Rich people sometimes need others to sometimes remind them that they're rich.
Which is why sometimes they buy huge houses like this.
Since the knee-jerk reaction to anyone else seeing you with a house like this would be
"HOLY F*CK YOU ARE RICH!!! TAKE ME HOME WITH YOU!!! ME LOVE YOU LONG TIME!!!!"
In which the rich guy could then attempt to be humble and say
"No lar.. cheap cheap only this house. My bedroom is only a little bit bigger than that island you come from.... what's it called again? Penang?".
Now just like rich people... poor people like myself must also be reminded that we are poor so that we'll feel more down and push ourselves off a cliff.
I came back from my tiring day at work yesterday, walked into my room and sat on my study table for a few seconds.
There it was, sitting on my table and staring right at me was an envelope with my name and address on it. I opened it only to find a letter from Citigroup Wealth Management.I thought to myself
"COOL!!! I have PRIVATE BANKERS managing my WEALTH!!!"
(Forgetting at that point that in order to have private bankers managing your wealth, I need to have wealth to manage first).
So I studied the contents of the letter and found this.
All the summary said was that my portfolio was worth RM 0.00 at current price.
Note that they could have said it was worth RM 0 but nooooo... they decided that they had to make a point by adding another two zeros at the end of that figure.
They might as well have said RM0.0000000.
So there you have it.
My imaginary private bankers reminding me that I am poor... and that I HAVE NO ASSETS.
I didn't dare read the rest of the letter for fear that the back of the letter might say
"Since you are POOR and have NO MONEY and are WORTHLESS to us... please pay us a fee of RM500 for this letter that we have just sent you".
