Mike & Molly: obvious drug problem

Recommended Posts

Mike and Molly, a veteran of the police force and a public school teacher, each with a decade plus of seniority, would have had a combined salary around $125,000 in 2010.  They had huge pensions coming and would need to set aside money in an IRA or 401k (in their cases, 403b).

They lived at Molly's mother's house where they either had cheap or no rent.

Molly used to travel a lot and had $17,000 in credit card debt in Season 2 when they're planning their wedding.

They should have been able to pay that off in 4 months, but two years later when Molly quits teaching and gets an advance check on the book she writes, Mike says "That will almost get us out debt," - but Molly buys a car.

They should have had around $100,000 saved by then because they do nothing expensive and even buy a junk car.

Where did the money go?  It had to be drugs!

Did it ever occur to you that maybe they were funding communist insurrections in Latin America?

What?

Dr Mickins is analyzing the finances of fictional characters on a television sitcom show. He has publicly accused them of wasting thousands of dollars on drugs. He better have proof to back this up or their lawyers will be calling his lawyer.

Gambling debt?

Mike was a big guy maybe they enjoyed expensive food and restaurants. 

That would be my guess.  Most people just waste money on stuff - often food and drink.  I never watched the show, but did they cook at home every episode? Did they go out to lunch, dinner, and coffee shops?  Lots of movies or stuff that retains no value?

Could be anything.  Maybe they drank and gambled it.  I know a family member that drank and gambled away BIG cash.  Tough old bird used to go into the worst area of SF and gamble away thousands.  This was back in the 70's.  

I like dots scenario.  Bad investments.  We have to be careful guessing others finances.

Here's the thing: this sitcom is set in Chicago, not Maryland. Much different pay. 

And seriously, who the hell can pay off $17,000 in debt in four months?

Sorry, Mick, but you need a hobby. Analyzing the finances of a couple from a silly sitcom?

Let him go.....I'm looking forward to have Mickins analyze AL Bundy's finances. 

How can a shoe salesman making minimum wage, a wife that doesn't work with 2 kids afford to own a house in Chicago?
