Douche Camera Block

I’m pretty principled when it comes to not buying things that people I don’t like buy.  But I may have to change that.
Ryan: How’s the camera working out?
Me: Pretty well.  I’m shooting about 100-200 pictures a week.  I’m thinking of getting a macro lens.
Ryan: Yeah, *guy I can’t stand* just got one.
Me: Damn it!  First he makes me stop reading New Scientist and now this.  He’s really is a jerk.

I really want that macro lens though.  I heard he got a telephoto lens too but that was 3rd hand so I think I’m safe.  I may have to abandon photography to avoid more of these heartbreaking losses.
