Now, I'm not saying that I expect gifts from Gucci or Prada. I realize the economy is not doing that great. I even realize that we may be looking at a severely cut Defense budget and that our income comes directly from the Defense budget.
But I'll be damned if I think it makes any sense that I have to receive plastic shoes from Payless as a birthday gift.
My husband is crying about the increased taxes. He's crying about the Defense budget and how it impacts his line of work.
Excuse me? Ever heard of a paper route, Alex? Ever heard of mowing neighbor's lawns on weekends? Ever heard of Grand Theft Auto? I mean, come on.
I didn't cause the financial situation. Why should I have to suffer from it? I never gave out a shaky loan. I never did a hinky business deal in my life, (okay, there was that one time, but he had it coming). All I'm saying is stop moaning about finances and understand that I have some standards.
Cheap ass shoes hurt my feet. Cheap ass shoes wear out really fast. Cheap ass shoes make your feet smell like pickles (and not the good kind). I really don't mind a cotton skirt from good old JC Penneys or Sears and Robuck. I don't mind a cotton tee shirt from the Gap or Old Navy.
Just please realize that shoes and bags cannot be from Payless. That's all I'm saying.
