well said, but i still feel bad for IIIF10III, even though this thread may have had some other intentions.

i think IIIF10III has more disposable income than many others onboard here, even if they make more on paper. at different stages in life, priorities change, some things which one doesnt even have to think about right now are necessary expenses later.

secondly, there is this lifestyle thing. i.e a careless spender v/s a prudent person.

thirdly, a premium car a guy drives - does it have anything to do with the gross income?
i would imagine that some of those are owned by black money and some others due to inherent wealth. genuine monthly gross income hardly comes into the equation.
