or earned if he is retired?
I don't but I'm fairly sure it's well over 55k.
generally don't have a salary worth talking about.
Obviously, there's a difference between boasting about what you earn, and disclosing it to friends. The latter isn't necessarily vulgar. People should man up.
money talk = for cunts
my dad's better than your dad?
well guess what son, my dad died a penniless alcoholic.
i'm trying to get a century
What's your shoe size?
Any grownup male with a shoe size under 10 is gay and hung like a mouse, DiScuss
And your friends will all think you're an asshole
not that much really.
A decent amount, especially now the mortgage is paid off.
our house has improved significantly. We've got new sofas and a new bathroom and loads of new fancy kitchen appliances. I'm pretty jel as I doubt i'll get a mortgage before the age of 30 and pay it off before 50.
They've gone on so many holidays. Fair enough, they've earned it, they should be enjoying themselves.
Their generation is cashing in on all the benefits of the welfare state and mental house prices whilst everyone else suffers.
DIE ALL OLD FOLK!!!
not sure what that is, shouldn't think it's much. He and his wife run a B&B on the side which probably brings a bit in as well.
They're always going on holiday. Its kind of annoying.
From his work salary that is. Hopefully he's had a raise since then.
No idea what he makes from other sources.
Although he retired last January, so whatever a firefighter of 28 years gets in his pension.
<true statement, but you can turn it into a Your Mum joke if you really want>
I think between them it probably comes to 55k, or thereabouts.
My grandma gets about £5 a week pension, but won't accept money off anyone else.
is he not very good with his money?
But he was on 6 figures, and got a final salary pension 'n' all for 32 years service at the company.
Don't know exactly what he was on. But he reported directly into the Chief Executive as the IT director at a huge bank so it'd be pretty big money.
mine used to earn about £31,000 before he retired about 10 years ago in his early 50s. So he must have managed to save a fair bit up.
Though I can't say I'm surprised.
Mine, probably £25k? I will be more than happy if I ever earn that much. In relation to cost of living, natch.
He always refused to talk about it, but once I rented a flat and he had to undergo a credit check to be my guarantor, and I saw the form. It was enough to make me let out a proper gasp, like they do in movies. Then he said he used to earn more but when the recession hit the board all took a pay cut.
Says he only gets about 65% of it after tax, but it's not exactly small beans.
He answers the 999 calls for 16hrs a week and is semi retired. Also i'm pretty sure he earns LOADS of money gambling but he never lets on.
I mean his jobs have been things like postman (in the 70s), bookseller, part time English teacher in Malaysia...
A financial consultant guy I spoke to recently seemed a bit confused when I told him I earn the most anyone in my family has ever earned.
TAKE THAT, DAD
