This reminds me of an episode of Arrested Development where Job inherited his dad's expensive suit collection and made every point to remind the underlings about how expensive his suit is. "Me? Get my own coffee? Do you think someone in a $5,000 suit gets his own coffee?" I don't remember if this was one of the lines he used but it was to that effect. Because optometry school is 70% females, I get lots of compliments on my shoes from girls in front of other guys. And because I dress better than them, I get a disproportionate share of clothing compliments. So other guys will come to me and ask me about the cost of something (or a girl will ask), I just say "I don't remember how much I paid because it was in Euros off a European website and the exchange rate always fluctuates." But then I get the "well, what was it about? 200? 300?" I answer with "I don't remember because it was so long ago. I just try to obfuscate and evade as much as I can.
