Notes on the Upper Muddle Class

In this article “Notes on the Upper Muddle Class,” written by Lucinda Rosenfeld. Rosenfeld’s best friend, at his private school, lived in a mansion and had luxury cars, along with many of her classmates. At her old public school, students would take about how they are on welfare in the halls, while students at her private school drove luxury cars. Rosenfeld thought that was part of the lower middle class due to the difference between her classmates’ luxury cars and her parents’ station wagon. Later on, she came to acknowledge that she was more fortunate than most, her parents were able to afford a house and trips to other foreign countries, unlike many others. She learned exactly what Nick’s dad, in the Great Gatsby, told him, “Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had”(1).
