Everyone has quirks, be it your mother, your next-door neighbor, your postman, the lady that works at the corner shop, Hollywood A-listers, whatever – it is undeniable that we all do things that others might find a little odd. 

Beethoven, for example, had a coffee-counting thing where he had to have exactly 60 beans for his beverage each morning, and Kesha allegedly rolls in glitter naked before every gig.

Chances are, these statements have raised an eyebrow or two, and although it’s not news that rich people are a tad different than us simple folk – have you ever thought about what goes on behind closed curtains?

Maids, au pairs, gardeners, babysitters, and other domestic workers to the wealthy, what’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen rich people do behind closed doors?” – this internet user turned to one of Reddit’s most thought-provoking communities, asking individuals to spill some tea on their experience with working for the rich. The thread has garnered over 7K upvotes, as well as 5.1K comments discussing the secret habits and oddities of moneyed folks.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) My sister is a nanny for an NBA player and his wife. The wife called my sister at 9 PM to come to their house for an "urgent" matter. When my sister gets to their house, the wife tells her take the trash out. That's it. My sister drove an hour round trip to take out the trash.

She has so many ridiculous stories about this family, but that one is my go-to.

Edit: My sister signed an NDA, so I'm pretty sure I have to keep his name under wraps unless I want a shake-down. Let's just say he's in his 20's and he seems like a decent guy. His wife is just an entitled, raging b**tch.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) I know a lady who's discreetly rich. One of those that unless you knew the more expensive but quiet brands, you wouldn't be able to place her. She would wear designer jewellery sets to the gym. Anyway, her quirk was she liked Costa coffee, so she'd get one one day, drink half of it, let it cool and then put the rest of it in the fridge, and reheat and drink the other half the next day. When she told us that she does this, and we asked her why, she laughed and said: I'm just frugal.

This seems sensible - sounds like she’s choosing where to splurge and where to save, and doesn’t waste money on things that don’t matter for her.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) My dad is an electrician and has worked in some very rich houses. He did a job in one where the couple only drank very posh fresh coffee. Fair enough, who wouldn't? But they had a cleaner who was permitted one cup of coffee each day, but not their coffee. She had her own separate coffee, but it wasn't even a decent, if cheaper, brand. It was the cheapest possible sort to buy, Asda smartprice instant or something. If a person comes to my flat, whether they are a friend or the plumber, they are a guest and they will drink whatever tea or coffee I drink because I see them as equals. My dad has told me that some of the stingiest people he knows are also the wealthiest.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) I used to be a live- in nanny for the CEO of a major German investment bank in Berlin. They were a lovely couple with a sweet baby girl, and they made me feel like part of the family from day 1. They paid me well, had a separate car for me and weren't concerned by what I did in my spare time. They were very generous, lovely people.

My only gripe is that they had strange eating habits- some days they would have three enormous meals, and other days they would 'forget' to eat all day. I was often too shy to say that i was hungry

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) I've only babysat one time and it was for a friend of my grandparents. All I really had to do was hang out with their 8 year old grandson for a night. Overall it was a pretty cool night. All we did was play 2K and Madden all night so it wasn't bad.

But anyway, this family wasn't like billionaire wealthy, but wealthy enough to where they left me an envelope with $500 in it and told me whatever I don't spend on food, I can keep. Wealthy enough to have sped off in a Maserati for the dinner they were at. Wealthy enough to have a pool, jacuzzi, and nice BBQ builtin to the backyard out back. You get the idea, they were just an old couple with some money, and they were taking their grandson's parents out to dinner one particular night. Leave me with $500, so I think to myself, I might as well splurge like 30 or 40 bucks on a meal for 2 and pocket the rest. I was like 17 or 18 at the time so I can't say it was a negligible amount of money. Anyway, I take the kid outside to my car across the street, which, at the time, was my older brother's 2005 Toyota Corolla.

He gets in, takes a look around, and goes "Where's the button that moves the roof back?" Sorry kid, no convertible here. He tells me that his parent's only have convertible cars and that he's only been in one other car that isn't a convertible, and that "he isn't my friend anymore."

I thought that was pretty weird. Throughout the night, he did also make some interesting "rich kid" comments, such as asking if we could go to a restaurant that had steak on the menu. He revealed an interesting bit about his parents, saying that they keep talking about bringing him a sister when "the time is right." Apparently the kid asked the dad when the right time was and he said when "mommy stops being afraid."

I then learned that the kid's mom and dad divorced about a year later. Felt bad. He was a cool kid, didn't really have that shi**y spoiled vibe. More like an innocent, curious, steered wrong by his parents vibe.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) Worked for a beverage distribution place in a very ritzy resort area for awhile. Guys assistant shows up and says he needs a pallet of Evian for his bosses house. No problem. We load it on the truck and drive it up to his house.

