When people have a lot of money, they spend a lot of money. I get that. Well, I try to understand that at least. But I still feel that certain things shouldn't cost certain prices. For example, a shoebox-sized studio apartment should never cost $2000 a month, but there are places where this is the norm. And we (sort of) accept it and move on with our business focusing on clipping coupons and pinching pennies so we can afford our lifestyles whatever they may be. But then I hear of Paris Hilton purchasing a puppy for $13,000 and my brain nearly short-circuits.
It's an adorable Pomeranian. But why does cuteness cost $13,000? That puppy better poop diamonds. And he might. He's already being pampered, of course.
