Bangalore: Netizens were stunned by a recent viral post. A techie couple from Bengaluru wrote on the Grapevine app that they made more money than their needs and wants combined. They also asked people what to do with all the extra money they earned.

The founder of the Grapevine app – an Indian platform where working professionals can have conversations about salaries, workplaces and finances – took X to share a post from a couple in Bengaluru. In the post, the techie couple said they were 30 years old and had a double income of Rs 7 lakh per month after taxes. They added that they had no children and had an extra Rs 3 lakh after all their daily expenses and investments.

The message generated several reactions. One wrote: ‘You rarely see people asking about spending options with 7LPM to take home. Buy a house, upgrade a car, go on a luxury vacation, make plans for the baby (in the future). Is not it clear?” Another individual said: “Maximize life experiences – Take more vacations. Maximize future growth potential. Invest more in public/private cos (or real estate).”

A third person commented: ‘Get divorced, give half away and then start over, at least have some motivation and purpose to work. Ps: 7L together is too small an amount to worry about.”
