I can't think of a single time I've ever cared about what my neighbor bought.
Exactly what I thought when I read this. The OP also felt the need to explain how each and every item they got a "steal" on...that is a telltale sign of someone who has to "keep up with the joneses". I've noticed that a lot of the worst offenders of this behavior also tend to deny it the most.
Sorry, but we're not trying ot keep up with anyone. No, wati....I drag my desktop computer outside all the time to "show it off".....including the new Thermochill 120.3 radiator I just got for it.......
As for the washer/dryer....they're LG's.....the washer is called a Tromm. Nice washer. Didn't want to flaunt it, but since you asked, pup.
We're not flaunting or bragging.....well, maybe because we got deals. But I'm a Ferengi, much as RossMan is.....and he certainly crowed about the car he bought below cost a year or so ago. Seems some can do it and some cannot.
C'est la vie.......
Was just trying to provide a laugh and smile..........
And for suburban crap.........ever mowed 3+ acres of grass with a push mower, kid? Or don't you think owning a mower worthwhile? Want neighbors that don't mow their grass?
Or what do you use to wash your clothes.....from your comment, certainly not a washer and dryer? How's the rock and stream working for you?
