I have been trickled down upon by the 1%!

Yesterday in the mail I received the LARGEST dividend ever. Somehow over the years with changing jobs and what not I somehow managed to become the owner of 3 whole shares of Prudential Common Stock.

So each year for over the last 10 years I get a dividend check along with an offer to buy my 3 shares too. Typically the check is less than $0.50 but this year was special the 1% have to hide even more money from taxes and paying their fair share so I got a HUGE check this year courtesy of the 1%!

My wind fall is a whopping $4.80 with $1.34 withheld in taxes @28% BTW leaving a whole $3.46 of trickle down to spend!
Yeah me.

Oh thank you 1% for your generosity this humble peasant who in turn will trickle it down to the local food bank so I can try to help others.
Well the food bank gets money each month from me but seeing that it is the holiday season they will get an extra $3.46 this month!
Thank you 1% for trickling down upon me!

1. How generous of them!

Maybe you could put that money toward a new yacht or yet another mansion. You know, reinvest.

2. Do you want me to be greedy I already have 1 yacht

8. One yacht?

You mean one in new england, one in the carolinas, one in florida, one is southern california, and one in washington right?

Gosh, how would you be able to enjoy the sea otherwise?

5. Okay so instead of selling your shares for

anywhere from 30 to 100/share over the last ten years you prefer to whine about the dividend!

Whatever floats your boat!

6. Why are your dividends being taxed at 28% instead of the R$ rate of 15%?

Or is that fancy R$ 15% rate only for people who buy tax lawyers to protect their ass+ets.

7. Well I am sure it was nothing personal

Or intended ether.
But just think of the CEO or other members of the board...that have a million shares and those dividend shares quadrupled at least...that is who that money was intended for, not you.

9. Not sure if this belongs here, but I just received 75.00 from my internet, phone and TV provider

for being a customer. Been with them for 12 years, and get a "bonus" check every year around this time. I love my cooperative........they're the best.
