Twist ending: This is part of a speech describing why he's not going to leave a tip for that coffee.


Expensive_Culture_46

I thought that was the reason for that entire spiel

Kleyguerth

When tipping allows the owner to pay less than minimum wage, you are tipping the owner, not the waiter.


ptownb

Hahahahha, thank you


illgot

as a server at a mid level privately owned restaurant, I have run into people who like to give speeches about how wealthy they are; one guy went as far as to brag about he was not tipping me because he didn't agree with tipping even though the restaurant was only paying us 2.13 an hour in labor and we lived off tips. I could slightly understand this from European or Asian foreigners but this was from New York. I stopped going to his table after that and my manager was fine with it.


CaptSprinkls

I've seen other videos of this dude. I swear there are so many of these fucking morons who got lucky, made it big, and now think that they are tough shit. And people admire these fucks for no reason other than having money


NoobNoobTrades

I can help these poor trust fund babies start from zero. Just wire your money to my account. Problem solved.


five3tenfour

No shit. Ask these people to start sharing with poor people and see how quickly their tunes change.

DrOrgasm

It's funny alright. Same as people who hate the Government, but will go to fight in a war for the same government. I don't get it.


ARONDH

No, they will lobby to start wars that poor peoples kids will fight. They arent joining the fucking military lmao.


buttpooperson

I know plenty of anti government jarhead dipshits, dude. They really have no fucking clue how dumb they sound, but whatever.


NoobNoobTrades

I’ve had arguments with pro military, anti-tax people that don’t want to cut military spending. They don’t understand that the only way you will see a large reduction in taxes is by cutting an enormous amount of the military budget.


Money_Walks

I'd love to, but that would take away one of their greatest advantages. Not easy being so selfless and bearing the burden of all this money.


runthepoint1

Yeah isn’t that funny? The very solution to solving their issue is to simply actually start from scratch. Which they will never do. Video guys needs to GTFO of here with that take!!


Chpgmr

Which ironically would be a great way to rise above your rich parents. Spending your life to try to help the poor using as much of your parents immense wealth as possible of which they spent their lives only collecting.

It’s not like helping people in need is an accomplishment or anything. That’s when you take everyone’s money and spawn a bunch of rich depressed crybabies.

Man, give me a couple million and I'll find a way to be a rich, non-depressed crybaby.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Sparkism

I am okay with that. I take my couple millions and fuck right off into being a rich, non-depressed crybaby. For an extra couple million, I'll waltz into walmart every single week and karen it up for extra crybaby factor.


Alakdae

There are 45 million people on my country. The average income is around 2000 dollars per year (29 million people with salaries) That means Jeff can pay the fucking salary of my whole country for 2 years and still be a fucking billionaire.


leo-stotch

Yeah, I don't know much about the intricacies of being mega rich, but imo Jeff Bezos could do so much for the people on this planet and just doesn't. I don't see why he wouldn't want to go down in history as the guy who helped billions of people out of poor situations


datderpyboi

Jeff be like "why would I help the poor when I can have a spaceship?"


roywoodsir

Trust fund: “damit this life sucks, I have millions, a lambo, everything I want and it’s not mine…oh well vroom vrooom baby” Poor person: “man I’m starving, oh well I’ll be there one day, satisfied I have food in my fridge”


subgeniusbuttpirate

Money doesn't buy happiness, but it sure alleviates a shitton of misery.


plafki

money buys happiness is the secret they dont want you to know.


Pizza_Ninja

Money can't buy happiness but money can pave roads to it.


