I wonder if becoming a Buppie means that it’s okay to “blow” a little money on the finer things and not sweat the details anymore. Have we forgotten those days when we didn’t clean our plates and our parents would remind us that children were starving in Africa? Do you remember this when you’re at a restaurant and you haven’t finished your plate, but you’re full? Instead of taking a doggy bag, or finishing our plate, we just settle the bill and move on. I think it’s something wrong with that.
What about how we don’t mind wasting money on drinks? We have convinced ourselves that we need our space in the club. But do we remember that bottle of Grey Goose costs $30 from the liquor store? No, we still bought it for $250. Because we wanted our space. Remember when we used to make our liquor last? I think that’s all gone now. I’d recommend that every buppie sort their bank account by transaction type and see how much they spend on alcohol a month. Enlightening.
As the spring and summer near, we know we about to throw out those winter clothes and bring up the spring clothes. Problem is, a lot of that stuff we don’t even want anymore. But we don’t want to give it up. We just let it sit and collect dust. I know myself I got some clothes I’m not going to wear again unless I have to paint something or go play in mud. Those clothes can be donated instead of taking up closet space, so I can feel like I have such a large wardrobe.
I’m just saying, do buppies have a tendency to waste?
