Is it vulgar and distasteful to live like this if you've earned it? Or wasteful?
My little granddaughter went to a birthday party in a ten thousand sq foot home. Her mother, my daughter, had to call and tell me all about it. It had a gold leaf fireplace w/a matching one in the next room,, an indoor pool with diving board, a garage with a collection of antique cars and wet bar plus pool house. It had an outdoor pool, too and the grounds were covered with flowers that looked like The Wizard of Oz movie. The place had a crystal chandelier in every room and my daughter’s feet were lost in deep carpeting. The house was filled with imported marble everywhere. It was on four lots and very much superior to every house around it. They are adding onto it now. Do you think this is showing off or what they deserve for owning a national life insurance company whose name I will keep to myself. She said it was so huge she doubted the four occupants got to be around one another very often which gave her a “cold” feeling. Their daughter, 12, goes to acting classes and orders salads with no dressing when her friends are buying burgers and fries. Yes; they all go to hamburger joints.
