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?

I lost my mother at age 6 and my father at age 19. I had to walk the tight rope without a safety net. I still envy my peers who have even one parent for support and guidance.

My heart goes out to you. Lost both parents in the last few years and I'm old and you are so right , a treasure beyond belief.BUT You don't have to be related to love someone like a Mom.

Having parents doesn't mean something great necessarily. I moved out when I was 17, to this day I couldn't tell you if either of my parents were even alive. Neither wanted to have a relationship with me. Happiness is something internal, you don't necessarily need something to find comfort and happiness.

Having parents doesnt signify wealth. Some parents really suck.

For me it's the other way round. Person who gave birth to me died when I was 5, person who made her pregnant died when I was 8. Although the childhood from 5 onwards was shit beyond belief, still think I was richer for NOT having them in my life.

This is a dumb thing to include....having a mom die early in your childhood sucks, but not every mother is a good mother.....he might of been better off without one rather than having one who was emotionally or physically abusive. But its also important to include dads...the OP was only concerned with his own position, and not the position of millions of other kids who were raised without a dad.

I dont think this is a light hearted thread. The question is about what you could not have...and as a kid, this can cause a great deal of pain. Some answers...shoes that fit, not having to be careful at the grocery store because all you had was $30, camp, in style & cool clothes...not a bunch of chuckles.

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.

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.
