  • today is money hungry. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If we say that

  • here. My grandfather has a 20 year old girlfriend. I don't believe she loves him.

  • I think she is just a money hungry gold digger. All right. Remember we use the word gold

  • digger, especially for like you know when young women or at really anybody that

  • goes like when there's a big age difference between one person and the

  • other person. And of course the older person has a lot of money and you think

  • they're just marrying them you know hoping to get their money in the near

  • future. Then we say that person is a gold digger probably especially used for women

  • more than men but that's what a gold digger is. So you could say a

  • money hungry gold digger. Okay. Number two. My money hungry landlord tries to raise

  • is up. So that's a big jump. So you might complain about a landlord in that way.

  • Number three here. All that money hungry politician cares about are people that

  • will give him large political campaign donations. So he only cares about that. He

  • doesn't care about the regular common people. Yeah. So we say he's a money

  • hungry politician. Okay. Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your

  • time. Bye-bye.
