A wealthy woman purchased a beautiful mansion on the ocean. The neighbor next door was a farmer who owned an acre of farmland and lived in a very simple abode that had been in his family for a hundred years.
The farmer came over to welcome his new neighbor. “Welcome to our beautiful community,” greeted the farmer as he handed her a basket of freshly picked tomatoes.
The wealthy woman made a disgusting face, pushed the tomatoes away and said, “Please do not trespass onto my property again. I do not hobnob with the inferior.”
“Oh my goodness,” the farmer replied gently, “and where in this beautiful world have you ever met a person who is inferior?”
Which was the richer of the two characters?
