I admit it. I am a very materialistic person.

Like today for example. We spent the morning buying my dh a mercedes. And now, I've ditched the kids ON A SATURDAY, NO LESS, so that I can work.

We could easily afford to live off only dh's income. But if I quit my job, we could not afford the mercedes.

And guess what? I feel no guilt about the situation.

Hmmm...an asset that appreciates rather than depreciates...now that makes sense.

Eh, whatever. Mercedes don't thrill me - they don't get good enough gas mileage.

Frankly, I don't think you need a reason to be a wohp, other than that it works for your family.

Was there a reason other than shouting "Hey everybody, look at me! I'm rich and can afford a Mercedes!" that you started this thread? Or was that the only one?

Why are you being mean to her? I know for a fact you posted threads when you bought your new SUV.

Are you always so unwelcoming to new members? I am new myself and was just about to post an intro, but if this is how this board operates, maybe I shouldn't bother. I've posted on lots of message boards before, and I've been reading this one for a while before I signed up yesterday. And I took her post as a tongue-in-cheek stab a dominating issue on this board.

Maybe if she posted about patios and decks it would be more to your liking?

Or are only "repeat" members allowed to post here?
