"If it is any consellation just remember you may be inheriting some of that $$$$ from your 6 parents."
LOL! Funny you should mention that; I am Exector for two of them; the ones with the most cash-o-la! In fact, my Dad just blew close to $5K taking 4 of us to Puerto Vallarta, MX for a week. He wrote one check to cover it all. Yeah, he's hurtin'. Not.
Living well is the best revenge, right? ;)
Well I would venture without any fear of being wrong that todays generation are inheriting a hell of a lot more money from the dying geezers than those geezers did from their parents .
In fact if anything those geezers had their parents living with them as grandfather grandmothers .
And in addition I am willing to bet those geezers sacrificed a lot more to send the boomer generation to college etc etc
I remember growing up I had to pay board when I lived at home
In conversations with coworkers I found that a hell of a lot of those boomers lived board free once they got out of school etc and went to work
