15 Things Only People Who Were Born Rich Will Understand
It’s nice to be rich.
That is, most of us assume it would be nice to be rich. We really don’t know, because the vast majority of people in the world will never experience the lifestyle that is enjoyed by those who land in the ‘rich’ category. However, it seems safe to assume that being rich is better than being poor, at least from a “I-don’t-have-to-worry-about-my-next-meal” perspective.
Of course, those who are born rich really can’t relate with those who are born poor, and vice versa. Your life experiences, and your perspective on the world, are forever shaped by the kind of childhood you had.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at 15 things that only people who were born rich can fully understand.
1. The Importance of Pretty Food
To most of the people in the world, food serves one purpose – to supply the calories and nutrients that are needed to live. Seems pretty simple, right? Well, not to rich people.
No, for rich people, it isn’t enough to have plenty of food to eat – that food has to look pretty as well. This is obviously a ridiculous requirement by any measure, yet most fine dining restaurants are graded not only on how their food tastes, but also on how it looks. Yes, this is real life.
2. The Need for a Doorman
Opening a door – it’s not hard. However, for rich people, it seems to be just a bit too much. Thus, the existence of a doorman: a person who is employed with the express duty of opening and closing a door (along with possibly signing for a package or two along the way).
At the point that you can afford to pay someone to simply open a door all day long, it might be time to evaluate your priorities – and you also might want to practice on one or two doors for yourself in case the doorman has to call in sick one day.
3. The Embarrassment of Flying Coach
There is, of course, nothing wrong with flying coach. However, when you are used to enjoying the luxury of extra legroom and the other amenities that are found in first class, coach can seem like a slap in the face.
If a rich person ever is banished to the shame of coach due to overbooking, they will be sure to announce to everyone in coach that this is a one-time event – and you should not expect to be seeing them among the commoners again anytime soon.
