>>7263019 Thats most of it right there. You're not paying for the food, you're paying for the experience of eating it alongside other rich people in an expensive dining room. I had a rich aunt who regularly ate out at those 'hundred dollar plate' restaurants, and from the extensive documentation of pictures she always takes wherever she eats, it doesn't look like i'm missing out on anything.
When you can eat anything you want at any given time, but have more important things to think about then food, then you eat whatever is convenient. Rich people have no problem going to a nice restaurant when they're out with friends/clients/old friends/new friends/family, but if you go to their house you'll probably find them throwing a frozen pizza in the oven.
When you can absolutely afford anything you want to eat at any given time, eating becomes somewhat of a chore, and not as enjoyable as say, watching the world series in the 100 section.
My boss is pretty wealthy and he eats pretty shitty looking food. Always see him eating left over pizza or Chinese food and if its something home made its normally just spaghetti or some shit. He also drinks the shittiest beer you can buy. He let's me drink his beer while I'm working though.
>>7264642 Yeah, I'm definitely not rich but i eat hero's good food because i do mostly home cooked meals and eat out at really nice places a couple times a month. Nice places are not the most expensive btw. Local sushi place that's family owned and about $100 for two is waaaay better than ruths chris stupid over priced shit
>>7263287 One of my friends is really wealthy and they eat shit food all the time. Her dad made dinner once, and it was onion rings, fried chicken, french fries, and fried pickles He discovered they had two countertop deep fryers and got hella excited
Depends on where you're going, etc. Some of the michelin star restaurants really are a different world that could be worth the money. I am talking about Noma, the fat duck (for all the cool shit), Jiro's, etc etc.
>>7266110 'New Money' is basically a 17th century invention, when the European merchants started surpassing the aristocracy in wealth and the aristocrats came up with the bullshit excuse that the 'new' money didn't count because it's holders didn't have the right taste.
hHhAHAHAHA I'm a son to a rich Mexican, my life is settttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt
>>7266149 Yeah Bill Gates sure is reckless and tacky compared to Paris Hilton. It's basically a pyramid scam where you are asked to recognize their taste as superior and when you do you will still be considered a joke trying to fit in.
My older brother married the daughter of a ridiculously rich real estate developer down in Florida. He makes a rack of ribs for himself every day. Like literally, every single day. I don't actually know if he eats anything else at home; certainly seen him order nice shit when he takes us out to dinner at a Cuban place but I think the answer to "what do rich people eat" is "literally whatever they feel like because money doesn't matter".
>hur dur u don't get rich by spending money rich people live sober as shit
This is the most retarded oldschool worthless saying in existence and I can't believe people still spout it. You have the cognitive capacity of a child or senile old woman.
OT: I'm rich (started on six figures) enough. My parents are very rich, being a high-end judge and art-trader. When I grew up my parents both cooked 3-4 nights a week, very diverse though, yet not caviar stuffed oysters, just good and exotic. We went out for dinner a lot, 2 times a week sometimes. Not star-restaurants necessarily, just nice. We still do. I'll be doing the same. Don't care about a villa or two cars, just want to keep on living in luxury, like most people well off.
They usually have personal chefs and shit come in and cook for them, but for the most part the families I've worked with will have like normal shit for breakfast and lunch, ceral and granola and that shit with sandwiches later. for dinner the chef actually comes in and makes something nice. But for the most part it's normal food with the luxury of all the meat being from the local butcher, all the cheese being from the dairy and all the vegetables being farm fresh. But I worked for a healthnut who was scared of bugs so ehh.
>>7262609 Rich people eat healthy foods. My boss for example, his wife cooks brown rice and vegetables mostly. Someone gave him a gift of one of those mail order expensive steak packages he ended up giving them away at work. However at the local ghetto grocery I see poor people with food stamps with two buggies mostly piled full of meat, more than I can afford to buy on my measly 50,000 a year salary. So I think poor people eat like you think rich people would and rich people eat like you think poor people should
When you're very rich, you can afford strange, new hobbies. Like cloning. Yourself. Repeatedly. You also acquire strange, new tastes. Like exotic meats. Like human flesh? Like your /own/ human flesh? Could be.
