It's especially irritating when someone asks how much a new tech piece costs. It's okay if it's in a truly curious manner, but if you just want to know so you can slam me for it, **** off.
Yep, and it's usually the latter. They're usually not genuinely curious, they usually ask that question so they can make themselves feel more fiscally responsible and look down on you.
EXACTLY! Everyone's first question is that when they see mine.
It's like they almost want me to say "More than you can afford pal" or "if you have to ask..."
Yeah it's pretty annoying, they try to make you into some kind of a snob because you choose to spend your money on the newest technology, but just end up making an ass out of themselves. Everyone has something they like to splurge on and spoil themselves with, for me it's technology. And for people who never spend money on nice things for themselves even if they can afford it, well that's your own stupid problem. That money won't be of any use to you when you're dead anyway.
