Poor Boy Rich Girl – Story

A poor boy was in love with a rich man’s daughter. Overcome with his love for the girl, the boy proposed to her. <>

However, the rich girl derisively rejected him and said, “Your monthly salary is equivalent to my daily expenses. How do you expect me to marry someone like you? I can never love you so forget about me. Go find and marry someone else of your level.”<>

Despite being rejected so hurtfully, for some reason, the boy could not forget her so easily. Roughly 10 years later, they accidentally ran into each other in a shopping mall.<>

She immediately recognized the man and said, “Hey, how are you? I’m now married to a very smart man, and his salary is $15,700 per month! Can you beat that?”<>

The man, hearing those painful words from the woman he used to care for, held back his tears and said nothing. Not a few moments passed when the woman’s husband came back to her side.<>

But before the lady could say a word, her husband immediately recognized the man she was talking to and said,<>

“Sir? G-good afternoon! I see you’ve met my wife!”<>

“Good afternoon too, Mr…?”, said the man.<>

“Mr. Carter, Sir!” The husband then turned to his wife and said,<>

“Dear, I’d like you to meet my boss. He owns the $100 million project I’ve been working on!”<>

The woman, left flabbergasted by the turn of events, was not able to say anything back.<>

The man just smiled and said, “Well, Mr. Carter. I’ve got to get going. I have important things to attend to. It was splendid seeing you today. Have a great day!”<>

For a minute, the couple just stared at the man as he walked away. Having been over her initial shock, the woman asked her husband in disbelief, “That was your boss?”<>

“Yes, dear. He’s a very humble person but his life is quite a sad story. <>
They said he once loved a lady but she dumped him because he was just a poor boy back then.<>

Because of that, he worked really hard. And because he’s smart, he became successful. Now he’s a multimillionaire who earns millions of dollars a month. Unfortunately though, he couldn’t move on from that heartbreak and remains unmarried still.”<>

The husband went on and said, “How lucky would that lady have been if she had married that man?”<>

The lady looked in total shock and couldn’t utter a word.<>

Morals of the story: Life is short. Furthermore, it is just like a mirror – you can only see as much as it reflects.<>

So don’t be too arrogant or proud by looking down on others because of their current situations. Things and circumstances can change with time.<>