BuddyUpInATree

I'm kinda tired of the different variations of this saying- because really if someone has a shit-ton of money and can't find a way for it to make them happy, that's their own lack of imagination to blame


k20350

Money may not buy happiness but it buys a jet ski. How many unhappy people have you seen on a jet ski? I believe that quote is credited to Bill Hicks


tweetard1968

Well a particular family of trust fund babies did just try to start a coup and overthrow the will of the electorate…so he has a point, they are miserable and always will be. They were miserable when they actually were in power. Do I feel bad for them? FUCK NO! Neither should anyone else, those fuckers belong in jail. Anyone who is a trust fund baby actually have a CHOICE of what they want to do with the money. Often times it’s multi generational so his argument about not being able to accomplish what daddy did is idiotic. “Oh, I could never accomplish as many country club visits as my dad did….” The good news is this tone deaf moron won’t have to wait 20 years to see if this aged well, he didn’t have to wait 20 seconds. It didn’t and it won’t


ginzing

Haha seriously


fuckrobert

I support this cause whole-heartedly as well ✊


Whisky_Six

And then they can claim any and all accomplishments they achieve as their own. Boom. I think you’re on to something. I volunteer to help some of these Trust fund babies as well. In the immortal words of the warrior poet….Trick love the kids.


LR130777777

It’s a bullshit statement anyway, They need to find something they enjoy and succeed in it without their money/connections. I love martial arts, So I’ll use that as an example, They could find a local gym and start training, Instead of going to an expensive private place. No amount of money or connections is going to help you when you’re on the mat or in the ring, You either win or lose on your own. Or they could progress through the belts, No amount of money is going to grant you the skill of a black belt, You have to work hard and earn it. They could easily find something they enjoy and work hard to accomplish things in that area, They have the money and time to pick up any hobby they want, So the only thing stopping them is the fact that they’re too lazy or they want to go and party. You don’t get to claim “My accomplishments will never be my own” and have absolutely no accomplishments other that sniffing the fattest line at your weekly house party


Particular_Class4130

really that could apply to just about anything, so long as they don't fall back on waving their money around and buying their way through life.


puglife82

And there are plenty of people whose contributions were attributed to someone else and who didn’t stop contributing just because of that. I mean come on we all have challenges in life. If your biggest challenge is “my parents’ accomplishments overshadow me” then work on how to live with and despite that like so many other people do with their respective challenges. It’s not an excuse to give up


dickforadolla

This is exactly it. I worked for a company whose owner was extremely well off. His son ended up being an NHL goalie who now has a Stanley cup to his name. The only reason that he was afforded that opportunity is because he was put in private hockey clubs, had access to personal trainers, had the option to travel for games without interruption or money troubles. That's not to say that poor people don't become famous athletes, but rich kids have a leg up from the start


cookiedanslesac

They won't because they are altruist and don't want you to suffer from sad partying and cocaine.


Iessaiam

Or just supply them their cocaine and still take their money, this is sarcasm I’m clarifying so ppl don’t actually think I am suggesting become a drug dealer r/s


Jen-Jens

Exactly! They can shun their trust fund, they just choose not to. You can’t shun the act of existing as a poor person. You can’t shun or turn away poverty like you can wealth.


phillyschmilly

I know a trust fund baby- she’s very happy traveling the world, casually wearing her $10,000 dresses, and heading up “fund raisers” for things like the ballet. Being given endless funds doesn’t seem to bother her one bit


infinitbullets

Sounds terribly hard to be a princess.


busterbrown4200

Yeah. Never knowing what it's like to deal with a drive through Karen in a mini van with three brats screaming behind her into the speaker. She better be grateful and know she's lucky.


AlikayRain

Are you working at the same McDonald’s I work at?


Germanweirdo

Every McDonald's drive through is the same drive through between 9pm and 5 am.


busterbrown4200

Wendy's....lol


Aksama

And ya know what else? If she *does* struggle with issues, less say depression, *she can get help*. Shit like that is a fucking luxury when it should be a human right. Mental healthcare (in the US) is only affordable by middle class and above, and the middle class is like sixteen people atm.


