This guy contacts me and wants to buy a domain, great. I ask him to make an offer, he says $150 and when I counter with a more than reasonable price, he starts ranting about how people like me suck, while flipping burgers is honorable. I’m sure most of you have come across at least one douchebag like this guy and only one thing bugs me: how can someone claim that selling unhealthy heart attack inducing burgers is honorable, while investing in something isn’t?
Here is his reply btw:
“Youre a greedy idiot and everyone like you should be ashamed to be selling domains at these prices while others struggle with honorable jobs flipping burgers!!”
The sad part is that this person is not alone. Ok, so investing in domains is not “honorable”?
Alright, then what is?
- Selling unhealthy heart attack inducing burgers to ignorant sheeple? (aka flipping burgers)
- Selling alcohol/cigarettes to the previously mentioned sheeple? (aka being a bartender or owning a bar, whatever)
- Selling Pepsi or *insert unhealthy soda brand* to children who don’t know better? (aka anyone who works, in one way or another, for or with soda companies)
The list could go on and on but this much is certain:
MOST people should look in the mirror before opening their mouth!
Does this mean that investing is the most honorable occupation out there? Of course not, I’m always the first to admit that what a doctor does (for example), is far more important than what I currently do as an investor/business owner but at the end of the day, let’s face it: investing in something (domains, real estate, whatever) is anything but shady, this is what capitalism is all about!
