I think it might depend on how well one manages their money. I think it's ok for most people when talking about owning a business, or serious financial matters or big things about your careers & living situation, but when rich people do it, it's tacky and it bothers people. And the rich know it. Most rich people spend a relatively small portion of their income, so the expensive stuff they may have is usually not excessive. Not the same thing at all.

Best Answer

what about those "rich" people who enjoy expensive things also?

Best Answer

Well, it is rude to tell people how much money you earn. It is also ok to buy things if you earn the money. But you must remember that many people have been destroyed financially by trying to "keep up with the Jones" and overspending with credit. Just because people have things does not mean they earned those things.
