We’ve always suspected it, but wondered if it was just jealously masquerading as justified contempt… rich people tend to be jackasses.
Well, scientists finally decided to look at the issue and… to no ones surprise… the rich really are jerks. In a study of the driving patterns of people who drive luxury cars, study authors found:
- drivers of luxury cars are 4 times more likely to cut someone off in traffic than drivers of more modest cars; and
- luxury car drivers will not slow to allow priority to pedestrians at cross walks 46% of the time
You may be poor, you may be struggling in a dead end job.. or even between jobs. But at least you’re not a rich asshole.
