UNLESS I removed the yacht entirely and just had the little boat
User avatar #58 to #57 - qxangelxp (12/03/2013) [-]
I thought of that, but the big yacht not being fully shown was a problem

A buddy of mine lives in a 5 floor house, with the first below ground floor as a full apartment for his grandmother, and the bottom floor as a bar/party room with it's own large storage room for his ski gear since he goes skiing several times a year. Has an in-ground pool that has comfortably accommodated 15 people, with an all-around dock, a separate grassy backyard area, and a huge grilling station. He's frequently taking trips all across the country, sometimes internationally(spent a month in Australia), and goes on seemingly at least 2 cruises per year. Long cruises. And he will fight to the death about how middle class he is.

Well **** ***** , sign my apartment having, no electricity in the bathroom, bedbug fighting ass up for all available welfare. **** , I guess I am kinda poor.

I can't understand what you're saying. 5 floors.

5 (Top)
4
3
2
1(Ground)
B(Grandma's apartment)
Bottom(?Bar/partyroom?)

What? I'm confused.

5-Top Floor. A massive bedroom for his parents that's more like a studio apartment
4-His room, his sisters room, a full bathroom, and an above-average sized entertainment room
3-Main room(all the sofas and fancy glassware), kitchen, dining room, in-house door to grandma's apartment, and door to the upper level of the outside dock. This is the ground floor from the front(the house is built on a hill)
2-First below ground floor(from the front). His grandma's apartment. I've only seen the main room, so not sure about the rest. There's also a side-entry door once the hill has declined far enough. Also comes with it's own porch, only accessible through grandma's apartment.
1-Bottom floor. Only accessible through grandma's apartment or the backyard. This is where the bar/party room is, which sliding glass doors attaching it to the backyard. From the backyard, this is the ground floor, as it's at the bottom of the hill his house is built on.

At least he has some modesty about it, I suppose.

What does he work with?

While I agree with you that he is probably extremely wealthy, the distinction between middle and upper class is mostly about the way you make your money, not how much you have. Middle class people work for their living income. They go to a job and get a paycheck, which they use to pay their bills. Upper class people make money with their money. They make investments, and then enjoy the rewards from them. While Bill Gates worked for many years running Microsoft, it is actually the stock he owns in the company that makes him "upper class".
I know it's tough to stomach this from doctors who make a million or more a year, but they technically are middle class because they have to work for their money. That stated, they are still very rich people.

tl;dr: While he may be very rich, he is probably correct in calling himself middle class.

Call an exterminator for the bed bugs, make sure to get one that sprays liquid nitrogen.

Trust me, other than getting a whole new mattress, it's the only way.
User avatar #42 to #23 - suitandtie (12/03/2013) [-]
We don't have the money. Thankfully, in my part of NY, it's the landlord's responsibility to take care of bed bugs as they're considered parasites. The landlord is too cheap(not poor. His new tv, piano, and porch-style windows imply they've got some money) to get a good exterminator. We threw out our sofa, futon, and my dads bed. Exterminator took care of it(after we lived with them for about 6 months). They eventually came back. We lived with them for 8-10 months the second time. The new exterminator said our infestation was one of the worst he'd ever seen. They were all over the floor, walls, ceiling, the stairway connecting to the bottom floor, my room, my dads room, the bathroom, the kitchen. the living room. Everywhere. Exterminator took care of it, which was cool. However, the landlord was insistent that he and his wife didn't need their apartment taken care of, so...their apartment wasn't cleaned. Which means I know that they're coming back, it's just a matter of when. I'm banking on some day real soon. I've got some wonderful scarring from the bites, as I'm highly allergic and they itch like a ************ .

Also, I don't remember where the landlord and his wife are from, but they're from some part of the world where bedbugs are everywhere. So their response when we first told them, and their overall mentality in general, has been, "you just get used to them". So, that doesn't help either.
User avatar #48 to #42 - sashathefolx (12/03/2013) [-]
Jesus, I'm sorry. I remember having bed bugs before.

