    You are right. My dad was oddly laissez-faire about the entire ordeal though....:smuggy:

    The Big Three professions still do answer some Fastlane Commandments very well, namely Need and Entry. To produce high-level products, degrees in these areas do help.

    At the end of the day, a Fastlaner might want to see the business world for the entire orchestra that it actually is, and not just a small career cavern of a profession. So, having a degree that can possible limit that perception would be taboo for some.

    After watching some drive-bys on TFLF post stuff and lash out due to shitty attitude, I have began to reconsider that having a profession to boost experience, connections and of course, capital for business, might be better than jumping into business rashly with a shitty attitude and lack of resilience.

    I remember doing my internship back in 2006, and I was teaching people how to budget in the car-link program so they had to show me all their bills, and I couldn't believe how many people took out those loans at these fast cash places and rented furniture, and the interest rate was unbelievable. The furniture usually got taken back and they were stuck with the high interest rate and had to pay for something they didn't have.

    I have low to moderate income residential rentals. Yes, that truck transporting the rented furniture and appliances comes here to see my tenants all the time. And their customers (my tenants) are proud of renting all these cheap goods from them. Go figure. I just don't understand any of it! Used furniture and appliances are almost worthless unless you are the rental company.

    I don't either. I mean I told them at the time, why don't you just save your money, and use lay away at k-mart or wal-mart, so you at least own your furniture, and not have to pay interest. That's just simple to understand. Save your money, and even if you don't have a lot of money, at least have materialism you actually keep versus watching it vanish.

    Garage sales and second-hand stores are where I usually go for furniture. It doesn't take much cash just to buy it. I throw it in the back of my pickup and take it home. Those old frugal habits die hard. Yes, I can afford to buy the stuff new, but it would hurt my heart to pay for something that is instantly worthless!

    My tenants don't see it that way. I have a retired veteran who is on public housing assistance and disability. She's a "preferred customer" of one of those furniture rental companies. Those cute young men from there stroke and flatter her ego all the time. I hope it's worth it to her. Go figure.

    Yes, I believe you can find some awesome stuff at garage sales, thrift stores, auctions, estate sales. I love vintage and antique stuff, sometimes the furniture is sturdier, and stripping and re-varnished always works wonders.
