I was trying to not read ahead but I wasn't sure how much time i was going to have today so I watched this video last night, and then I lost all my resolve and watched chapter 5.

It is one thing to know someone is rich and another to see how rich, especially when their interactions with you are on a much more equal footing. I think also that is because Duke Vedris doesn't do displays of wealth and doesn't bother to impress people.

Though I do shy away from saying that displaying your wealth is wrong. too often having a showy culture is seen as crass and less civilized. to me it is much more about how you treat others especially the less rich.

I work at a four star resort/country club, and our members run from those who treat staff like humans, to those who nitpick every dime and dispute charges until they see their own name signed on the bottom and then act offended,

at least my co workers treat people decently. I have been places where housekeepers and dishwashers are looked down on and status is super important. I was literally told that I shouldn't date someone because "he was only a housekeeper" when we were reservationists and all living in the same company housing.

I absolutely agree on the toxic bit, as our united front was against my middle brother and I haven't spoken to him in 16 years.

I think that showing a united front while feuding is a very sibling thing to do. my eldest brother may be aggravating, but he is my aggravation, and no one gets to poke at him but me.

Oh babies how I love and want to strangle you all.

it wasn't until a few reads ago that I realized the duke was saying Tris has a crush on him. I have no idea how i mussed that line so many times. I thought it was a bit out of place the first time i saw it but i made a point of looking at their interactions this read and she dies blush a lot when he talks to her.
