Being poor isn’t easy. Sounds pretty obvious right? Everyone knows that poor people have it harder. But what’s interesting is just how much of a disconnect there often is between wealthier people and their poorer peers. Although Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and a few other parts of the globe all have relatively high standards of living, there is still poverty. Maybe not in the sub-Saharan Africa sense of the word, but definitely enough poverty that upper and lower classes are farther apart than is sustainable in the long term.
The fact is that we’re all pretty quick to judge one another on how we should be living, what she would be buying, or where we should be shopping, especially when it comes to different economic classes. From each end there is always a passionate argument; for example, on one end, poor people shouldn’t have iPhones because that’s irresponsible, and from the other direction, rich people shouldn’t make such risky investments because that’s irresponsible.
The bottomline is this, rich and poor often don’t come into contact with one another. People who don’t have enough money to even buy a car aren’t often found in the same social circles as those who live in gated neighborhoods. A lot of this could be solved simply by understanding and spending time with people that are different from us. Unfortunately, that probably won’t ever happen. Instead, we offer you this list. These are 25 things poor people do that rich people don’t.
