'Fake it till you make it'

Fake it till you make it.
I can not stand this phrase at all, the idea of pretending to be something you aren't in order to receive some form of reward completely aggravates me. Unfortunately, this phrase seemed very fitting to various people around the island of Mykonos. 

Mykonos is known for a luxurious style, yet being surrounded by people who are accustomed to this luxury became slightly intimidating. A daily routine was to pick a sun bed in the corner of the beach, the furthest end away from the busy bars, yacths and staring eyes. I am honestly not one to pick at people if I feel judged, usually I would say their opinion is irrelevant, yet the environment was so overwhelming it was clear a whole lot of people thought they were above everyone else. 

Forgetting that matter, anyone who visits Mykonos needs to go to Blue Myth - Platis Galios beach on a Wednesday or Friday for Greek night! The restaurant had the tastiest food (highly recommend stuffed mushrooms) and the most welcoming staff, I finally felt comfortable. The judgement during the days at the beach was never reflected in the night life, it became a quiet tranquil place to be which was always good to look forward to. 

Although I hate to complain, there is one moment I won't forget...

A group of men playing beach volleyball, three in uniform three not. As they began to finish their game a small speed boat pulled up, firstly the three men not in uniform hopped onto the boat followed  by two of the men in uniform, whilst one man still on the beach. Casually watching on,  I assumed the man on the beach would finish up packing away the net and hop on the boat with the rest of them but instead a man insisted to leave and the boat drove away. Twenty minutes later it returned to pick up the man even though he had been done packing it away within seconds of the boat leaving.  I watched on thinking 'Was it really that hard to wait a few more minutes? How can someone be that so impatient and belittling?' 

Use your money how you wish, but you can only be in one room at a time, one car at a time wearing one top at a time. Money or power is no excuse for rudeness, people are all equal and nobody has a right to think differently.
