Rich Dude

I might have mentioned this guy before.  He hired me to clean his antiques (and keep him company, I think).  It’s an okay job.  He smokes a lot and it’s dusty but other than that, the work’s not too hard.

He comes from money but he still brags about it.  He drives a fancy Italian car.  He doesn’t realize he is wasting his breath boasting to me.  I don’t respect the ways his family got rich.

BUT, he is very generous with people he trusts and likes.  He sent me home with a bit more money than I asked for and a bottle of wine.

He lets a woman who worked for him for many years live in one of his houses rent-free.  She is his “care-taker”.  I think he really has a good heart.  THAT is what I like about him.  He’s a lovable old guy despite his faults.

I have a feeling that if I stuck around I might be his care-taker someday.  I doubt I will stick around for that though.  I have different goals than cleaning all day and I still have a headache from his cigarette smoke (yuck).

Still, it’s fun to hear his stories.  He grew up with some bigwig families from this area.  People with their names on hospitals and such.  Even one of the top 100 Billionaires in the U.S.  It’s interesting to hear a little of how some rich people think.  Naturally, they have their share of problems like anyone else.  Money can cause a lot of deceit and you always have to wonder if people like you for yourself or your money.  I would hate that.
