So we just bought a house and I went tonight to drive through the neighborhood when everyone was home and I don't think we are good enough to live here...

First of all, our house is the smallest one around this lake. Second of all, there are Hummers and Cadillac Escalades parked in front of their houses.
We have very normal cars and are simple people. Even if we could buy a Cadillac I really don't think we would. We are also much younger than the rest of the residents. What would you think if somebody who was less fortunate than you moved into your neighborhood? Would you be pissed?

  • Hold your head up and don't worry about them.

    As long as you're not letting your kids run around in just a saggy, overloaded diaper while you drink beer in a lawnchair and toss your empties over the fence and don't only talk to the kids when you're yelling at them not to tease that DAWG or get off that rusty car.... I think you're good.

  • I wouldn't notice unless they made a habit of parking their rusted truck on the front lawn.

    You were able to buy the house, right? Then you're good enough.

  • Nope - we all live check to check. Regardless the size of the paycheck there are always bills to equal it. Feel fortunate

  • Hell no! Good for you! Most of those people probably live way above their means, continue to live as you are and never try to conform and keep up with the Jones'. BE YOU! And if they don't like it....they can kiss your ass! you go girl, and way to go on the purchase of your new home!

  • I wouldn't be. In my neighborhood there are people who look like they probaly don't have as much money as we do and some who I KNOW make crap loads more money than we do. And I wouldn't give a crap what someone else thinks anyways. Who cares if it pisses them off? It's YOUR house, not theirs and none of their business who lives in it to begin with. Hold your head up sweetie, you are not LESS than just because they make more MONEY.

  • No way! You live by a lake, that's more than a lot of people. I don't live by a lake and my whole neighborhood is filled with old people. lol Not in a bad way but they are much older. Maybe they are the kind that bakes stuff and brings it over. That would be nice.

  • Neighbors are neighbors, it doesn't matter what they drive, or how much money they have it's if they will feed your dogs when you go out of town and babysit lol just kidding but seriously if they look at you for what you have and not who you are screw em! I drive a jeep and my husband drives a dodge and we live in the country, i'm with you i wouldn't want a cadillac, my neighbor lives in a 1970's trailer and drives an 80's cavalier we didn't treat them any diffrent they are people too (well until they started trying to log our property, but that's another story) I wouldn't worry about it! If they like you they like you if they don't oh well, they have big houses and fancy cars, you have a normal american family and a home. hope this helps

  • All those ppl are probably in debt up to their eyeballs & working themselves to death to have that stuff. I would just live your life and dont worry about them.
