There is something that’s been confusing and troubling me for quite a bit now. Perhaps someone is smarter or has more clarity of thought and will be able to explain this to me…
It’s like this. I’ve been listening, for ages now, to tons of people singing the blues of financial woe. They or their spouse have been laid off. Or their salaries have been cut. Whatever. Just a bunch of different hardship shaped tears.
So, this is my question. The thing that has me completely stumped.
If things are really as bad as you are crying and flailing your arms around about. Why are the ubiquitous you masses sending your kids to THE most expensive camps? Joining expensive gyms? Buying expensive clothes and electronics? Outdoing each other with the various celebrations?
Spending money that you say is going, going, gone?
I would think that it was time to tighten the belt, no? Start saving a few dollars a for a rainy day.
Or are you thinking that you are living through the stormy season right now and a money tree is going to suddenly grow from all this rain?
I’m just curious. Because I have to tell you, it’s really annoying.
