“Mega Rich” People Discuss Activities They Partake In That “Regular People” Don’t Know Exist

Most people go through life in the same way. They work their way through school and possibly go to uni before getting a job. They work all week to enjoy time with their family in the evenings and at the weekend. And once or twice a year they may treat themselves to a nice holiday.

That is how “normal people” live. But what do the super-rich spend their time and money on? People have been sharing their stories on Reddit and some are pretty mind boggling.

1. Well, one ultra-rich person in particular. The CEO for a company I used to work for put a giant tank (pool) with a submerged “sunken ship” inside of it in his back yard so that he could scuba dive around in it.

2. Watching the weather report for multiple cities with ski resorts. If a lot of snow drops someplace, on moments notice a group of about a dozen will meet up at the private jet and go skiing for a couple days. During the trip, they might jet over to see a nearby sporting event. Then back to work as if nothing special just happened. A couple days later the designated accountant on the trip will send a spreadsheet around to everyone with their part of the bill for the trip. This bill can also include loses from the poker games played on the jet during flights.

3. Dated a guy who had a place at Ocean Reef (super exclusive, extremely wealthy community in upper Florida keys).

Sat with 5 other couples, going back and forth about whose mega yacht we should take out that evening.

Bob and Cindy’s is the closest to the canal… but oh, Jim and Donna’s is bigger! But, Mark and Tina’s jacuzzi is already heated!… but Dale and Ira’s has a full staff tonight!

I was just like… I have a kayak…

4. Buy property in London and dig out the basement 2-3 stories for conversion to luxury living.

5. They buy fine art – museum-quality pieces – when it becomes for sale and hold on to it until it appreciates to a point where it’s worth more to collectors than they originally paid for it.

That way, not only do they make a tidy profit, but they also get to enjoy the artwork in their homes as it increases in value.

6. Go abroad for dinner.

I hear of wealthy Londoners (or nearby) who simply jump in their helicopter and fly to Paris for an evening meal, then come home again.

7. This one is pretty messed up. My classmate at university was from a wealthy Russian family that had deep connections to the government and oil industry. He was so ridiculously rich that I couldn’t even fathom it.

Anyways he found a few friends of similar ilk and they started some kind of underground club where they would fly in really hot Instagram models from all over the world for “photoshoots”. In return for buying them nice clothes and things like that, they would hold just ridiculous sex parties where some really messed up stuff went down. Think the kinkiest of the kinky and that is what they did.

The only reason I even knew about it is because I worked as a part-time limo driver and these guys would occasionally hire me to drive their girls around. Before you ask, I never got in on the action.

8. I had some family friends growing up that had a handmade monopoly table.

It was wooden with silver pieces, and they used real cash.

9. Met a cool young girl at my college – she was like a princess – she said that was the closest English word to describe her status. Before coming to school, she had NEVER – dressed herself, bathed herself, walked up or down stairs without a maid holding her hand… I initially found this out when I heard her ask someone for help going down a flight of, like, 6 stairs. She was cool about it, though, and learning.

10. My cousins have travel-around tutors that go with them when they travel around the world, so they technically never miss school. They aren’t bound by the schedule of public or private schools in Texas, where they technically “live”.

Also, they were just in South America shooting Dove (apparently) and they killed 30,000 in a single week, between my uncle, his 15-year-old son and his 12-year-old son.

My step-grandfather (uncle’s father) was…displeased about the display, despite having been a hunter his whole life. Somehow, in his age, he’s discovered the wrongness of some of the things he’s killed. Specifically about doves he said, “I was at the [country club] last week and they have lots of doves out there. The regular gray ones and the white-wing variety. And they’re just so beautiful and I said to myself, ‘How could you have ever killed these magnificent things? How could you look at yourself in the mirror?'”

This man has been a hunter for most of his life and he’s sworn off of it forever. He doesn’t even fish anymore.

11. I work retail in a really rich area and you’d be suprised at the amount of obviously rich people who steal just for the thrill of it.

Being a salesman, I can usually spot a wealthy person based on their clothes or how they talk or even how they walk.

A fair amount of these people, from 11 to 60 years old, will just straight up shoplift just because they think they can. Partially because they dont think a 60 dollar item has any real value.

12. Lived in Iraq, we had this super rich family that their kid got kidnaped, they paid almost half a million for him to get released. After a month he got kidnaped again.

They never left the country knowing they can afford to buy their life’s. So they hired an entire squad to protect them
