I've recently encountered a major amount of snobbery.
People that are too good to shop at walmart.
Too good to shop at DI.
Regardless of the exact same items (I'm talking Brand Name Items) being sold at Walmart for 1/2 the price of Babies R Us.
The same people that would never wear a moisenite regardless of it being indistinguishable between a diamond.
These people happen to be the people that have either declared bankruptcy, have a great deal amount of debt, or do not own their own homes.
When I talk to these people I get the "That's not good enough from me" attitude and I can't understand it, mostly because I know that they have no money.
Those that have money, do not have this attitude.
I know books have been written about this- The Millionaire Next Door and Suzy Orman talks about it in a number of her books- those that live modestly have more money, but it's starting to drive me crazy.
It's as bad as unwarranted arrogance.
But then again, it's not like congress is much different.
