"GIVE ME A NUMBER, GIVE ME A SPECIFIC NUMBER WHERE DO YOU MOVE FROM MIDDLE CLASS TO RICH? IS IT 100 THOUSAND, IS IT 50 THOUSAND, 2 HUNDRED?"After going on a bit, he finally came up with a number:
"SO — SO I THINK IF YOU’RE JUST TALKING ABOUT INCOME, HOW ABOUT FIVE MILLION."I knew inflation was getting out of hand, but I had no idea that an income of S4,999,999.99 was still considered middle class. I'm such a slacker!
Then again, I guess if you wear $500 loafers, maintain nine or ten homes, and are married to an extremely wealthy heiress who believes that the only way to get around your state is by private jet, anything less than $5,000,000 a year is pretty trifflin'.
Penny for your thoughts?
