İf they're douche bags about it.
Not really, they just make want to stack up that money even quicker than I'm already doing so.
I've been noticing a lot of threads like this. Your question is too broad. Anyone who says flat out yes or no isn't thinking. It would seem to me that some wealthy people are just plain arrogant, selfish and brag about their wealth. Others make it clear that they have money, but are still good people for the most part. (I personally know a family like this, and they're some of the nicest people I know.) Some are just hardworking people who are important to society, and they know it, but it doesn't change who they are. (I also know people like this, and they're really great, fun people.)
But please stop asking questions in this manner.. It's just prone to stereotypes and unfair judgement.

I'm poor as sh*t but I love the high class. They're actually really nice people.
i hate anyone with a large ego, whether its warranted or not.

I have a thing with viewing rich people as snobs. I'm guilty of seeing rich men as corrupt, rich women as divas, and rich kids/teens (more so the latter IRL than the former) as spoiled brats. Still, sometimes real rich people play into it, like Kim Kardashian (who is so shallow, selfish, and trashy, she makes Paris Hilton look like a lady). The worst are those who think they are above the law, like Leona Helmsley did years ago when she refused to pay taxes.
I did know a rich guy about my age, though. He was from NYC, and he was new money. I don't know what his parents were - I think they were in business or something. He was actually one of the least pretentious people I knew - quite down-to-earth. This guy admitted to me that his family sometimes acted a little full of themselves (his younger brother most of all), but they were decent people. But I guess the damage had been done by TV.
I kinda have a loathing for WASPs and other blue bloods. It's because a lot of them live in their own little gated communities and act like the rest of the world is dangerous. So I guess if some WASP trophy wife would stay where her maid lived, she wouldn't last a day because she needs her Chanel products, her network of ditzy friends, and her glass of top-name chardonnay (don't worry, this is a hypothetical example) - to say nothing of how she would fare if she had to live somewhere like Ethiopia. I always cast them as bad guys in my writings.
In most of my stories, the portrayal of rich people varies wildly. I include rich people who are nice and rich people who are stuck-up snobs.

I usually don't mind them as long as they aren't obnixious about it and constantly rub it in our faces that they're rich.
I once went to school with this girl and she was rich and she was so annoying about it. She even rubbed it in my friend's face once about the fact that she drives a BMW like she's a queen. I hated this girl so much, you have no idea.
Some of my best friend's are wealthy and I myself have recently ran in to a fair amount of wealth but as long as a person is humble about it I suppose there is no problem with but I guess those who flaunt their wealth do not truly deserve it.

As for the question, no, I don't dislike people based on what is in their bank balance. The basic rule of thumb I go by is if you're nice to me, I'll be nice to you.

also, i don't judge people based on what is or isn't on their bank balance, i find that to be disgusting, quite frankly. i judge people by their skin colour, sexual orientation, gender, wether we're friends on facebook and/or religion, like a normal decent human being.
