The price of lobster used to be dirt-cheap because they were so plentiful. In fact, it became known as the "poor man's protein" among European settlers and it was often fed to the imprisoned and the enslaved.
But times have changed – lobster is pricey and considered a high-end meal. If you've ever heard someone complain about poor people on welfare who are enjoying a nice meal once in a while, you might want to educate them.
People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Seraphina_Renaldi asked the online community,
"What is classy if you’re rich, but trashy if you’re poor?"
"Being on a first name basis with a judge."
A spot on answer. They do they there are two justice systems: One for the rich and one for everyone else.
"Wearing a bathrobe all day."
It's the difference between looking lazy and looking... well, like Hugh Hefner.
"Someone else raising your kids."
Haha, isn't that the painful truth?! We all felt that one.
"If a poor person drinks..."
"Drinking in general. If a poor person drinks someone will say, 'No wonder they're poor, they spend all their money on alcohol.' The rich won't be judged for it if they decide to spend hundreds of dollars on a bottle of scotch because they're rich."
This is very true. Many believe that the poor should not be allowed to enjoy the finer things in life.
"Casinos. The biggest disparity is looking at the people in the high stakes areas that are roped off, and compare them with the people waiting in the breezeway for the bus, after they have blown their monthly income."
Casinos are depressing. They're not like the movies at all.
"Getting money from the government."
If you are rich it is called a bailout. If you are poor you should work harder. Love how that works.
"If you live in..."
"If you live in a tiny home it’s ‘eco friendly’ but if you live in a trailer you’re trash."
This is spot on. Trailers should not have that stigma attached.
"Buying old cars."
Those classy rich folk buying all of the ‘98 Grand Ams!
"Moving around a lot."
I don't think moving around as a kid is ever luxurious. It's just romanticized.
"Minimalism. Can you really call yourself a minimalist if you’re just too poor to afford stuff?"
Being poor, minimalism is very useful. It's also the only choice.
It's quite the world we live in, and the wealth disparity can be a lot to take in.

People give off cues as to their economic background all the time. The clothes they wear, the car they drive, how they spend leisure time; all of these things are serious clues into how much income a person has swirling around at any given time.
As such, when we see these people doing these things, we immediately get some information about them, which leads to assumptions.
"What hobby makes you immediately think 'This person grew up rich'?"
Here were some of those answers.
Hangin Round The Skies
"My grandfather was a country club type of guy."
"My uncle, who's incredibly wealthy, has the hobby of building and flying his own airplanes. (There are apparently kits? But he has also bought and repaired little 2 seater planes that went down)"-TumblrTheFish
"Years ago, I worked for Wrigley (gum company now owned by Mars) when it was still owned by the Wrigley family and William Wrigley Jr. was the CEO."
"My second day, I ran into Mr. Wrigley in the elevator but didn't know who he was. During our small talk, it came out that I trained BJJ (still VERY new in the US ~20yrs ago) and I ended up asking him what sports he played."
"His response? 'Oh, I play a little pick-up polo from time to time.' I can't even imagine how the hell a pick-up game of polo might materialize."
"I can't imagine a dozen or so billionaires out riding their favorite polo horse and just happen to run into one another at the park."-WebSmurf
"I had a £500 twin engined gokart that I ripped around the track every so often but we go in cheap/free as a mate did some work there."
"You see these kids rock up that probably would rather be somewhere else with these overbearing fathers who are trying to live their dreams through the kids."
"Screaming at them for just having fun and not knocking a thou off their lap time. The set ups, the gear and even the vehicles they transport their karts in are stupid money."
"We used to take their tires as they would one race and bin em but they still go for ages just fine for us. Recreationally if you just want to do it as a fun day out and hire. It's still expensive."-Mardanis
People will do what they love, of course, but will that thing send alarm bells that that person is absolutely loaded?
"Anything that doesn't match the climate of where they grew up. If they grew up in the desert but they're ace skiiers then I assume they had the money to travel a lot and own all the gear etc."
