In 2010 alternative rock/R&B artists Travie McCoy and Bruno Mars had a hit song called “Billionaire” on the track; the two commiserated about how badly they “want to be a billionaire so frickin bad” and that they’d “buy all of the things they never had.”
To be rich is the dream of most people who are not, and those who are wealthy just don’t get why it’s a big deal. Being born into wealth is like hitting the lottery without playing.
At some point, everyone who has ever struggled to pay a bill, put food on the table, or keep a roof over their heads has had the dream of hitting it big to take all their problems away!
Recently, a Redditor in the r/AskReddit thread asked, “which hobbies that people do “scream” rich people?” and boy, did this thread deliver!
We combed through, found some of the best answers, and compiled a list for you to check out! So pop open your favorite champagne, peel back the lid on your favorite caviar, and get ready to do a deep dive into the hobbies of the rich!

One user said, “My neighbor is a yachtsman who makes a middle class living racing rich people’s yachts. So, I would say hiring people to indulge your hobbies is about as 1 percent as one can get.”
Things only the rich would say
