When Alfred realized his dream of owning a red convertible, he became very stingy and possessive about anyone touching or using his precious car.
He even demanded that anyone admiring it should wear cotton gloves before laying a hand on its glossy surface.
Cynthia, his girlfriend got so fed up with his concern for his car, more than her, that she refused to set foot in it. He was shunned by his friends for the same reason.
The result of this over-obsessive attitude was that he became a loner who spent most of his time alone with his car.
