Born into the lower or working class
. If you were born with a plastic spoon
in your mouth
, you grew up riding public transport, eating food out of cans, begging your parents
for a quarter, wearing bargain bin clothes and using the internet at public libraries
Basically the opposite of spoiled
; while not necessarily poor, you missed out on a lot of the experiences well-to-do suburban
kids enjoyed. Nothing was ever handed to you, you know from an early age that life is not fair
, and the only way you'll accumulate wealth is through hard work and sheer luck. You find comfort in knowing that you appreciate what you do have, not taking for granted that you are still more privileged than most of the world.
Nevertheless you can't help but envy
those born into wealth
who travel the world on their trust funds
and go directly from school
dom without breaking a sweat or sucking corporate
dick for twenty years before being promotes to regional executive
Some of us were just born with plastic spoons in our mouths...
