    "What's a ZJ?"
    "If you have to ask, you can't afford it"

    Beerfest is an all-time quotable movie.

    I'm not bagging on Ezra, he's a kid, I'm simply pointing out that Iowa handled it poorly. I get that it is a sensitive topic for the kid but Iowa just can't do that.

    Iowa handled it how Miller wanted it handled.

    "Iowa simply worked with me to make that the public statement."

    This seems like a weird hill to die on but go for it if you want.

    It sounds like Iowa handled it exactly the way Ezra wanted it handled.

    I'm not wealthy if that makes you feel better. But I know some very monied people and price is the first thing they want to know, regardless. Frugality is a pretty common characteristic for people who have lots of money.

    I usually see being single as a common characteristic for people who have lots of money that I know. I had decent change back in my mid 20s. One day changed all that.

    No the original statement was a joke. So the response was tone deaf to the order of arrogance. I have worked on dozens of multi million dollar houses. The last thing rich people talk about is their money.

    Maybe it was tone deaf but I've heard it said not as a joke plenty of times.

    Shocking that rich people don't want to discuss their money with someone working on their house.

    Just change your name to "Dumb". All your posts are that way anyway. All CFs would understand.

    They don't even look you in the eye most of the time. People with three 50 million dollar homes don't need to brag about their buying power.

    {peaks head in}

    For the record, Iowa/Midwest (except Chicago) Rich and Wealthy people, are much much different than coastal or European/Middle East rich people. Its why Burberry and Prada and LV stores don't have price tags on anything. Because, yes, if you have to ask, you can't afford it. It's also seen kind of trashy to have to ask.

    So much for being a "life long fan".

    Maybe this will be a wake up call to kids who select the Hoks just because they are a life-long fan. Good luck to this kid playing at Wartburg.

    This post needs the "Dumb" button more than ever.

    There are plenty of people who could afford a $1,000 Prada purse but would still want to know the price. It's one of those silly cliches like "any publicity is good publicity" that's just not true.

    And no, I'm not one of them.
