Poor is relative to the location and economy my friend. I'm poor by Northern Virginia standards, but 30 miles west and I'm filthy rich.

I wish I knew what book I read it in- it was one my Mom was reading (she's a teacher), but I always thought I was "rich" until I read it. There were a few different criteria, but the one that hit me was the reference to food. It said lower class people discriminate between quantities of food- the more the better. Middle class people are concerned with quality of food- they eat at the finest restaurants in town. The upper class, however, know the best restaurants in Paris, Rome, Tokyo . . . and frequent them regularly.

But, one thing I learned from doing mission work in Mexico is that being "rich" has nothing to do with how much money you have. I met countless families in pallet and cardboard houses with a dirt floor that had much more joy in their lives than some of the suburbanites here.

I voted lower-middle class. We live in an older neighborhood, most homes built in the early 1960's. Some of the homes qualify as middle-middle, but probably now a few more as lower-middle. It's hard to pick just where to put the classification.

He paid a lot more for housing while he was there. Luckily, he received a housing allowance. His home in Boise was nicer and larger, but would sell for MUCH less than price of his place there.
