I'm reading a very bad listicle titled "20 habits that prevent you from being a millionaire" just to see how completely detached from reality it is and folks
@Timmy goddam, guess I better kick that $40/day coffee habit if I ever want to be a millionaire then.
@dirtbag_anarchist I simply continue drinking coffee to make sure I don't accidentally become a millionaire at some point
@Timmy wow i stopped drinking coffee to save money but i didnt realize that i’m gonna be scrooge mcducking into a pool of golden coins!
I thought my local cafe was massively overpriced, but kept going anyway. I guess I just wasn't paying attention to inflation.
@Timmy The gym membership number looks close to what a monthly subscription would cost per year, so perhaps these are yearly numbers
@Gargron just at a glance it seems like finding a gym under $100/month in NYC seems pretty difficult so I'm not real sure what these numbers are supposed to be
@Timmy I searched for the title of the article, and it seems to be reused on multiple sites. It seems to be popular with sites that split listicles into one page per entry and fill the page with ads. The content is most definitely not worth any better treatment
Also, I'm curious, how much does the most fancy coffee cost in the fanciest of places? I've found myself in some mighty expensive establishments (usually on accident) and I don't recall seeing prices that crazy.
@loke coffee prices have a lot of downward pressure because of how available it is most places, so I have trouble imagining an espresso for more than $5 and a pour over couldn't cost much more than $7, but I could be proven wrong pretty easily
Apparently the shop itself proudly presents its coffee as the world's most expensive at 75 USD. I mean, that's just 50% higher than the crazy price in the article. Seriously, the article must have made a typo and it's supposed to be 5? Come on, it has to be. It really cannot be true.
@Timmy also he stole that example https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Bach_(author)

@Timmy the next paragraph is also something. I'm not entirely sure how you "check your company's credit card payments" but this just seems like spying on people?
