How should I handle someone who insists on dropping price tags??
Someone in my life CONSTANTLY drops price tags! This has been going on for a few years (since I met her!). You know, remarks like, "The new Heating/Cooling system just cost me, $13,000." or "My new door was really expensive." "That awning cost $8,000." "I know where you can find X (something I'm looking for) but it is really expensive!" (She says this sort of thing a lot.)
I want to be friendly with this person but this habit is a huge turn-off to me. I have come to avoid her like the plague, but still must interact with her sometimes. I am cordial & friendly to her, but inside I feel so uncomfortable.
Chances are good that y'all have never met a person who does this to the extent that this woman does! I never have before! It's impossible to have even a brief conversation without money being brought up in some way, shape or form. I feel guilty for avoiding her. Otherwise, she has a lot of good qualities, but this worm really spoils the apple for me!
I know y'all usually talk about money saving tips here, but thought some of you could offer me advice about this. Thanks!
