Would you accept a guaranteed $120,000/yr allowance on the condition you would never be allowed to earn money from any other source?

Hell yeah, that's a little more than double what I make now and I don't live too bad as it is.

If you said it was adjusted annually for inflation I'd be even more on board.

Oh and allowance sounds like I wouldn't have to do anything for the money.

If there are work requirements it would depend on what was asked of me whether I would do it. Some jobs aren't worth the money no matter what the pay for me.

I dunno, it sounds like an easy contract to breach. No gambling, no selling anything ever. Although I guess if breaking the rules just means no more money, there's nothing to lose.

Banks give interest, so you wouldn't be able to use a bank, unless maybe you signed up for some no-interest account. Maybe not all bank-equivalents give interest, I don't know. It just seems like there are lots of ways to accidentally earn a little money.

I'm meaning it to be you don't have to do any work. You can still work all you want, but you can't get paid for it (you can volunteer). If you have something to sell, you have to give it away instead. Gambling for money wouldn't be an option.

What about bank account interest like Mat asked? Donate to charity because it can't be avoided?

The Mods should have rejected this question for not having enough information...

Not all banks pay interest.

It sounds like a pretty sweet deal.

it's just inside what i'd consider a comfortable living, so yeah.

We have different definitions of comfortable.

Is it higher or lower than what you would consider 'comfortable'?

Well i'd be comfortable retiring on $120k a year pension.

I am sometimes not sure what to do with myself when I’m not at work. I don’t think I would live the socialite lifestyle eloquently.

$120k not enough for you?

I'm surprised that a Californian would think it enough. Maybe the cost of living there isn't as high as I thought.

Are you including spousal income as one of the additional revenue sources? Like $120k annually would be total household income?

my only debt is my mortgage and i pay off my credit cards right away if i have to use them.

I have 1 year left on my mortgage. I was thinking of paying it off, it's £60 a month

I find it odd that the question is whether or not it’s enough not whether or not you would be able to work.

Are you able to turn hobbies into crafts? Are you allowed to do anything other than lift weights and run marathons?

I live in California, and live on between $10,000 and $20,000 a year.
Fortunately, my house payment is low - I bought it a long time ago.
It's not easy, but it's doable if you have housing.

I'd love to have $120,000 a year.
I'd feel rich!

of course
6 months ago - Tuesday 11/2/21 - 9:34:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'll never make more than 3/4 of that.
I chose poor majors in college and grad school.

all a mindset if you ask me. i know people with no fancy degrees or anything making $100k, they're just good at what they do.

It's also my poor social skills.
