So according to this post, you don’t want to own a pool, a boat, or a lakehouse. But you want to be great friends with someone who does.


I won’t have to work another day in my life! I became disabled in 2019


Go pro. I don’t even go on a picnic. What the fuck did I need a go pro for.


A backyard pool. I always wanted one until I had one. It was a huge pain in the ass. Had to buy chemicals, had to test the water, had to clean it, found dead snakes in the skimmer baskets, had to get the pump replaced, etc. Edit: this really blew up. I agree with what several commenters have said. If you can afford to have someone do the work for you then it’s something really nice to have. If you can afford the mortgage on the house with the pool but still mow your own lawn, clean your own house, etc. The pool is likely to be more trouble than it’s worth.


The job I am currently in. The work is alright, but the company is shit.
