I grew up just outside DC where you have Old Money and New Money families.. the new money people always had bigger homes, newer cars, and often had obnoxious children. Old money families carried traditional values, belonged to "old money" country clubs, and having a large bank account didn't really impact them much.. it was just the way it was and nobody was impacted by it.

I can assure you that some old money people are just as obnoxious as some new money people, albeit for different reasons.
