Laid-off 55-year-old human resources coordinator with wealthy day-trader husband takes unspeakably menial position, working for a week as a nanny. 8. Someone get the smelling salts! -- women at Barney's now buying $300 face creams only three at a time instead of six. 9. Ultimate white nightmare: from $70K manager to $12/hour janitor. 10. Dumping the Rolls Royce only because it's unfashionable. 11. My horrible McMansion is suddenly worth only $1 million, where's my bailout? 12. The riches are panicking, stuffing $1 million cash in $4,000 safes, now selling like hotcakes. 13. Socialite at charity ball forced to wear a 10-year-old dress for the second time.)
