    Had a weird thing happen today.

    I was out with my mates in Twickenham, it's not a place I know too well so we found a small pub to hangout in.

    Though I'm a student I've got a really good part-time contract job in IT so I'm lucky in the fact cash isn't really an issue for me, so as I'm better off than my mates I had a creditcard at the bar for buying the rounds. Nothing too diffrent there and my mates LOVE it and I DON'T make a big issue of it.

    Now because some of the guys were getting a bit loud in a small-ish bar, I offered a few drinks to the people sitting around us as I thought it would stop them getting pissed off. Some took me up on the offer some didn't ... Thought nothing more of it, however once we were leaving 3 guys decided to kick off calling me a flash git etc etc saying that by offering people in the bar a dink as an appology I was rubbing the fact I had cash in their faces!

    My mates and I thought it was a pile of crap and said so ... This resulted in things kicking off and the barstaff having to break things up!

    I couldn't belive it! I honestly didn't think I was doing anything to make people feel bad or was I? Or is Twickenham just a **** place to go out?

    If so, anyone know anywhere good to go?

    Just keep your head down, don't make eye contact with anyone, don't speak unless you're spoken to.

    Or just do what you want and don't worry too much.

    I live by the not worrying too much philosophy but this bugged me for some reason.

    I think it's because I hate being hung up about money, growing up my family had NONE but now things are good but I don't want my life to revolve around it. I just want to enjoy life and if money helps me and my mates or girlfriends\dates to do that, then why not!

    Would hate to think that I was rubbing it in peoples faces without realising.

    TBH this is the first time it's happened to me but it really made me wonder wtf was happening.

    And you're right, I do have to work hard at my job, they don't just throw money at you. I can't imagine how these guys thought I got my moeny ... All very odd!

    I've not changed but the extend of what I'm able to do has because of money.

    My mates will testify I'm the same person now as I was when I was 13 ...

    I do agree with you though money does change somepeople but that's normally people who don't have a life and need something like money to revolve things around ..

    Sorry man don't know the area so I'm not sure but I think it was called The Nelson. It was on the corner of a road opposite a roundabout ... Do you know it? It's supposed to be cool.
