"For being poor, your kids sure are spoiled" say what?

"I didnt want to send toys because when I was there at Christmas they certainly had enough and got enough. For being as poor as you are, your kids certainly dont want for anything."

How would you take this statement?

I guess it would depend who said it.

I would tell them that the goodwill is awesome and that my family members spoil my kids.


I would also then point out that I was planning on sending them a book on tact for Christmas as they obviously lacked it.

I would assume they were holier than thou and not associate with them anymore.

Take it as it is. She's blown away that you can apparently budget better than her, get better gifts for you kids than she could, have a great support system that makes the kids christmas amazing. =) You should have laughed at her and said "Don't you know what a budget is?"

I guess if my kids did have everything I wouldn't be poor, so I would feel this person has misjudged my finances.

However, I have felt this way about others.

 I am not poor, so no one would say that to me.

Those who aren't poor can't answer hypothetical questions either apparently.

Quoting Wicked.Jester:

 I am not poor, so no one would say that to me.
