It is what it is. Some folks have money some don't. The strange thing is when you ask the people who have some money, they do not think they are rich. I have a buddy who made it big in the stock market and some really lucky property investments before the crash. When he hit 3 million, he retired at 50. His investment income is around 100K, and he thinks he is lower middle class.
This really happened last week. (I am thyinking of moving to SC when I get my early retirement)
"Mom what can you tell me about about living on Kwiaha Island?"
"Oh, that is where all the rich assholes live."
"Mom, you live on Kwiaha Island".
"But I'm not rich"
"Mom, yes you are."
"Oh...don't tell your sister."
"Mom, I think she knows."
"Why do you say that?"
"You bought her a house next to yours."
"Oh, but I'm not rich."
