It all comes down to image!
These people just have to be seen at the right places, join the right clubs, drive the right cars, live in the right places, in a never ending
competition to be perceived as having "made it" to the top. I have seen it all before, shallow people with usually no redeeming features whose
lives revolve around projecting an image and having the means to finance that image, even if it means doing so on the backs of others. I personally
love to see them crash and burn, it becomes entertaining.
Most only act this way and spend this way because it is what is expected of them, being a high earner. Of course, it's all for show and there are
plenty of opportunists out there waiting to pander to their ego's and relieve them of their money. Bottom line is, they are no different from the
rest of us, they just have a high opinion of themselves and expect the rest of us to be in awe of their achievements and wealth.
I remember seeing a story in the British press a few years back when things in the city really started on a downward spiral. Investment bankers
having high-end cars repossessed, and one firm of specialist divorce lawyers seeing a large uptick in divorce applications in the banking sector.
Seems when the money stops flowing, the high maintenance silicone enhanced trophy wives also see the opportunity to screw them over royally one more
time. I got a giggle out of it imagining pudgy mid-life banker types giving up the Ferraris for Fords and having to move back in with mum, as their
newly divorced wives sat chuckling in the stockbroker belt houses, with custody of the Range Rovers.
