So readers, let me tell you why I’m posting this. It’s not like the usual bad photo/ragging on horrendous things I see, I know,… (I have plenty to come). This posting is more like a learning tool. This photo stands for something I’m against: CHEAP ASS PEOPLE! Recently, I saw a late 20 something year old guy looking at a Penguin short sleeve button down. He looked at the price tag, and I heard him say LOUDLY, “$69 for a shirt, and it doesn’t even have FULL SLEEVES?”… ….. …… (SIIIGH) … …. Readers, you have no idea how much disgust, grossness, embarrassment, and hatred I felt at that moment. No one needs to know your either a) broke like the rest of the world, b) a cheap ass, c) f**** loud and rude d) have no class, or e) ALL OF THE ABOVE.
So here’s the story behind this pic: This keychain was the first thing I bought from a Gucci store, and I was 18. I drove down to San Francisco, went in, looked around at that (magical place), and saw this. I said to myself, “I want THAT!” It was something small, in my teenage budget, something I’d use everyday, and a good start for a young guy like myself to start building a relationship with Gucci. Seeing as it was $75.00, I thought, “HELL YEAH!, What a steal! I mean, that cheap for something GUCCI??” I left that store happier than a pig in s***!!
However, when I got home, my mom and dad were NOT too happy. Who in their right mind spends $75 on a keychain??? Yes, I was 18, so yes, I could spend my money on what I wanted. But they thought it was a frivolous and unnecessary item to own.
WELL, HERE IT IS. AND STILL IN PERFECT CONDITION.
11 YEARS LATER!!!!
And the best part is, I still use it everyday. So, since I’m not a mathematical genius, bear with me: $75, divided by 11 years = $6.80 a year.
HMM. I THINK ITS DEF WORTH THE “INVESTMENT”, seeing as those $15 “I went to Disneyland!”, and $10 “Sunny Florida!” you bought every vacation seem to disappear or break after 5 months.
So people: Don’t skimp on the little things in life, and DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT PRICES!!! IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD IT, YOU’RE IN THE WRONG PLACE: SO SHUT THE F*** UP!!!!
