    In this case, her choice of car is indeed indicative of her status in society. Although clearly she has not been brought up well...

    What's really funny and pitiful is how she has the audacity to cause so much trouble and yet is afraid of having her photos taken. Seems like she's missing part of her brain too?

    Rich and well off people trying to "demanding respect" because of their status... so, what's new, have been happening since Kings and Nobles and now, the rich, have been around...

    The only difference is now they're action and bad behaviors could be exposed for all to see...

    A friend of mine is a contractor.

    He drives around a in Lexus. So I ask him, why do you need such a car.

    His reply was, "it is easy and quicker to get a loan...."

    I heard that from a business man friend too. You get respect for the car you drive.

    My ride stops Orchard Road many times and didn't make any issue.

    Most super rich would not want this kind of attention. Usually it is those that are not there but want to show off will act this way. Best is to ignore them and don't let them have that opportunity.

    5D Mark IV with a few choice L lenses will be my ultimate status symbol.

    And a 800mm would be good.. 5d4 with any most other L lenses would be too mainstream.

    I'm a broke joke. I drive an old Corvette. Old but still a Corvette. And it will flat @ss outrun your Lexus and your Ferrari.

    A few days ago here in T town afternoon time...hot and humid...two teenagers came upon a car in the middle of the road with it's hood up. They honked their horn. A man stepped from the front of his car and proceeded to shoot both teens killing one. That chick and her Italian trash wouldn't make it over here.
