My girl Krystal over at Give Me Back My Five Bucks wrote a post the other day about her plan to accelerate her mortgage payments. The article ended up getting picked up by The Consumerist and getting over 170 comments. My favorite of those 170 comments was by far and away the first one. It read…
Yeah, all of us are so financially blessed we can pay an extra 20% into our mortgages.
Bwahahaha. What a tool right? Anyone that reads Krystal’s blog knows she is no richer than Michael Jordan is white…oh wait…
I need not post a huge rebuttal to this toolbag’s comment however, as someone else summed things up perfectly by saying…
I’m sitting here stunned. This is the first Consumerist article EVER to contain advice that wasn’t applicable to 100% of the population. Totally makes it useless advice, doesn’t it?
And that brings us to the moral of today’s story; Haters are gonna hate. It’s unfortunately that simple.
I remember a few weeks after I blogged about becoming debt free, I had a person email me saying they felt I was no longer relatable or appealing. Because my blog was called Punch Debt In The Face, but no longer had debt, I apparently lost all credibility in their eyes. In an effort to remain relevant, I’ve asked Sallie Mae to give me back my $28,000 student loan balance so I can re-punch it in the face.
Hahaha, yea right. If that’s what I’d have to do to keep you as a reader, please do me a favor and click here.
Do you know anyone that tends to bring others down to make themselves feel better? Have you ever been the victim of trolling? If I started a website called Punch Miserable People In The Face, would you subscribe?
