How do you know your friend is rich?

Economically similar people banded together, even the kids who were poor and had scholarships. My second school was thankfully not as diverse...it really only spanned from upper middle class to lower middle class, and there was some "layering," though not as much.

As you get into the world of work, the income disparity causes more of a rift, because people can't spend at the same level. I doubt the doctor hangs around the high school industrial arts teacher, unless they were really, really good friends as kids.
There are poor doctors and rich teachers though.

It will come as a complete shock to him but he'll be smiling from ear to ear.

That's it?
