    Status Anxiety

    Posted by inspir3d on October 22, 2006

So he made brave attempts to emulate John’s spending habits, purchasing branded shoes while studying in JC and upgrading to a car the moment he got his first job. Gary always funded this lifestyle with debt. It seems that no price is low to keep himself ahead. Read the rest of this entry »