After unloading we ask him where he wants it and he leads us into the garage and asks if we can help unload it. So we start downstacking and carry cases of this s**t into what I thought would be the kitchen or pantry. Nope. Straight through the house to the back deck.

He was filling his hot tub with Evian.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) Totally forget how they got their start in life.

I used to work for a guy who ran his businesses into the ground and declared bankruptcy (more than once I believe). He then married rich and his wife paid for him to go to school for a decent certification. He now owns a business that's slowly failing because of how he runs it, but he and his wife still have plenty of family money, and they're well-respected in the community.

He complains nonstop about "lazy millennials" who are so "entitled" and "think they deserve free stuff from the government." It bugged me so much to see how he was so dependent on grace and luck that just doesn't exist anymore, but he thought he was so much better than anyone who wanted a leg up.

My brother married a relatively wealthy woman and instantly started giving us financial advice. He tells my sister she's stupid for renting instead of owning her house, when he's never owned a house himself, either. He says, without a hint of irony, that my other brother is stupid for working to support his disabled wife who can't work. He says I could make so much more than I do as a schoolteacher, when he knows I made my money before I changed careers and am quite financially stable, thank you very much. Dude has a credit score in the 400s, has never held down a steady job. He owned a restaurant that she bought him but ran it into the ground in 2 years. He's a musician but makes no money doing that because he gets fired from all of his gigs for being an a**hole. He berates me for investing in bonds instead of crypto. It's ridiculous.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) I was a babysitter for rich people once.

Their silverware was constantly filthy and caked in what resembled peanut butter and regret.

Their children were pleasant, but refused to brush their teeth more often than their hygiene-impaired parents until I told them gross stories about gingivitis.

The mom had a small Buddhist altar in the living room, but was also extremely vocal about her Christianity.

Would repeat the experience. It was mostly getting paid to help with homework and watch Voltron in pillow forts.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) Im an assistant to a rich guy, i help him run his business. Most of the ones i know are very entitled, they dont understand no. I have know idea how some of these people got rich. I watched my boss have a full blown temper tantrum because a customer called him 40 minutes before he was leaving on vacation. Full blown melt down, this guy barely does anything and goes on vacation at least once a month, screws over his customers on a regular basis. We ordered a burger one day and they used a seasame seed bun, he does not like seasame seeds so he threw the burger at the cook and basically lost his s**t. Always complains about how shi**y his life is, even though he buys anything and goes anywere he wants. Its hard to explain until you see it, but money and greed really screws people up, once he gets back from summering in LA, im looking for something new as i just dont care anymore.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) The most bizarre was this newly rich young family in Vienna. The bed time routine for the kids (aged 3 and 7) included basically a spa treatment for both. I haven't seen that amount of products in a child's bathroom (they each had their own) in my life. The poor 7 year old girl had next to no hair on her head but I was required to slather her in the most expensive adult shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, hair oil, and some other things I didn't recognise - every night.

They only had one tiny box of toys and time spent playing was set up for 30 minutes after they brushed their teeth. Dinner was normally a bland fish fillet and a ton of salad. Not a grain of sugar anywhere in the house. Hot cocoa was made with skim milk and pure high quality cocoa - no sweetness to it whatsoever, it tasted awful.

They had time to explain EVERYTHING to me the first time I was there and I received an inch thick file with lists and procedures to follow. What they didn't mention was that the older girl was still wearing diapers at night. It made for a very awkward conversation with the child and I only hope I was sensitive enough to not cause her any future trauma.

Very, VERY weird.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) Wasn't really behind closed doors or anything but I delivered furniture to a very rich person's mega-house once only to discover, as we were going from room to room, a few rooms were completely bare and empty. I didn't really register it at first because I figured we would be putting furniture in there with the load we were delivering but that didn't happen and I mentioned to a co-worker how the one room was bigger than my living room and completely bare and he said "maybe they're getting stuff during another round?" and the guy heard and said "nah that room is staying empty - I have no use for it. Same with the others too." I couldn't really wrap my head around a lot of things after that. First off to be rich enough to afford a house like that, then on top of that, purposefully have parts of your house go completely unused because you don't care about them. Like...why even buy a house that big then? Why overdo it and leave some of it unused? Why not just buy what you need and use it all? Rich people are weird.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) Gosh, where to start?

The wife was driving through the home improvement part of the city and saw a sale on bathtubs. So she popped in and bought three. As she was leaving, she saw another tub she liked and simply had to get that one too. She wasn't renovating a house at the time.

They refuse to throw away food. Used by and best before dates are completely ignored, to the point where I found a tin of seafood marinara which was 15 years out of date.

