I spent a while being poor as a teenager. For a while, my family of five lived on $18,000 a year, we all slept in one room in a falling apart house with little heat and no insulation. We bought 50 pound bags of oats and other beans and 6 out of 7 days, we had oatmeal for breakfast and some sort of lentil soup or other stew for dinner. Go out to eat? I think we did three or four times that year.

To this day, I have issues with people who have lots of money and take it for granted. Really. I don't want to hear about it. It may be "just normal conversation" but if someone were to stand there and bemoan that their yacht broke down again, I am very likely to, as Azz said, want to stab them in the face. Even though now, I'm fairly well off, and that part of my life is but a small memory.

I always expect it's the same. Sure, it's probably OK to talk to your friend who can't walk about how you were running the other day... but there's pretty much no way that your friend will be able to avoid thinking about "if only I could run". IMO anyway...maybe some people are better at it than me, but I can never stop from thinking "if only I had grown up different" and that just puts me in a sad mood.
