Ummm...what are expats? Sorry for the ignorance.
And while I know some richy-rich types, the worst I've ever heard is that their personal shopper didn't get the right size last week or that they had to be put on a waiting list for some 4k purse.
Then again, I won't sit and talk and flat out won't attend events where people like this congregate. I have less than no use for them.
My husband just last week told me that I should go to this opening to mingle with these people we are acquaintances with, now that we are going to be doing business with their lot, and I was like - are you crazy? Do you really want to chance me, with possibly some liquor, and those conversations? You can be pretty sure that in those circumstances they won't want to do business with us for very long.
