I understand that it is justified by image but I find that sad. People are trying to buy their image.
All that leads to is requiring you to by the next thing to maintain that image.
You end up in a never-ending "buy" cycle because you need to buy your image, because you don't have another identity to cling on to.
THOSE PEOPLE should move back home haha
