You walk out the door of your local Blockbuster video, which happens to reside in a strip mall on the not-so-affluent side of town. As you leave, you look down the sidewalk and see a middle-aged man leaving the payday-loan place next door. He and his two school-age kids proceed to climb into a late model, blinged-out, black 'n' chrome Hummer H3.
What's the first thing that crosses your mind?
(This happened to me this past weekend. My first thoughts? Either the guy owns the place — though intuition tells me this isn't likely — or I just witnessed one of the most scalding examples of "appearance is king" in all my life.)
