Quite a few including some family members. Some of these rich people do many of the things which poor people do like shopping at thrift stores ;-)

Any family earning at least $422,000 a year ranks among the top one percent of earners nationwide. However, as income levels vary by state so too does the amount it takes to be a one-percenter.
I don't think the OP is a bot. Maybe he/she is just a young bored person like Azureth, Serious Conversation or Magic Qwan ;-)

A truly rich retiree would not think that "have been on 4 £5000 holidays and spend £200 a month on bus travel " are things which rich people do ;-)

I don't. Both legs at once, sitting on the edge of the bed.

We spend 3 months a year in Europe and live oceanfront. And have 100% health coverage. And a maid.

On "poverty" level income, LOL. That part is my brag.

A 1%er is considered to be someone who has assets of more than 10 millions dollars and income exceeding $500,000 a year. Nicholas Cage only has assets of $25,000,000, not a lot for a famous movie star, but with his yearly income, it still makes him a 1%er.

I always said, if I won the lottery, I would hire a driver to take me anywhere I wanted to go. This past spring, I decided to splurge for once, so I hired a driver to pick me up at my house and drive me the three hours to my sister's house, pick me up a few days later, and deliver me back home. It felt like a real luxury to me, and I loved not having to watch for exits or worry about traffic delays or weather.

I saw the Poor person post as well.

How do you know that this is a robot?

Do moderators know if someone is a robot?

How do they mine data?

If I was a truly rich person, I would need body guards for my children.

I now clip coupons for more upscale restaurants and take advantage of discounts from higher-rated hotels. The quality of food I cook at home has increased as have the quality of amenities for the home. Also, I drive a more expensive car. I still find it difficult to splurge.
