Why I buy stuff

I just read something on Tumblr here: http://tumblr.tastefullyoffensive.com/post/112048365818/bathroom-poets-photo-via-reddit (what I got out of it was the quote, “We buy things we don’t need, with money we don’t have, to impress people we don’t like.” The quote is attributed to someone but I can’t read it)

and it made me think about the last time I bought something just to impress someone else. It’s not something I’ve done many times in my life – the only occasions on which I have were to impress a narcissist.

So if you’re buying things in order to impress other people, rather than question your motives, look harder at the person you’re trying to impress. Chances are they’re not worth it.