" I should clarify my statements are based on my experience in Australia. I was unaware that Yank geography had so many places you could ski close to deserts."
"In Australia there are only about 2 places you can do it and its super expensive. It was much cheaper in Europe, which is why I learned there, but growing up, the only people I knew who did it regularly were super rich."-Super-Noodles
"My fiancé was telling me a story about the 'exchange students' that lived with them and how they were so nice and would help take care of the house."
"I asked her why her exchange students stayed with them for so long, when all my high school exchange student friends had only stayed for a semester."
"It was at that moment she realized that she grew up with Swiss nannies."-mikenyle
The Peak In The Clouds
"Mountain Climbing in remote places in the world."
"Went to a work mandatory motivational speaker whose spiel was climbing Everest 4 times starting at age 22 and other mountains in Africa, Europe, and Asia. Guess I did not land the correct job out of college."-Galoot21

Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus
"As a diver, I can firmly say our sport has two categories of divers. You have tons of rich a**es who drive maybe once a year in some wonderful tropical location they flew to, but suck at the sport because they rarely ever practice."
"These are the kinds of folks who will show up with thousands of dollars worth of gear, but can't remember how to put it on. Conversely, there's also a big contingent of divers who are more working-middle class, and who dive wherever the hell they can locally."
"They usually don't have the most modern gear, but they get a good amount of practice in whatever lake, river, pond, or other body of water they can access locally."
"It still isn't a cheap sport, but doing a few days of diving a year gets a lot less pricy when you're not flying to another country for it."-ColdNotion
The money it takes to get ready to play these sports could have easily fed you for a couple weeks.
"Being in the upper levels of competitive gymnastics."
"My daughter is only 6 and it already cost us $350 a month (plus another $1k a year for travel and $450 a year for leotards, jacket, pants and bag)."
"If she sticks to it into her middle/high school years and keeps excelling we are looking at $1k+ a month for gym fees and booster club plus travel fees and uniforms (so probably closer to $1.5k+ a month when you factor that stuff in)."
"We are upper middle class and right now can afford it but I'm not so sure about when she gets older and once our other kid gets into sports too. You definitely have to have some money to afford it. It's like paying for college."-Poctah
"20 years ago, piano. They were stupid expensive and the yearly maintenance was too. Also, lessons."
"Now, you can get an electric one for $500 at costco and it will last you 20 years with $0 in yearly maintenance."
"Plus, there are so many online free lessons/inexpensive tutors, I am surprised that more people don't pick it up. It is more accessible than ever."-TooMuchCoffeeQ
"Readers/book collectors. I had a friend thru most of my childhood who had tons of books. Pretty much every week she'd go to Barnes & noble and get to buy 10+ books at a time.. for years!"
"Thinking about it now, her parents had to have been spending thousands a year. She never got paper back either. It was always hardcover and a lot of times author signed. About $20-$60 each book. That's a few hundred a week."
"Her parents even gave up their office to turn it into a book room for her when she was about 15 because she couldn't fit any more in her room. The walls had floor to ceiling bookshelves."
"Then there were a few rows of book shelves in the middle just like in a library. I always used the school and public libraries to check out the same books."
"A bunch of the times tho the libraries didn't get them in until months after she had already read them. By then she didn't want to discuss them."-TinyOddEarthling
To the Skies
"Falconry can be as expensive as you want it to be, with a much lower starting cost than you would think. I'm talking a couple grand including licensure to get started if you are crafty and then a few hundred a year maybe. I started in college and I worked part-time with not much spending money. The real cost is time."
"Example, I'm a master class falconer, I have all the gear I need. For $50 I can trap whatever bird I can find essentially, put some anklets, jesses+leash, and a bell on it, and I'm good to go. But then I need to spend about 8 hours a day with it minimum for the next couple weeks moving down to a couple hours a day for the next 4-5 months until I release it back into the wild."-IMongoose
"I used to work in the quilting industry (machine sales) and yeah, this. You can absolutely make a quilt with nothing but cut up old t-shirts, some sewing needles, and a vision. The people who were winning the $15k prizes in shows were the ones with a dedicated quilting room, a $20,000 quilting machine, a $2k long neck sewing machine for home, a $500 travel machine, and then also going to the retreats, cruises, and conventions to learn new techniques and try out the latest and greatest innovations."
