It never fails to amuse (and annoy) me how people seem to think that the reason why I haven’t bought any house/apartment/etc is because I fail to grasp the financial system.
I had another lecture from Boss yesterday about the: wonders, glories, and fantastic fiscal rewards of home ownership.
I stayed quiet and let Boss talk, after all Boss is my Boss. This was also to keep my tongue in check, as it would not be wise to convey my . . . frustration . . . on this point.
I also have decided not to respond to these talks, because to do so would turn a lecture that I have heard many times over, into a discussion.
And I will not have a discussion on my plans for home ownership, nor discuss why I don’t want to and flatly refuse to get a mortgage unless the property is an incredible steal of a deal.
I will not speak back on this issue with Boss, because I don’t want t give Boss any indication that I may change my mind if Boss continues to speak.
Nor do I wish to hear any attempts to sway me, on the few times that I have said anything.
I know about how home buying works, I know about house prices, and all that, I simply reject it all . . . for me, at least for now.
I do want a home and I do want land, I just refuse to go into debt to do it.
That and, after all, I am content yet not complacent.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
