  1. Rich people seem to be blind to their faults. I believe the pounds translate to a little over 23 thousand dollars a year. Imagine offering such a low wage when you've got money to burn. Amazing arrogance is on display throughout the world. Would that we weren't commoners, eh, Annie? Then we'd appreciate this sort of thing.