"Nobody ever believes me when I try to tell them how big a business quilting is or how much money can go into it. I have a luggage tag someplace I picked up at a convention from a company that was advertising a quilting trip to Greece." -standbyyourmantis
"As a fencer, yes for the most part. My club had a financial aid application, but those aren't common. All clubs do loan gear, but having your own is much better. The upkeep is also another problem since gear breaks down."
"I guess to lower the cost, I try to do some repairs myself, but I don't have all the tools to do that. Unfortunately, I didn't grow up rich and got started through my public high school's team. When I decided I wanted to get into it more, the prices weren't great.
"Astrophotography. The telescope is expensive enough… but the camera…. sheesh…." -CrackedChelle
"I'm in a group called budget astrophotography and its people with sub 1k worth of equipment. It's honestly kinda impressive." -JordPlaysGames
House of Mouse
"People that go to Disneyland/Disney World at least once a year despite living several states away." -Pear_Jam2
"This is honestly an amazing example. To have such a good time at Disney World that you want to go back every year, or even multiple times a year, is INCREDIBLY expensive. If you just slum it like a regular person, as my family did, it can be miserable and exhausting. Tickets are expensive, food is expensive, lines are super long, rides are just fine but rarely special." [user deleted]

"Got scouted for crew during freshman orientation because I managed a 2km row in under 7 minutes."

Did you see any hobbies here you wish you had the time and money for? How about hobbies that you love, but aren't super rich and so can't afford the upper tiers of equipment for?
It's time for rich people games!
You know what I mean - that thing we all do where we daydream about what shenanigans we would get into if we had unlimited funds? This time, we're focusing on our homes... which seems extra poignant considering the housing crisis thousands of people are facing.
Reddit user "breathingsaveslives" asked:
It you were expecting things like a helicopter pad, a giftwrapping room, or a personal Starbucks ... well... keep reading.
"An outdoor brick oven for pizza. Then I'd hold pizza parties, instead of grill outs." - flpacsnr
"You don't need a lot of money for a pizza oven. I put together the jankiest oven for free and it gets above 700 degrees!" - myshkiny
"Definitely! And inside the pizza oven you could have a rotating stone baking surface, so you can have multiple pizzas gradually cooking as the stone rotates. Take a cooked pizza out, shove an uncooked one in, and it'll be cooked by the time it finishes its 360°." - green_meklar
"Swimming pool in the basement designed to look like a cave." - ilike7hournaps
"Complete with a waterfall that's fed by a river that flows through the house starting from a fountain in the lobby. Also, behind the waterfall is a bar" - BigSwedenMan
"We current have a pool - it's nice. It's a standard in-ground pool with a diving board and slide. If I had unlimited $ I'd rebuilt it into a kind of grotto with caves, waterfalls, bridges, fountains, etc. It'd be awesome!" - HouseRenovations
The Horror-Movie HouseGIF by Archives of Ontario | Archives publiques de l'OntarioGiphy
"A gigantic kitchen with plenty cabinets for all my things. It would include one of those industrial dishwashers that clean dishes super fast and easy. And appliances for whatever I want."
"Í would also get a nice, big dining-room for all the fancy dinner parties I would throw."
"My house would also have a garden with a lot of flowers, but not too much. I don't need bugs. I would have loads of flowers, and a raspberry bush. I would create a beautiful terrace to have tea on."
"As a kid, I sometimes visited this nice, old lady who lived in a big home. Her garden was amazing, with flowerbeds, and a terrace, and you could look at it from a balcony. All the way in the back was a wall, layered with raspberries."
