Poorer people seem to get jealous of the richer because they cant afford as nice things. Rich people can either make their fortunes through hard work, stock market or striking it rich. They can be inheritors or lottery winners or moguls or they can just have a really good job.
Many people get envious when they find out they cant ever and will never have as much money as me. What can I say? I'm one of the lucky ones financially and you aren't.
Michaels stomach dropped when he realized how far behind in life he was compared to his richer and younger peer. 'Oh no' he realized, i'm so uneducated and moneyless. Better do something crazy.
"Nice shoes man, those are rich."
"I'm rockin a bar of gold attached to a platinum chain, don't tell me that ain't rich!"
Being more well-off than your peers. As in having a lot more money than they do. Being well-ahead of them financially.
