    I live in a nicer neighborhood than any of my customers. There are some that look at me like I am beneath them, but none of my customers do, so far. I don't really worry about it. I grew up in a "keeping up with the Joneses" town and everyone knew when someone else got a new car, or a computer, or went to Colorado to go skiing, instead of Vermont, etc. We knew who was going to private school and who was going to public school; who was going to the Ivy League and who was going to UCONN. It was ridiculous.

    I still know people like that, but I just feel bad for them. They look down on me, but they look down on just about everyone and they are obsessed with the people they can't look down on. The ones I know who are like that seem to age very poorly.

    i don't seem to have that problem, and my truck is worth about $200 bucks. usually, the young chics look at me, smile, look back as they are walking away, smile again, and invite me in.
