debt (not even mortgage)--but not much income these days either.
But I’ll never forget the time DH (now ex) and I walked into a high end furniture shop. Beater car, both of us about 21 years old, blue jeans (probably with holes in the knees), T-shirts (probably wrinkled). The sales clerks looked at each other...one shrugged (I guess they were taking turns and next customer in (us) was hers). She grudgingly asked us what we wanted. A solid cherrywood dresser. She walked us over to a small one near the entrance, told us a little about it and oh so casually flipped over the price tag, expecting us to our faces to fall and us to say “OMG, that’s way too high, we’re obviously out of place, sorry to bother you” or some such thing.
Should have seen her expression when we said “That’s nice, but we really wanted something bigger.”
I prefer Pralines and Cream Ice Cream.
I gather I’m way behind the conversation. Just got on; can’t keep up.
