Don't you dare give in, and as for the rich girls, some are nice, some not, the down to earth ones do come along and some good friendships are established. I tried to marry a rich girl once, I loved the large launch her father owned, it was fantastic but it was not to be so I just had to work and buy my own.
Wife did not like the sea, she gets motion sickness, so now I ride a horse. And there is a common factor between a boat and a horse. Boat ownership is a hole in the ocean one poors money into and horse ownership is a paddock one walks past and throws money onto with a slight difference. Who in there right mind would own and ride 1200 pounds that has a mind of its own and is capable of using it.
I have on ocassion run into those that feel their tu tai is to good for the rest of us. But the bush trek soon sorts them out. I ride with a lot of folks that are well healed. Nice folks they take me as I am, they have to because I don't give a tu tai.
