Happy for your friends good fortune not jealous

 

I have rich friends and am happy for them. One day standing in my friend's garage looking at his Bentley Super Sport, I asked myself what is it he has that I don't? It took me a while but I finally I figured it out.

Answer: I never owned a home with a swimming pool.
