Money has a way of dividing people, even if those people try really, really hard to make sure that money doesn’t change them. The thing is that, no matter how down to earth somebody is, having a lot of money allows for little incremental lifestyle changes. Over time, those add up and, they’re just not in the same headspace as their less wealthy friends. Even if someone with money isn’t the type to purchase a private plane or a private island, they will probably…purchase rather than lease a car and…buy a house rather than rent an apartment. These are not luxurious lifestyle changes, but they are just different than what less-wealthy individuals experience. I’m reaching that age when some of my friends are becoming quite wealthy and I can already see in our conversations and interactions how it’s changed them a bit. Here is how your rich friends can be a bit out of touch.
Asking where the housekeeper is
I’ve had a friend ask who cleans my house, or when the housekeeper is next coming over. Uh…she’s already here because I’m the housekeeper. But wealthy people presume everyone hires someone else to clean their home.
