    Ballin on credit....spendin what you don't have.

    As I was in the other thread talkin about cars, would you ball on credit? take out a range rover on lease programme even though you know you ain't gonna finish paying for it? buy clothes keep the tag on and return it the next day just to look fresh? Run over your credit limit just to stay up to d times?
    do you believe in spending what you don't have?
    what drives people to do that?

    Many People, do all of de above questions...not jus' a few.



    What drives people to do that?


    Because it's Accepted, and it allows dem to stay in a Appeal to others.

    You see people even do it with Events/Fetes/Carnivals...

    Anyways, people will go to all kinds lengths to draw in SO' or Friends'.

    "The Fake it, til u Make it" ideology has long existed. You see it at work, people who don't know sh!t pretend they are on top their business. Even on here People faking it, sad part is when they forget their story they been selling. But as I said, people who fake it are looking acceptance or don't want to be alienated. They just have to/want to fit in. Men will fake it untill they get some pu$$y, Women will fake it until they use out all a Man offers. Etc Etc. As, far as the trend u r seeing in TnT...seems that they just living/adopting the American way of life.

    Trinidadians have always been extremely materialistic I'd go so far as to say maybe more so than Americans or maybe it's because it's such a classist society and appearances are more important/ingrained in the everyday order of things than they are here. So it makes sense that when the same ways of getting into debt that exist here became common and ready available there that Trinis would run w/ it

    but that's what people respect, people that are real, simple and honest about their situation, circumstance etc etc get no respect....and that's because other's people's expectations are so rigid, that they make it difficult for people to be themselves

    i say it all the time, trinidadians are the most fake and deceptive people i know...they front too much and that's why i don't care for them....they feel they gotta keep it "classy"...but they are not classy, they are just pretending...that's why i rarely fukk with them
    you ALL AGREE with my opinion, which is why NONE of you ever EFFECTIVELY DISPUTE IT

    you ONLY have faith in the WOMEN'S ability to ELEVATE which is why you only FOCUS ON WOMEN...you ALL have long given up on Black men

    you just don't have the BALLS to OVERTLY AGREE....rather just do it INDIRECTLY

    weak men only can deal with weaker women

    in the presence of strength you diminish...

    I agree...credit never goes where it is due when it comes to this...

    i say it all the time, trinidadians are the most fake and deceptive people i know...they front too much and that's why i don't care for them....they feel they gotta keep it "classy"...but they are not classy, they are just pretending...that's why i rarely fukk with them

    I'm not mad at u....

    But comparing Trinis' to Jamaicans, the are both plagued by the same things...it's just the degrees/variation are different. Like there are SNOBBY' Jamaicans, who are well to do... or semi well to do. But there are probably equally, SNOBBY Trinis'...But they are not well to do. If u get what I'm saying.

    Nikki, I am trini, i live here and to be honest the level of deceptiveness annoys me. I know alot of people but I really cah take on even a quarter of them to be my friend nah....im one of those ppl that at the exterior of the in crowd, i could be there if i want, but I have better shit to do with the money i make than fighting down a set of fake over materialistic b!tches who really don't give a rats ass bout me when the day come.

    but the level of materiality trinis have decided to measure up to saddens me
