On the surface, it's easy to point out who the affluent people are in the room.


Rich folks may wear designer clothing accentuated by lots of bling and make a dramatic entrance after pulling up at an event in a Lamborghini or BMW.
But some people who are well off but are less ostentatious give off their wealthy vibe with a certain type of attitude or behavior.
Curious to hear examples of that je ne sais quoi rich people give, _--__-__--- asked:
"People Explain Which Behaviors Absolutely Scream 'I'm Rich'"

It's about time.

Time Is Money

"Spend money if it saves you time. Time is more valuable than money."

"Every time I go to State College, PA, I accept the $25 fine for street parking over night. It costs $30+ to park in one of the garages overnight. On top of that, said garage is still like a 30 minute walk from where I stay. I'd rather spend less on the parking ticket to park right next to where I'm staying lol."

The Difference

"Poor people trade their time for money. Rich people trade their money for time."

Not Dwelling Over Decision-Making

"Not thinking twice, when making plans, about whether you can afford it."

It's about attitudes.

Missed Payday

"Not noticing you haven't been paid in two months."

"I work with some people that pull in 20k+ a month. We had one come in mid March and said 'I don't think I've been paid since December.' Sure enough two months didn't pay out for some reason."

"He wasn't even mad and just kind of mentioned it like he was talking about the weather."

"If I miss A paycheck I'd notice on payday."

This Speaks For Itself

"Money talks, wealth whispers."

"This is exactly right. My ex's family were obscenely wealthy, the type that has a 'smaller' yacht that's a tender to the main yacht because it doesn't fit in many marinas, two private jets, multiple mansions. They dressed in an extremely normal way: classy and well put together, but almost boring.I love the photo of Gates, Zuckerberg, and Buffet with the caption: '$300bn in a room and not an Emporio Armani belt in sight'. This is right on in my experience."

Prime Example Of Chill

"Sometimes? Nothing."

"I know a man who's the kind of rich where it took him only a day or two to convert more than a million dollars to cash (not, like, physical cash, but the liquid asset) to buy one of his kids a house."

"He drives a rather beat-up old Subaru, when he's not riding his bicycle instead. He wears jeans and polo shirts. His watch is a <$200 digital watch - wouldn't bother wearing a fancy expensive analogue watch, all they do is tell the time, what's the point? He's lived in the same house for 50ish years."

"The only real tell is the air of total chill he has. He's not worried about much. Money insulates you from really a lot of stress."

Picking Battles

"They will never complain about the cost of something but will nit-pik the quality of work to death."

Fancy Taste

"Buying art. And not Instagram art, but gallery dealer art."

Pie_is_pie_is_pie

It's about appearances.

Not Dressing The Part

"Dressing like a hobo inside exclusive clubs and be served as the most important person there."

Designer This And That

"Working at a luxury resort, one thing I've noticed is that the people who want to give the air of being very wealthy will have lots of designer patterns on their clothes and accessories, like Louis Vuitton print, but almost all of the truly ridiculously wealthy people will basically wear nondescript leisure wear and really plain looking clothes (like plain jeans and tees with no logos)."

FartAttack911

Basic

"The most expensive car i've seen in my life, dude parked got out in jeans, basic all star, and white t shirt. No patterns, no logos, nothing."

Sighting Of An Apple Co-Founder

"I worked at a gas station in the 90s when Steve Wozniak would come in to get gas. He dressed in shorts a tshirt and flip flops and drove a $120k car."

It's true about what some of the Redditors expressed about wealthy people who don't sport fancy labels.

Fashion is a statement after all, so it makes sense that people who want to get noticed choose to be visually loud, and that might include wearing clothing from brands not found at your local mall—if those are even around anymore these days.

But just because a person arrives at a party decked out in Yves Saint Laurent, Burberry, Hermès, or Chanel, it doesn't always mean they are financially loaded.

They want to create the illusion that they are posh when the opposite is true.

I eat just about anything, but can't say I'm a fan of okra. Might it have to do with the way it is typically prepared, at least in my experience? It's slimy. It shouldn't be. It would probably taste better fried. But I have friends from the South who swear it is heaven on a plate.

But there's more than food that's disgusting. Like... why do people idolize Joe Exotic, the Tiger King? He's a sexual predator and a criminal. I know we all needed something to watch during lockdown, but damn. Don't tattoo his face on your body!

How do you tell if someone has a crush on you?

It's not always so easy, and many of us will fumble our way through it. Perhaps our only experience with navigating crushes comes from John Hughes movies (which I don't recommend following).

Oh, and while this isn't a Hughes movie, I would not recommend doing to one's crushes what the nerds do in the terrible Revenge of the Nerds.

Looking for advice? Look no further. You can thank Redditor chaitea_lexax who asked the online community,

There is a lot to hate about the world today. It seems like around every corner, awful news foretelling the end of the world is playing on every screen.

And we are expected to live in the middle of this? 2020 saw the rise of the term "doom scrolling" because the news about the world was so grim.