My younger sister had a friend stay the night at our house and I guess the little girl was infested with them. We didn't know. About a week later both my sisters and myself were itchy with little bumps all over our bodies, we even were scratching our scalps. My mom thought we had lice so she used the typical lice stuff on our scalps and practically died when she went to de-nit us. While she was painstakingly going through our hair she saw a huge ******* bed bug run across my sisters scalp completely unharmed by the lice shampoo. This was before my mom even knew what a bed bug was. WE spent months battling the damn things before my mom finally broke down and took us to the doctors. That's when he was like "ya dumb bitch those aren't lice." He told us to soak our hair in Listerine (yes the mouth wash) for about 5 minutes and then rinse. I guess the chemicals in it burn the bed bugs to death and it eats away the gooey **** they use to hold their egg sacks to your hair. (Yeah, you put that stuff in your mouth.) It worked beautifully until we went to bed that night. Turns out our entire mattress was infested with them and we had to throw it out. I actually cried because it was a nice full size bed with a thick comfy pillow-top mattress.

To sum it up: I've had bed bugs before, pretty bad, and I know how much it sucks. The best thing you can do is either learn to live with your Foreign landlords and deal with bed bugs, or move the **** out. I don't know much about NY so perhaps you can go to the county/district and see if they can force him to do a proper extermination. *shrugs* but I dunno. I live in Utah where it's too ******* cold for anything to survive here.
User avatar #53 to #48 - suitandtie (12/03/2013) [-]
Well, it's odd that you mention Listerine, only because their entire history involved being marketed for pretty much every use you could think of. Eventually, it was discovered that it worked as a mouthwash, and now...there you go.

Sadly, there isn't much we can do. My dad, as the tenant, would have to be the one to take legal action. There's an entire issue where my dads credit score is ruined(from when my mom divorced him), so any place that requires a credit check is an immediate failure. We don't even have a lease, but at $1350 a month for rent, we're barely scraping by. Any more would be impossible, so where we are is basically the only place we can stay.

That said, you must have had them really bad. Jesus, to find them in your hair. I've done waaay too much reading on this, and while they may appear in your hair, bedbugs mostly can't stand any place that isn't smooth skin. Unless it's so bad that the scalp is pretty much the only fresh place left. So to have crawling through your hair...damn. That's rough. That's like a whole other level of hell. Sorry to hear it. Also, sorry to hear you live in Utah. I've never been, but I don't imagine it being a lot of fun.

Yeah we had them pretty bad but after Listerine and chucking the mattress they were gone in a matter of a week or so. We called an exterminator in to spray the house with liquid nitrogen too. That was pretty ******* cool buh dum tsh . The guy even did the whole frozen shattered banana thing. I think it was just to show us not to touch anything after he sprayed it. I remember him saying that if we touched something with our bare hands our fingers would freeze and fall off. Part of me, still to this day, is afraid of liquid nitrogen because of him.
User avatar #61 to #55 - suitandtie (12/03/2013) [-]
I get that fear. I don't remember how old I was when I first saw Jason X, but they did something involving liquid nitrogen as well. So, what exactly do they do with liquid nitrogen? Like, spray the entire house and they just kinda freeze and then...that's it? That's pretty awesome.
User avatar #65 to #61 - sashathefolx (12/04/2013) [-]
mmhmm, yeah they do a light dust with it so they don't damage anything but enough to freeze the little bastards.

Although humorous, I'm going to state the reasoning. A yacht is typically very heavy and has a deeper draft (hull goes into the water deeper) and thus a smaller boat is necessary for smaller docks.
User avatar #7 to #6 - frienderman (12/03/2013) [-]
The little boat is called a "tender"

My dad use to make like $25+ per hour (I lived and was raised mostly by my gma, with minimal/no help from my dad). ever since the Bush era the companies he worked for closed shop and stole pensions to line their own pockets... he's still in denial and says he is still middle class... he lives in a trailer at 58 with a **** head 16(my little brother).

a lot of people share your struggles my friend.

****** . My wife's cousin got into the air force and he has heart murmurs... odd.
Live in America?! If you are poor, you can get financial aid to pay for everything, as long as your grades are kept up and you take a FULL course every quarter (or at least 3 quarters) (which is 12+ credits). That's how I am going to go to college next fall, for automotive technology.

Then your old man has poor money management skills.
50k per year, even after taxes and such, is enough to live comfortably on and not be living in a trailer.
User avatar #36 to #34 - thegamerslife (12/03/2013) [-]
he use to have a two story house. the trailer is after the companies ******** and all that. He barely makes **** lately, and as of recently has no job.

and then the boat sank, because he opened up a huge hole in the side of it for the sake of looking flashy,

i know this probably didnt happen but i cant be the only one who thought it

Are you assuming that whenever they open up the door, every compartment of the boat is subject to flooding, that's a pretty massive ******* design flaw.
