Do you know of any person that judges people on how much money they make, what they do for a living, and how prestigious their positions are in the workplace?

I’ve known plenty of people like that. My father's second wife, the gold digger, for example.

My soul is that of a boomer.

In age I’m further than the millennials.

I know very few that don't. It's a subtle thing with most, but if you know what to look for, it becomes obvious. I can't tell you how many people I've known who gave me the slight expression of disapproval when I've told them I'm a truck driver, or the slightly less subtle positive one when I tell them about my degrees or how much money I make.

Apple pie and capitalism. We're a curious mix, ain't we.

All liberals I know do that.

The left has a bunch of those running for president and their followers. They promote hatred for those that do well.

No, not at all.

Everyone I know believes (or pretends to) that everyone, regardless of position or salary, deserves to be treated fairly and well. It’s about who has the best sense of humor and kindness, for most of my friends and family.

My husband has a buddy that thinks he’s better than everyone else and more successful in life just because he has a good savings account and a good profession. The fact that he’s 40, lives with his mom, and the only thing he has to show for his money/job are a truck and a motorcycle. He’s had only one serious relationship in the 13 years we’ve known him. (She got tired of waiting on him to grow up.) He’s a functioning alcoholic and would do drugs if he didn’t have to worry about pop tests at work. The fact that the rest of our friend group are all married, own houses, don’t get drunk every night, can hang out without it being a party or bar hopping, and don’t pass out on someone’s couch doesn’t mean anything. Or that we have fun in other ways. Or that many of them have kids and love being parents.

Actually...he’s very smart....if he’s investing what he would be paying if he had a house/wife/family....he’s going to retire very wealthy (and he’ll get the last laugh)

He’s not investing. He just keeps $50,000 in a savings account. He spends the rest on alcohol, cigarettes, etc. He does pay a bit of rent and half the utilities at his mom’s. But he doesn’t mind getting laid off throughout the year.

Our friends like hanging out and drinking a bit. But this guy won’t come over if I say he can’t spend the night. He doesn’t think it’s a fun night if he can’t get drunk.

He’s always lecturing other people on how they should live their lives. Even on how they should have fun. Hubby enjoys working things in our garage (vehicles, side-by-sides, etc.) and making things (furniture, bumpers for those vehicles, etc.). He finds it relaxing and recharging. This guys tells him it’s work and he needs to go lay on a beach instead. He’ll go on for an hour about it.

That's sadly the way of it.
