A netizen shared how he makes roughly $10k per month through his day job as an insurance agent and his various investments, but spends $9k every months on KTV every Friday, Saturday and Sunday; leaving him with a little over $1k for his daily expenses.
Here is what he said
“Before i start, I just want to provide a little context.
I work as an insurance agent, some other insurance agents like to call themselves “financial planner” or smlj, call a spade a spade la pls, insurance agent just say insurance agent.
I make money through selling insurance and savings plans and etc, and I also dabble in cryptocurrency and have a few investments here and there. So I have a few sources of income.
I earn roughly $10k per month, give or take, which for the average person seems like it is more than a lot of money for them, but I have a problem.
I am addicted to KTV, not even exaggerating.
I have these groups of friends that go drinking at KTVs with me, like Friday I go with this group, Saturday I go with another group, and Sunday I go with another group.
So we spend about $600 (which we split) at the KTV, usually open a few bottles of martell, then hanky panky touch here touch there with the vietbu inside the room.
Not related to the story but many of my friends are also insurance agents, but some of them I met through those functions by the insurance companies and they are from other insurance agencies, we just got along well and go out happy together.
So drink already confirm need to have some “action” mah, if you know what I mean. Tip the girl $100 then “mummy” ask if want to dabao the girl to hotel, $300. So $400 on top of the alcohol money, then add the taxi fare and overnight hotel fee.
One night maybe spend about $700 to drink and have fun, then I do it all over again the next day, and the next day. So like that Friday to Sunday I spend $2.1k plus minus already.
Some days I wake up hangover, but I love KTV so much that I feel this urge and need to go down again. Even on weekdays when I’m working, all I can think about it looking forward to the weekends.
So adding everything up, each month I spend about $8.5k to $9k give or take, which is almost 90% of my monthly income.
And I can’t stop, and I don’t know how to stop, and I don’t want to stop. So what is the purpose of the story? Don’t go to KTV, you will spend all your money there (and if you go KTV that means my girls will have to butterfly and spend lesser time with me), so stay home. Find a hobby. Do more useful things with your life.
thanks for listening to my ted talk, ok thanks bye.”
