Can't tell if 1%er or Troll

Thread topic: "Does no one understand what the actual definition of "poverty" is? I get that an HHI of $200K or $250K can feel like it isn't going very far in NY, but how can people come on this board and claim that they feel impoverished at that income level? It's so absurd."
Comment: "Stop with this nonsense. Our two income 600 K Gross hardly covers it. DD in Rodeph Lower School. DS at Trevor. UWS Town House: Mortgage and Upkeep. All the lessons. A week at Telluride. A week in Anguilla. Two summer camps. Mandatory Israel for the kids. DH actually played golf last year on a public course and I do spinning at Soul Cycle only twice a week."
[Reply]: "Wait this is a joke, right? Or are you trolling without trying?"
"This is not a joke. This is real life. We do not even have a live in just a 3x/week housekeeper.I am not claiming to be in poverty but but in "our circle" we are considered to be struggling."

2) Nannies who didn't even graduate from Ivy League schools expect a living wage?!

Thread topic: "Any time I check babysitter websites all the nannies (at least those who have some experience and aren't high school kids) indicate they want around $20/hr. That seems crazy to me."
Comment: "Many of these nannies are hardly college educated. I made less money right out of an Ivy League than what some of them are asking for. That to me is not normal. Yes, I appreciate all the hard work, but no, you don't get to make more money than someone who's had more education and is working a corporate job."

3) What is a proper allowance for a struggling college student?

Thread topic: "Is $1,300 per month allowance ok for [son] going away for college?"
Comment: "I gave mine $2K plus an emergency card while they were at NYU. It is really difficult to get the full college experience without being able to do and wear all the things your friends do. Don't deny your son this one opportunity to have a great college experience. Did you deny him private school for K-12? denying him this cash would be the equivalent of sending him to public school."

Even if this is a troll there are plenty of people that think like this. Is it bad that I want to bash them over the head with a hard object and steal their shit?
History is full of maniacs, my friend, men and women of intelect, highly perceptive individuals, who's brilliant minds know neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils we must slay for the edification of pony-kind. Even if said edification means violating the rules of decency, society, and rightousness itself.

Oh those poor children. Only $1,300 a month. Reminds me of Gina Reinhardt's relatives fighting over her will.

No, it is not.

In the same country where the median wage has actually declined in real terms over the last forty years, the people who have received the proceeds are complaining they haven't stolen enough.

Dammit I think I got £2000 a year for living costs at uni from parents (student loans covered the rest) and I know damn well I was privileged. This is so beyond rich it's doing my head in.

...so she married for money, it didn't work out in that hubby isn't bringing in enough to satisfy her tastes...and she's a poor suffering thing that has to subsist on only 100k a year? Cries herself to sleep because she's not living in the manner that she's accustomed to?

Hell, where'd I put that smallest violin of mine....?

Again with the "you fail your kids if you send them to public school" crap too. -_-  Freaking snobs.

I know several millionaires and none of them are like this.  I don't know... the pettiness, the complaints, the prejudice...  it just sounds too ... perfectly put in a little elitist package.   I'm calling Poe/Troll/whatever on this one.

Though I don't deny there are rich folks who DO feel this way, they're usually not quite so open about it.

$2,000 a month for her kid is barely enough!? I just had to work up the courage to ask for $200 so I can eat while looking for a job. And no live in maid? Really? Are you so incredibly lazy that you can't even be bothered to pick up after yourself ever?

We should flood these peoples' email addresses with information about the French Revolution if they continue to whine about "only" making $600k a year.
