Happy Love Day

in Rant, Spending

Yes, today is the day when money is spent in the pursuit of Love (or its by-products). Money will flow in the name of Love Day, cementing a relationship or simply out of duty and fear of ending up in the dog house if you don’t fork out some hard-earned cash on some gifts that will soon be thrown on the Love Day trash heap.

Love Day
An Apropos Sentiment

Do I sound crusty and bah humbug’ish on the topic of Love Day? What was your first guess?

It’s February, you have barely received all the bills from your orgy of spending at Christmas, yet spending hundreds of dollars on more gifts is not wrong in your mind? It could be that I am simply not a romantic and such, but I suspect that blowing more cash now is not the answer.

Some great ideas for Valentine’s Day?

  • Put a $250 dinner on your already bulging credit card (i.e. you are already carrying a balance from Christmas on it).
  • Buy nice diamond earrings for that special someone, by getting a pay-day loan, that way you both have a gift that will last a long time.
  • Spend $120 on a bouquet of roses, that will be wilted and dead within a week, but the bill will remind you of just how much you showed your love.

Nothing says I Love You more than debt™ (you will be seeing that as the catch phrase for a major credit card next year about this time). The bigger the debt, the more love you are showing.

    “…orgy of spending…”

    That was good.

    Nothing says I love you like someone vacuuming your car in the middle of a Canadian winter. Free or pretty cheap if you use the gas station pay vacs.

      Now that is something useful, even cheaper if you use your own vacuum!
