I am always trying to impress someone, mainly me, then my wife , then my son-in-law and daughter..
This I think is normal.
Impressing is done much easier with an automobile....but if you are not taken in with my 15 year old Saab 900, then its your loss.
The house......not proud of this, its a hundred years old to several years old (build and upgrades), but the design dates back to the 18th century...about as old as our very dated Constitution...
Affluent neighborhood ?
Not in conservative, but poor southern PA.
Here the people work, at least most do...
A decent house is far more important than a transitory motor vehicle...
Obnoxious neighbors ?
I have to watch myself here, I could be the one (being a slop, a collector, and bi-polar at the same time)..
IMO, the wealthy can be the most disagreeable/unlikeable of all...I would not want to be Ebenezer Scrooges neighbor.
