so I bought an audi a6, but it makes me feel weird into what my colleagues of other departments will think, like I'm earning way too much which I'm not, or have any kind of crazy ideas, besides I'm sort of young age. My dev department knows and I feel cool with that. The reason I want to know how I can handle it is because I think I need to use my office parking lots, and they will ofcourse notice.

    Why did you buy an Audi if you "like the low profile thing"? Jan 7 '20 at 14:09

    Err, what? Don't like the car, sell it. Do like it, keep it. Problem solved.

    I don't think anyone in your company will judge you for your car, at most you'll get a "nice car" comment from a few colleagues.

    @HerlandCid Handle it with care. Sounds like it was expensive. On a more serious note, don't make this a problem before it is one. Chances are it never will be.

    Dev I worked with drove a Mercedes convertible, because he once had a huge slot machine win while killing time after a job at a casino. It wasn't weird, but we did make him drive all the time when we went out for lunch. Jan 8 '20 at 14:00

This shouldn't be a problem and you shouldn't make it into one.

Carry on as normal. Drive to work, do your work, drive home from work. Say thank you to those that complement the car. If you're that worried about them judging you for having bought a more expensive vehicle, just add an 'I've been saving for a while and excited to finally get it!'. You don't need to justify what you've done to anyone at work.

  • In short terms to me it's like, to work in the fear of being judge by others by any reason. I appreciate all responses. Jan 7 '20 at 14:28
  • @HerlandCid Well that fear is going to be there no matter what, partly because we all think it, and partly because your personality places importance on it (too much). Tell that fear to shut up. Jan 9 '20 at 8:21
