So, dear Jean-Eudes, yes, people are (a little) jealous of the rich, but it’s not just that. People are tired of realizing that their little pleasures have often become all moldy since others, high on money, have come to poke their noses into them. They have absolutely nothing against your big barracks or your tasselled moccasins, on the other hand. So please stop touching this:
“What if we bought a team to put all the big players in and kill the championship? »
“Wait, I have better: what if we created a competition with only big teams that we would call SUPER LEAGUE? »
Fortunately the Super League is a failure otherwise we would have really lost this sport.
Collecting stuff is a cool passion at its core: you save up to buy your Star Wars figurines, your rare stamps, your Johnny panties or whatever you want. And then guys richer than you start doing the same thing except they don’t need to save. And suddenly your little collection is all busted next to theirs. The injustice is total.
3. Thrift stores
The thrift shops before: “Cool I found a great leather jacket for 20 euros”
Thrift stores now: “Cool I found a great leather jacket for 120 euros, it’s still 15 less than the price of new, it’s crazy! »
Inevitably, when the rich are interested in second-hand clothes, it becomes hot for others to find small nuggets.
4. Nice neighborhoods where real estate prices are skyrocketing
At first you’re in a reputedly “popular” and inexpensive neighborhood. Then we say that it “gets gentrified”. Then your rent doubled. All this in just a few years. Thank you rich.
5. The campsite
When did camping become something where you live in cabins so big they look like houses? The real campsite was a tent and a half-inflated mattress, not some kind of Club Med that costs a blind. IN MORE THERE ARE NOT EVEN SARDINES TO HANG THEIR CHALETS ON THE GROUND, IT’S ZERO.
Before, you had stylish brands that brought you sweatshirts or jogging pants at fair prices, and then it became hype. So your nice sweet has gone from 30 to 70 balls, and if you’re not happy it’s the same price. Well no, it’s not the same price.
7. Festivals like Coachella or Burning Man
As soon as the rich realized that the lower classes were having fun without them at cool festivals, they said to themselves that something had to be done. They multiplied the prices by 3, invented things like “VIP bungalow”, and then they sent their influencers to make everyone believe that it was cool. But no, it’s not cool anymore because of you.
8. The Socialist Party
Before there were guys like Jaurès, from the bourgeoisie, who became real socialists. Today it’s still people from the bourgeoisie, but that’s all. They forgot the second step of the process. It’s stupid.
9. Dating sites
Well already the very rich people have created their dating app to stay among the rich, but that’s their problem. No, the real problem is that the algo of some apps tends to give precedence to pretty girls with profiles of rich older guys. Love may be blind, but it still smells of money (which doesn’t smell, let’s remember).
10. ComicCon-type conventions
We went from “nice little gathering for manga fans” to “queuing for 2 hours to pay a 30 bucks autograph. Nice concept, isn’t it?
11. Create your YouTube channel
Before it was : “Here, I’m going to borrow dad’s camera to make funny videos. »
Today it’s : “Well, I’m going to buy a 4K camera, lights, a big editing computer, a set and I’m going. »
We can say what we want about TikTok but at least for that there’s no need to blow up the budget. For the moment.
“So we created a great VIP area right in front of the stage for people who can afford to pay 200 euros for their place, but if you want you can go with the poor at the back. »
Alright, let’s think about it.
When you know that before the lobster cost nothing until the rich claim it, well it sucks. Look at all these poor foods that have become rich dishes, it’s going to cut your appetite.
From the moment when the rich only want to put their kids in schools for the rich, it shoots down the whole system. But it doesn’t matter, let’s send the young inexperienced teachers to the ZEP, they’ll manage!
15. The Planet
BAM you didn’t see it coming huh? But yet when we know that 100 very rich companies are responsible for more than 70% of carbon emissions in the world, we say to ourselves that we have been fooled by the dough. In the meantime, we will still tell you to do the selective sorting as if it was all your fault. Hahaha that nerve.
