I know schools have enough on their plates, what with parents expecting them to teach kids how to be decent human beings and all, but some financial literacy should be gone over at least yearly in one or two lessons.
I have friends who in one breath will say how they can't afford petrol til next payday, then in the next say they're getting a new car because "I'm paying off a loan already, adding to it wont matter much".
Yes, this is very frustrating to me. I know so many people who will whine for EVER about how broke they are, how they have no money for anything, and yet will somehow manage to buy completely NON ESSENTIAL stuff, even when they have important things that should be priority, like families! Ohhhhhh it really pisses me off.
