Well to the PP if you look at the world most rich people's list you would find atleast three people from India in that list...we cannot pin point to see Australians are better off or worse than people in India..

This is a thread about people claiming poverty when clearly they aren't.

Anyone who thinks that's living below the poverty line is a complete moron.
I bet they're the types to say, "life is such a struggle... I mean, we can barely afford the foxtel bill and private school fees."
Cry me an effing river.

Ha, ha ha, ha ha ha!!!
Df starts a new job on Monday (yay!) and will bring home approx $600 after tax. We're ok with that. We can live with that. I think that puts us close to the poverty line but eh!
I think your friend needs a reality check op

Just to make it clear $100k is not poverty. Never said it was. Just saying depending entirely on your personal circumstances you (and not you personally just the generic you) might not feel rich.
And having 4 kids has nothing to do with money. Ask anewme about that. But no I'm not poor. But I know how to live within my means.

I wasn't even thinking about kids when I made the comment about 100k being rich (well very well off)... I would think it regardless. Like if someone said they earn 100k I'd think that's awesome but it wouldn't occur to me to ask 'yeah, but how many kids do you have?' Lol
I understand your point though - I guess I just didn't see how it relayed to my point.
For the record to people out there who think its so much cheaper having just 2 mouths to feed... I still have to pay the same as a larger *generic* family (2 kids 2 adults) for things, and I can't split things in half at the supermarket, I pay the same rent as if a larger family were living here etc. lol but that's another thread!!

But I get what you are saying, we earn close to that with me being SAHM, and I sometimes find it hard to juggle, our outgoings are very high. But I would never ever think we were poor, and I believe we are very lucky that I can afford to be off work indefinitely etc.

...sorry didnt want to open a can worms but i can tell from the emotion here that at least me feeling annoyed by the saying "under the poverty line" was validated..its just really got to me.
