I was at Sam's Club yesterday afternoon with my friend Randy. I didn't intend to buy a lot of items, but I did want to browse their DVD section. I saw lots of kids films and TV shows and I really wanted to fill my shopping cart with at least five. I reached for a DVD about cartoon super heroes because it was only five dollars but Randy condescendingly disapproved of my purchase attempt. I silently debated whether to put it in my cart despite his admonition, but decided that I didn't want to reinforce to him my childishness. To justify not buying it, I do have stacks of DVDs I have yet to watch and I just spend a shit load of money on taxes, clothes, and an iPad. What bothers me is that I acted out of fear of how he would think of me. As much as I try to pretend that I don't care about how people see me, I really do.
