I haven't a clue what rich people do, but I have always indulged myself and people have occasionally remarked I must be an only child. I've traveled extensively, had tons of plastic surgery, buy nice clothes and jewelry, and eat off fine china, crystal, and sterling silver, at least a couple times a week. Oh yeah, how about that swimming pool. Meanwhile, I do all my own house and yard work on my 2+ acres, plus my 3910, sq ft house. So.... boo hoo, so much for even imagining I am rich.

I show off a beautiful trophy wife.

I live in the biggest house in a gated estate, which my stepdaughter owns as an investment. We hire a gardener, who does the lawn with hand clippers.

I've flown around the world three times and visited every continent, in the past 5 years, rarely paying over $20 for a hotel.

We go everywhere by taxi/grab, although empty-handed, my wife goes shopping outbound by mass.

What do rich people do? Guess I’m not in that category. Oh, well!

Rich, to me, would be never having to worry about having enough money for my wants and needs. But humans being what they are, betcha there are rich people who worry about money. Cuz for some people, “enough” is an ever-increasing moving target.

Still trying to think of a rich-people thing I do. Hmm, once in a great while I splurge on ridiculously expensive imported dark chocolate or other treat. But since it is only once in a blue moon and I consider it a splurge rather than typical, does that mean it is NOT a rich-people thing to do?

Ummm, uhhhh, sorry can’t think of a single thing. Pretty middle-class, albeit in a DINK (or former DINK) way.

If I were rich, though, I would still lead a mostly middle-class life. But I’d donate MUCH, MUCH MORE money to some favorite “causes.” Anonymously, of course.

I tip very poorly.
And make 'friends' to get my kids into the best schools.

I keep my money in coffee cans buried in the back yard so banks can't have it to loan to people that don't re-pay them back.

I like to sit in my living room on an expensive recliner that I found in a parking lot after a tornado and tell dirty limericks to my cat. Sometimes he will chuckle, but always gives me a devilish grin.
