Talking $30k millionaire ...

http://www.dallasobserver.com/2007-11-29/news/douchebags-in-the-mist/1


The No. 1 thing to look out for, Gormley tells me, is the car. "A BMW 3 series." The cheapest luxury lease you could get. "It's always a 3 series."

Now I have a term for something I have been seeing at the club for years.

I'm really liking it so far (Just got to page 3)

Enter text here."First, there was the valet stand advertising an $8 fee. Like the symbiotic relationship between a clown fish and the sea anemone that houses it, a $30,000 millionaire is never far from a valet. I handed over my keys to a black-shirted attendant and immediately spotted the next signal: a velvet rope."


I don't give a crap where I go I park my own damn car. No way i'm going to let some monkey scratch it (Ever read any Valet horror stories?)

$12 drinks.. screw that.. add those up and then extrapolate.. its better to invest that $12 into some stock or at least a 401k than pussy ass drinks.

I went into a Diesel store once to get a Diesel shirt, to be cool with the Diesel crew(oh, snap your shirt says Diesel.. sweet)... $70 a shirt.. seriously... what the flipping fluck..

I bought a puma shirt for less and it was like $25.. outlet stores bia(and it is a Ferrari shirt to boot)

Ok here goes....


I read the entire thing but yeah the best parts are the first few pages. I have never and will never want to live the life of these 30 millionaires. Its stupid wasteful and hurtful to too many girls who get used and abused. With that being said I have observed the life of both the 30k millionair Homo sapiens douchebagus AND more importantly the very similar 300k multimillionaire Homo sapiens jackass.


EVERYTHING went into the pursuit of simply trying to impress with things that you didn't actually own or bragging about potential "future" purposes. Exaggeration was also a key aspect of life, the car actually costs $220k, not $180K even though it was bought used at $150K........Getting drunk off beer is above the 300k multimillionaire, only the most expensive hard liquor on the menu will suffice.

I remember too many nights sitting in the car and watching the drunks stumble to and from the parties and bars on the street. Too many girls looking sick or being seduced by guys who only "Want her for the night" Posers cruising the scene with the music as loud as possible and yes, lots of 3-Series.

I had all I needed to be content in and otherwise hostile environment Airconditioning and a nice stack of CD's.

Yep.. most of them tank up at the bar, get right into their car (seems the BMW x3/x5 is popular) and drive to the next one I can't believe cops dont just wait outside these places, easy prey

The worst one I ever saw was when I was still working at Dunkin (There was a bar next door) Some kid pulls in, literally falls out of his car, drags himself over to the storm drain an pukes, stumbles back to the car to close the door, and then stumbles over to the bar.

In Texas, we also have what we call the "F150 Millionaires" (no joke); these guys make piles of money, but since they're not into impressing anyone, they drive nice F150s (and similar). These guys have class, unlike the ultra-trendy $30k Millionaires. But in defense of these $30k idiots, they have jobs, they don't have wives, and they don't have kids - they have nothing to spend money on except partying at night - nothing really wrong with that.

My brother told me once that the F150 was the most popular vehicle driven by millionaires,,,, of course he has one and of course he is a millionaire.

I would disagree but I think we'll have to wait for one of the female forum members to chime in before we get an answer to that one....



On a similar note...

I did get a call once to go and save a friend of mine...She had been invited out for the night and simply could not stand to be at these clubs any longer...in her words "Thats the last time I go out to these places."
