12 People Share What They Thought Made Someone Rich When They Were Kids
Kids all grow up in the bubble of their family’s reality. Whatever’s normal at their house is normal, at least until they start school and start to visit their friends’s houses, and realize that not everyone’s “normal” looks the same.
If you grew up poor, or middle class, there were probably some things that’s existence completely amazed you – people who had those things were rich, surely.
Looking back now, it can seem silly, but everything is bigger and better when you’re small!
It all gets to Netflix eventually.
I got three letters for you: H. B. O.

Little entrepreneur, that one.
Having a wall phone in your house.. Only one of my friends had one. We all used to give her a nickel to use it. She also was the only one whose parents owned their own home! The rest of us lived in apartments.

Life lessons are surely worth something.
I always thought the kids who had a new pair of Jordan shoes everytime they came out were rich. I had to save up for two years to get a pair.

Everyone knows they’re tissues.
A box that goes over a box of tissues. My friend’s mom had one covered in sea shells and I was like “Probably they’re royal.”

And some people just fill theirs with junk!
I always thought garages and coat closets were indications of wealth. When we bought a house with both, I felt like I’d won the lottery. 17 years later they’re both still my favorite things about our home. I appreciate them every single day.

Full size candy bars at Halloween were 🤯🤯🤯

Probably because I’ve never lived in a house with double front doors.
i was convinced that double doors on a house were the ultimate wealth indicator.
