My boyfriend’s rich family just offered him a $180k+ job and I feel so defeated. I know everyone says that it’s about who you know, not what you know… but this hurts.
He just got a call from a family member saying that they had a job that anyone can do, fully remote- they just need someone with half a brain to fill the position.
He’s turning it down to follow his dreams in his own field, which I completely support.
But damn, watching this unfold has hurt. That position makes over four times what I do. I don’t expect to ever make money like that, certainly not to have a chance like that fall in my lap.
It’s so demoralizing knowing that some people really do just have better luck and chance in life than others. I put myself through school and got a degree, and do love what I do, but I would leave in an instant for $180k.
That’s life-changing money, even if you only worked it for a year or two.
I love my boy and am so happy that he is able to follow his dreams. This has just been an eye-opener to how different the worlds we were raised in are.
- It’s far easier to follow your dreams and turn down those kinds of opportunities when you have the safety net of family money.
- you should 100% ask if you can take the job. the worst they can say is no but if they say yes the problem solved!!
- Eh, if they are just looking for someone with half a brain, can you take the position? That was everyone is happy?
