I don’t think I’d sacrifice anything. I’d rather be happy than rich. I guess being rich could bring happiness. When you’re struggling for money, you have a whole bunch of other problems. And I guess you could be rich and a lot more content, if that makes sense. But to sacrifice or give up something I already have or enjoy, I don’t think there is anything.

This might sound bad...I don’t know. But if you’re talking about what ultimate sacrifice someone would make to be rich, well…I have a job that has me dealing with the public all the time. I’d give up never having any interaction with a person ever again, if it meant I was rich. I’d buy an island somewhere in the Caribbean. I’d be perfectly content.

Really, what wouldn’t I sacrifice to be rich? I’d sacrifice everything, even relatives. Okay, well…maybe only a second cousin. And I probably wouldn’t sacrifice my health. I’d buy a house here and one in Europe. I would get a yacht and black Lamborghini with silver Hello Kitty rims.
From University Heights (Music Teacher)
I would sacrifice my job, which I love. But a lot of people probably quit their jobs if they get rich or win the lottery. I’ve lived being poor for so long, that sacrificing things to be rich would be hard to do. I’m used to living without money, so to sacrifice things now…it’s hard to think of what I’d want to give up.
From Clairemont (Manager)
I would sacrifice my age. I’m 44, and…well, I’d trade that for being 65, if it meant being rich. Obviously, younger would be the better direction to go. And, I couldn’t trade my age for being over 80. I’d be too old to enjoy the money. If it was being forced to live somewhere in order to have the money, I wouldn’t want to be in Phoenix, no matter how much money was involved.
From North Park (Makeup Artist)
I would give up my boobs. I don’t really want them. They’re bad on my back. They’ll eventually get saggy. I guess if I was rich and gave them up, if I ever changed my mind, I could just buy some new ones. I could have them customized and really pimp them out.
