Money v. Happiness

Only rich people say, “Money can’t buy happiness.” If you ask a poor person, “If you had a million dollars, what would you buy?” they will never say, “First let me tell you what I couldn’t buy: happiness.”

Me: If I had money, I’d buy a trip to the dentist.

Rich dude: You know the dentist doesn’t sell happiness.

Me: That’s okay, I’d still like to get this cavity filled.

Rich dude: So you think not having a throbbing abscess in your jawbone will bring you happiness?

Me: Well . . .

Rich dude: See? This is why you’re poor. You think too small.

Me: I guess you’re right. Thanks for the advice.

Rich dude: My pleasure. That’ll be $5.
