'You’re kind of a schlepper'
Please extend pity to those on the lower rungs of the top 1 percent
of the richest people in the United States. They're getting priced out of buildings in Manhattan and L.A. ... Discovered the article via a stock-broker friend who was reading the piece while watching the Pats game yesterday. The conversation went something like this:
Me: So what are you reading?
Friend: About how I'm not in the top 1-percent bracket of the richest people in the U.S.
Me: So that means you're one of the people.
Friend: Yes, the people.
Me: The riffraff
Friend: Yes, the riffraff.
Me: The dredges of society.
Friend: The dredges of society.
Me: Only one vacation home.
Friend: Only one vacation home.
The last paragraph of the article has a pretty funny observation on water bottles, elevators and girths.
