I get this at work. Especially being quite young and an ex-apprentice (dispite the fact i've already been promoted to senior engineer (materials / NDT) in less that 2 years coming off of it).
Theres still a bit of snobbery i'm trying to shake despite running circles round all the grads lol!
It's just what you chose to spend your money on...
or that between the other ex-apprentices and current apprentices coming through the scheme at work we had...
'06 Ford Focus RS
'04 Ford Focus ST170
'02 Subaru Impreza WRX
'03 Honda Civic Type-R
'06 Renault Clio Sport 197
'92 Mitsubishi FTO
'?? Kawasaki Z750 (don't know much about bikes!)
'?? Suzuki GSX-R750
Still at the end of the day it just meant we had less money to spend on holidays / golf / fishing / knitting or whatever all the people who say "oh we obviously pay you too much" do with their cash instead
mostly its 'thats nice, what is it?'
Rubberneckers on the motorway crack me up :lol: , as do people walking around the car drooling when it's in the car park and they don't know you spotted them from a window
