Recently, an Askreddit thread explored the following question: What's considered trashy if you're poor, but classy if you're rich? The answers are both hilarious, and sadly revealing.

1. Getting trashed in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. The only difference is the price of the alcohol. And whether or not the alcohol was distilled in the general vicinity of the cabin.

2. Having someone drive you around. Sure, I'm in the back alone and it's a limousine. But you add one stranger and suddenly it's the city bus and I have to put my pants back on.

3. If you are weird and rich people call you eccentric, but if you are weird and poor people call you crazy.

4. Day Drinking. A minimum wage employee can't enjoy a cold beer atlunch. Meanwhile the boss gets to have mimosas during a business brunch,beer at business lunch, and wine for business 'we went home early'.

5. Having a lot of kids. Bonus points for having one named Junior.

6. Inbreeding. Famously done by rednecks and royalty.

7. Having a dinner table made out of a repurposed door. It's arty and classy only if the reason you're doing it isn't financial.

8. Gambling.

9. Having animal skins and parts in your house. It's only classy to keep stuffed dead animals if you also have a lot of money.

10. Revealing dresses. Like what you would see on the red carpet vs. whatyou see at the red light district. Seems like the only differencesometimes is the setting.

11. Florida.

12. Eating snails. Coolif you're doing it in a fancy French restaurant, not so cool if you'rescrounging random slugs from the pavement and popping them in yourmouth.

13. Living off your parents wealth.

14. Multiple cars on your property. A garage full of sports cars is cool, but a front yard crammed with rusting junkers isn't quite the same.

15. And last but not least, Getting financial handouts from the government.

Are we being lazy or is it self-care?

That is what you should ask yourself first, before you judge.

Life is an arduous journey and a constant energy suck.

It was inevitable we'd find shortcuts to get by.

It's all about survival.

Redditor Batman_In_Peacetime wanted to hear about the times we just didn't care enough to try harder. They asked:

"What is a lazy thing you began doing when you realised you can live with it?"

Be it on a blind date, at a party where you don't know anyone, or sitting next to someone on an airplane, starting a conversation with a total stranger is difficult.

As much as we'd all like to be friendly, far too often we find ourselves at a loss for words.

It doesn't help that we generally have no idea of what these people's various interests are, making it anyone's guess how they'll respond.

But some have this problem solved, finding a go-to topic which is always guaranteed to get a response, no matter who you're talking to.

Redditor Blugged_Bunny was curious to hear what people thought was the best way to begin a conversation with strangers, leading them to ask:

"What is your go-to 'small talk' topic with strangers?"

Quality comes with price. That's a fact you can't escape. If you hire someone to fix your home, and want them to do the best job, you're going to have to pay above average prices. That's fine. Pay the people what they're worth for the great job they did. However, we live in a world where everyone is looking for their payout, even if what they've given you is less than ideal.

Don't overpay for any of these.

Not everyone is going to believe what you believe. Our own experiences and values add up to make us who we are. Without them, we'd all be the same amorphous blob of consciousness covering the planet in bland beliefs. You hold something in high regard, and that might mean someone else disagrees with you.

Hold your ground, and be ready to die on that hill, kind of like these people.
