This is exactly like the pretty girl who thinks everyone hates her because they're jealous, but really they just hate her because she's a b*tch who thinks she's better than everyone.

Man, you have work to do.

The way this girl talks to me just irks me. I make six figures and have been since my mid twenties, and have two houses paid off, and am buying a third house. They just got their first apartment in their mid thirties. I make more than both of them combined and then some. Heck, I pay more in taxes that either of them makes. For some reason I just want to shut her up. She really just doesn't know who she is talking to.

On the other hand, I don't want them to start copying me career wise or real estate investment wise (if they ever get better jobs), since he started copying everything about me a few years ago until I asked him to stop. If I tell them what I'm doing, they might start copying me. So should I just find a way to drop my income into conversation? Or hint that I make a lot of money by talking about my paid off houses and third home purchase? Or just let it go and quietly laugh and fume at the same time internally?
Obviously she lacks class and if you put her down or shut her up then you become just as classless. There are people in life who think they are better than others no matter what.

Read these parts of your post by themselves. See how this sounds? And you think SHE is condescending???

Yay! You're successful. Maybe she's just had some bad luck - likely given that she has a graduate degree (which, yes, is an accomplishment) and is working as a secretary. She's going to work every day and doing what she can. Perhaps her career been impacted by the poor economy. "Friends" aren't obsessed with rubbing it in when one is down on their luck.

It's funny, you seem jealous. I figured I'd get these kind of responses from the masses. I guess you don't get it either. There is a social status whether you like it or not. It's only those who don't have it that refuse to accept it.
Lol you have no social status. Big fn whoop you've paid off a couple houses. Nearly every one of my friends that graduated business school with me make over $100k. So what. Not something any of us even discuss. But you would "teach a seminar" to "share your strategy". Considering you are worth billions, I am sure it's a brilliant strategy .

Look, if she is talking down to you it is probably because you are somewhat oblivious to how obnoxious and self important you sound. She probably feels threatened and so is holding her education out as the one thing she hss that trumps you. My guess is you are each doing the same thing to each other. Try taking a step back and not taking yourself or life too seriously. Maybe the relationship will change.

Uh, I get it. My wife and I combined make almost 200k a year. It's not jealousy that you're inciting. You're coming off like a complete a$$, and that's probably why your "friend's wife" is "mouthing off" to you. She's probably tired of your holier than thou attitude and is giving it right back to you.

Just kiss your friend goodbye. He's not going to give up the wife's piece of pie for a friend. She's not going to shut up, even with the info you want to spill.

Why wouldn't you want them to copy your RE investment? For all that you complain about the 2 houses, one would think you would be fine with inflicting some misery on them.
