Why are we the young generation so greedy? Do we think that we need everything at once and are well deserving of it even though most of us haven’t done jack to earn it? My husband and I see tons of young couples around us spending their money on every new electronic out there. Buying houses that are way out of their reach (not you Woodbury’s). I’m a young person in my twenties and I look forward to the day when I can go out and buy a brand new television, car, living room set or crib set. Most nights Jonathan and I will curl up in bed and plan out what our house will look like and what new stuff we will have once we are established. We don’t plan on any of this until at least our thirties.
So why are so many young people greedy, obessed with money? Is it the new trend to have everything at once and not have to work for it? Is this why there are so many financial problems out there? Instead of placing a percentage of a paycheck into savings they go and blow it to make their house look fancy?
This isn’t a personal attack on anyone, most everyone that is close to us is fiscally responsible. I guess I’m letting a little steam out.
