How much are you earning?

"Hey, how much are you earning ah??"

Have you ever been asked such questions? How did you react?

I have been asked similar questions either directly or indirectly before.. and I have never given them any straight answer, well except if I was in a job interview.

I don't understand why some people are so obsessed with how much others are earning? Is it to know their market rate, or is it just to feel more superior when knowing they are earning higher than everyone else? If that is the case, maybe that's why I don't want to ask such questions fearing I will end up feeling down instead.

I will console myself that higher salary usually comes with higher stress. I know.... sour grape ;-p