Signal_Ad2352

It's crazy how few people know this. I have medicaid which is fantastic because it pays for medications. But the mental health care is a joke. Therapy isn't replacement for a healthy environment.


rhaegar_tldragon

Not only the cost of therapy but the ability to be able to have “me” days. I suffered through depression through my teens and most of my twenties and I would wake up some mornings before work feeling awful but I’d have to go in and work my shift. It made everything worse and made me feel helpless.


avocadolicious

I don’t think this is discussed enough. It’s not laziness. The anxiety of potentially getting fired gets you out of bed and to get dressed and commute to work. When you’re there, you have to pretend everything is fine. Depleted social stamina so you don’t think your coworkers like you, and your beloved friend Anxiety Pt. 2 greets you as you get home 🤗 then you can’t sleep and don’t talk to anyone (bc depression) and rinse and repeat


iHateKnives

Lol yeah. People love telling others to get help without realizing it costs money. Trying out different therapists + ### of sessions become expensive really, really fast


phillyschmilly

Absolutely

I had a professor in college who was friends with a trust fund kid. He once helped a friend produce a superhero movie directed by Sam Rami. Didn’t think it’d make him much money, but fuck it, sounds fun right? Rich people can only get more rich.


DizzyedUpGirl

Sounds like she's thankful.

phillyschmilly

That’s awesome! Privilege isn’t in itself a negative thing- it’s all about what people do with what they have


queenhadassah

People like this totally invalidate the guy's point! You can do SO many meaningful things if you're born into extravagant wealth. When I imagine being rich, I fantasize about paying off people's gofundmes, tipping struggling waiters thousands of dollars, building homeless shelters, starting new charities, fostering kids, etc...trust fund babies have way more opportunities to make a difference in the world than the rest of us


dlfngrl68

I love ur comment, bcz that's exactly what I fantasize about too!! Of course I'd want a nice house but, nothing crazy. A nice car, but again nothing crazy. I stf wouldn't start spending thousands of dollars on 1️⃣ pair of shoes, jeans, or whatever. I'd be happy throwing my money around to people who really need it!! And helping unfortunate animals too!! 👍🏻🙂


fearhs

I'd buy a bunch of hookers and enough blow to give an entire third world country an overdose. I'm not sure if that would make me happy or not, but I'd be too coked out of my mind to care.


kindlyposting

See that's a good person with money. If you have everything handed to you and all you can become is an addict. You have to ask yourself, am I just a worthless, selfish, asshole?


let_me_outta_hoya

There are also plenty of trust fund babies that achieve things. It's the individual trust babies who choose to do drugs, party and complain that their life can't have meaning. Most of the tech billionaires like Zuckerberg, Gates, Evan Spiegel etc were trust fund babies. Their trust funds allowed them to take risks that people from poor families can't do. People carry on like tech founders have a higher tolerance of risk. Anyone would if they have money to fall back on. Most people can't take that risk because they need the money to survive.


Prior-Technology4199

I’ll take the trust fund. Obviously he doesn’t know the anxiety of driving his car on E because he’s out of cash and dumpster diving for pizza outside the Dominos just to have something to eat for dinner…


SasparillaTango

The poorest I've been was in college a week between jobs, 7 dollars in my account, lived on bisquick biscuits for a week. Lunch and Dinner. Never want to go back to anything approaching that. This guy is an idiot.

Been there lmao, slices of bread, butter and straight sugar on that bitch. Almost hid the mold of the bread completely lol


Itsthejackeeeett

Seven whole dollars? You ever have a negative amount? To where you need $30 just to have $0? I remember going through the couch cushions looking for change just to buy a couple 40s. Disgusting. Glad I'm not like that anymore.


SasparillaTango

I remember thinking "I can't spend anything else cause I can't afford overdraft" So 7 dollars in the account, for emergencies.


lycanthropeisme

I was amazed when my friend would say "I had to dig into my savings to buy a new car, I'm bummed because it took a chunk out of it " Like, you guys got savings? I'm getting denied food stamps because I make too much but can't afford actual food?? It was awful because I had a baby and we only got a few cans a month from WIC. I was working anywhere from 40-50 hours a week and struggling though college. Any money I had left after paying tuition and books from my student loans, which never was a lot, I would stock up on food I knew wouldn't go bad and formula and diapers. And my friends were talking about savings accounts? Granted they didn't come from poor families so they had more of a money/safety net. I'm in such a good place now and I'll never let my daughter get like that. She'll live with me forever if she has to but she won't struggle. Sorry for the rant but your comment hit home

I had a roommate that was really into motivational speaking and shit. It was all just meaningless BS to me, doing very little than asking you to keep paying for more. It all felt like a scam. He eventually got into it himself, and started a podcast that has like 8 subscribers.


seancurry1

Success Coaching is the new MLM, there’s just no physical product to sell anymore. Everyone’s making money teaching other people how to make money teaching other people how to make money teaching other people how to make money.


