Money wasted on the non-essentials cannot mask gaps in the essentials

I saw this Asian girl at the mall today sitting together with her family opposite from where I was sitting at the food court. She must have been about seventeen or eighteen, and she looked like the sort who spends quite a bit on her looks, judging from her exquisitely-tinted hair, her manicured eyebrows, trendy clothes, and designer spectacles.

Then she started chewing on her lunch. What a shame. I wonder how one gets to that age without even once being told that the proper way to chew is to do so with a closed mouth.

Moral of the story: not even the finest designer brands can mask ill breeding.
