You misquoted another member, Greyscale, when you quoted the following in your response after mine. I wrote that, not Greyscale...I wouldn't want someone else's words put in my mouth, so I assume most others wouldn't, either. I am not offended, so no need to apologize...at least not to me.
I might get a larger house, but it wouldn't be in the trendy rich-people neighborhoods. I'd buy a bunch of property and build a large, functional house with functional shit in it. Nothing would be "don't sit on that..." quality.
Finally, to the OP: I can tell you already that your "scorekeeping" system and need for external validation will never be satisfied. You will never earn enough, receive enough praise or be high enough in the "caste" system to satisfy you. Because there will always be someone else earning more than you, better than you or higher than you.
So you'll try and achieve that, too.
In the vernacular of us lower-caste people, it's known as "keeping up with the Joneses", except that in your perceived world of satisfaction, it's the Hearsts that you have to keep up with.
Good luck with that.
