These Examples Of 'Rich Kid Syndrome' Make Everybody Else Cringe

1 year ago

I grew up in Westchester County, New York which is one of the wealthiest counties in the United States. I saw a lot of kids who got cars the moment they turned sixteen, and people who got the newest cell phone the moment it became available. The truth is, of course, that most of these kids were not bad people. But I've heard so much nonsense over the years that I don't even process it anymore. Oh, your family just spent a month at your third vacation home because the other two are being renovated? Sure, of course, that all makes sense to me. 

It is crazy that this doesn't even strike me as weird anymore. I've been thinking about this a lot lately, particularly while on my family's private jet. It is a good place to clear your head, as I am sure you all know... Right?

At this point, he just wants to see how many cars he can get.
A kid in my graduating high school class was very wealthy. His parents bought him a Land Rover when he was 16 and he crashed it into a school bus. They bought him another Land Rover and he lost it street racing. Guess what? They bought him a Mercedes.

He's also open to showering in champagne.
Was a RA in college.
One of my residents was a rich freshman from Rhode Island. He lives on an island and takes a ferry into town.
Anyways, his first week, he asked if there was fresh water available in the shower. I didn't understand what he meant, but apparently he didn't like showering with city water and didn't realize it was everywhere he went. I was so shocked and didn't know what to say that I suggested he used water bottles to clean him. Yeah, he didn't last long.

I'm willing to best the sunglasses didn't last a week.
I'll fail if my monitor is too small. Yes, it does make sense.
I don't think that word means what you think it means.
Doesn't everyone have rich parents?

Money certainly isn't everything, but if you live a certain lifestyle, it's important to stay down to Earth and be respectful of those around you, especially people who might not be able to afford the same luxuries.
