Sectarian theories of consumption

We were in an Annandale cafe yesterday next to a tiresome trio in who spent their entire time complaining about their relationship troubles. All that was of note was their strangely anachronistic sectarian notions of thrift.

"I'm from a Presbyterian background, and it's not that we're scabby...but we practice self denial. But he's from a catholic background, every week gets his paycheque and wants to spend it all at once...I think catholics like to splurge".

Lucky he wasn't accused of being a drunkard.
