Brands

You KNOW you teach rich kids when the following conversation happens:

Student: I love your shoes.

Me: Thank you!

Student: Are they Louis Vuitton? 

(I’m thinking: Louis Vuitton makes shoes?!) 

Me: No…they’re from Ross.

Student: Ross?  I don’t know that brand.

Me: It’s not a brand, it’s a chain store. It’s one pay tier above Goodwill and one pay tier below TJ Maxx.

Student: I’ve heard of Goodwill, but I’ve never been there.

**Can’t make this stuff up, people.  You can only accept that sometimes you teach rich kids.  There’s nothing wrong with it; it can just be a sharp reality check.  But at the same time, hey: someone thought my Ross shoes were LV.  Snap.**
