    I really honestly thought people like this were a myth.
    I honestly thought this guy was joking.
    He wasn't. From another forum.

    "There's also a new Apple TV out. I just ordered one. Not sure why I need it, but it was only $199."

    My reply:
    "This is so odd to me. You have no idea why you want one? Then what made you get one?"

    I was floored by his response. FLOORED.

    "If there's a new Apple gadget, I feel deprived if I don't have one. I even bough an Apple watch a few weeks ago, but after a week I decided I didn't really need one, so I took it back."

    De...prived?!? Really?!? OMG....

    So.....you don't feel deprived if you don't buy every new Android / Google gadget that hits the market? I know someone similar to this...will buy anything Apple, just to have it, but may never use it.

    I know girls like this. They have to have the shoes and purses to fit their "Image".

    That's excessive! What a waste of money, time and energy to get something you don't even want. But I know too many people like this. What's worse is some don't even have the means or money to be like that.
