What was something you thought was an ‘indicator of wealth’ when you were a kid?
@Ripple - LOL - when I was a child there were more exciting things to think about.
Somebody having something I didn’t
Owning a Raleigh Chopper
Yeah, I didn’t think about, or understand wealth. I don’t now … just an old hippy.
A kid who always had money in his/her pocket.
A brand new bike.
Our neighbour had a car, as a kid that meant they must be millionaires
For me it was owning my own box of Rowney paints and a lovely book of cartridge paper
@Ripple , A council house wiv an inside toilet !!
Having brand new clothes. My Mum and Dad worked so hard to provide for us but Dad was only on a low wage in a rural area where there wasn’t much else in the way of employment. Mum used to knit us lovely new cardigans and jumpers and we had new underwear but everything else was cast offs from wealthier cousins and jumble sales. I went to primary school in my cousin’s posh Irish convent uniform …… while the other kids went without uniform!
My mum used to search all the army surplus stores for my clothing
I spent the first ten years dressed as a Japanese admiral……
Colour tv I think.
@Jazzi , Blue/Black and white in my day ??
Behave hee hee
Compared to the standards of my childhood home, my ratings were:
Shoes without holes
Food to eat every day
A Light bulb in every room
Not having to hide under the stairs when the rent man called.
never even crossed my mind as a kid
I wanted a horse .
shoes without holes in them
