Some people from social nets like to show what they got…
Do not feel too special someone always has more than you do.
13,000 rubles is only 438.67 that is less than a weeks pay minimum wage for an American an crap apparent will cost you $500.00 in the US and that is in a small town.These are kids showing of their more than likely months pay before they have to spend it on housing and food then you have maybe 4,000 ($129 USD) left you can hardly do anything with that.
Most people in this world spend all of their earned money paying bills and for housing and food.Pay to pay check and it gets harder every year.
American minimum wage is 7,25 per hour, which equals 290 USD for a 40-hour week. Apart from that, I agree with what you said.
True but many states have a higher minimum wage by state law if you average it out it is about $8.00 an hour and some employers are nice enough to pay a more fair wage.You will not stay at minimum for too long (or should not) but how much better is $9.00 than $7.25? Not all that much.
Still in most regions in the US depending on your life style and location you cutting it close until you are making $15.00 per hour or more.
Another problem for low wage workers many companies only hire entry level people part time so they are not getting 40 per week maybe closer to 25 so even if they make more than the minimum it is hard.
I do well pay wise as does my wife but we are frugal people as well and do not waste our money many Americans do waste theirs and I am sure many people from other nations do.
I meant to say a months pay not weeks in my OP.
Want to show off your moneys? Rol up the 100 USd and light your cigarette with it. That’s what I do.
I wonder how many are just photocopies or one-sided. Honestly, I did spread out my first paycheck and take a photo. Never shared it though.
photocopies a few 100 USD,flush into the toilet bowl and snap a picture…
The girl on top has the most money!
What,do you thing this is the first major recession ever?The paper is still good!!
poeple with money freak me out : )
The amusing irony is that 99% of the time (I see the same trend in the US also) when people try to show off money in a pic, they forget the background of the pic shows how truly poor they actually are. Scroll through the photos above and pay attention to their backgrounds…. with the exception of the first pic, the rest look like they were taken in quite poor ghetto apartments. I had a nicer apartment than these showoffs when I was 18yo. Especially hilarious is the guy who forgot his vacuum cleaner in the background, or the “rich guy” that could only afford a 12″ CRT tv, hahahahaha.
SSSR, in the first picture you do not see even one note with reverse side showing Independence Hall. All pictures are with Ben. What does it say to you?
The sad thing is that the amount they show is always ridiculously small…
The wise thing to do when you got *REAL* money is not to show it to anyone! These people just look like they never had so much money before, and are trying to show they’re bigger than average people, trying to make other people with envy. That’s so something poor people do.
And in second to last pic, the girl showing 4 100€ bills – on lower right of those bills should be a hologram, clearly not the case with those.
And what’s with the guys lips?
