Nothing says “I have too much money” like buying bottled water or three dollar cups of coffee.

Ah, but maybe the poor can only treat themselves to the $3 cup of coffee. No cable, no car, no vacation, but a $3 coffee once in a while is their only treat.

Fair enough. Maybe I should add the word ‘regularly’ in there.

Poor is obviously a relative thing. I would suggest that we have very few poor in this country by any reasonable standard. How many people below the poverty level own one or more cars? Cell phones? Cable TV? iPods?
I’m not an Oprah fan, but she withdrew financial support from her inner city school programs when kids told her what they needed most was a nicer cell phone.
As for bottled water, some would argue the point. Not everyone is blessed to have drinkable tap water.

I would say the percent of people without drinkable tap water in the U.S. is smaller than your ‘reasonable standard’ poor.

Agree with the water, disagree about the coffee.
There is no benefit in buying water. It tastes the same and tap water is clean enough. The only valid reason would be if it was fluorinated and one opposes this (I don’t).
But buying coffee is similar to buying food out. It is convenient and tastes different (even I can tell and I am no coffee snob). The difference with food is bought coffee doesn’t save a significant amount of time.

Hmmm, well, I would say that people who eat out regularly are also saying that they have too much money.
