The user under the nickname Djcard1 published a question: "What is an activity the ultra-rich partake in that regular people don't even know exists?" on AskReddit. In response, the network's users sent thousands of examples of the unusual hobbies and preferences of millionaires.
Other ultra-rich people, on the contrary, prefer to organize their favorite leisure time activities at home. "The CEO for a company I used to work for put a giant tank (pool) with a submerged "sunken ship" inside of it in his backyard so that he could scuba dive around in it," RedBarnGuy revealed.
According to Pelican737, using the term "summer" as a verb also fits the weird things millionaires do. "We're going to summer in the Hamptons, i.e., move to another location for the summer, presumably another residence that they also own," Minuteman_d explained.
"Well, it's getting on into April so we better get the spring couches and chaise lounges out of storage, and swap out the winter dining table and china for the spring set. Better get out all the matching drapes, too," another user joked.
No surprise, many users recalled rich people who have different nannies, helpers and other stuff to do things for them and their kids. "Met a cool young girl at my college — she was like a princess — she said that was the closest English word to describe her status. Before coming to school, she had never dressed herself, bathed herself, walked up or down stairs without a maid holding her hand… I initially found this out when I heard her ask someone for help going down a flight of, like, 6 stairs," Seeteethree wrote.
"I worked in a bookstore in New York, which was located in a block of luxury apartments. One day we had a couple. They told that they just moved in and need to buy a pile of books to beautifully arrange a home library. They instructed us what types of books they need. But for the most part, basing on our recommendations, they bulk-bought those books which would show their guests how intelligent and well-read they are. They paid us 25,000 dollars just to show someone that they have a library," one of the users wrote. This comment received more than 33k likes and became the most popular in the entire discussion.
