A friend shared with us how shameless people can be just to “fit” with other friends and most of the time it’s just an inferiority complex.
Here is the story:
“In my circle of friends, we have those that come from a rich family and those from a normal or under average income family. However, we did not care as friendship is about being there for your friend and not based on money.
However, one certain individual has reached the pinnacle of his “hao lian” and now keeps putting up a show to flaunt his “wealth” but often S in his own pants.
After one of my friends bought a Rolex, he decided that he will need one to fit in. He managed to buy a fake Rolex from overseas and claims that he has connections in high-end boutiques which allowed him to get the rare watch. (Its actually from a push cart located in Johor KSL mall)
As it turns out, the whole group of friends knew that the watch was not real and yet he goes around showing his watch and said “Do you know what time it is?”. Obviously, he is not a smart person for doing this in the first place and he is also oblivious to all the shaming he gets for flaunting his non-existent wealth.
The real joke was, that he knew that he is not known as a rich individual among us and puts a fake story to cover another by saying that the watch was bought with an instalment plan.
Little did he know that buying luxury goods with an instalment plan is like taking a smack in his own face by saying “i want show i got money but i no money”
