I was walking in the city today and crossed passed a small lane, where I saw a very nice Audi parked (one of those rare city places you could park without buying a ticket). I thought "typical, they can afford a $80,000 car but don't want to pay $6 for parking".
It reminded me of a story my friend told me once - his wife had just started a new job at a large investment bank and was out at drinks with her new colleagues. She was the lowest paid amongst all of them, and yet when it came time to pay the bill, they all disappeared, leaving her with the bill.
I also have a friend who is on six figures and tries to skimp on the rest of us when we're out socially.
These people make a lot of money - do you think that in turn makes them somewhat stingy? What's been your take of rich people you know or have come across in the past?
