This is tragic. ET should all pitch in to help this poor banker out. Imagine trying to get by on a mere $350,000 a year.

Banker's $350K pay is not enough

lol this is about Peter Schiff's brother.

It's like when a professional sports player retires, they are just like trailer trash winning the lottery and blowing it .

No financial responsibility and they can't deal with the pay cut .

I don't care if you make 30k a year or 3 mill a year if you don't live below your means you will struggle financially.

These people are unbelievable. If i was taking in $350k, that means my take home income is $200k.

My a$$ would be saving $100k / year until I had a nice $2 mill nest egg, then I'd retire.

WTF....these people are just "full of themselves"...and greedy.

I feel especially sorry for the guy who couldn't go to the Mardi Gras for the wet t-shirt contest.
That was devastating...I'm sure...LOL.
