When I go to rich areas of Montreal (like Westmount), even if I’m just walking in the street or looking around in a store, I feel out of place. I feel as if everyone must know that I don’t belong there. I feel self-conscious about my clothes and manners. Looking at those huge, gorgeous old houses with ivy all over them makes me feel poor and insignificant. I just don’t feel at ease among people who hire nannies for their kids, don’t do their own cooking and cleaning and spend more money on one outfit than I spend on a month’s rent.

Do people from poorer neighborhoods feel uncomfortable when visiting more affluent neighborhoods?
