You’re trying to scare us into selling. It won’t work. Let me explain why.

I grew up poor. I grew up on the poor side of town. I remember my parents struggling with money for years. Shitty cars. Shitty clothes. Never owned any video game consoles because not only did my parents not approve of them, they couldn’t afford them. Ramen was a staple at home. I still eat it to this day. Pro tip you can have for the future – a slice of cheese and a whisked egg in your ramen make it way better than just with seasoning alone.
I’ve been broke almost my entire life. I’ve never had more than $9,000 liquid at one time. I’ve been homeless too many times to count. I’m an expert at thrift store shopping. I’ve worked 50, 60, 70, 80, even 90 hour weeks at shit jobs since I started working at 18. I’ve never stolen. My parents raised me to be honest and a good person and a hard worker and that’s just who I am.
I have struggled and have always dealt with debt and I have lived basically paycheck to paycheck for my entire adult life.
If you think the prospect of losing the few hundred dollars I have in GME is going to scare me into selling before Friday, you couldn’t be more wrong.
When you only ever average like $1,000 in your checking account, what’s the difference when it’s $100 or $10? Do you have any idea how many times I’ve been there before? You know what I do when I’m completely fucking broke? I literally shrug my shoulders and play some video games or music until my next paycheck. And I’ll do it again. I’m not here to get rich overnight. I don’t have enough to invest to make that happen. I’m here to say fuck you and to be a part of this moment, this movement. I will never sell. Never. I don’t even care about the money at this point. If I never see it again it makes no difference to me. I have to go right back to work tomorrow and the next day and next week and next month and next year.
There isn’t a single thing you can say or do to change my position. I risk my money happily. I am not the least bit scared or worried. You might be a financial expect, I am a survival master.
Power to the people.
I will not sell.
