Desis Online Share Touching Stories Of What They Did With Their First Salary

I still remember the day I got my first salary. The cheque was handed to me in an envelope and I got jitters when I took it out. I had to deposit the cheque in the bank and after it got credited, I didn’t know what to do with it! I was utterly confused – Should I buy a new pair of shoes? Should I take my friends out to a nice restaurant? Should I just hand it over to my parents like they do in movies?

I ended up buying a few nice things for myself and eating a hearty lunch at my favourite restaurant. It was epic! And now, people online on Reddit are sharing what they did with their first salaries. The discussion began when one user posted a heartwarming story of having cold drinks with their first salary.

Having been born poor, the user’s parents decided to shift cities so that they could have a decent education and live a better life. It was during their bus journey that the user had cold drinks for the first time, but had to share with his other siblings. It was then that they decided to spend money on buying cold drinks whenever they start to earn.

“That day is clearly visible to me. That vivid memory of getting my first salary, I earned by giving tuition classes to junior students. I went to the grocery store just after getting the salary. I drank Coca-Cola and finished 3-4 bottles one after another. That was sweet. That was satisfying,” the user wrote.