Bleachi

You can make a career *appearing* to be rich, so that other people will want to listen to your advice, or pay you for other appearances. But if enough people pay to hear you talk, then you can actually start to become rich. And before you know it, you're President of the United States.

mdp300

I've seen him come across my Facebook and Instagram feed a couple times. It's always "here's how you get passive income!" and he talks for 5 minutes without ever saying anything of substance, and then an ad to pay for more.


IIIISuperDudeIIII

Yeah, he's full of shit. He got famous doing wine reviews on youtube from his couch, and now he's an expert on fucking everything because he can talk with authority and pretend he knows what he's talking about and people eat it up.

I would love for some of these well offs to have to get hired at a company under a CEO taking orders. They would have a fit. Talking start over at ground 0. No help.


phillyschmilly

Fucking right there can. Or they could just not accept funds from their parents to begin with if they want SO badly to accomplish something on their own


virrrrr29

They could move to another country where no one knows them, leave their money behind and start from scratch.

Even then they still have an advantage though. No matter how bad they fuck up, they’ll still have a boatload of cash to fall back on.

Global-Employer9209

Didn’t this guy get hired to his parents multi million dollar company ?


milthaar2

He didt just get hired. He was given a 3 million dollar company when he graduated high school.


wiinkme

People who turn $3 million into $100 million all seem to think they would have done just as well starting from $0. They almost universally fail to understand the basic barriers that confront those living paycheck to paycheck during their best entrepreneurial years (20ish to whenever you have your first kid). To be fair, all the rest of us who have never had access to that kind of head start (capital, connections, parachute) also fool ourselves in assuming that, given the same means we too would have turned $3m into $100m. We're equally naive. But I sure as hell know what I personally could do with that type of support. Also, if you stripped all of Gary Vs money away, and all his connections, and asked him to start something new in a new category or field...and gave him the choice of starting with $0 or with $3m? No chance he takes $0.


pmmeurpc120

He makes it sound like a mystical hypothetical but I'm pretty sure it's not that hard to get rid of all of your money if you're trying.


TrumpWasABadPOTUS

Like, here's the thing: turning $3 million dollars in $100 million *is* an accomplishment, as is anything else someone that inherits $3 million dollars. I don't know how this guy is of the opinion that we invalidate accomplishments just because we take into account one of the things that led to it. Whatever he accomplishes is still an accomplishment that he can claim, and that can impress people; it's just objective easier to achieve those with wealth, not that it was only and exclusively done because of it.

Fuck this guy. I was born into a family with $0!! I still got depression, horrible things happened to me because I was poor and my family could not look after me AND because I am poor I cannot afford therapy. Seriously what an asshole that guy is.


alecgood17

Yeah this guy acts like he has seen both sides, when it’s very obvious he has only seen one.


BassSounds

He worked in his parents wine shop. Wow, what a horrible life. He optimized the layout, what a genius. He then struck gold by investing in a small company named Uber.


OceanicMeerkat

I'd say being handed a $3 million family business out of college is a pretty big head start. That makes it a hell of a lot easier to "strike gold" in the investment market when you have a bunch of money.


Ill_Consideration_72

Heard it was $60 million.


OceanicMeerkat

From what I've read, it was $3 million when he got it, and it grew to $60 million from there. So he did the rich person thing successfully.

b4-9in

I get his point, but I need money 💰


annnoyingness

Yeah, no, seriously, I'm gonna need that money. Trying to tell me that I'm happier than you is just not gonna cut it.