>>7266046 If you behave with class, the source of your money doesn't matter.
It's just a fact of life people are bad with money by default. Give a person massive income out of nowhere and they are more likely than not spending that on useless crap. A person born into wealth is most likely taught how to deal with money by his parents.
>>7267420 >A person born into wealth is most likely taught how to deal with money by his parents. Ha, not very likely.
Most kids I've seen born into money just piss it all away unless the parents put limits on their spending.
The sad part is, kids born into money are sheltered from how the real world works since they generally have everything given to them. Nice clothes, fancy cars, completely paid for ivy league education, set up with a cushy low responsibility, high pay job at one of Daddy's companies, etc. Then they have their own kids and inherit the family riches and the cycle continues.
>>7267501 He's obviously American Americans lap up the bullshit that they're all secret millionaires and that's why they have to support Trump All the while having not the slightest clue how much more money rich people have and how this determines every aspect of their life from conception to processing of their dead body
>>7267501 You don't know many rich people, do you.
Most of the people I've known who were loaded were notoriously tighwads about what they'd spend on food, excepting the occasional nice restaurant visit. Stop thinking the Trumps and rappers you see on TV are representative of all people with money.
>>7262609 I'm not rich but more on the up side of upper middle class. I don't eat anything fancy for the most part, but i routinely will order like 4 different things when i order from a pizza place for example just for variety and i throw away whatever i don't eat. Like I'll get a salad, a pizza, a sub, and some sides and only eat a few bites of each then toss it all. It's rare that I'll ever save anything for leftovers. Also if i go to a restaurant sometimes I'll order two entrees and just eat a little of both.
>>7267529 Just because many wealthy people observe some of the trappings of a more modest wealth bracket doesn't mean they are doing it to "hold on to their money". It's just a psychological game they play. I know a guy who does his own grocery shopping at Walmart and drives an old Taurus. He also casually mentions buying and selling jet planes the way you and I talk about replacing a light bulb (he is not in the aviation business, this is for his family's use). Sure he may be a "tightwad" in some respects but it's not because he genuinely is trying to save every penny.
All the 'rich' people I ever knew always ate out at restaurants. Too busy to cook, too poor to afford personal chefs/grocery runners, but not poor enough so as not to be able to shell $50~80 a night for food prepared for them at a decent place. Or just buy garbage Chinese takeout like the majority of other rich folk itt.
Drinking bud light or free only implies living sober, at least that's how I interpreted it. The fact that rich people don't 'spend' money is utter bullshit, is what I'm trying to say. And I am not a beerdrinker but I won't go cheap if there's a better alternative - so I didn't grasp the saying.
>>7267675 I'm in my twenties, childless and thus have an amount of disposable income that would make me classify myself as rich. I'm not the 1%, no, but that's more 'filthy rich' than 'rich'. It's arguably a relative term. Friends of my parents live in a castle which is worth over 5 million, but they don't have a lot of disposable money (until they sell the thing) so I'd say I 'live richer' than they do, you understand? If I had a non-working wife and three children I'd probably be placed somewhere middle or maybe slightly upper-middle class.
>>7267710 But if this is you too we are just handling a different interpretation of the term. Doesn't mean you're wrong, just makes the term 'rich' apply to that one percent I mentioned beforehand.
>>7267689 That's upper middle, not upper. I know because that's what I was growing up and will be in a few years. I know plenty of upper middle class people, being that it's my social caste, and a handful of truly upper class people, both old and new money. I know some truly middle and lower-middle class people, too. However, were my family really rich, the majority of people I know would be upper class with a few upper middle and next to none below that.
It's just how things are. People of certain classes tend to run in similar circles because despite what we'd like to believe, socioeconomic class makes a huge mark on one's interests and interests play an enormous role in what sort of friends you'd keep.
