I work in a cubicle. Sometimes in an office where I have to deal with patients, but they're suppose to complain to me. I type down the c/o into my little computer and store it in their health records. If they're an employee connected with my facility or the hospital, I have to go and file their record. No money problems at all. Insurance, insurance...

Maybe it's because some rich people are truly greedy and want to save every penny they can get.

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 a year (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.


yeup. In Manhattan u get a bottle of gatorade for about 3-4 dollars and hotdogs about 3-5 bucks or more while in brooklyn and queens u get it about half price at the very least. Manhattan is full of cool stuff but u gotta pay so much @[email protected] .

Hm I have a rich friend who has 2 houses which r both at least 2 or 3 times my house's size. Always go's on First Class when he gos 2 the airplane. His dad has his own business and the wife helps and I always see him with clients so hes probably making that $. They r concerned about money and dont just slap each other with Benjamins or anything like that. They do try 2 get deals but I dont think they would fight over it or anything. BUT one thing for sure... my friend is spoiled as hell..... hes not snotty or cocky cuz in our skool, the snotty, wannabes etc. r put in there place.

In nyc there r many expensive places so every1 deals with it and I think its the other way around. Its actually the POOR ppl complaining about prices cuz u know.... theyre poor... -__-. I see it all the time since I live in a neighborhood which is between average and poor. Im about a little more than average but the condition of my house doesnt say so

But yea there r ppl who r actually poor but invest so much in a good looking car 2 impress. Its always like that around here. I am fine with all 3 but I dont like it if the rich brag about their riches...(sumtimes my friend does that... bastard), average is average, sumtimes they got money sumtiems they done, the poor.... always asking money w.e. we go sumwhere *sigh* Im slightly above average but I cant go around giving off money like paper.

Well I work in a pharmacy and 95% of the customers are seniors since we are surrounded by retirement homes. I can't tell whether they are rich or not but the pharmacy flyers include coupons that lower the price of many of the items in the store and the customers are very attached to them. And today was Seniors Day 20% off everything in the store ; you really need to be patient ^^ All this to say that the rich-average-poor class doesn't apply everywhere because I think coupons are far worst ;P

rich people are stingy
I live in an area where its mostly all rich people. I also noticed that they're real stingy with their change, even if its a few cents.
Meanwhile the not so rich type people dont care and walk away.


Rich people are indeed stingy! I had rich friends who got loaded wallets, and one day, I asked for 20PHP (back then 20PHP was a lot) from a friend, then she cried. I was like O.O Huh?

rich ppl are weird. there's a pretend richboy on CR who isn't very active currently but provided me with a lot of lulz


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!


not directed at you so apology accepted . search forums for smarty99 and read his posts. You'll fall of the chair laughing. He gets 100 million per week allowance, Eminem came to his house to sign an autograph and he has 500 Apple Macs around the world, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

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.




Haha i know,your're an exception ^_^ bestest everrr
