    As suggested by UK Investment bankers. Somehow "Shopping for clothes at Goodwill" and "Sneaking your family into Hometown Buffet for dinner" didn't make the list.

    I don't know if I should say "oh rich people" or "communist socialists!"

    That's a bit long term. And would come as something of a shock to the college student.

    Yes. All that traveling I do.

    Fuck you cunt.

    Again. Fuck you cunt. I ain't quitting the slopes or go to a public mountain.

    Now this is useful.

    It's about time you sold that mansion in Key West, cancelled the annual pass to Aspen and bought that Prius!

    What about "feed your servants 5 times a week instead of 7"?

    Yes, I'll have to remember to take my children out of the boarding school. Just like all of the other normal parents have to do. Gotta watch every penny nowadays, you know.

    Maybe I've seen Fight Club too many times or read too much Zero Hedge over the past few years, but I recognize most of those tips as classic anti-consumerist ideas that you have to either embrace in their totality or not at all. You can't shun consumerism piecemeal - it requires a total change in perspective and practice.
