1. Have a friend who is moving to the Bay area. To work for a non-profit. Part-time. She didn't know what her salary would be.
2. Not hesitating to eat in a restaurant with no prices on the menu.
3. I cleaned huge houses for a living, and to me, it was the custom-built Lego rooms with cabinets -floor to ceiling -full of organized lego sets.
4. Not knowing the price of everyday stuff, like groceries or electricity.
5. Friend of mine used to run a ridiculously exclusive cocktail bar. He always said "The ones in the fancy clothes who look filthy rich are normally reasonably wealthy. The ones in jeans and t-shirts who look normal are normally filthy rich"
Basically, the truly rich people didn't see the place as anything out of the ordinary, so saw no reason to dress up.
6. Paying for everyone’s food/ picking up the tab (when done in a passive and nonchalant way).
7. If you use money to get time instead of time to get money
8. Suspicious amounts of free time to pursue their interests, travel, or just be out and about.
9. Spontaneity. Just talking about something or some place and doing it or booking it there and then.
10. Alan Clarke, a British politician born into a wealthy family, once disparaged someone by describing them as "the sort of person who bought all his own furniture".
11. I know it's not a big thing, but people who use really nice plates and silver cutlery very casually. I've seen poor people with mustangs. But I've never seen poor people eating with polished silver.
12. Going somewhere pricey and not looking at the total before you pay.
13. Owning a second house or a boat and not feeling obligated to use it heavily.
14. A Steinway concert grand piano in the living room (worth about $195,000) that no one in the household plays.
15. Retired with no debt before being in your 50s
16. A family member owns a lake house but always refers to it as “just a little weekend place” like it’s no big deal and everyone has one.
17. No logos on their clothes, but very well-fitted (tailored) and pressed/cleaned.
18. I used to know the price of a gallon of milk but now I don’t. I am not rich, but I used to be poor. I needed to know that price. Now we are blessed to have enough that if I need it, I just grab it without looking at the price tag I imagine that being rich would be similar but on a grander scale.
19. I work in the private jet world. Rich takes tons of photos getting on the plane. Real money just walks straight onto the plane.
20. Rocking socks and flops but sporting a 200k watch
21. Perfect teeth. It’s always the perfect teeth.
22. Maybe not quietly, but being able to afford college without loans, financial aid, or having a job screams money. Bonus points if the parents are bankrolling the whole experience.
23. Using the word Summer as a verb
24. Having a live-in housekeeper/nanny.
25. "I was out with a few friends of friends last year, and I was talking about how I was going to be forced out of the area I live because rent prices have increased by 15-20% in the last 12 months. One of the group piped up with the sincere, but dumb as f*ck, suggestion, "Why not just buy your own house?"
Cheers pal, never thought of that.
Spoke to him a while longer and it turns out his family are major landlords in the area and own many of the apartments within the area of the city I live in. One of the deciding reasons I can't buy my own property is, funnily enough, his parents buying it all up and charging so much for rent that being in a position to even save for a mortgage is a pipe dream, let alone actually getting one.
