Did you inherit your wealth or fark over a lot of people to get it?

#6: "I have a boner"

Don't just blurt out that you are aroused. That makes some people uncomfortable and takes away the challenge for others. The wealthy are not entirely different from the people you meet in roadhouses along I40. Let them pursue you. They like that.

I have troubles with the term "rich", because I don't immediately know how the person using the term defines "rich". Lots of wealthy people effectively live paycheck to paycheck (possibly from a trust). Some multimillionaires are just quiet elderly folk who have owned property for 5 decades and not spent all their rental income.

Anyway, my advice: avoid the staff of wealthy people. I'm not talking about the blue-collar workers (they are super cool, you should be nice to them). The people who exist directly next to wealthy people are too often horrible human beings. They often believe that being adjacent to the upper crust means they might break into the crowd eventually (they won't), and they treat those they view as being of lower status as sub-human. Beware these snakes.

I take it "Those botox injections make your face look like an asshole" is still acceptable?

Anna Bey who offers 'luxury lifestyle' courses teaching women 'how to bag a billionaire' has revealed the five things you should never say to 'rich people'

If she had bagged a billionaire, or even a millionaire, she wouldn't have to make a living, so what the hell does she know about it?

She's a gross person, but the people she rips off are by definition equally gross, so I guess I'm okay with it.

I'm not. The fact that people can make tons of money by being shiatheads, even if it's to other shiatheads, pisses me off.

Look, escort work doesn't translate directly into marketable skills outside the industry so you have to get creative.

Afarkingmen. I think half the animosity toward rich people, executives and the like is actually derived from interactions with their petty name-dropping assistants.

I think it's mostly still justified. You don't become "trailed by snakes" rich by doing honest work / not stepping over a few bodies.

1-4 is good advice. 5 is stupid.

Best thing is to relax and get a feel for this particular person's quirks and features before you take them on a test drive.

1. Don't ask 'what do you do?'

Fark off, that's perfectly normal and appropriate conversation.

2. Don't say things to impress or pretend you're on their level

Two separate things here:
First, don't attempt to impress other people.  This is good advice (doesn't matter if someone is "rich" or not).
Second is to not pretend to be on their level. This is hard to read - on one hand, you shouldn't claim to be something you're not. On the other....what the fark do you mean by "on their level" - people are people, we're not in a caste system where someone is better or worse than another based on wealth. So this is either good advice or pretentious bullshiat, depending on what was meant.

3. Don't ask questions about their money or possessions
4. Don't talk about your money or possessions in a negative way


Good advice.

5. Don't say 'nice to meet you'

I would say no such thing if I met you as I wouldn't want to lie to you.

Really? We certainly love to tell ourselves that we don't have a caste system here, that we're all social equals.  But it's not true at all.  We're pretty damn good at picking out working class people from middle or upper class people based on dress, appearance, how they talk, even things like interests.  Hence all the entertainers who make a big point of "keeping it real" or "remembering where they came from."  (And that's setting aside all the race issues, which are also tightly bound to social status)

The middle class in the country does what they've always done:  they ape their betters using mass market products that promise results close to the tailored stuff the wealthy buy.

We've got tons of evolutionary machinery in our brain that is keenly attuned to determining social status and figuring out our position in the pecking order.  You can't tell me that a mere 250 years of liberalism in this country is going to wipe that out.  Pretending otherwise is to be willfully blind.

"Does this smell like chloroform to you?"

"So...how would you like to go, quick and painless, or slow and painful?"