"In the summer we were allowed to pick them, because this woman and her husband weren't gonna. Inside the house was kind of like a horror-movie: Confusing hallways, a dark attic, and a mysterious office. It was the ideal place for children to play hide and seek, and then finding a ghost or something." - ieatalot2004
Vacuum WallsVacuuming Freddie Mercury GIF by QueenGiphy

10 SecondsCat Chores GIFGiphy
"I worked at a kitchen for a little while and they had this dish washer that you just slid the dirty dishes on a rack underneath it, pull down the handle and it jet washed them in 10 seconds." - [reddit]
"I mean in a restaurant those dishwashers are practical but why would you need it at home? How often are you going to need 30 plates cleaned in a minute and a half?" - MountainCandidate0
"Family of 4, eating 3 meals in a day is 12 freakin' plates, forks and approximately 30 toddler cups because they somehow vanish into a black hole."
"Every day is a full load of dishes in the dishwasher. Miss one load and the sink is too full to get sh*t done."
"Full load of dishes in 10 seconds? Hell yeah!" - ihaveabibledegree

"They would all have a copy of the Player's Handbook and I would have two butlers, Jeeves and Alfred, to bring me rulebooks upon demand."
"Jeeves would double as the rules lawyer. Got a question? Ask Jeeves." - chubbychaseryou
So what would YOU put in your dream home? Sound off in the comments.
Life is a mere summation of your experiences; what you've seen and what you've done. Obviously, your mileage may vary, as people living in different parts of the world. or going through different upbringings, have a difference of opinion on certain matters. For example: Walking out onto a private beach with personal showers would definitely give you a different mindset about how public beaches are run and operated
Not everyone is rich, and if you grew up in the upper-middle-class to the wealthy class, then it probably showed without you even realizing it.
"People who grew up rich, when did you realize you were living in a bubble and not like everyone else?"
Just Pay Cash. What's The Problem?
"When I went to college and had friends who were complaining about student loans."
"Same here, I remember when I started seeing a girl at uni and she said she had loans. I asked her why she didn't just ask her parents for money... Grew up a lot that day."
Not Everyone Has The Same PocketsGiphy
"I'm not super rich, but things really hit home when I was with a friend and his mother started to panic because she couldn't afford milk for her toddler son (my friends little brother). I was just walking around with $40 in my pocket for no real reason so I gave her $20. She was embarrassed to be taking money from a 13 year old, but swallowed her pride for the sake of her children."
"I knew my friend wasn't as well off, but it never fully hit me what that meant before then. To me, being poor just meant someone couldn't afford nice things. What it meant to struggle with basic necessities like milk never really struck me before then."
All It Takes Is One Meeting
"Whilst not "rich" rich, I'm certainly solidly middle class - detached house, a holiday every year, new clothes on the reg, private schools from the age of 3 to when I left school at 18, a hefty allowance from my parents during uni... I was the least well off amongst all my friends so I just assumed I wasn't poor but I wasn't rich."
"Until I met a girl at uni who lived the first 6 months of her life in a homeless shelter and talked fondly of the council house her and her mum got to stay in for a whole year before they realised it was too big for a family of 2 (it was a 2 bed house)"
At Least You're Thankful For That
"I didn't grow up rich but definitely wealthier than the people around me. I realized we lived in a bigger house than most but I assumed that was just because it was 5 of us (three siblings and my parents) + pets. Anyway, I became aware of my situation in high school. I would message my friends to hang out but they said they couldn't because they didn't have spare money. Not even for pizza. That's when it hit me."
"I've never been in a position where I couldn't do something because money was tight."
"I thank my parents for that."
Yeah...Just Don't Think About It
"I didn't realize that not everybody had allowances in college. Especially not when your weekly allowance is more than most people make in a month."
"It still weirds me out, but I just try not to think about it or bring it up. Saves me a bit of guilt and a lot of sideways glances."
Count The Rooms. Then, Do it Again.
"The day I realised that we are a family of three and my parents bought a five bedroom house. (I later found out that was because they wanted more kids, but unfortunately that never happened). Meanwhile most of my friends had 2 bedroom houses, and quite a few shared with siblings."
