Therapist for the rich

I once worked for a multi millionaire who always talked about feeling guilty about his money. He inherited his money from his dad. He spent wildly! He bought his in laws an exact replica of his mansion and all the furnishings. He did this so his kids would never be “homesick”. Every toy and possession his children had at his house he had a duplicate at his in laws. He didn’t ever want his kids to miss a toy or possession while at their grandparents so the duplicate of every item helped insure that they would “never be sad”

So my rich boss was constantly either spending money wildly or feeling guilty. There was no middle ground. One day he called me excited that he found a way to deal with his guilt. He found a therapist that only took patients who were multi millionaires and the therapist would help him feel less guilt. He explained to me that his new therapist could only help rich people and their problems.
He saw the therapist five days a week and then would binge spend.
I was much younger then and frequently wished I had his problems.
