    When I read that I thought it said $25,000 a year. I had to reread when they were talking about their salaries.

    One of the most important things people usually don't have is a financial education... :rolleyes:

    This is terrible, heartbreaking. Anyone else want to help me with starting one of those GoFundMe pages to help this family out?

    I'm pretty sure bigtexxx makes a lot more than that.

    That's some pretty poor journalism. There's a thick air of indignation in the way it is written, not that it isn't warranted, but it's not an opinion piece.

    I'd like to know if Internet sleuths can verify this information. No last names were given and it seems very ridiculous that two doctors couldn't make that budget work. As for now, I'm bigtexxxing it and waiting for more facts, but if true, those doctors are financial idiots.

    So he works one day a week at the clinic and one day at the university for 300K a year. He states he works 80 hours a week in those two days? Hold up...24 hours a day...times 2...wait...wait a second. Now, I'm Asian, and we are stereo-typically good at math, but something doesn't add up.

    So together they make more than 25K a month, since that equates to about 300K a year alone. With her salary they are around 450K. A little less than half a million a year. That is a good chunk of change.

    2000 on groceries but 200 on dining and entertainment my ass. 2000 travel a month?? How could the cmpany not laugh at their client as they are telling them how to make ends meet. Oh right, probably watching them cut a phat ass check.

    United States has been siphoning money from the Canadians since 1776. They don't seem to notice.

    Yeah, this story strikes me as one of those "there HAS to be more to this that they're saying" kind of stories.