When You What You Had Isn't What You Have
"I wouldn't say "rich" but well off or upper middle class in the 80's and 90's. I realized when we lost it all during the early 90's recession and we went from a big 5 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom apartment in a not so great part of town. Definite wake-up call."
Both Ends Of The Spectrum
"For me it was when I went to college and met my best friend. Here I am with my college being completely paid for by my father and my brand new apartment (being paid by my dad) and I figured that's normal. Anyways my best friend had to drop out because he couldn't afford it anymore and he actually lives in a section 8 apartment complex with his family of five. It really hit me seeing how much his family struggles just for the basics in life. It opened my eyes and humbled me. My family isn't rich but definitely upper middle class."
"Then I met my boyfriend who is from a more upper class family and I saw how for him it was normal to go in lavish cruises every break with his family and how nice and big his house is."
Not Just One, But Two
"I thought it was normal to have a second home until 3rd grade"
Some People Have To Make It On Their Own
"When I was a kid, I thought everyone's parents had money saved up for them to go to college. Or at least, everyone who wasn't "poor". It was a shock to my whole world-view in high school when I realized I was in a small minority and very very lucky. And especially in college when I realized how many people were working full-time on top of a full-time courseload to pull it off."
"We Took A Plane To Our Cruise."
"When I was like 11 my friends asked me what I did over 2 weeks we had off and I claimed I went on a cruise and then came back home and flew in a plane to and from the ship. They were shocked because they didn't go anywhere, kids always pointed out my luxurious lunch it was weird. Then I had party at my house and now to this day everyone calls my house a massive massion and I get teased being called rich."
Very Different Definitions Of What "Acceptable Gifts" Are
"When the mother of a friend of mine had to sit me down and explain to me that, no it’s in fact not normal to receive a boat as an elementary school graduation gift from your father... I had no idea that most people didn’t give their children things like that at that age. Was a real culture shock for me"
"How did that conversation start? Did you ask your friend why they didn’t get s boat and their mom told you other kids don’t get boats? What kind of boat? I’m so intrigued by this story..."
"Lol ok so my dad compensates loving his kids by buying us whatever we want since he’s never around. So when I was in 8th grade I, for some reason I can’t remember now, I became obsessed with speed boats. So naturally, my dad bought me a speedboat for graduating (because I could definitely drive a boat at that age???). I had a friend that didn’t go to swanky private schools, and didn’t live the same kinda lifestyle I grew up with. My dad didn’t really approve of us being friends but he wasn’t around enough to stop it and our maids always encouraged it so we hung out a lot during summertime."
"Her, her mom, and I were all out one day and I was kind of not subtly bragging about this top of the line speed boat I got and her mom had to take me aside and tell me that wasn’t normal and I shouldn’t brag about things like that because not everyone was as well off as my family was. Real eye opener for me."
You Realize Your Mistake And Try To Make Up For It
"When I was in high school and I lent my friend a few bucks and she had trouble paying it back. I knew that there were "poor people" around, but I was going to an extremely expensive private school and it didn't hit me till then that some of my classmates were on scholarships and not everyone could afford to buy the school lunch every day."
"It was a really sobering experience and I started trying to pay for as many things as possible after that for my friends (ex. Buying us all pizza, insisting on paying for peoples' lunches, etc.). Also, I stopped keeping track of who I was lending money to and simply gave it out. My parents wouldn't miss the money and my friends didn't deserve to worry about it. Unfortunately it caused me to earn a reputation in the friend group as "the loaded friend" and I started getting treated badly because I "just didn't understand." Just had to deal with it till I graduated. I try really hard to keep it on the DL now."
Not Everyone Has A House?
"I did not grow up rich. But my husband did."
"His sister once said "I didn't know everyone didn't live in big houses until I went off to college." Apparently she led a VERY sheltered life."
"I said this in another thread similar to this, but when I was younger I didn't know families lived in apartments. I thought everyone had a house and apartments were only for students."
