This topic is giving me quite a chuckle.
There is a documentary/movie out called 'The Queen of Versailles'. It is about a couple who were multi millionaires in the USA and they decided to build a house that was 90,000 square feet or something ridiculous - 5 million dollars of marble sitting in the garage ready to be laid, bowling alley, stage, 9 kitchens the whole thing.
The woman is much younger than the man and she had 6 kids with him - then came 2008 and they ran into a problem with the banks and everything stopped. No personal shopper. No personal driver. Had to get rid of 19 staff and make do with just one nanny - and this is what is rather funny - she said she kept having babies because she just popped them out and handed them over to the nanny. Neither her nor her husband have ever changed a diaper. She said if she had of known she had to clean up after them, she wouldn't have had them all - that is indicative of what happens when money is no object. People change and things that make them happy don't necessarily make them feel the same way down the road. The kids in this documentary did nothing - everything was done for them - even when it came to their pets. When the house staff were let go - nobody bothere to feed the fish or the lizard and they died because there was no water or food for them. The dogs crapped all over the 26,000 square foot house they live in because nobody could be bothered to train them. The documentary really is disgusting and a sad commentary on how some people live and is kind of the opposite end of the scale of honey-boo-boo.
Kind of like when Hilton ate ice cream sprinkled with gold shavings for $2,000 bucks a cone - she did it because money was no object and she felt like it - it made her happy. She's older now - would it still make her happy or has she moved on to something different? If money is no object, I think people with a greater sense of worth and awareness will use it wisely to their benefit and most likely the benefit of those they help - when money is no object and people lack the self esteem and self awareness, logic and intelligence to use it wisely, they fall prey to opportunists and need, both of which could easily be their downfall. sammies
