25 Things Both Rich And Poor People Do Albeit For Different Reasons

Posted by , Updated on September 15, 2016

There are many things that both rich people and poor people do. It’s normal. We all eat, sleep, use the bathroom. Everyone does those things. But that’s not what we’re going to be talking about today. Today we’re going to be looking at those things that are very particularly a rich thing and a poor thing simultaneously.

For example, both rich people and poor people get financial handouts. In the former case it’s a bank bailout. In the latter case it’s welfare. These are things that are typically unique to the extremely rich or the extremely poor. While the middle class can certainly do these things as well, it is not stereotypically known for them to do so. So, when you are reading through this list, think of the poorest, most crooked toothed hillbilly you can possibly conceive of and then the richest, most smug Wall Street fat cat you could possibly conceive of and you’ll have your two groups.

So whether it’s taking financial handouts, gambling, or living in Florida (for those of you who don’t understand, Florida is known for extreme riches and extreme poverty), these are 25 Things Both Rich And Poor People Do Albeit For Different Reasons.
