Don't let it bother you,it will wear off.Im only 34 but I worked my ass off for the things I have and some of the people we grew up with are always saying things like we are rich or must be nice to be you.But I don't feel I have to explain my self to them.But my wife and I are very good at managing money,and when all my friends went to college I learned a trade and got into the job I am at now and they have degress and tons of bill and are cutting grass or doing something other than what they went to school for,not my problem I made the better decision.I am probably15 years younger than most of my neighbors and most of them always stop by to look at the camper when its here and love it,some are campers to so we have what I call shop talk about things.

I get that treatment all the time. I make decent money, and my wife has a doctorate and is a school administrator so we are "comfortable", especially since the cost of living is pretty low where we live.
The most common one is "Must be nice" and my response is "Sure is". As a matter of fact, I usually just go ahead and tell people we're rich and that shuts them up most of the time.

The only comments our neighbors have made is, "Whoa! Cool!" or "I saw your new Jayco - enjoy it!" However, anyone who does ask gets The Story. (This will be the long version ....)

The Tucson Medical Center holds a mega-raffle every year. Tickets are $100, prizes range from fantabulous to meh. It's a good cause, so we bought a ticket last year, and a ticket this year. Well, this year, while we were at our tax-lady's office, on 1 April, we got a call from the Raffle People. Promising it was not an April Fool's joke, they told us we'd won.

At first we thought, fine, we've won dinner someplace. But no, we'd won a Jaguar! We don't want a Jag, lovely though it sounds; and a two-seater isn't practical for us anyhow. So we sold it back to the dealer for about 90% of its value, and used the windfall to a) finish a fair amount of work at our son's house, b) get new windows in our house, and c) get our Jayco (with a trade-in). We didn't tell many people till the money was all spent, though.

I can't imagine worrying about what a neighbor is thinking concerning us and our finances, regardless of anything they say or do.

I can't wait to see the reactions from my neighbor when I purchase a zero turn mower next week.

My wife bought a nice new 2015 F150. When she comes home from work, I get to pretend it's mine!

My truck is an ugly little Nissan, 1985, well used. Oh, and did I mention that it is ugly? People make comments about me being rich when I drive her truck, but never say a word about my beauty!

Not worrying about what the neighbors think or say doesn't mean you don't have to cope with it when they say it to your face. Usually I try to take everyone's concerns seriously (sometimes as if they were three years old), but this'd be a case where I'd feel free to be as "witty" (sarcastic) as I wanted to.
