I never really thought about money until one day I checked how much I made compared to the rest of America. The calculator said my household income is in the top 20%. Kind of funny to me, because I always considered myself middle class. (My tax bill reminded me that I'm not...lol.)
I drive my 5 year-old Honda around, and I see all these luxury cars.
Who the heck buys these luxury cars? I have a small mortgage ($1400/month) and no debt whatsoever (no credit card, no student loans, nothing, nada, zip). I ask myself who is willing to get into a $600/month payment or even put down $20k and still pay $400/month.
I'm really confused -- who's getting these cars? Or, more precisely, what the heck are they thinking? Seriously...I'm supposedly wealthier than 3/4 of America, so how come it feels as if 3/4 of them drive nicer cars than I do?
I wonder...Is there something I'm not understanding here regarding car payments?
