1. And they don't have to mow the lawn
That's what "illegals" are for.

2. Two Things
oh heck, I wish I had someone to help me clean my house, being disabled and all.

Three things.

4. For me the two main things I envy (besides great health care) are:
- ability to sleep at night knowing your retirement will be secure and you'll always have a roof over your head and money in the bank, and
- ability to travel the world

Travel! Not big houses, not boats, not jewelry, not fancy cars ... travel is the luxury I envy. I was lucky I was able to travel quite a bit in my youth and I really miss having those incredible experiences.

5. private planes
I hate any air travel now... often the necessary travel to see family and friends... because of the onerous regs/fees for us plebians when it comes to commercial flights!

8. What I envy is
Edited on Fri Oct-28-11 03:59 PM by undergroundpanther
They have time,meaningful time,to go socialize in a pleasant place,(Like huge homes with everything you could want in there,money to entertain and be entertained,and country clubs),without being hassled by mall cops or sales people demanding they BUY something to occupy the space.They have time and the social life built up by having free time to enjoy each other,do fun or interesting things,have a meaningful relationships.I hate the rich they always have the means to go places I will NEVER EVER see.They are never without transportation,food,medicine, heat. I hate the rich because they never feel the cruelty of poverty,and they are so removed from the consquences of their lifestyles and greed they see people like you and I as cattle and the homeless as lazy and can pretend the homeless want to be homeless. The rich,they never have to do without anything or do anything they don't want to do.They have staff to cook the food,wash the dishes,to manage the paperwork,manage their fucking companies manage the hassles in maintaining their healthcare,and all the other really insane time occupying BULLSHIT that the 95% of us face (Like repeating over and over your name/dress/date of birth etc. to a fucking machine,or going up a phone tree trying to put you off,to get a number to call to go up ANOTHER damn phone tree until you find the person that can really fix your reason you called.They don't have to worry about forgetting to go wait in line for 3 hours at the DMV to get a little fucking sticker,with 2011,12,13..on it to put on a corner of a license plate to avoid being charged 70 or 80 bucks,or waiting in a ten mile line at a store because THEY get thier organic pure healthy meals DELIVERED to their kitchens where staff cooks it up,or trying to stay dry at a bus stop with no shelter hoping the lightening does not hit YOU today, all those stupid unnecessary hassles that make life feel like you are being packed to death by chickens.

They never have to do the laundry,mow the most stupid thing on earth,lawns,they have people to make sure every ache and pain they have is attended to,they might be totally assholes people we would NEVER tolerate being in our presence very long,but somehow they get people to fawn over them to,cover their ass,and they never ever have to go without.They never go to REAL jail or have to admit their child is a fucking bully,.Their houses are places they want to live in,and because they are rich their housing will never be threatened by a bully landlord,they'll never have to live next to a gang,their homes are NEVER left un-repaired from lack of money to fix it,They can have whatever pets they want,who's gonna tell them they can't have a cat? They don't even have to go crazy with their own offspring,they have nannies,And if they feel a bit stressed they can call a chauffeur and go to a spa and get massages or go do yoga with a physical therapist,..they have a PRIVATE shrink who does not have to fork over everything said in your therapy to insurance or the state.I hate the rich because when they get depressed,they will NEVER be handcuffed by cops and forced into the back laying down due to a broken tibia,hand cuffs digging in assumed to be DAAAAaangerous,for being so damn sad inside.

I hate the rich because they are NOT at all better quality of people than I, more deserving,fortunate or hardworking or even noble,yet they get treated as if they were..

I hate them because they assume we should suffer so THEY never have to.
They get to live in a beautiful world because ours is so terrible to endure.

9. sorry, i don't do envy. i dislike they UNFAIRNESS of how wealth is distributed
but i don't envy the rich simply for being rich.
i'm not going to begrudge someone for becoming wealthy by actually earning it and treating everyone along the way fairly.

i resent the system that lets them get wealth grossly disproportionate to their actual merit.
