The minute you come into some money during your 20s people are immediately up your ass on the best ways to invest it. Buy an apartment and rent it out! Give it to your best friend bro!
The absolute worst is when people talk about the stock market. They babble on about mutual funds and fucking 6% returns and blah blah blah my broker told me this and that, and you sit there and wonder just how counter-intuitive giving someone else your money without having any idea what they do with it is, yet EVERYONE in this country acts that way.
Well, unless a broker admits to me that he’s going to take my money and play rock’em sock’em robots with it, he’s not getting shit.
