a like a year or two.
But like it's all really expensive stuff. And I was like, oh my God. Like that means, and I know I've spent well over 500 like probably closer to a thousand [inaudible] and I was like, Holy Shit, holy. You look at him, you [inaudible] you're like, oh my God, what is my deal? Yeah. Like what? Why can't, and I always like asked myself, I'm like, why can't I just be a decent citizen and a good human being and not spend all this fucking money? Like what is it about me that, and I think a lot of that has to do with growing up poor. Like when you start making your own money, you don't have a lot of bills. I think that's huge. Like because oftentimes people that grew up though or as soon as they have money in their hands, they want to spend it because they didn't have that opportunity.
And I got to college and got a job at a pretty good place while I was in college and my school was paid for it. I don't have to worry about any of that. So all the money that I would get, I would just spin and go crazy and buy whatever. And now I'm in a place where I have a mortgage, I have a power and water bill and I can't do that anymore. And it's so hard cause you know you look and you go wow, $4 or talk about, I can swing that in the next day. You're like $4 to talk about. I can swing that next day. And my biggest thing, $5 [inaudible] oh yeah, coffee bitch. I spent $20 a week fucking Starbucks and it ain't that good. I'll
ask you make us coffee here. Or like even the fact like I got it, I used to smoke cigarettes and now I moved to the jewel, which is great.
But like I think about how much they used to send on cigarettes. It's the same as how I used to spend money on cigarettes and I spend easily like probably $50 more on jewel pods every month. I probably spend close to 150 or $200 a month in jail pods. It's insane. It makes me sad. It is. It's tow. It's, but that's just like my point is these like meaningless things that we somehow makes it vital. Yeah. Or like happy, you know, that rush of dope and happy. Yeah. It's, but I mean in the end it's really not making me happy because then I stress about like what if something happens to the car? Do I have enough money to cover like needing a new transmission or something like that. You know, so, well, you know, I think we had a pretty good discussion about money. What's the stress?
I don't know how to really get better with it and I don't think it's our fault. I think we know how to get better with it. What I think, I think we all like the general like basics of finance. I think we know, don't go do this. Make us say make your meals at home. Don't drink every night. Don't dry. I mean I drive every day. You ain't going to drive out. Yeah, you go, you'd go on a ride with me. I'm just going to drive around at one o'clock in the morning. I'm like, no bitch, I'm in bed. I don't think I end up spending or like buying, you know, two tanks of gas a week. Well 45 bucks to fill that thing. My thing is, it's really not her fault. It's the big wigs up at the top. It's their fault. It's 1% in the 0.5% it's their fault. They make more than the entire middle class. You know, you have to think about like as much as we bitch about them, the majority of those people didn't get to where they are because they, you know, spent an insane amount of money on food and alcohol between 20 and 25 I don't care. I'm just saying I don't just put it in perspective. They were probably handed down that wealth though. Let's be real.
I don't think that's fair. I don't think that's fair. I think it's very fair. Bitch, I wasn't handed no wealth. Look at me. Rags to riches. So done with you or am I shorts from a Walmart? You're welcome. I'm in my, my Madwell jeans. Oh God. Hear me well, if I heard your word and made well again, I'm going to scream. Well, thank you for listening. I'm now a word from one of our sponsors,
Zachary team. Are you tired of mansplaining? Yes. My jaw gets tired. My Lips start hurting and my mouth gets so dry.

It's such a terrible problem that millennial prod pod has come up with a solution on its own. A mother fucking muzzle. A muzzle. Actually muzzles are for horses and dogs. If you didn't know ma'am. Exactly. That's why you'll put it on your face. Shut the fuck up and stop mansplaining. Let me put it on for you now. What a perfect solution. Thank you. Move. That's better. Peace. [inaudible]
