omg. when i saw the thumbnail to the article, i assumed it meant that rich people would never say things like “peasants.” which i think is actually true. some of the really rich people i know are cheap as hell on the day to day stuff, and buy a lot of shit at costco. some people i know, living in a $7mil penthouse in nyc, actually have a lot of ikea odds and ends. of course, they have paintings by artists that are also in the moma, but they’re not splurging on EVERYTHING.