Coyote__Jones

Saw a magazine cover yesterday that had a title "For sure cure to anxiety!!!" And in my head all I could think of was "some savings, not scraping together rent every month, being able to buy things I need when I need them instead of constantly having something on the 'save up for' list, knowing I'll be able to retire some day." I don't doubt that people at any economic level get depressed. But in most ways they experience freedom in a completely different way. I'm not free in the same sense the wealthy or even middle class are.


lll__l__lll

I don't get his point, because he is a lying asshole. >Socioeconomic disparities in suicide have been investigated in Asia [9–14], North America [5,6,15], Europe [8,16–19], and Australia and New Zealand [20–22]. In addition, two meta-analyses [14,23], one cross-comparative study of fourteen European countries [7], and one narrative review [4] have helped to take stock. In all but one of those studies, people in lower socioeconomic groups were found to be more likely to die by suicide than those in higher socioeconomic groups. https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0243895


ifiagreedwithu

He has no fucking point beyond, "I'm wired to the gills and cannot stop talking."


Biengineerd

His point is, "you wouldn't want to be rich like me, it's awful. Trust me. Be a happy peasant!"


riceisnice29

I dont get his point. If you’re a grown adult and you’re still that dependent on other people’s validation that your mental health is in decline you can just go see a therapist. Seriously, did any of these trust fund babies try that?


b4-9in

I think depression is something that’s more deep that’s that. Not having goals starts early in life. If they always felt like nothing matters, they don’t know anything else, destructive behaviors starts then. Edit: Clarification: depression comes for all, rich or poor. If you feel sad, tired…, ask for help.


Slubludoop

That seems independent of wealth tho. You can be poor with no goals


b4-9in

Agreed. Depression comes in all shapes and forms.


formershitpeasant

But when you’re poor you can’t afford treatment


Slubludoop

So rich kids are definitely better off. This dude is gas lighting


riceisnice29

I mean, I cant see how a poor person is less likely to feel nothing matters than a rich person.


BurtReynoldsLives

Here is an easy solution, fucking tax them. Jesus Christ I’m sick of wealthy people in America acting like they are persecuted. Think never being able to live outside your parents shadow is hard? Try living in your car for 3 months.


Remote-Boysenberry

Yeah when rich people moan about how nothing in life is better than working your way up, I wish they'd put their money where their mouth is. It should work like Prestige mode in Call of Duty. You max out at $100 million and then you need to give it all up to start again and you get a cool badge that people can admire.


BurtReynoldsLives

Yup. Or the Zelda wallet. You hit 99 mil and every other coin you get just falls out the wallet. Why people who work 40 plus hours for a living are okay with the ultra wealthy sitting on mountains of gold they could never spend like the dragon Smaug, I’ll never I understand.


DaizerDaizer

I'll take depressed and rich any day over depressed and poor


another_awkward_brit

Ok then, if having zero is so great give *everything* you own away & start over. It'll be great, right?


qegho

He's so amazing he would only end up making it all back within like 2 weeks. He's just "cursed" with success man.


yes_no_ok_maybe

This guy only half gets it. He sees how trust fund kids mess up their lives, while the people who started from nothing and became a success are hungry, driven, etc. but he’s failing to see the many more people who started from nothing and stayed there. It’s super difficult to break free from the cycle of poverty and he’s oblivious to that.


riffler24

I recently saw some of this guy's content and it's one of the most horrible, toxic, unrealistic worldviews on Earth. He tells young people to work 15 hour days 7 days a week, and that if you aren't succeeding it's because you aren't working hard enough. It's literally encouraging teens and twenty-somethings to fucking grind until they drop so they can *maybe* make money. And when inevitably most of them don't become uber rich entrepreneurs it's not because they didn't get lucky or have the right timing(how it actually works), but it's that they didn't grind enough. This guy grew up rich, became even richer, and now makes people pay thousands of dollars for him to tell phony aphorisms about "getting on that grind" or whatever. He literally told a story about how he didn't participate in sports, or hang out with friends, or go on dates or live life because he was busy working on his "grind"...and he wants you to believe that's a GOOD thing and not literally the saddest thing ever.


