I'm curious about people's envy of wealth and wealthy people.

There was a post on Facebook this morning taking about that huge new house being built in Ironwood. There were comments like, "How many kitchens does one family need?"

Why are people like that? And, how much wealthier than you does one have to be before you consider them rich?

I bought a new Corvette once, and about half the people I know would say, "Well, THAT must be nice."  They have no idea what my financial situation is. Did I save up and pay cash? Did I have money given to me? Did I finance it with huge monthly payments? Nobody knows and I'm not saying. It's none of your business.

Just like that big new Ironwood house is none of mine. Don't be jealous of successful people. Be MOTIVATED by them. I am.
