On my way out of church yesterday, I saw a man turn onto Lime Kiln Road from Post Rd in a 2007 white Mercedez convertible. Immediately, I was thinking about the man’s status and how cool the car was. He was about 53 years old.
Why did I think that this man was ‘worth’ something? Then I thought, how would I consider this man if I saw him turning the corner in a beat up 1983 Toyota Corolla.
Same man in a different car? Or would that be a different man in a different car?
About five minutes later I saw a man driving a 2001 white Chrysler Sebring convertible. He was about 38 years old. This car is not close to the status of the first one.
How many options can you come up with as to why these men are in the status they are?
