Many individuals flaunt their acquisitions of costly items that others find perplexing. A user asked the forum, “What’s something you wouldn’t buy and don’t understand why people do?”. Let’s look at the top responses from the forum.
LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE
“Anything that says, Live. Laugh. Love.”
“$70000+ trucks that you only drive to and from your office job.”
“NFTs. Surprised they haven’t been mentioned yet.
I understand that someone might purchase one because they see it as an investment in something with increasing value. What I don’t understand is why anyone thinks it would have value.
Normal people do not care about whether you have an “original” digital image if we can get everything besides the certificate saying it’s an original for free. So you’re just betting on a small group of equally deluded people to care about something that has no inherent value.”
“Greens powder. That stuff is so expensive and has the nutritional value of half a cup of spinach. I can get a whole bag of spinach at Aldi for $2, so why would I spend $40 on a tiny tub of powder that tastes disgusting.”
“Engagement rings that cost like…as much as a popular car.
If you are worried that she might say no if the ring isn’t that expensive, she is not “the one.”
“Latest iPhone whenever they arrive.”
BUYING WHAT FAMOUS PEOPLE BUY
“Something some famous person threw away. Like a tissue.”
“Expensive designer clothing, as I find comfort and functionality more important than brand names.”
“Weddings and extravagant first birthday parties.”
“Diamonds. I never understood those.”
“Bulldogs or any other smooshed face dogs. Their breeding and existence are cruel. That being said, I have an English bulldog and do English and French bulldog rescue.
I wish these dogs would stop being bred and stop being so popular, and people would understand the health issues they suffer. I will never buy one; however, as long as there is a need to rescue them, I will forever rescue them.”
SNEAKERS AND OTHER STUFF
“$700 sneakers. It’s a $150 plain white T-shirt that simply says “Supreme” on it…lol. Goodies. You’re ‘cool’ dude. If you think so.”
People are buying Subway sandwiches in NYC. There are plenty of real delis with far superior quality and probably cheaper LOL.
People go to McDonalds when a sit-down restaurant is cheaper, lol.”
EXPENSIVE GYM CLOTHES
“Super expensive gym clothes that are ugly anyway.”
“Expensive cars. All the people I know who have one barely drive them because they don’t want to add too many miles on it. What’s the point?”
“Big ‘trucks’ or Utes as they’re known in Australia. A good Ute shouldn’t take up 1 & a half parking spots at the local shops.”
SUPER EXPENSIVE HANDBAGS
“Buy random expensive like that world’s smallest bag (smaller than a grain of salt) or “World’s most expensive trash bag,” which is literally a normal trash bag for 1,780$.”
“Bottled water where tap water is perfectly fit to drink.”
PREMIUM COFFEE DRINKS
“Expensive coffee drinks from places like Starbucks. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but I can make my own delicious coffee at home on the cheap.”
