I finally have a couple to share:
My everyday soft-shell Marmot jacket is probably close to 10 years old, and one of the pit zippers is falling apart. This means that the underside of the armpit will now be completely open unless I come up with some sort of fix. Or I could just get a new coat for $200, but shoot, the rest of the coat is in pretty good shape. I was talking with a coworker/superior about it, and she said she didn't even own clothing that is ten years old. I'm thinking really? Not even old jeans?
Same day, a few hours earlier, a couple of coworkers were talking about another coworker who will be retiring in a few weeks after 34 years at the company. (He's 60, so not ER, but not late either.). They noted how rare it is for someone to work at the same company for so long. Then they needled me because I've worked there over 16 years, and they said I could get to 34 also (that would have me also retiring at 60). I said, no, I'd be done before then. I was asked if I planned to win the lottery. I relied that I had hit the lottery 16 years ago when I started to get our company match: 9.5% plus up to 3% more on a 50% match of my 401k contributions. Conversation sort of ended there as the one guy is about 10 years older, and I imagine will be working until full retirement age in his late 60s.
I don't even count as mustachian compared to most of you folks, but compared to these people, all of whom are 6-figure earners, I must look like a complete cheapskate.
