I've noticed that Middle Class people do a lot of things and have a lot of things that don't make sense. I have always wondered about this. Now I think that I have come up with an answer. The things they do and own are actually status symbols for their class. I thought I should explore this topic a bit.
I can give a concrete example: I always wondered why people have Iphones. Only today did I realize that it's probably a status marker.

Instead owning the best that there is a status symbol, an accessory that you cannot do without, and has even outdone other popular accessories and gadgets.
Do you have any other examples? Can someone explain to me how this works?
