No, I know it's the 'way of the World' and all that; I'm certainly not amazed by it!
Last night, I'd been reading all sorts of stories re the Recession, not least the fact that £1 BILLION of tax payers money will be going towards bonuses of those who already rich, and it just stood out, as an example of excess, whilst others suffer.
Hang on, let me get me cup of tea...
I spose I can't stand any form of obscene excess, tbh. Having seen people at the very lowest end of the Human wealth scale, in Bangladesh, I doubt I could ever be someone who could spend millions on ultimately worthless things. But that's me.
As for a lad spending £12k on a watch, as CFH says; it's his money to do with how he pleases. It may not be 'right', in someone elses eyes, but it's the choice of the individual.
No, I spose it's more the fact that such a sum could ever be spent on a 'tatty old car'. Or any such thing. As for the £50m painting, well, that's just ridiculous, I think anyone will agree!
I just feel that there has to be a 'line', somewhere, you know? Maybe people need to consider a limit to their ostentatiousness.
S'all relative. I am very wealthy indeed, compared to many people in Bangladesh. For which I am always aware of, and truly fortunate. And personally, I'm I'm absolutely truthful, I don't actually 'want' much more; I certainly don't 'need' it.
Ok, well, maybe just one more bike.
Just a little one....
