Okay, so I know that I get like this, but there are so many things about this quiz that don't work. All that "your own" stuff? What if you live alone? If you don't have kids, all your rooms are childfree—is that being spoiled or just not having kids? Is having a guest house the same as having a yard? Are riding lessons really the same as swimming lessons, especially if you live in a water-focussed area where everyone is taking lessons out at the lake from the Red Cross? Is dining with local political figures all that exciting when you live in a small state where everyone knows everyone else? It's just a weirdly inconsistent list and I wonder who put it together.

Ah, but we like that you get like this! You know me - I did it as a throwaway because I AM bored (when your clients are all hospitals, and many hospitals are associated with some sort of christian religious order, good Friday is pretty dead) and didn't do any deep thinking, but you make excellent points.

Private medical insurance is both a big deal and not, also - if you work for any sort of private company, like I do, you'll get it. And some of these - like having rich relatives - yeah, I guess that might make me spoiled, but it's not as if I had anything to do with it. Eh, I should find other annoying things to do with my boredom. LOL

I have similar issues with this meme thing.

What about the 'being to NY makes you spoiled bit? I mean - hello - what does that make people who live there?

The whole thing is rather subjective.

I got 26, as well. But they weren't the same ones that you checked, at least not all of them. It kind of made me sad to go through this list, because it made me realize that being over educated, poor, and without any future job prospects is just not a great way to live.

Sorry, I kind of rained on your parade here. *is grumpy and tired...and maybe a little bit spoiled*
