Quotes from my Neighborhood...

According to the New York Times, living here in Menlo Park is just filled with issues. Here's a few quotes from some of my neighbors...

"... a few million doesn't go as far as it used to."

"You're nobody here at $10 million."

"People around here, if they have 2 or 3 million dollars, they don't feel secure."

"I don't know how people live here on a normal salary."

"Here I’m a dime a dozen [with a net worth of $5 million to $10 million]."

"Poor Tony, he'll never be able to retire, [with $1.2 million left in savings and another several hundred thousand dollars worth of home equity.]"

"Siblings, parents, other relatives. Organizations seeking charitable contributions. There's this assumption [the multi-millionaires] have all this money — so why don't you write a big check to the school or to this other charity?"

(I love that last one. Can you imagine? Charities and schools wanting your money!)
