SMH. If you don’t want to get your day started off on the wrong foot, go click on another story right now. Reason being, this one is definitely going to put you into a funk, especially if you’re dreading going into work this morning.

Recently, an anonymous person started a Tumblr called “Rich Kids Of Instagram.” And, it’s about as obnoxious as you’d expect it to be. Featuring the slogan, “They have more money than you and this is what they do,” it includes dozens and dozens of photos of rich kids doing crazy things that you’ll never be able to do. Ride around in expensive cars? Yep, they do that. Spend their days at “the lake” pouring bottles of champagne into one another’s mouth? Yeah, they do that, too. Cruise down giant inflatable slides that sit on the side of yachts, eat huge meals, and blow hundreds of thousands of dollars at the bar? Yes, yes, and yes. They’re rich and they’re not afraid to show it!

Er, make that their parents are rich and they’re not afraid to show it. But, no worries. By extension, they’re also rich, and they’re set to make a lot of people out there mad by using Instagram to boast and brag about all of the crazy things that they have. It’s enough to make the humblest of people mad. And, it also has people wondering whether or not the parents of these kids care about what they’re doing. After all, day after day we’re hit with stories about how people are losing everything because of this country’s bad economy. And yet, these kids are basically making a mockery of the idea of a “bad economy” by blowing thousands of dollars on completely ridiculous things.

If you were rich, how would you want your kids to act? If you saw them posting photos to a Tumblr page called “Rich Kids Of Instagram,” would you advise them to stop? Or, do you think these are just kids being kids? Check out some of the photos that have been posted to the site below. And then, head over to the “Rich Kids Of Instagram” Tumblr to see more. Be sure to let us know whether or not you’re outraged by what you see.
