10 Things People Who Were Born Rich Will Never Understand
You know what must be nice? Being rich from the moment you’re born and never having to worry about money – not even for a second!
Incredibly, some people get to live this life, and it’s a life that the majority of us will never be able to understand. By the same token, though, there are plenty of things about life that a person who was born rich will never understand.
On the list that follows, we’re going to look at 10 essential things that no person born with a silver spoon in his or her mouth will understand about living life. If you, like the rest of us, have been living the daily struggle to earn what’s yours, you’re going to appreciate these hard truths.
1. Public School
When you’re born rich, there’s one thing your parents simply won’t be able to tolerate the idea of, and that’s sending you to public school. From a young age, your parents will be grooming you for that big-name college and the professional career that surely awaits after.
Not born rich? Well, unless you’re uber smart and secure some kind of private school scholarship, you’re bound for public school and all that it entails. We’re not saying that public school is bad, but it’s definitely a bit more “real” than the experience you get at a private school.
2. Owning a Crappy Car
No matter how rich or poor you might be, there’s one rite of passage that virtually every teenager goes through. That would be turning 16, getting your driver’s license, and getting the keys to some kind of car… Ah, those were the days!
When you’re rich, your parents will generally spring for a new car – one with all the latest bells, whistles and safety features. However, when money’s tight, poor parents can’t afford such things. In fact, you’ll almost certainly need to buy your own car. Either way, you’ll likely end up with one of those used, beater cars…
(Which, if we’re being honest, are almost always cooler.)
3. Flying Coach
Flying is one of the biggest pains in the neck, especially if you’re travelling long distance. When you’ve got the money for it, though, you can afford to spring for first-class. This means plenty of legroom, plush leather seats, drink service, and so much more.
Not born rich? Well, then you’re like the rest of us, scouring discount travel sites for the very best rates – that is, if you can afford to travel in the first place. You’ll endure the strained leg room, the guy passed out on your shoulder, and connection after connection. Ugh…
