an dont forget although some of you are dropping serious paper, there are people who drop 6 figures+ easy in a year. cant speak for some of you but most of us that shop there are chump change, SAs go for big fish because thats where the big commission comes from not to mention the thousand of other cats dressed like some of us that dont end up buying and wasting their time. it's hard for them to distinguish whos got money when everyone these days dresses the same especially if your not a regular stickin to the same SA.
never the less im not defendin em cause i think they are wrong to act that way, just puttin some perspective on the subject.
86kobe i agree there most certainly are people that are of legit professions that make money that way, but come on whos carryin a brick of 2k in 5s, 10s an 20s when your one of those professions unless you got street cred or some form of aura. usually the only people who carry that kinda money are either cocky or knows no one will touch em for a good reason.
to put it simple, carrying lots of cash is putting yourself at higher risk and in society today it is not of the norm anymore cause its easy to store money safely in bank accounts with the convenience of credit cards an debit cards etc, and people tend to question things not of the norm like why your carrying bricks of money
thats my interpretation of why some cats will look at you funny when you pull out stacks
I worked at a car dealership and although mostly everyone dresses with the same trends it wasn't my job to guess who had money, I treated everyone equal and if I made a sale I made a sale, if I didn't I didn't, oh well, I was paid to be there anyway. It would be nice to get the commission but it doesn't break my day if I don't. I had some repeat customers that would come in and I knew from jump street I was selling a car and getting smoked up on some sour, yes maybe I treated those cats a little better but I never tried to belittle anyone who came to the lot I don't care if they came in sweats and beat up kicks I treated them with the respect one man ought to treat another regardless of position. I'm not scared to carry stacks, I'm not the biggest guy in the world (6'0'' 175), I don't carry heat, I just know in Bergen county or Manhattan it is very unlikely someone trys to jump me and even if they do unless they got numbers I'm not scared to throw down with them. Too me it is worth the risk of 1:10,000 getting jumped and robbed 2-5k for the government not to see what and where I spend, I don't use ez-pass, I set location on my phone to off, plain and simple there is no need for another person or the government to be able to keep tabs on me. Legal, illegal, or indifferent my business is my business. I am not George Orwell and this isn't the novel 1984. Oh and lastly I agree, my 25k spent there over the last 2 years is nothing compared to what some drop, especially because I don't always use the same SA and I go to 4 different stores (shame on the nj stores for not carrying ready to wear).
