LOL. That's honestly just my thought, but it makes sense.

Oh I am with you on that. I'm not a huge uptown fan. Crowded bars annoy me, along with affliction shirts.

It's a relative term used to describe anyone living beyond their means and projecting the perception of wealth for attention. It's not as though making $31,500/year immediately pushes them out of the category so even someone earning $75,000/year can be a 30k millionaire if they just have no financial sense. It's also not exclusive to men.

This is completely true as well. This article still makes me laugh. It's sad that it's 6 years old and still extremely prevalent.
