Hahaha....pretty funny....I have had that conversation many time....but he’s a BMW future owner, I dont even bother....LOL
All kidding aside....
Does he say the same thing when driving down a road where all the homes are $500.000 or more when one could live in a 800 square foot apartment?
Does you friend drink beer or any type of alcohol? Does he go to bars or clubs…if so why? There are several thousands of dollars wasted right there….what about making a lunch all the time and never go to a restaurant/café/cafeteria and does he make his own coffee and lug it around in a thermos all the time? What about buying a flat screen TV? A regular $150.00 21 inch tube TV is ok. Why spend money on sports events when you can watch it on TV? Turn on the 21 inch, have a glass of water and eat celery….MUCH MUCH cheaper..CD player….why???? turn on the radio….lots of free music there. Ipod/touch….why spend hundreds, buy a $10.00 portable radio the size of a lighter. Cell phone??? What's wrong with dropping a quarter in a payphone when you actually need to talk to someone???? Or wait until you get home.
How about that $100.00 pair of Nike’s and $100.00 Tommy jeans with a $500.00 leather jacket???? A $15 pair of shoes a $10 t-shirt and $10 sweat pants will do fine with a $30 jacket from Wall Mart. Why do any sports to stay in shape? Push ups, sit ups and jumping jacks cost nothing.
How about vacations? Why go on a trip for when you have the internet and TV? Why a BMW, Camry or an SUV? Why not a Toyota Echo with no A/C or power package, manually roll down those windows….get exercise and feel the fresh air…or better yet, take the bus the rest of your life.
Why buy a cottage? A boat? An ATV, a motorcycle? Hell why even spend $500.00 on a nice mountain bike when a Wall Mart one is $100.00 and will do the same? It might be heavy as hell but hey….you get to do exercise without getting a membership.
We could go on forever and ever on this topic. And no offence, it’s kind of useless chatter if you ask me (not you or even about asking the question) but the subject as a whole. I have had the same conversation with others who own $100,000 cottages with $60,000 bass boats being hauled by a $50,000 truck when I paid what a bass boat costs and I am the one being told I wasted my money. I personally can’t stand cottages and boats…so to me they are as useless as masturbating with sandpaper.
Good luck in your future conversations with your friends…..
My 2 cents.
