If we cannot candidly exchange information, what the fuck are we doing here?
Sorry was that vulgar, too? As a sidenote: in my experience, people who chastize others for vulgarity tend to be the most boorish of sorts and rarely understand what it really means to be vulgar.
Is that really what you have managed to take away from all this?

Really? I think a person's interior design choices can say quite a lot. I don't know if those choices would ever make me think more or less highly of a person but they certainly can be quite revealing as to tastes and interests.
I know total fucking morons with nice places.
Yes, well, this applies to a lot of things. Total fucking moronitude is no respecter of class or persons.

Maybe not. But I don't think he suffers foos gladly, either.

While I still think it is slightly tacky to brag about how much you paid for them, I can see how provenance might be something you would want to consider.
