"Oy.
There is no way I consider myself upper class.
That's just silly."

Well said, AngelMay. Of course the mere words "upper class" imply a lifestyle. Immediately we visualize the well dressed individual relaxing on the veranda. And then the upper class activities: sailing, golf, polo, etc.

There are those who live the lifestyle. There are those who make the income. They are not the same in many cases. There are plenty of wannabes out there who do not make the income. "Dress for the job you want, not the job you have." There are also the laid back upper class who feel no need to flaunt their wealth.

I wonder how many of those $88K plus people are sitting in front of their computers in shorts or blue jeans. (I am.)
