Old Money

I saw an article about old money vs. new money.  It was interesting but fairly accurate. People with new money tend to be flashy.  They want to show off and be noticed. They will buy the fanciest luxury cars and drive around just to make sure they are seen. They will make scenes in tailor shops and upscale shoe stores so that people can recognize their bank account is definitely full. The old money is completely opposite.  They do drive a luxury vehicle but one that is practical for their family. They have a tailor come to their home rather than go out in public. They dress conservatively and wear their everyday jewelry daily.  The new money shows off all types of gold jewelry again to be noticed.  The new money is also very loud in expensive upscale restaurants but they rarely tip.  The upscale restaurants know the old money individuals and have a table ready without a fuss.  The wait staff knows that they also tip very well so they are extremely eager to please. I have lived in cities, towns and villages with both the old and the new. It is always obvious.  For example, take a look at Warren Buffett. He lives in a conservative home yet he is extremely wealthy.  Just because you are rich doesn’t mean you have of show off.  What type would you be if you won the lottery tomorrow?
