* from a Note I posted on Facebook *
Do you know people who choose their friends based on how much "stuff" they have?
Or people who only want friends they think will be impressed with how much "stuff" they own?
Or, better yet, do you know people who only make friends with people they know can get them more "stuff?"
This normally leads to the "Keeping up with the Jones’s" pattern, where other people by "stuff" so the people who have "stuff" will think of them as equals and maybe want to be friends so they can stare at their "stuff" together.
These people are stupid.
Thank you for your attention.
