This was sort of an interesting but common predicament that a lot of people have and that I just saw recently. A person I know is currently trying to maintain a certain budget in his lifestyle by not doing things such as spending so much money dining out all the time. Now he mentioned that he has been able to follow that plan as he has been doing things such as bringing his own lunch to work. The weird thing is, just then I saw that he was spending money by buying his lunch instead and it was more than an average meal price. So, that kind of contradicted what he just said.
I then asked about that and the funny answer he gave was that he was wearing a suit and all as he was meeting some people that day and for him to bring something from home and carrying like a lunch bag to work doesnâ€™t feel right to him while at the same time he feels that it will project a less than admirable image of him. I personally find things like that to be a little on the being too subconscious side. Surprisingly though, I guess this type of thing happens more often than we can imagine.
Special occasions and those types of things I can see where you are kind of expected to do certain things, but I personally think believing that dressing a certain way obligates you in having to say spend as much as you look is a bit much. I mean, do you mange your finances for yourself or to please others as an example? It just seems like something back in oneâ€™s early school days.
