Bills are getting higher and prices are as steep as a mountain edge. Still, there are people who have very competitive salaries, or income from another endeavor. The odd part is that some of those who make a few hundred thousand dollars per year do not consider themselves wealthy.
A Twitter topic recently went viral while trying to answer if making $400,000 a year means you are rich. When a user claimed this is not that much of an income due to the loads of expenses, others went bonkers and rushed to mock him and others who think like him. All their comments are worth checking out, which is precisely what we’ll do next.
1. The guy
Well, this is an impressive post, and the reason is obvious. Someone is obviously making the kind of living that most of us dream of. An expensive home in NYC and more than a million dollars of income per year. Despite the hefty expenses, it seems that this person is able to save half of their income, which is awesome. They are rich and this is obvious.
2. The comments
This user commented on the previous post and we need to say that we agree with them. It appears that not everyone could afford to have such a home in Manhattan, but those who can make it happen are more or less lucky. We kind of envy them, to be honest.
3. The real comment
We wish we couldn’t agree with this post, but it is obvious that the user’s sarcasm is nothing but justified. Those who think that it is not right to say $400k a year does not make you rich need to think twice about accepting the pay suggested above for the described services.
4. The calculation
We’re more than sure that this is the kind of calculation that would make many people sad. That is easy to explain: you see, making a lot more than a family of four would need to get above the poverty level is nothing but having money in excess.
5. The sarcasm
This is one of those moments when you try to figure out if this is a real comment or a sarcastic one. We like to think that this is nothing but pure sarcasm. It seems that nobody would spend their hefty income on the positions listed in this tweet.
6. The wage
Those who seem to be getting by with the minimum wage are far from the people making nearly half a million dollars a year. They are also far in terms of perception of the financial world and the economic situation in their country.
7. The house
Now, this is what we think is one of the best ways to mock a comment. The reasons for this person’s reaction to the first post in this thread is obvious – he thinks the person living in Manhattan can save some of their expenses.
8. The disability
Well, this is not exactly a fun comment, but one way to mock the other posts saying that $400,000 per year is not that much. We are convinced that this person has had some rough times, but we hope they do better in the future.
9. The attitude
It is more than obvious that this is a fine post boasting with great sarcasm. It is also nice to see that sarcasm can be dressed in sharp wording and can feature awesome facts that serve the original purpose – to mock the original post in the topic.
10. The point of view
Here is a person who seems to have a clear view of the situation and she is certain that having this amount of money annually would mean you are rich. She is right, especially if you compare this money to the average income levels.
11. The salary
We honestly think that there is no better way to respond to such a tweet that what this person wrote. Spending the huge amount of cash you have does not mean you are poor. It means you are a spender, but you had the money to spend in the first place, thus you are rich.
12. The money
The logic behind this post is hard for us to understand. Having the money invested or saved, or not having them at all – what is the better option? The answer is obvious. This person is not poor. We are convinced they are rich if what they say is true.
13. The expenses
Again, this is the kind of post that could be sarcastic, but we are not too sure about it. On the other hand, the post makes a point. Still, having all that expenses means you have the money to cover them. That, on the other hand, means you are rich.
14. The consideration
We believe that the things you do are only the aftermath of what you did before. Having in mind the idea that someone makes a whopping amount of cash is enough to call them rich, regardless of how or if they spend it.
15. The opinion
Trying to come up with something to out-throw this post is hard. It is obvious why: the person who posted it has described things with no additional arguments, as they are not needed. If you make this much money, you are rich.
16. The nanny
Now, this is one post that makes total sense. When you think about it, paying this kind of salary to a nanny makes you rich simply because you can afford to do it. Nobody with an average salary could do such a thing.
17. The vacation
Most people were surely baffled to see that someone is making this kind of money and does not consider themselves to be a rich individual. This user showed just how far they are from living such a life.
18. The minimum
Well, some people take mocking the “I am not rich despite I make half a million dollars per year” type of people to a whole new level. It seems that almost everyone finds it hard to believe that this kind of people even exists.
19. The spending
Well, there is nothing to add here, either. This much money spent monthly on entertainment and travel means that the people who spend it are, in fact, rich. Nobody who has average income could spend it, and that is the simple logic of things.
20. The question
Here is one person who really seems to understand things as they are. In fact, the person obviously has some data to back up their opinion, and there is nothing better to see an argument that makes total sense.
21. The BLS
This is another post that is backed up by statistics. It clearly indicates that the person who makes six times more than the annual mean wage of a worker is nothing but rich, and there is no other way to describe them.
22. The families
This is the reality described in a single tweet. As you can see, the user has made it clear that the nanny from the original post must be making a lot of money. This means the nanny is almost rich, too.
23. The expenses
Trying to understand how a few people, family members in this case, could spend $60,000 on food and entertainment in a single year. They probably dine in fancy restaurants. If they can afford it, they are rich.
24. The percentage
It appears that one out of five people is making such an amount of money. It is fair to say that they are mostly rich people because they make several times more money than the average Joe.
25. The nanny’s salary
It is about time for us to say that the nanny described in the original post is surely the best character in the story, as she makes a really good income from staying with the family 24/7. She is paid by rich people, this is why it’s possible.
26. The couples
Now, this is a post that makes sense in a curious way. Having a nanny is okay but having her all the time, 365 days a year, is a different thing, and only the rich could afford it.
27. The budget
People who spend tens of thousands of dollars on restaurants and bars on an annual basis are nothing but rich, and this is a fact that most people back up. Spending money is only possible if you have it in the first place.
28. The rich mindset
This is nothing but true: those who are rich have the mindset of people who don’t have something exceptional but only the ordinary.
29. The scale
We could not agree more with this post. It is true that those who are blessed to have large sums of money are not willing to think of that money as it is, but as smaller amounts.
30. The average household
Now, this is one way to describe just how much money $400,000 per year is. We believe that there is nothing that could be said after this simple calculation.
