I bet every one of you have had experiences when you wanted something, but you couldn’t get it because your family didn’t have the money for it or perhaps you only used to get a certain thing once in a very rare while.

This ultimately led you to believe that certain things are only reserved for rich people and if you were to eventually get it, you would feel high class for having it.

Maybe it never was posh in the first place. Regardless, people spent their childhood thinking that. One day, author and teacher Eve Dunbar posted a tweet asking people what were some things that they thought was the height of class when they were children. And people responded with these very memories.

Bored Panda invites you to take a look at what things the people of Twitter grew up believing was high class. Vote on the ones you’ve enjoyed the most or the ones that struck a nostalgic chord with you. And hey, while you’re at it, why not leave a comment in the comments section below?

Reading this made me sad, thinking that such a normal thing (for me) can be the sign of an inaccessible dream life for some children.

100% the same. Started earning money at 12 to get my first set of keys to a rusty jalopy, and I will never let go of the meaning of 'VALUE,' which a brand new car does not have. When something is worth 25% less almost immediately, it's clear that a lot of the price is just in being 'brand new'. Meanwhile, a standard car model will undergo 'major' changes only about every ~15 years. Waste of resources...I'll never be rich enough to justify throwing money out like that.

Oh boy, the difference between lower and upper middle class is HUGE. No one acknowledges that the lower middle class is actually poor.

READ THIS REALLY IMPORTANT! Benetton are an Italian Family, they do cool ads BUT in fact, in Italy they own concession for like 80% of the highway, they earn A LOT of money from them but they spend very little for maitenance, for this a bridge in Genova have collapsed and more than 40pll died.... they are the emblem of hypocrisy.. be carefull whit people like this, they told you "hey we are all brother we care about people and world" and meanwhile they make profit on people shoulders. Most of Italian people hate this family (except for the ones who believe that they believe in that ads" sorry for my english! not my language :/

This type of appreciation for your parents is something I think "rich" kids miss out on. I have so much respect for my parents for all they made happen for us with what little they had at times.

Growing up, I had a wonderfully crafted hand-made dollhouse. It was made by a good friend of my mom's, originally used by her daughter (who had by that point grown out of it and was our family's babysitter). It was really special. All the better - we were able to return the favour and pass it back to the daughter some years later when she had a child of her own. :D

The cost of Jordans have always been outrageous. Spending money like that on shoes for a kid who will quickly outgrow them is just a poor financial decision.
