If you can relate to 47/51 of these things then you were the rich friend in school

There was always a room in your house your mates weren’t allowed in

Everyone had a rich friend in school. They might not necessarily be the child of a millionaire, but they were definitely richer than the rest of your group. They were the ones with Disney Channel, always had new clothes for mufti day and of course had one of those fridges with an ice dispenser. If you’re feeling like you don’t think anyone in your group was like this, then chances are you were the rich friend.

You’re not necessarily spoilt or a Tory but there is a high chance you were more boujie than your pals. And being the rich friend at school automatically made you cooler. Everyone wanted to go to your house for sleepovers, despite the weird rules of not walking on a certain carpet.

You had all the gadgets everyone else wanted to try out, the house was always full of Waitrose snacks and your stationary selection was on point.
