You are probably encountering jerks trying to apper 'upper class', by thier labels they flash, the sunglasses you see and the fake knock offs Rolex,ect, or maby even real watches they can't really afford. The bad behavior or snobbish attitude is usually the give away that they really are not from a well educated,socially trained,confident social class. Most adult, what I consider upper class individuals are not rude,crast,or impolite and don't waste thier hard earned wealth on overpriced physical trappings that most people associate with wealth. Upper class is not about the total net worth of a person,or that individuals i.q. I has more to do about how that person was brought up to think about themselves,thier place in society and thier relationship,behavior and roles in life. There are great success stories and miseralble failures in that class just like any other. Somehow our culture seems to be too focused on the 'Rich and Famous', who are not the 'upper class' people that I am describing. I doubt you or anyone else for that matter are able to recognize 90% of the real 'upper class' millionairs who come into your store. Most won't even describe themselves as 'upper class'. Don't trust your eyes, few will be wearing a Rolex or $200.00 sunglasses or large diamond rings. The best clues are people who seem ordinary, unassuming, quiet but friendly and normally always conclud the transaction with a thank you. Remember the size of the bank account does not earn one the status of 'upper class', there are a lot of Beverly Hill Billies in the world,they are just not as obvious as 'Jethro',they wear different clothes and speak with a different dialect and act like 'jerks' thinking this is the way rich people are supposed to act. They confuse money with education and social skills.
