Riches are relative

Why is it I am so hesitant about spending a grand on a new tv? Every week at work I use $100K equipment, and go through at least $1k of consumables while handling plates of wafers that are each worth upwards of $1k. Every week I process probably around $10k worth of material, and I am worried about spending under $2k on a tv. In my time working in this field I have probably broken more than $100k of materials and equipment, and I've been luckier than most people. Money is a lot easier to spend when it's not your own...
