Today’s question is: what’s up with name dropping??
Background: It seems that I live in a world of name droppers. Well that’s not entirely true, only a select few people I encounter are name droppers. But it’s something I don’t quite understand, at all.
What’s with name dropping anyway? Why is the name of a person or product so incredibly important that anyone would need to use it?
ie: I went to this great party the other day and I hung out all night with <>.
I suppose people want to make themselves feel better about spending a small fortune on their name dropped item so they need to tell everyone about it. That’s it right? It’s all incredibly lost on me.
One day someone I know was carrying a purse. I said I liked it, because it was cute (I know you guys don’t quite understand the cute purse thing, but for women purses can be cute). She told me it was a <> and that she was lucky enough to get it on sale for somewhere around $1400. I about choked.
$1400 for a purse? A purse? OMG (think of all the stuff you could buy with that money.)
I assume name dropping happens everywhere. Anyone have any good stories??
