“So I had this one friend in college and she didn’t ask me anything crazy, but she definitely made a lot of weird statements. And one of my favorites was when she was telling us how her family only uses the Audi for vacations. And I was like, “Oh, well, if your family only use the Audi for vacations, like what are your parents drive to work? ” And she was like, well, the Maserati, of course.” Of course, the Maserati like how stupid could I be? Of course, they just take the Maserati to work.”

“So I grew up around people who had, you know, a good amount of money. And some of my friends had so much money, they didn’t need to work. And because of that, they were just so lonely and no one actually liked them for them. They just kind of liked them for the stuff that they had and the experiences that they brought. Anyway, so they would call me in the morning and be like, “Hey, you want to hang out with me today?” And I’d say, you know, “I gotta go to work today. I can’t.” And they would be like, “well, how much do you make in a day? ” And I would tell them how much I made and they said, “Well, I’ll give you two times that amount of money. If you skip work and hang out with me today.” It doesn’t work like that.”

“I once had a student asked if the HOA where I live allowed me to put up my own Christmas lights because their HOA was really rigid and they had to hire out a third party contractor.

“One time I had a rich person convinced me to go jewelry shopping with them, because they were like, “Tiffany, you have to go to this diamond store with us. The diamonds are literally so cheap.” And I was like, “You know, I’m not really in the market for diamonds right now.” And they were like, “No, you have to come.” And so I was like, you know, maybe they are really that cheap. I get to the store and I can’t afford anything. Nothing. And then that rich person comes up to me and she’s like, “Oh, Tiffany, you’re not getting anything?” And I have to be like, “oh, yeah, you know, it’s just there’s so many options. I’m overwhelmed, overwhelmed by the price tags.””

“My first year of teaching was wild for many reasons. But one of those is because it was quite the culture shock for me. So I had students who lived in environments so awful that I just couldn’t even wrap my brain around it. And then I had some students who at the age of 11, had more money than I will ever dream of making in my entire life. So it’s the end of the school year, and I had the student who was, you know, a really strong singer, and I told her, “You really should think about auditioning for this community theater show.” And she looked at me so seriously and said, “Oh, I would love to but we summer in Vermont””
