With regards to the subject of money, people still view it with despise and taboo. I had a conversation with my colleague. I asked her if she could be retired if she gave up her car and then she could have $3k less to spend. She could be frugal and be retired and time rich!
She gave excuses, like she have 3 kids to provide, car is a necessity and blah blah blah... UNLIKE me who is single, blah blah blah. As I calculated for her, she simply shut down and refuse to engage anymore.
Well... what can I say.
