"Saving!"
« on: June 11, 2018, 05:45:17 PM »
This happened today.

LUNCH
Co-worker, eating a purchased meal, fills the rest of us in, play-by-play, on lengthy search and new apartment lease:
"We're going to save so much! We'll be saving $250 month at our new place!"

LEAVING WORK
Same co-worker, dashing out the door:
"Can't talk! [Chain store] has no limit on double coupons today!! We just bought a $2,000 tv for $500!"

UGH. Can't decide what is worse:

1) feigning polite half-listening to co-worker's "apartment win"
2) legit annoyance that people pay $2k for a stupidly large television, let alone $500

My neighbors are moving out of their apartment here at the complex to save $500 a month in an accessory apartment in her parents' home because they want to put the money aside for a house downpayment. Well, okay, except that they both just took a vacation in the last couple weeks--her to Mexico and him to Florida--and he just bought a new motorcycle. Hmmmm.