They have a holiday home in the south pacific and have a housekeeper clean it three times a week yet they only visit 3-4 times a year. When they're not visiting, no one lives there.

When the family go out for dinner, the father will happily pay for the expensive meals but not the drinks. The kids (who are all teens or older) have to pay him back for the drinks and he will send reminder messages about the amount. Yet when any of the kids offer to pay for the meal, he won't accept.

The wife is a hoarder and will often take way more samples than any normal person. She always makes sure to take all the shampoo/soap etc from hotel rooms and if she passes the housekeeping trolley, will grab as many as she can from there too. Yet she never uses them. They have a whole bathroom cupboard dedicated to samples.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) Technically behind the garage door...

Neighbor won the lottery. Nothing huge, but nice. He took the lump sum, and upgraded his little ranch to have a big a*s garage and in ground pool and cabana. Never was anyone there prior, but after, he had SO many friends. One of the first things he bought was his DREAM car, a red Lamborghini.


One day in the summer, he was having a party, and his "friends" wanted him to show it off, so he started it up, and was revving it in the garage when ... it caught fire. Burned the house to the ground, taking half the money he had in cash in duffel bags with it. Turns out, he didn't have insurance. Ended up using the rest of the winnings to rebuild his old house, but lost everything. Somehow he managed to push the Lambo out of the garage, and to this day, there's a half burnt Lamborghini under a tarp in his backyard, 20 years later.

They also had absolutely no clue that I lived a 50 minute drive away (without traffic, up to 2 hours if there was a wreck) in a town they had lived in all their lives. I lived on a base, so it's not somewhere off the beaten path. They finally realized about a month before I moved away and were shocked at how far I drove. No clue. Made my day almost 13 hours for less than minimum wage.

But they loved their kids and so did I, so what's to complain about?

eta: they were good employers, just clueless. I was also young and didn't really realize my worth. When I left, they were extremely sad to see me go. They did give me some high ticket items after a few months, including a plane ticket for my own personal use. A few months after I left, they said they really didn't realize how awesome I was. They were quirky, but not terrible.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) I was a nanny for a pretty affluent family for a summer and on the whole they were really nice and great parents. Two things stood out to me:
On one occasion, they had family friends visiting with their three children, so I worked a full day taking care of the five kids while the four adults just hung out in the house, ostensibly working from home but really just drinking wine and hanging out. I understand occasionally having the nanny come while you're there so you can work well from home, but nannying five children whose parents were ten feet away was a little absurd.
The second thing is that they reused ziploc bags. I honest to god probably spent at least 45 minutes a day washing, drying, and organizing their ziploc bags.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) During the summer while I was on vacation from college, I helped my mom at her first landscaping/greenhouse job. We went to this particular lady's house in the rich part of town, big Antebellum home, she was a realtor and all that jazz. We called her Dragon Lady because a) she looked like a wrinkly old Dragon and b) she hoarded the most ridiculous jewelry and always wore it. Even in her "pajamas".

We were taking a job to fix up (replace nice shrubs and flowers that she was just tired of) her back yard. She was a terrible excuse of a human. Mean spirited, snide comments, the works. But she had an inordinate amount of fresh young men always in and out of her house. Like the entire time we were there. Quite the variety. And if we ran into one she always introduced them as her "cousins" and we were like yeah ok sure you old crusty bag.

She would flounce around in sheer robes with little to cover anything underneath. The guys followed her around the house like they were on a leash, it was like she WANTED us to see her because she was always in her sun room being doted on by her "cousins". Putting lotion on her reptilian skin, bringing her drinks, food, etc.

Then when she was done with them a slick nice Mercedes would pick them up. We only witnessed the car a couple times but man she was weird. And gross. She's probably a fossil by now I guess. She was a relic then and that was only like 7 years ago.

People Who Work For Or Interact With The Rich Describe The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen Behind Closed Doors (30 Stories) Well I've been in a couple really rich peoples houses who have had fires.

One is a semi famous boxer, 2 world championship belts, which he had sitting on his kitchen table. The weird part was, he had pictures of himself hanging all over the house. Not with his kids or his wife in the pictures mind you. Just of him. It was weird.

And another couple full on screamed at their kid because he allowed smoke to get into his trombone case. Not sure how he was supposed to prevent that but whatever. They also lost their minds because the insurance company wouldn't pay to get them brand new "handmade cabinets imported from Italy."

One family lived in the middle of nowhere. Huge house, had a hot tub room, every bedroom had a walk in closet and a bathroom suite, crazy stuff like that. But this guy absolutely loved his four wheeler. He told me he paid to add an attached garage specifically for his four wheeler. And the four wheeler was the only thing allowed in the garage.
