Lately, I've been having some issues with people (guys and girls) persistently asking how much my bags cost. Of course, if I thought they were interested in getting one and were just curious about retail, I wouldn't be bothered by the question at all...but it's obvious that they're not asking for that reason. It goes something like this... "Is that real?" "Mmhmm." "How much does one of those cost?" "Eh, enough." "No, I'm serious, how much?" "It doesn't really matter." I always attempt to avoid the question because I've been brought up to NEVER talk about money. To me, it's a subject that should not be touched on when talking to people (especially ones whom I don't know well!). Inevitably, I'm with one of my guy friends (who, in general, aren't very tactful...). At this point, one of them chimes in, "She paid, like, $600 or $800 something for it!" Then, the person who originally posed the question says something to the effect of, "Oh my God! How could you waste so much money on that?!" to which I reply, "It's not a waste of money if I love it." This has been happening a lot lately to me (it never did before...I have no idea why it just started up now!) It really irritates me, as what I paid for my wonderful, wonderful purse should not be important to anyone but me. Does this ever happen to any of y'all? What do you say to avoid answering the question, or do you just matter-of-factly tell them retail?
