    That's very true. There was a time Sheldon didn't bother putting his salary cheques in the bank and was happy to lend money to Penny for as long as she needed it. Amy told Bernadette she cared more about her work than earning a high income from a commercial firm. However, everybody has to think about affordability. Even Sheldon once said he'd live alone if he could afford it, although that would have been when they were all at the beginning of their careers. He liked the idea of being Raj's financial manager when 'Richie Rich (I don't know who that is ) rich' Raj fell on hard times. What struck me as odd was Amy's response of 'Sounds expensive' when she obviously normally spent money on her hair and clothes anyway,which are in the range of affordability for her income bracket.

    Personally, I don't watch The Conners or YS. All I've seen of those shows are the commercials. I don't watch YS because lt's different from what we've learned, from Sheldon himself, about his childhood. But, that's just me. I'm sure others will disagree and I'm good with that.

    Can't think of anytime he mistreated as in abuse. But she wasn't spared from his occasional condescending rants on multiple topics, as were other members of the gang. Try season 4 when they had the discussion in CalTech's cafeteria and Sheldon went on to get the many cats. I can't remember the episode off hand. There are many episodes to choose from with his condescension toward non Physics studies.

    I think the last thing they think about is money--they are so focused on science. This was brought up in the last YS. Georgie was interested in making money and Sheldon explained he just doesn't care about it. I feel they both don't give money much thought.

    Something still nags at me from the final episodes. Amy is gainfully employed, married to a man who is in a similar or even higher position. She drives an ordinary middle-of-the-range car and lives with her husband in an apartment hardly bigger than a bedsit. She never mentions having credit card debt like Penny. Shamy's only visible extravagance is eating out or buying takeaways perhaps more than low-to-middle income earners would. Considering they don't have much of a kitchen to speak of and they work a lot at home in a small space, I don't blame them. Amy doesn't think twice about going to Vegas so she obviously has enough spending money to call on at short notice. Even without the Nobel Prize she clearly goes to the hairdresser routinely - note her hair doesn't get longer or have split ends and occasionally it is nicely curled - and despite liking a bargain she does buy new clothes. Frumpiness doesn't affect the price. She also changes her glasses. These are normal things most of us pay out for. You've got to be poor not to be able to afford them. I know California is an expensive place to live. Academics aren't vastly rich either and in their early employed years might have their own study debts to pay off. However, high-flyers like Shamy are surely better paid than a good many other people who get their hair done regularly and keep themselves decently clad. So, why would Amy's first reaction to Raj's suggestion of changing her hairstyle and buying a new outfit be to wonder if she could afford it ? It's not out of the ordinary for her. Come to that, why would Sheldon's response to his Nobel money be to consider buying new trousers ? Have they had some recent enormous expense ? Is Sheldon still trying to raise those millions to prove his theory? What is the explanation ? In the absence of knowledge of what they're all doing now, it's bothering me, taking up room in the not-yet-discarded TBBT space in my brain.
