Mickey Mantle stimulus checks

SDS

It is hilarious to me to see how many people on social media platforms have finished collections in the name of stimulus checks. Many of whom are unaware that if you are claimed as a dependent on somebody else's taxes, you do not get a stimulus check. That means anybody living at home, most college students, etc. That $800 of credit card debt will become $1100 by the time its paid off and their part time job is available and open eventually.

what’s the point of this post?

I think it's fairly obvious. To laugh at the kids who are spending nearly 1000 dollars with the false hopes of something that isnt going to come. To perhaps have one person planning to do this think "oh no [censored] really? Im not getting a check?" I didnt possibly think a further explanation would be required.

Had to read the subject and first sentence a few times, but it made sense once I remembered you Americans spell cheque wrong

Least thing I'm worried about is how another person spends his or her money. We make our own choices, this sounds like a somewhat salty post towards people who have Mickey Mantle.

SDS

Do you have examples of this? I really really hope people aren't so stupid as to blow what is most likely their entire income for 2 months on something like this.

Bro exactly. Who cares how another person spends their money. For someone to go out of there way to make a post about it on a forum just shows how miserable that individual is.

Spend however you want. I dont care if you have or want mantle. This post was made when I saw the 5th or 6th post from high school kids on social media boast about their new $700 card when they dont realize they will not get a check.

Lol go out of my way. Miserable? Look I'm blowing my stimulus check too. I am still getting paid, I booked a $3,000 trip to Costa rica. I'm also not 19. These kids will get nothing but credit debt because they are dumb.

Thank you for understanding the point. And yeah I have a bunch of examples but I'm not gonna put people's facebook profiles on blast.

But even if that's the case and they choose to be irresponsible regarding their finances, and get no guidance from parents or caretakers, why should I be worried about it? If anything it could be a learning moment for them for the rest of their lives, nothing is free and everything is taxed.

I dont think anybody is asking you to be worried about it. Solid input.

"Even though I clearly understand and share your point of view that it's a stupid way to spend in that situation, I'm going to continue to sit on a high horse and engage in discourse nobody asked for instead of having a chuckle and an eye roll."

I know that. It was rhetorical, since you are obviously worried about it. Let people be man.

Like your original post, you missed the point.

Way to pump that money back into the country that serves you so well. Fine example you set. 🙄

I think you are missing the point. I dont care how you spend your check, just make sure you have a check.

You realize teenagers are full of [censored]? and Mommy and daddy most likely bought it for them, with the extra money allowed to families specifically for children. Which is also fine. Who cares what kids on Twitter are saying anyways??
