Growing up making any type of request that was out of the budget, be it the latest Jordan’s or the newest flip phone, you’d hear “money doesn’t grow on trees” so fast your head would spin. For the lower to middle-class households, parents worked hard for their money and made sure their children valued the all-mighty dollar and understood the importance of work ethic.

Twitter user Samantha Ravndahl sparked the conversation probing users to answer the question: “What was the pinnacle of wealth for you as a child?” and the answers are both funny and relatable af.
