A Fine Whine of the Upper Class

I had to laugh at this Wall Street Journal Article on those "middle-class" folks who "only" make $250,000 a year.

"I'm not complaining, but the reality is ... " yes, you are complaining.  Unnecessarily so.  You have a 2500 sq.ft. house in the burbs, drive an infiniti and whine about how plebian you are.  Tough noogies, woman.

The article helpfully explains their plight, "They are by no means struggling, compared with the 98% of Americans who make far less, but depending on where they live and the lifestyle choices they have made, they don't necessarily feel rich, either."


If you think $250k per isn't enough, then what exactly WOULD be enough for you?  How much food do we have to shove into your mouth to satisfy you?  How many cars do you need?  How much couch space is sufficient for you? 

How arrogant can you get?
