10 Common Behaviors That Annoy Wealthy Individuals

Anger is a universal language to the dissatisfaction of every kind, and even all the money in the world couldn’t spare the well-to-do from this band of emotion when triggered. While how we react to the actions of others is not always dependent on the length of digits on our bank’s ledger balance, certain behaviors get the ultrawealthy riled, according to members of one online community who pinpoint these attributes as those the affluent find most distasteful.

1. Owning Loud Dogs

Who would think our furry friends could be so annoying that the affluent take the brunt on their poor owners? A delivery man who has run errands for many years in the highbrow areas of Los Angeles says it’s almost deathly silence in the affluent neighborhood, and walking a loud dog nearby is enough to infuriate the gentle folks.

2. Forming a Union

“What do you need a union for when they assume the working conditions they put in place are the best in our galaxy and places beyond interstellar space?” someone asks sarcastically. A respondent adds that although the suggestion of forming a union enrages the rich, you can appease them by calling for a “police union” instead.

3. Asking for a Raise

In the face of growing inflation and skyrocketing prices, asking for a raise, albeit small percentages, shouldn’t irk anyone. But several people on the thread claim it gets the monied angry, and it could be your ticket out of a job if you insist on getting some top-up.

4. Looking Them in the Eye

Greeted by a wide upvote, many users feel looking a billionaire in the eye is seen as condescending because they believe they are somehow above such decency. In agreement, someone advises that moneybags be force-fed humble pies and should be told what they need to hear, not what they want to hear.

5. Not Having a Trust Fund

The fat cats, especially those bred from old money, don’t know how not to be trust fund babies, and not having some assets fixed in your name by your parents can attract resentment to your way and theirs, one user explains.

6. Vocalizing Your Woes

As ridiculous as this appears, talking about life kicking you in the rear draws their indignation. “When I was in college, I would tell my friends straight up that I was too broke to go out and party with them, and it only ever bothered the guy whose parents are minted,” one user grudgingly narrates.

7. Unwilling To Work Long Hours

In the view of a contributor, declining to work long hours is often seen as a telling sign of being unprincipled and lacking the drive to be financially successful by the bigwigs. But the same contributor explains that it’s a time trap for exploitation, as the long hours are usually without adequate pay or deserving compensation.

8. Having a Life Outside of Work

It’s hard to comprehend how having a good life away from the office or factory can elicit anger. Still, one forum member explains that “doing anything other than work is proof of laziness”  to the stinking rich.   Another person says the rich think the poor deserve to suffer, and any relief from hardship is enough to get them outraged.

9. Asking How Much They Make

Ordinary people mostly do not mind talking about how much they make, but it isn’t the same for the rich, and asking them can mean stepping on toes. “The wealthy people I know don’t talk about what they earn, and it’s offensive to ask them. It’s ‘personal and private,'” a contributor recounts.

10. Being Poor and Within Sight

The rich love it exclusive, and it’s why they spend heavily on building their utopia around other rich people like themselves, one forum member implies. “To be poor and always within sight, even by a mile away, is to create an eyesore to the pristine paradise that makes the wealthy happy and alive.” One forum member says classism, not money, makes the affluent feel genuinely wealthy, and any shame on it can evoke their anger.
