I went to Bayview Village for lunch today. If you’re not familiar with Bayview Village, it’s basically a mall for rich people. Oh sure, they have an A&W there, but it’s in the middle of a bunch of posh restaurants and bistros that most people would never go to. (Other than the A&W, I didn’t see any other cheap places to eat.)

And, of course, there are a bunch of expensive clothing stores, where they charge twice as much—for clothes that are half as good—as at other stores.

And as were were having lunch, surrounded by people who were born into money, it occurred to me: I’m very uncomfortable around rich people. I much prefer hanging around middle-class or poor people than hanging around rich people.
