    Speaking of disposable income.. I was at TJ Maxx and some rich hag, dressed wayy too fancy for where she was, had a shopping cart with like, five purses, and was ranting about how they were all made in China. Then she started making racist jabs at the president, and moaned about having to spend money on poor people. No matter the build quality or whatever of the tablet, there is nothing more disposable than garbage rotting in a delusional, spoiled brat's closet lol.

    I don't want to completely jump off topic, but I feel like sometimes people confuse questioning obamas policies with being racist. I could be wrong though.

    On another note, I would rather have a nexus 7 than the tablet referred to in the op.

    Rich people don't shop at TJ Maxx.

    If you live in a state where my products are legal, I'd be happy to employ you as a distributer. I'm always looking to expand. It's a very profitable business with as much as a 10,000% markup. If you're from outside the U.S. however, it's a no-go. Too much of a legal gray area.

    You'd be surprised, my local TJ Maxx's has 'runway' sections where all the stuff is $200+ and straight from the runways. Don't think you'd find a Burberry suit there, but lower-tier brands like Michael Kors are always in stock. People like that lady aren't rich enough to exclusively shop at Sak's, but are too uppercrust to realize where they are lol--aka, people with delusions of grandeur.

    Yeah, those kind of people aren't rich. They're strivers who like to act like they are and treat everyone else like they aren't to reinforce their delusion. If somebody makes less than $500,000 a year I don't consider them to be rich.

    I suppose the technical definition of rich is $1mil+, but I'm sure she was among the top tiers of the socioeconomic ladder in my upper-middle-class suburban city, enough to casually **** away a good $1000 on a random Monday of discount shopping. It's less the gross income and more the attitude that I find off-putting. I suppose I was more referring to the general attitude of disdain, arrogance, and self-entitlement (which itself doesn't necessarily correlate with gross income). They recently installed a Neiman Marcus downtown, and it's attracted flocks of people exactly like that. To me, the definition of disposable income is spending $1000 on a pair of leggings lol.

    It seems to me that the entitled, "I'm better than every body else" attitude is most prevalent with second generation richies. People who grew up dirt poor tend to realize that a bigger billfold doesn't equal a bigger man. However, I'm not of the opinion that spending tons of money on overpriced random crap makes somebody a bad person. You'd probably indulge in similar activities too, if you had endless cash laying around.

    Funny how that works--the 1st generation builds everything up from scratch so their kids can grow up spoiled. Not all or even most, but some tend to overindulge for what their own past lacked. Those kids lack the same drive their parents had, so unless they have connections and/or a family business that doesn't require a PhD or MD, they'll never do better.

    Don't think overindulgent spending breeds bad personalities, just a recklessness. If they earned it through hard work, all the more right to spend as they see fit. Even with infinite money, I could never buy $1000 leggings. No amount of wealth can undo my middle-class upbringing in quiet suburbia .

    When, or if I finally get around to having kids, they aren't getting squat for inheritance. When I die, all my excess cash will be spent building a giant fiberglass/aluminum pyramid to cover my grave. Why not, right? If they want something they can just earn it themselves.
