Meet Rachael Sacks.
The 20-year-old Manhattan college student has furrowed a few brows penning a piece -- presciently titled, “I'm Not Going to Pretend That I’m Poor to Be Accepted by You" -- in which she unabashedly embraces the wealthy lifestyle her doctor father has furnished her with.
"I’m not one of those people who try to be poor to relate to people," she writes. “I am sorry that I was born into great financial circumstances and my father likes to provide for me,” “I am sorry that I don’t have to go to a state school to save my parents money. What do you want from me?”
"What the f***? Could they not be that obvious? I should have stopped at my apartment and put my bags down then if they were going to judge me like that," she said. "And I got my purse at a 70% discount so they can f*** off.
"I am sorry that I was born into great financial circumstances and my father likes to provide for me. I am sorry I don’t have to go to a state school to save my parents money. What do you want from me?"
She later went on to say that "people shouldn’t make others feel bad about their own personal finances," and that "it just seems really petty and makes you look bitter and unhappy with your own life if you are casting nasty glares at college girls in Gristedes because you’re a cashier."
