Charming and welcome to BE! Bearing in mind that most people come on BE to ask if they are going to able to live on $60k for a family of four, it is surely understandable that you got the replies you did when asking about a salary that the vast majority of posters are never going to come near. Certainly no need to be abusive. Try reading the rules of BE. They're here. Both Rule 1 and 2 appear relevant.

Surely you couldnt possibly have thought that you may struggle on that salary?

Did you search online at all? Did you check rental prices? Average Aussie wage is $50-60k a year. And theres 20 odd million surviving already..

Over $100k puts you in the top 1%. So you would be miles above that. Its over 100k pounds a year.. After tax!!! (ignoring all the 2-3 times conversion rubbish)..

People get a little miffed/annoyed/jealous when some one asks a question like yours..

The mystery is, what line of work are you in to be worth such an amount of money, yet also be incapable of figuring out if its enough to live on.

So to be clear... YES ITS ENOUGH....unless you're doing a kilo of coke a day, or have a bad gambling habit.

Have a look at this thread and others like it and maybe you will understand a little - you are asking about an income of $225....
Any families in Australia living on combined gross income of less than $100,000 a yr?

Most of us dream of incomes of the level you mentioned, many of us will never even get half that amount.

jasus relax people. I had the good fortune to be offered what seems a good package......is that a crime?

Ok then, in answer to your question, yes, that amount should be enough for a family of three in Perth which I'd say you already knew because you knew it was a good package and good fortune.

You have a very strange attitude if you don't mind me saying. First post on BE is one guaranteed to get the sort or replies you got - it's a public forum after all. Your second one is telling those same people to f off and your third is telling us to relax. And you think it's us with the attitude.

I wrote this in the Rovers Return explaining what a drive by gloat was. You Madam, deserve a hearty golf clap.

In my ironman triathlon world the pinnacle race to qualify for is the Hawaii Ironman World Championships (it's very tough to qualify for, even at my age of 45 yrs I'd have to turn in a time of sub 9hrs 40 and I'm currently on 13.5hrs ).

So when anyone qualifies on the various forums people always put up questions that let people know they're off to Ironman Hawaii. eg: 'Which race wheels should I take to Hawaii?' or 'what sunglasses work best in Hawaii'. This is known as a 'drive by gloat'

What guidance and help were you looking for? Looks like you were asking - is 225k enough Yes/No. And thats the answer you got!

Really....it's a question that didn't need asking!

No I still dont believe it was a genuine question, it was either a wind up or a gloat as somebody suggested. Nobody could have the ability to command this salary, but not be able to do some simple sums, see what it might equate to and then need to ask this question.
