You are STILL and CONTINUALLY missing the point.MarcTwoSix;390844 said:But the thing is you automatically think that anyone that can afford to spend a bit money is just showing off, which is absurd
We've had this debate a million times
I don't have any interest in cameras yet you've bought a bunch of expensive cameras
But no, you aren't showing off
But anyone else that spends money on something that doesn't interest you is trying to show off
But of course, you aren't showing off with your expensive camera equipment
You also don't show off with telling us how much help you give others
None of that is showing off at all
But God forbid someone feels like spending more than a 100baht for a nice meal 555
I do know the difference between showing off like you are somehow superior, and someone who needs something expensive for business or pleasure.
If you are a skilled motorbike rider then it makes sense to own a powerful, expensive bike. A bike like that would be lost for me with my skills. Same with owning a Ferrari that you only drive in the city. But, if you are a big business tycoon, then maybe you need a fancy yacht to impress your potential customers... even if ocean sailing is not your "thing".
Same with fine dining and expensive wines... it's a waste of money for me. But, if that is what others love and can afford then by all means enjoy yourself.
