Do trust fund babies have issues or is it the people who accuse them of not having to work for their wealth? The notions people have about wealth always interest/amuses me.
My uncle/cousins are wealthy. Look up the demographics of Leawood, KS and you have a general idea. They wear a nicer cut of clothing than I but I don't care and neither do they. I think it fun to visit their world but they have too many headaches as you are usually your own boss at that point.
One has a Porsche in his garage along with his mini van and Ford sedan. Another goes through used expensive cars which come along his way due to the fact he is a lawyer and his, as well as associates', clients need to liquidate holdings at times and cars are first on the block to go. He likes to pick them up for cheap and drive them around for a year or two. His brother, a screenwriter, owns office buildings in medical parks. He likes to buy used high dollar cars from around the country and have them shipped to him. You may imagine those of wealth might be above this but the wealthy like a bargain as much as anyone else - it's a game and he get some nice cars. One of my cousins is Mormon. She is an RN, her husband is a successful attorney for a mega insurance company in NYC. They live in a small and quiet but definitely wealthy neighborhood. They are always going on missions to Vietnam, China or Africa to help the poor in those regions. Their wealth allows them to go do that.

I have known or worked for wealthy people whom I wouldn't wipe my shoes with. Not for their wealth but because of the attitudes they display. Not all behave as such but some assume/demand too much.

This is what generally happens when liberals that rule the area wanted "change".
