This thread is full of chaos. First of all rich people will not argue for a measly buck. Well at least in NYC. Second of all, a gas station is not a place where you can accurately assess people's wealth. A fancy car... wow fancy that, he must be rich. That logic is full of fallacy. There are many people who will invest their money in a car just for status elevation rather than a decent house because people will see them in a car. Especially the people whom they are driving to meet. Believe me I know this mentality because Koreans are exactly like that. People much the wiser would rather invest in property because 1) the property values usually don't fall too much 2) it always has a chance of going up. Car values go down as soon as it exits the dealership.

So basically, those people who argue over a dollar are most likely those who need the extra money, thus not really considered rich. Truly wealthy people have better things to do than fight over a dollar. Hey, they are looking to get the big bucks not a measly geedubya. If you think about it, will saving 5000 dollars (let's be generous) by bargaining make you rich? Sorry, not really. Real wealth is made through either a good salary, aka good employment, and also good investment portfolio. And believe me, most of the wealthy people who got there by their own efforts are not stingy nor are they dumb. They are wealthy for a reason.


exactly, there are people who will mortage their house just to buy a friggin mercedes, and being stingy is totally different from being rich.

you put my thoughts into words.

Kinda true, my friend lives in a 2 floor house, (including a basement)
they are so conservative, I was surprise to see her father picking up soda cans!
But they keep saying that the hosue is not fully paid

I say, it doesn't matter you still live in a huge house.

I live in a one bedroom apt with 4 family members
and my parents buy w/e
doesn't even care about price XD

I've been average, rich and am currently poor.

I've never in my life asked for discounts.
Posted 7/29/08
Yes its true I worked in a jewellery store.
Rich people will bargain down to the last cent, they even think because they are rich they have a right to talk down to you, where poor people will just accept the price and pay it, without hesitation.
Rich people are just greedy for money that's why they barter for everything.

cuz they're used to getting what htye want.
but u sure bout that? i've seen poor people haggling prices and trying to cheat people's money.
like this one time a lady walked in this take out place and paid 5 bucks for some shit then came back later and was like i can't find my 10, i think i gave it to you and started jibber jabbering. do people really need to go all that way to "save" money?

Lol I'm considered rich and I don't do any of that bullshit, I've been broke for half my life and now that I'm actually making money I feel like it's the responsibility of those more fortunate to take care of those less fortunate. It's stupid to ask for a discount when you don't need one, just let the extra money go, who knows it might help somebody out in the end.

I still look for good deals though, I buy stuff that's on clearance and buy stuff that's cheap still. I just don't ask for a discount on non-discounted items.

I'm in the poor class as well. The customers that I deal with are usually old and very picky. They want a lot, but only pay a little.

Is it me? I hope is isn't. But seeing how you posted in this thread and the fact that I'm pretty much the only person who contradicted all the other posts in here indicates to me that you are pointing in my direction. I am also not very active as you said. It also doesn't make sense for you to call out an anonymous user out of no where so I'm going to assume you are talking to me.
First of all I never claimed to be rich. Maybe I am maybe I'm not, why does it matter? I am taking finance, business and economic classes in my university. In other words, I know money and how it works. I'm also around a lot of successful businessmen and entrepreneurs. If it's not too much to say, I'm doing pretty well for myself as well.
If that comment isn't directed at me, sorry!

im between middle to rich,and i interact with poor i guess.

personally to me i find that the rich ones are the most spoiled,irritating people.they dont cherish many things.They dont know what hardships others go through,and are inconsiderate and think they're elite =.=


Hello!

Well i am what you call a rich person if you would see how my living conditions are so to speak, its not that you have money makes what you are, its how you are brought up by your parents, or by people around you, so those are inconsiderate people that has no respect.
As for me i am rich and i interact with those 'lower of me' if thats how you put it but i call them people, they are no different from us, plus i find them more funner to be with.
