enworld piece - I thought they forgot about me. color tonight

Skanky guy climbing into his hi-po 5 series BMW spotted at El Segundo SBUX. I'm probably just as guilty of this as my subject here (though I don't drive a BMW), but gawd I hope not. I can't help but find it distasteful when I see it. What exactly is it--a weird dissonance, no? Two clashing postures--is it just the bad taste that I object to, or the apparent hypocrisy? Is it hypocritical to dress in a deliberately scruffy manner while driving an expensive German sedan? I'm cranky in my old age. SoCal is about having it all.
