The question is, why wouldn't Gleb be more modest, and not buy himself things a little worse, but ten times cheaper? It's simple.

If Vasya had got himself a notebook and started writing down all his income and expenses there, the hairs on his ass would have started to move with horror. Vasya would have seen that eating in a restaurant is not a measly thousand at a time, as he thought, but fifty thousand a month, six hundred thousand a year.
