Hubs told me to not write this post.
He says it offers NOTHING to my readers and that it’s just an opportunity for me to bitch.
I say, YAY FOR ME! I get to bitch and YOU get to read it. Also, we could change the world. At least a little bit.
I have an idea for a non-profit. I don’t want to run it or start it or anything that takes any effort at all. I’m kinda hoping one of you will take this idea and fucking RUN with it.
I had a moment last week. My boss, who is perhaps one of the most clueless people on the planet, asked my opinion on something as I was leaving for the day last Thursday afternoon.
First, I would like to point out that I have not had a raise in FOUR motherfucking years.
He asked my opinion on a $1200.00 purse he was considering purchasing for his wife for her birthday.
I will be first to agree that you will have to pay somewhat of a premium for quality. But that premium comes WAY THE FUCK below $1200.00. And beyond that? How about you DON’T ask someone who has been struggling for a while to make ends meet about an obscenely priced purse.
I have some unpaid medical bills. I’m starting to get concerned that if I don’t pay them that they will reinsert my diseased gall bladder, or perhaps reline my uterus. $1200.00 would pay ONE of them off.
Also, I just bought a much needed car. With said medical bills, legal issues from my addict son and all the other things that comprise life for a person who hasn’t had a fucking raise in FOUR fucking years…well…my interest rate is…high. But I need a car. It’s difficult for somone who has to pay interest in the double digits to discuss the ins and outs of a $1200.00 purse.
Without further ado, here is my proposal for a Non-profit.
We’ll target ALL humans who feel compelled to pay obscene amounts for handbags.
If you feel like spending $500.00 or more for a purse, we will do our BEST to convince you to donate that money to someone who could actually put that fucking money to good use.
You could pay a medical bill for someone who needs it.
You could buy books for a year for a struggling college student.
You could get mortgage payments caught up for someone who has been out of work.
Or..how about this? You could buy A SHIT TON OF PURSES in all shapes and sizes…enough to last you a life time.
What should we name this non-profit?
Will one of you administer it?
And could I be the first recipient?
Oh, also? The boss mentioned that other than the wildly overpriced purse that features the letters ‘V’ and ‘L’ (and how is that? We’re gonna spend a shit ton of money on a bag that basically ADVERTISES the bag?) he JUST bought her a purse a few months ago that cost even more.
And yet, I haven’t stabbed him even once…
