Just because we make money doesn’t mean we change who we are. When you start to make money and interact with people in higher positions you will find out they are more weird than the nerds you remember in High School. That’s because they are the nerds you remember from High School. Man I’m the nerd from High School too but it’s hard to keep being a nerd when you are broke, I couldn’t eat the books homie! It’s definitely a eye opening adult experience to run into people who have a second wife in another country, who are doing drugs while running a company, who are evil with their hustle and don’t wash their hands when coming out of the bathroom.
Pressure burst pipes but pressure also makes some people do some weird stuff. Making money and a lot of it is stressful and I’ve seen cats with Rolaids on their desk and a six pack of Pepsi trying to deal with it. I’ve seen people pick at their skin so much that it looks like some little animal bit them 100 times as all these little sores are bleeding. I’ve been at bars where cats are straight tricking and don’t mind dealing with Hookers or Call girls because they think they deserve it. I’ve been offered hookers when I fly overseas along with cocaine.
See when the nerds finally make money they start doing all the stuff they thought was so fun in their teenage years. Don’t get it twisted most of the cats who are musically inclined are nerds too it’s just they play the trumpet. This is why you don’t see too many cats who are grown men about their hustle. This is why a lot of cats with gray hairs are at the club with you showing off the same way the youngins are with their big rims. This is why cats past 30 are still in the club with you trying to spit at women 10 years younger than them.
In order to make money a sacrifice has to be made. It is rare for anyone who made money not to lose something in the war of getting on top. The successful cats just lost their hair and grew up with their chips the unsuccessful cats feel like they lost their ability to be an ass so they hope to recoup that by doing all the weird stuff they wanted. The reason why most cats are weird is because they refuse to move on with their life. I can’t go back and be 21 anymore but I can be my age and do what the successful cats my age do with chip$. It’s like watching a older woman at the club get flattered. Someone joked with her and said she was a lot younger and she is a sucker for believing it.
So take this post as one to grow on as you might be one of the cats I am talking about. There is a opportunity cost in everything especially with doing what very few do. Don’t revert back to trying to keep up with the trends now that you can afford them. Don’t try to attend the clubs that people who are 10 years younger than you attend. Don’t go to Spring Break knowing you never went to college and are probably 10 years older than the freshman. Learn how to control your stress through whatever means you have to from Yoga to running miles at the track so it doesn’t show up as a nervous tick. Keep your wanting to sex everything moving on the low and amongst your good friends as you talking about hookers and assess all day makes the cat who is about money think you are unbalanced and can’t be trusted with chip$.
You just don’t realize how many weird cats there are with money. No matter what you think these cats are from entertainment to regular old bankers a lot of these cats feel the money gives them a right to do their wildest dreams. Wait until you are rolling with them as you’ll probably ride shotgun to a lot of it and I hope you make it out and get your chip$ without going down with them. Steve Urkel is a reality in business and just because you cleaned a man up and he got contacts it didn’t change who he really is. They are weird and you know what you probably are too!
