A few years back, I was having dinner at Nobu Next Door. Mind you, I’m not a fan of foo foo restaurants – I prefer a home-cooked meal or the ambience of a super cool retro diner with a waitress of a certain age chewing gum and calling you “honey. But since a friend wanted to go badly, I went.
So there I was at that over-rated Nobu Next Door and seated at a nearby table is an overweight obnoxious guy in his 40s (which seemed so old at the time since I was still in my 30s) and he was with two badly plastic faced aging models.
At the top of his lungs, he kept bragging about “MY HOME IN THE HAMPTONS!”
He must have referred to his “home in the Hamptons” at least six times during the course of his meal. (And mind you, I’ve been to the Hamptons too — no great shakes).
Anyone who has been to Nobu Next Door knows how tight the place is. When I got up to go to the bathroom, I accidentally knocked over my bottle of sake. The Hamptons guy stops bragging about his home in the Hamptons and says to me, “You are very entertaining.”
I looked him right in the eye and said, “Then you must have a very boring life!”
He didn’t know what to say.
I don’t get these guys, who want everyone to know how rich they are. They are the ones, that wind up having their houses broken into, since everyone knows they are loaded.
Ha-ha! Yeah, or I could have had him pick up my tab!! 🙂
Lmfao! I live 30 mins from the hamptons and I always thought it was a snobby area! Filled with spoiled and selfish people that shun and look down on to normal people…. My husband lived all over the Island and his mother begged the family to move there… She had high hopes for her family and low and behold they were shunned and looked down at @@… (Now I know why she was desperately always having the need to fit in or act like her yuck don’t stink!) anyways…
When I need to go to the Hamptons I am treated like “the cool Brooklyn city girl.” I have always held my head up and have been proud of where I am from. And to be honest? I think some Hamptonnites need a good kick in the butt once in a while… For the love of goddesses! They all live on an island so that is why they feel so sheltered it is true! Lol!!!!
People who flash their money are asking for trouble. Stringbean, who sang on the Grand Ole Opry like to flash his money and two guys were waiting for him and his wife, to come home from Grand Ole Opry and killed them both.
Wow, I never thought of it that way! Great point!
