Wealthy people don't have problems NEEDING to show their little blings that nobody gives a s..t about. It's about modesty and being content. I have very wealthy relatives who still owns 30 years old couch. Albeit a brand new mansion:). Haha
Hi KoreanAmerican12 - just to go completely off topic for a moment, you used the word 'there' as a short form of 'they are'. The correct way to write this is 'they're'. Sounds the same and is totally confusing I admit, but might as well get it right..
Rich and poor are relative terms, that is lots of people who are rich, still think of themselves as fairly poor, so they keep their money so they never get even poorer!
Also, being rich separates you from people (he says, as if he knows...). So, if you want to keep your good old friends, never tell them you've got money. My friend has made a lot of money from his stock options, so I asked him for a million or two - now he doesn't talk to me! Shame.. I'd have settled for one.
Maybe they don't want to get robbed.lol Seriously though because they want to con people out of their money so they can have even more to themselves. Also maybe there really cheap and don't want people bugging them for money.
