Tis the season for shopping til you’re blue in the face (or until someone pepper sprays you!)… stockpiling your baskets and SUVs with stuff many of you really cannot afford , let alone even need… and, ultimately, stuffing away your Grinch-like feelings of greed and receipt-laden guilt. But who’s to blame for your frenzied, Black Friday addictive actions?
“Society drives people crazy with lust and calls it advertising.” – John Lahr, drama critic
Surely not the scheming stores and malevolent marketing execs… for YOU bought into the game again! YOU drove yourself to the store at 3AM! YOU are still trying to top last year’s gift giving. YOU still have your priorities out of whack. Yup, I said it.
Remember: too much will always be too much. And the goods ain’t so good if they only bring out the bad in us. ~ KD
