“Worry” is not always the point. I’m a huge gear head and have spent stupid amounts of money on fast cars, motorcycles and boats. I’m not poor, but not am I rich by any means. Some of us spend money on our passion by pinching pennies wherever we can.

I have a close friend who really is quite wealthy. I’ve seen him agonize over $50 purchases just becasue it was not something he saw the value in at that price, but it was something he needed for more mundane reasons.

I remember a guy making a Smartass remark about another friend of mine who owned a “cigarette” boat but was pinching pennies on something else. He said (about my friend) “he really can’t afford that boat”. He didn’t know my friend had paid cash for it.