The Magic Kingdom Tends To Be On The Pricey Side
"When I started talking in school about the pros and cons of Disney World vs Disney Land, and people were like 'YOU'VE BEEN ON VACATION?! LUCKYY'"
All The Best Games, All The Best Systems
"I was about 12, I think. When friends would come over they would go on and on about how big the house was and how I had more games and computers and sh-t than them (they especially seemed freaked out about the maid) and I just started to realize that I didn't have the same circumstances as most."
"They wouldn't all say it if it weren't true, I assume. I did have other friends with money, especially when I started attending private school, but I didn't realize they were well off either."
"...shame that it was at the expense of a person I loved so very much."
"The first time I went to my best friend's house. His circumstances were the exact opposite. His parents tried their best, but his dad often didn't have much work during the winter, and his mom didn't work outside of the home. They had 6 kids, and usually had things like pancakes for dinner. I'm in an upper class part of DC, with every toy and electronic imaginable, and he had none. It was a good lesson for me to learn, but it was a shame that it was at the expense of a person I loved so very much."
"I always had taken it for granted."
"I was talking to a friend about going to the town's public beach and they were saying how horribly crowded it gets in summer, and I suddenly realized (I was well into my 20s) that I had never had to go to a public beach because I always had at least two private family beaches to go to, one with cabanas, outdoor showers and space for cooking."
"I always had taken it for granted."
The Sky's Not For Everyone
"I have a family member that grew up with a private jet. The first time she flew commercial she turned to her family and asked "who are all these people on our plane." On flying- I'm no way rich but I was reading that the majority of the worlds population, over 90% didn't take one flight last year. I'm not sure if that's true, I'll look for the post, but that hit me pretty hard how fortunate I am to fly to see family sometimes."
The Friendships Don't Always Last
"Not rich, but upperish middle class. I went to a play date when I was 10 and his mom was single and they lived in a tiny apartment. I couldn't figure out why he didn't have a house or a dad. Sad to say I was so uncomfortable that we didn't stay friends much longer after that. Sorry Darren, you were a good dude and I was dumb."
"My friend was like that, for a while she lived in a two-bedroom apartment and shared a room with her brother. It took me a while to realize that they just didn't have a lot of money."
Life Hit You Early And Fast
"So this happened young. My dad worked in IT. International company, bunch of business trips to like every major country in the world and every major developing country. He got fired/company filed for bankruptcy. This happened whilst I was 8. Suddenly the only income we had was from my mum, working in the public sector for the state, helping mentally ill people. We went from expensive toys, Nutella for breakfast and expensive lunch items to buying birthday presents at basically dollar stores and hoping for hand me downs so that I could get clothes that fit me"
"Whenever we had a school trip, we had to save up 2 years in advance and ask relatives for help paying for those school trips, maybe not see relatives that lived far away for birthdays and other important things. My dad only got a job after 9 years of looking. My teen years consisted of hand me down clothes, worrying about social events and lunch. I still haven't grown out of the mentality despite my dad having a well paying job now. It's crazy what the 2008 crisis did."
Ask The Kids. They'll Always Know.Giphy
"Define "Growing up rich". My dad didn't start making real money until I was at least 10 or 11. We were comfortably middle class before that."
"I guess it started when we moved to a new city and people in my school would openly ask/tease me about being rich. I think the first thing I started noticing was that we took a big annual family vacation, usually on a plane, while many of my friends have never flown before."
Taking What Could Be A Negative And Turning It Into A Positive
"When my dad bought me a house to live in rent free, no mortgage. And realising that most people dont holiday in the algarve twice a year."
"My house is now a hostel/safe space for anyone I'm friends with/close to who needs a place to stay."

Money doesn't mean anything when it comes to measuring class, dignity and humanity. Those lessons seem to be lost on many wealthy degenerates. Showing off your wealth to a point that is extreme only exposes one's lack of self-esteem and taste. Nobody begrudges you for having it but there is no need to belittle everyone else with your (lucky) good fortune.
Redditor u/hughesyy94 wanted to hear how the other half is living a little too loud by wondering.... What are some of the trashiest ways you have seen people show off their wealth?
