When I was in college, my middle-class-roots fiance lived in a fraternity house with some relatively wealthy people.
One particular person sticks out for me as the high bar for spoiled behavior.
He had a penchant for wearing Calvin Klein Boxer Briefs:
They were roughly $25 each, (and this was before you could buy them at Costco.)
He sent out his laundry to be washed and folded (and dry cleaned), and never did any of it himself, but he absolutely *refused* to have anyone touch his underwear. In fact, because of this, he *refused* to wear the same pair more than once.
So, every single day, he would open a brand new, $25 pair of underwear.
And, every single day, he would throw out yesterday “s underwear.
If someone happened to touch his underwear for any reason, there would be another change.
He was ordering them by the case.
No one else has ever even come close to this on my spoiled-o-meter.
How do I know this?
His fraternity brothers, always happy to scrounge through the garbage, noticed that perfectly good underwear was going to waste. So they all stocked up. And then when they all (and I mean all) had more than enough underwear to go around, and there was still an endless supply, they started an underground underwear selling ring.
Part of me chuckles everytime I see this:
because I absolutely believe that it is a reference to what actually went on in this specific Ivy League frat house.