KlauseBenidict74

Had to shoot the family dog because we couldn't afford euthanasia after he was hit by a truck but it was fine because I was so happy about not having 100 million dollars that I didn't even care.


kiloheavy

Fuck this idiot.

Can you imagine someone with 100mil simply for being alive telling you that *you’re* the lucky one for being born to nothing? *I am untethered and my rage knows no bounds!!*


H_H_420

What a fucking dickhead this guy is. He’s one of those pricks that just runs his mouth, saying pathetic narcissistic crap until he traps himself in the corner with nowhere to go except Twatsville, along with his twat statements. He craves attention by saying the most insensitive and ridiculous things, trying to convince you he’s right, but you will never understand, because (in this case) you weren’t born into $100m. What a condescending cock.

What a ridiculous statement. “I care so much about what other people think of my accomplishments that I consider being poor to be a better alternative”. “bUt YoU wErE jUsT HaNdEd SuCceSs!” Ouch. I guess I’ll ponder that thought while I drive my paid off car to my paid off home where I can relax and not worry about money.

Poor rich trust fund people lol


DMugre

lol that's such a trust fund baby argument ​ we out here triying to avoid starvation and shit, but yeah, your problems far outwheigh ours.


hyperbolic_dichotomy

What a clueless asshole. There are lots of levels between nothing and trust fund baby.


coenaculum

At least he wasn't wrong about the cocaine I guess... 8 years sober, if I was rich back then I would've been dead by now. In conclusion, not being a rich drug addict saved my life.

God, how can you actually be so out of touch. Fuck Gary Vee

The problems with all these people is that they equate accomplishment with getting wealthy. They don’t have a need to acquire wealth, and since that is what they were taught success is… I am successful in my field, which fortunately means I have no immediate concerns for money. I’m not wealthy, but am perfectly comfortable. My success in life is apart from that. My success in my career is my own. The three things are related but not the same. This clown encounters spoiled brats who have shorty parents and makes the idiotic conclusion that being poor doesn’t suck. Being poor absolutely sucks. The guy is a clown.

I’m a low level trust fund baby. Helped me buy my first house and I filled it with plants. It makes me very happy. I also have a 9-5 job that I adore. Never tried drugs, barely drank. Maybe I’m doing it wrong or maybe my parents taught me that money is a tool and you can use it to make your life comfortable and help make the world a better place.


-Bravery-

Yeah you need more coke and parties my friend, your doing the whole rich thing wrong! For real though, I’m glad you were responsible and found happiness yourself!


lexijoy

I did blow a bunch on art school, similar ROI to Coke.


lll__l__lll

>Maybe I’m doing it wrong No, you're fine, this guy is just a lying asshole.


DiscoMagicParty

I will trade my life savings for anyone in this completely imaginary scenario literally right this second.


Treesaregreen2

If he’d rather have zero why doesn’t he just donate it all? Actions speak louder than words.


Snurbalurb_o

That guy is an asshat


AkonsChappedLips

God Gary vee says some dumb shit but wow this one's gotta be top 2


scooba_dude

So because he is surrounded by trust fund cry babies he thinks it's hard to have financial support from birth.


fearphage

Damn, I guess I'll have to cry on my private flight to Dubai again. Shit.


bakochba

Is there a law that requires you to use your trust fund money instead of becoming your own man/woman and starting at nothing? The "I don't feel like it" Law


vgaph

I, for one, am willing to accept the burden, the partying and the cocaine, that comes with unearned wealth. Please DM me for my Venmo.


djabr0ni

Him: I'd rather have 0 dollars. Me: I could help you with that. Him: ...no


berkeleyjake

I'd still rather have a lot of money and a trust fund.


HeyimJohnny21

Good I'd love to be a trust fund kid


jackie_blue6

I wanted to downvote this because I hated it so much😂


_NamasteMF_

So- he obviously supports a very high estate tax, and changing the laws around setting up family trusts… right? oh… he inherited millions. Got it.


Icangetitexceptme

Did he say doing blow till you die is bad?


rhastie82

They say, "money can't buy you happiness." I'd say it sure as hell wouldn't hurt.
