I don't disagree that there are rich snobby people. I've met plenty of them. A lot while I was waiting tables and a nice end restaurant too.
But what are you defining as rich? Do you actually know how much money these people have? Do you know their life stories? Doubtful.
Also, I come from a wealthier family. Not 'rich' by any stretch of the means, but my parents provided pretty well for themselves. They were the
first in each of their families to go to college. Worked their way up from living in a roach invested apartment to having a nice 2 story house in the
suburbs in a nice neighborhood and were able to send both their kids to college.
They are some of the most genuinely hard working and nice people I know.
They are incredibly smart with their money and do not recklessly spend any of it (which is why they have been able to provide so much.) They save
wherever they can. Even if that means my father and mother doing all of the repairs to our house themselves. And not just repairs, but complete
remodeling - tearing down walls, building cabinets, installing plumbing, etc.
Because of how I was brought up, I also know a lot of 'rich' people. And i can genuinely say, some of the 'rich' people i know are the NICEST and
most generous people I've met. And that niceness extends out to not just me and their close friends/family, but to everyone.
This whole class warfare thing is EQUALLY as discriminative as racism or any other kind of intolerant behavior. How can you possibly label an entire
social caste of people that you don't even know based on a handful of experiences you have at a restaurant in one little corner of the world?
Maybe your restaurant just attracts douchey people. Who knows?
Or maybe it's just your attitude.
We are all reflections of each other. Often times what we dislike in others is truly something we dislike about ourselves.
But I'd recommend you don't lower yourself down to the petty hatred and wasteful anger,
because if/when you do
you become no better than that you hate.
