The thread about your reaction when people ask the price of your bags reminded me of this pet peeve... I have a serious issue with why some people LOVE to offer information about their purchases. For example, once we're out to lunch with this other family, and their girls... and the mom proudly anounces that her daughter bought these boots for $5...and she has the daughter show us, and model the shoe...whole nine yards. A little while later, the girl's on the phone snapping her gum, and announces that they went to blah store the day before and spent like $130 on clothing for her and her family and OMG they bought soooooooo mannnnnnnnnnny thingssssssssssss! Another time, I'm at school, and this girl announces to me and this other girl how she bought this purse for $5 and it's so cute...yadda yadda yadda... Why do people do that? I never ever bring up the price of my things, and it's b/c you never know who's around, who's listening... and i don't want to alienate anyone by mentioning the prices... but for some reason certain people love to do that.
