I had a thought over the weekend. I was stopped at a streetlight and a Rolls Royce pulls up next to me. I thought to myself “man this guy has it made with his money, fancy car and good credit score.”
I then thought to myself, “having that much must suck a little bit.” Think about it! All of your friends, not to mention family, hitting you up for money all the time, you’re in a higher tax bracket, and worst of all, you don’t get the thrill of not knowing if you can make rent each month.
So I put together a list of privileges the Rich Man has and what the common New Mexican Man has.
