If I won the Powerball lottery is there a school or something where I could learn how to talk, act and dress like an elite person?

I wouldn't want my elite friends to think I'm just a bum who won a lot of money. 
What kind of story could I make up how I made all my millions by my own smarts?

      You can always edit it if you like, Kit.

      Regardless, it can still be corrected no matter how it occurred.

      Wait, you actually have blowable equipment?  Maybe you're not really a woman, either.


    And here I  was thinking you are anatomically correct.  Grrrrrrrrr.

    You mean lie about yourself? With that kind of dough, it won’t matter what other people think about your past. 
    Hopefully, all these years of traveling through this life hasn’t left you feeling that you’re ‘just a bum’, solely because you do not possess sufficient coin to hobnob with “elite” friends (Admittedly, I don’t know your situation). 

    By all means, applying one’s newfound wealth to become better educated is a really wise use of those resources, but pretending you are intrinsically different than who you are to impress other people will not necessarily bring the results you hope for. Wealth alone doesn’t equate to elite people (look in the WH, for instance), and elitists don’t always make for worthwhile friends.

    I had an older (now deceased) business buddy who was a millionaire. He was cool and didn't ever talk about his wealth except that he had sold his 4 Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburger stores AND his motorcycle shop some years ago to get outta that 'rat race'. Then my best buddy, Bill, told me about how much his tax free municipal bonds were paying him in interest. (!)

    And I had a colleague at my last school who loved to brag about his wealth.

    If you win the powerball just pay a bunch of people to be your posse,  and have them all act like bums. Then you seem super elite by comparison. Problem solved.

    Hey! ..good idea. Those would be my old drinkin' buddies. They wouldn't have to act, just supply them with cheap wine and cooking alcohol like we used to drink...

    ELITE HOW?  ELITE MEANING YOU ARE ALLOWED AT THE TROUGH WHERE THE RICH PIGS FEED?  Just flash your cash and you will be welcome.

    If you want elite OLD MONEY?  Take a hike.  No one needs nor wants your company.  They feed and inbreed off their own kind.

    IF YOU WANT NEW MONEY?  JUST HIRE SOMEONE LIKE TRUMP DOES TO LIE AND REPRESENT any lie you want to establish.

    I have a friend of the family who's a millionaire.  He doesn't look or act anything like what you'd imagine a millionaire to look or act like.  Those elites would take one look at him and not let him anywhere near the country club.  All of the snobby elitist types I know about in my extended family are all upper middle class people.

    Why even bother?
    If they cared, they could easily do a search of you online and learn you won the lottery.
