I was approached today by one of my Facebook friends, and was asked to send money to this person overseas. Now here is the problem . Their reasoning was that I was an American so I must be rich. Man do I wish that was true. I'm a modest person of modest means. I make a living but that is it. What's funny though is that I'm like most Americans. The rich in America are only the top 1-2 percent. I don't even make the middle class. I dwell in the lower bracket where most people call home.
I wish I could send this person some money but I just don't have it to give. What does bother me is the misconception that all Americans are rich. Hey World No...we are not. Sorry.
