Oh, I think I just barfed in my mouth a little bit…

I am all about people doing well for themselves, but when you constantly have to rub it in other people’s faces that makes them look like fools.

In the words of Alicia Keys, “some people so poor, all they got is money.”

I find people like that so sad. I feel they must have something missing in their life to make them try to make out how good they have it/how perfect their life is/how much better they are. I would probably be agitated beyond words at her comments/digs/her letter. Ugh Either way so glad you are laughing it out and moving on with a positive attitude! Go you! 🙂

Just proof that money can’t buy class.

Also I know a girl like this. Some of her comments/convos: “I just love money.” “I have no idea what to ask my husband for, for Christmas. Anytime I want something I just go out and buy it!” Then rambling about how much he makes, blah blah blah. Ugh lol

Also she went on and on once about how her parents’ house has 11 closets. I told her I had no idea how many closets my parents’ house has because I never thought to go counting them. Ha!

Wow. That is truly sad.

Underneath that cold, hard, calculating, prideful shell is an incredibly insecure woman who likely would fall apart completely if she could no longer surround herself with the illusion of happiness that she has created for herself through her wealth and perceived superiority over others.

@megz06:  She sounds hideous! Good thing you don’t have to see her much- I wouldn’t even want to read her yearly update. *cringe*

@megz06:  I’m laughing out loud. I can’t believe these people exist ! It’s so annoying, especially since she’s not the rich one, she married into it. Poor Georges ! 

I don’t have anybody like that in my family, but I’ve met a few through work or college. I recall this girl in particular who was so proud to date a guy who earned a lot of money. All she could talk about was related to how much money he had. Once, a coworker said something subtle about people needing to make others know they had money, and she got so frustrated, she even said I don’t date my SO for his cash ! Yet, it’s all she talks about. Legit or not, if you don’t want others to believe you’re using him, stop focussing on his cash, end of the story. What does he like, how is he ? We never got to know. All we knew was he was ”perfect” and that he ”has a very good income”. And from time to time she came to work and started to complain:

– Oh we’ve visited this very expensive appartment we loved but the owner didn’t want to rent it to us, but my SO could BUY TEN LIKE THESE it’s so unfair ! 

Then buy it instead of renting it, and STFU ? XD

@megz06:  UGHHHH!!!! I can’t stand when people act like that! But I think it’s usually because something else is lacking in their lives so they have to keep highlighting what’s going well for them, and in her case it’s her money. She can’t take it with her so she might as well enjoy it now I guess

BARF Mary.

We had a family like that too. I wonder if they realize that people think they’re idiots?

Ew.  I would have such a hard time not being a total bitch or mocking this lady every time she opened her mouth.

@megz06:  Eww she sounds terrible! If I go that letter I would have ripped it up and threw it in the trash!!! Clearly she is a really sad person that material things and money are all thats important to her. Those things dont come with you when you die lady!!!

@megz06: When dealing with people like this I take great pleasure in “excitedly” and “politely” asking them questions about all these operas and travel destinations that just happen to require (it just happens that way accidentally, I swear 😉 ) a tremendous amount of historical and cultural knowledge until I have completely and thoroughly–in the most polite way, of course–exposed their absolute lack of knowledge (because people who go on like this almost always have a total lack of knowledge) to everyone within earshot.  It’s much harder to expect people to be impressed by your life when it becomes clear to those people that you don’t even understand your own life. 

She sounds absolutely vulgar, by the way.  I’m sorry you have to deal with her.
