Whether it's the middle age guy cruising around in his sports car, a woman all decked out in expensive jewelry, a spoiled teenager parading around in the latest "must-have" fashions or a person boasting about the four or five houses they own I hate conspicous consumption with a passion. This is not to say that everyone who does these things is trying to flaunt their wealth. But you can usually tell by their "I'm better than you" attitude. I have absolutely no use for those who think they are better than everyone else.
