Why do you guys get so mad when people post or say things that imply they are wealthy or better than most of you? I get that a lot of people troll but are some of you so poor that you can't believe some people live in half million dollar houses and don't struggle to pay bills or even SAHM's can genuinely afford to do so and even have nannies? No I'm not independently wealthy but I married very well and love my husband. Not everyone on this site is poor or struggling?

Update: I do NOT think any one person is better than any one. It was supposed to say better off. Thank you to the poster who showed me how to edit a post. You learn something new everyday. Also please excuse the random comments, I was getting ready to take a long car ride with the kids. I through in the I love my husband because he had surprised me with a gift.

Um...want a cookie? Lol.

not trying to be a bitch i just feel like I've been criticized a lot for being "poor" and struggling financially. I've never seen anyone torn up for being wealthy...but maybe I've missed it.

I know lots of people with more money than me , her and in real life. I don't get the anger. They have nicer stuff than me, that's life.

Maybe because half of the time, wealthy mom's come off as being better than everyone else.

I'd say we are middle class. A half million dollar home can vary from a mansion in rural Georgia to a shack in Long Island. I'd say the number claiming wealth and poverty are equal in troll numbers.

I think a lot of it has to do with geography. In some parts of the country, half a million is nothing, in others that would be ridiculously expensive.

Exactly!

Quoting suzanneyea:

Money does not equal better than another person.

Maybe your approach is the problem.

I don't care if people on here make more money than I do. I take issue with you implying that makes them better than me though.

Why do you think that having more money than someone equals being "better than" them?
