When I see a new consultant with a $700 Tumi bag I think trying way too hard

These are the kind of people you want to stay away from. Unhappy with their own life and cant appreciate/celebrate people's successes. If the analyst in the room has the best suit and the best bag one should appreciate the fact that he knows the importance of carrying himself well at an early age. This is a relationship business and some people need to be coached on how to carry themselves well. If someone is doing that well early in his tenure that is a tick mark he will need eventually and should be complemented for. He is investing in the right things upfront instead of wasting his money on something useless.

All of the logical arguments laid out will not change the insecure, outdated, madmen level beliefs of the OP. It's ok, jerks like him won't be around too much longer. And I am not a millennial, just someone who recognizes generational differences happen ALL THE TIME. You can see the differences as a natural progression and live your life or you can be a sad angry person who uses generational arguments to justify your own misery. I choose to enjoy life.

@OP where does replying to your own thread fit in the paradigm of "trying too hard"?

Yeah, exactly. Not trying to be obnoxious, but I got my first Tumi suitcase in 7th grade because we traveled a lot and my dad goes goo goo ga ga over nice luggage and bought five of the same suitcase at the Tumi outlet (he's also a little OCD). It lasted me close to 19 years of lots of use and I eventually traded in three of those suitcases to get the newest $700 Alpha one totally for free.

Quality over quantity... More of an investment if you ask me. When I first started I WISH I knew about tumi bags! Good job newbie, no rookie there!

I have a $1800 TUMI carry on + purse set and I'm glad I made the investment. It definitely took me thirty minutes of debating with myself in the store to make the purchase. A great investment.

I just wish someone would love me and adopt me, from a work perspective. I float from team to team and get good reviews, but no one seems to want to really take me under their wing. I’m sad and alone in a great big firm 😞
