Do you think it's harder to be rich or poor?

It's most definitely harder to be poor. No doubt, but some rich people seem to believe the poor people are ruining their day by asking for help.

  • Fuck those people. I am sure people with money have their day to day stresses, but at least they don't have to decide between putting gas in an empty car or buying formula for their baby. They don't have to pay eenie meenie miney mo to decide which bills get paid that month.

  • I might be poor but I don't ask anyone (except my parents) for help. Yeah, life can be hard as hell. Deciding between gas and groceries is always fun. I don't want a handout though. I just want the opportunity to give my son a life and for him to be able to do better than me.

  • It would be hard to be poor. Deciding how to feed a family and paying bills is hard. The rich have to worry if their investment broker is making good investments for them or stealing their money. Big woop.

  • Neither- it is harder to be lower middle class. Making to much for help and not enough to survive.

  • Harder how?

    Answer by QuinnMae at 9:21 AM on Sep. 20, 2012

  • I think it's not a competition

    Answer by NotPanicking at 9:56 AM on Sep. 20, 2012

  • Well, IMO life is hard period. Shit happens, and there is many things money can't fix. I've never been rich, so I can't say if it's harder or not. I've been poor and lower middle class my whole life; we've always managed to get by with little to no government assistance; however I don't think the rich owe me anything. And I'm pretty sure they have their own challenges, and who am I to say that mine are more legitimate, worrisome, etc. than theirs.
