I have always heard rich people say that talking about money is rude..well others don't seem to think so. We all know someone who no matter if you are talking about which fast food place has the best french fries they will manage to bring how much they spend or how much their things cost into it.
"I'm house hunting...we said we won't spend a nickel more than 800,000 because then we may be forced to downgrade to a 70,000 dollar car and who needs that right?..lol"
Or goodness forbid you compliment them.
"that is a beautiful ring" O this..well we personally sent someone to sierra leone to dig up this blood diamond, smuggle it here where Leopald, our diamond cutter, made it look magnificent, i mean the clarity alone is to die for"...you know, you could have just said thank you...
We just threw Skye a 20,000 dollar party for her 6 month b-day, do you think the flying elephants were too much???, we should have done more, we can afford it after all...
Or they have to tell you how much their handbags, shoes etc cost with no prompting...i mean geez okay then, we all have nice and expensive things, i don't carry the receipt and insurance policy in my bra(lol) to show around....so my question is...
Are these people insecure about something?
Wanting to make other people feel somehow less then them?
Maybe they never had anything nice, married well or did well for themselves and want everyone to know?
or are they just bragging?
Am I the only one that finds this well...rude? in a word
