...people ask how much you paid for things! My mom ALWAYS asks how much this or that cost, what our tax return amounted to, how much I spent on a gift, etc. My cousin's husband walked into our house, looked around and asked how much we pay for it. Literally two minutes ago I was asked how much my wedding cost from an old friend. Mind you, she demanded to be a bridesmaid and when I picked other girls, didn't even bother showing up! She also just became engaged this past weekend. Do you think it's rude when people ask how much?
