I tell people that once the kids were off the family payroll, I was astonished at how much I actually made.

That would be highly unlikely. To be able to teach anyone anything, they have to be intelligent enough and willing to learn.

These are luxury items. Whether it's a used popup or a million dollar class A. None of us NEED them. That being said. I work hard for my money. I got a useful trade which I'm well paid for. Part of that is I risk my life to make the money in a very dangerous job. We have all made good choices to be able to afford to play the way we want. I do make more than most of my friends. A lot of them are riding around in $40k diesel trucks. I got a 15 yr old clunker and a $10k Escape. I got toys but I manage the money so I can play how when and where I want. I'm don't have a payment deciding what I can do. I don't throw it their face but I don't hide it either. They could make the same life choices I have. Its my money!

I just tell them the retail price and smile. They always assume I got taken to the cleaners. Retail pricing can be found easily with today's technology. When I was working for the state it was a state law that your gross pay was public information. I was instrumental in getting that information added to the state website. After the novelty wore off it was rarely mentioned in the media. I guess that is why it doesn't bother me when asked such questions.

I hear this at work from my supervisor and my co works. Side note all a bunch of big sports nuts, they seem to be able to go to all of the games and spend the weekend. I have a 2012 truck and a 2014 TT. Nobodys business I have 700 in my tailer. Neighbors dead tree totaled my popup I stood my ground got what I wanted and then bought her back fixed traded it and a insurance check for the TT. I dont care what my family and coworkers think. I say to my coworkers enjoy the game I am going to the lake.

I have had comments like that. I have also had comments like "a brand new trailer and the same old truck."

I have learned to let life come as it may. They say life is a race, in the end you realize it's only with yourself.

To by bluntly honest, I don't feel guilty or I don't feel like I should live up to what someone else thinks I should. In fact when it comes right down to it. I really don't care what people think about the way I live and what I have or don't have. Just as I don't really care what other people have or don't have or how they live. As long as they are not hurting, infringing or trying to manipulate me then everything is happy.

Don't let it bother you unless you're soliciting their input.
