(Maybe, AK should go find a job.)
Recently, I met up with three friends for dinner and over after dinner drinks, I recounted a story.
An ex-school mate of mine upon finding out that I was largely unemployed said that I should be ashamed of myself. This was even after I told him that I was not being a burden to society by being jobless and that I was financially free.
"That doesn't mean you shouldn't be ashamed of yourself. You are still young and can still contribute to society. You have wasted a good education which was actually partially paid for by the country."
Wow!!! That was something, wasn't it? Some serious stuff there to think about.
One of my three friends I told the story to promptly said:
"He is just jealous lah! What's there to be ashamed of? Don't have to work and still have money coming in. Just spend money. Spending money is also contributing to society."
Er, he forgot something. Earlier in the same evening, he said:
"Wah, AK. Actually, it is very hard to make money from you."
Yes, AK doesn't spend much money and is very careful when it comes to spending money. AK is not like David Gan. (See related post number 1.)
|A new past time for me.|
So, I guess, AK doesn't contribute to society much that way.
Like that, how?
1. To be richer, do not indulge...
2. AK on early retirement.
3. Work because you want to...
