Low Class and High Class

A social class basically defines people placed in a certain category. For example, when I speak about people who hardly ever have money and are working and not getting paid how they should be, I am speaking about people who are considered to be very "low class" or the "working class". But nowadays, people see everything certain ways. Many people still believe that there is a high class, middle class and low class. In my case, I believe there is only a high class (Rich people) and Low class (Non- rich people). To me, rich people are considered people who have it great, who have more opportunities for everything, who complain and feel that minor problems are actually a huge problem for them. In my case, whatever small minor problems they have, I would be more than grateful to have them. We, low class people, struggle much more than they do. Low class people struggle more than high class people will ever have to struggle.

In today's society, there is nothing but High class and Low class people who battle their struggles differently. Being put in a category seems almost ignorant. Why do people need to have labels on them? They do not, but in today's society, there are issues and troubles that people do not approve. I have come across plenty of times when I have had to deal with someone who was high class. Most of them were very snobbish and believed that not finding a maid was the biggest issue in the world. The rest of them basically acted as if they were people and were very polite to me.

My father works on remodeling homes. He is constantly going from place to place unless there is a big job to be worked on. There is this family who my father has worked for a long time and also their family's family. He is very close to them, who have never steered him wrong. "Perhaps people we think we know best are the ones who surprise us most" Dumas was saying that we get the most surprises, whether they are great or horrible, from possible family members and close friends. (Dumas) This was the family that lead to me believe how real the quote is. They are an interesting family who lived out of Chicago, very close to Indiana. They had called for him to do an estimate and since it was a long ride away, it was almost like a road trip. I tagged along with my dad and realized that as soon as we reached their neighborhood, it was very beautiful. Quiet, giant houses, there were homes that owned small farms and their animals. Right off the bat, you can tell this was a high class neighborhood. As soon as we reached up their house, I never felt so poor. It was huge and had a huge yard and a driveway that could fit about 5 cars. Walking inside, as they tell my dad they had just bought this house and basically wanted everything redone; I roamed around fantasizing about where my room would be, or what table I would put here and there.
