Oh how I love the perception that people have about you. But some people just don't get it in life sometimes. . . .Perception is a fickle creature.
Seems to be a problem these days. I see lots of young couples/families buying new houses cars then upgrading those with decks, stamped concrete driveways etc. Where do they get the money? We'll find out when interest rates go up. I look forward to getting a nice newer home for cheap at that time
Speaking with print shop owners and other business owners, they have trouble hiring people for junior positions because 1) many seem adverse to technical/manual work; 2) they want a top salary to start. At the age that some are buying houses these days, I was more concerned with putting 5 bucks together to buy a nickle bag. Remember nickle bags & dime bags! Way more fun than a house
At some point I expect all will even itself out. Let's hope.
