Money Can't Buy What?!......Pssh!

    In no way is this meant to be facetious but the phrase "Money Can't Buy You Happiness" has to be one of Top 5 biggest lies of all time! {The rest of my list in no particular order: 1. I'm Not That Type Of Girl 2. That Was My Last Piece Of Gum 3. I Didn't Get Your Text 4. No That Dress Doesn't Make You Look Fat} I'm just saying, when was the last time you saw a person miserable because they had more money. *I'll Wait* Hell, I'll admit I'm still learning HOW to act when I get money. When I was a kid I used to get so annoyed when some adult would say "Don't Let That Money Burn a Whole In Your Pocket..." and of course in my head I'm thinking "How About You Stop Worrying Bout My Damn Money And Mind Your Business".....I never had the guts to say it though. I was not about to catch a b*tchslap to the face in front of my friends! Haha

    I've met a few wealthy people before, they were happy and mostly humble people. The type of people that didn't mind paying for your meals, letting you come around their exspensive belongings or even giving you a few dollars just because they can. I've never met an unhappy person with money. From my observations the money MUST make them happy because it's usually the people that don't have money that are mad all the time! Mad because someone won't give them a dollar. Mad because someone won't pay their way to an event they can't afford themselves. Mad because they still have a flip phone. Mad because no one likes their US. Polo Assn. gear or mad because someone sits in their living room even though it's WRAPPED in plastic.......I could go on and on but they're always grumpy about something. Money can't buy you happiness right? Wrong. Money buys our possessions, possessions make us happy, so indirectly money does make us happy. All of us! Whatever you desire money can buy; clothes, shoes, cars, jewlery, electronics, food, antiques, collectables, music (yes some people still pay for it), accessories and few goodies from the Adults Only section if you're feeling fresh & funky. *Hope I didn't miss anything* On the other hand, famous people...yeah, they have it bad! They're miserable like shit lol...they can't sleep, creep, buy, fly or scratch their butt without an audience. That shit sucks. But when people who are not famous get their paycheck or someone pays them some money owed to them....they are thee happiest people around...until they get home and realized they shouldn't have went shopping before paying their bills.

    As you can see from the lenthy 2nd paragraph someone saying "Money Can't Buy You Happiness" irritates me just as much as someone whispering to me with bad breath. There are so many examples, from watching television alone, that people that have money ARE happy. Instead of simply telling me that money can't buy me happiness, because that won't teach me the lesson I need to learn to properly manage my finanaces in the future. How about you teach me how to be responsible and mature with my money. I know I may never obtain the amount of money they have, take the trips they take or buy the things they buy.....but I can definitley be happy with the money I do have. "Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out" -John Wooden. If you teach me how to be responsible and mature with the money that's given to me or I earn....I guarentee I'll buy the things I want and take the trips I want to take.....all without worrying about how I'm going to pay my bills or put gas in my car in between paychecks. But...most parents/adults never think about that, they just want to tell you "Money Can't Buy You Happiness" right before they take the money from you that your Grandma/Grandpa gave to you for Christmas or all the money you earned from that weak ass summer job that you didn't even want to have! (Yeah...obviously I'm still bitter about that. Wouldn't you be?!)...........ok bye.

*Clear Throat* Greetings

    First off, "Stupider" is a word. I Googled it! You're more than welcome to check that for yourself but being that you've actually taken the time out to read this post I would hope you trust me...a little. Anyway, one of my biggest pet peeves that I'd like to discuss is the customary assumption that majority of women that I've come into contact with like to proclaim...that "all men are stupid." Besides that accusation hurting my feelings, I don't think it's entirely true. I mean why does it have to be ALL? When they say "all men are stupid" that's automatically including me and that's no bueno. And don't let that come out of their mouth when they first start talking because then I'm just waiting to interject and not listening to another word that's being said. Is it so hard to say "all the men that I've met are stupid?" Because that's what they really mean. Oh! And all hell breaks loose when a guy even uses the word "B*tch." So it's only fair for women to be a liiiiitle more specific if they want men to use less offensive pronouns. Am I right?! *Looks around for some support*  

   I'll admit that a lot of men are stupid when it comes to relationships with their significant other. [Insert infinite gripes, moans & complaints here] The strange thing is, out of the thousands of stories that I hear about a particular stupid guy, I've NEVER done something like that. I might have thought about it.....yeah I'm pretty sure I've thought about doing something belligerent once, wait that's not true I think about it all the time. *Hangs head in shame* But...I don't do stupid stuff simply because I know better and care about the consequences. Being the only boy and raised around a bunch of Eve's Descendants all my life I know what makes those creatures tick. I have pissed off a few back in my day but never intentionally done so. I've been the selfless type for as long as I can remember so my faults usually occurred when I was trying to please (not being nasty) too many people. I've learned my lesson quite a few times so that shit won't be happening anymore. Hmph!

   What were we talking about again....oh yeah men being stupid. False, men have proven to have the most creative and powerful minds in all our history to date. Besides intellect, there are Good Men. Some men think with the head on their shoulders. Some men know how to plan a proper date. Some men can cook and clean without an argument or physical altercation. Some men know that opening doors and walking on the side closest to the curb is part of being a gentleman. Some men want to find a woman and treat her like a Queen. But, because of society as a collective brainwashing with social media, bling, clubs, disregard for moral hazard and what we consider the standard or minimum of what we deserve by being spectators to the entertainment industry it's hard to find one. Our women are inconsistent as to what they want and our men are confused by who they should emulate because they can't catch up to the woman's a dog chasing its own tail, just goes around and around until it gets tired and gives up. The dog that usually stops chasing, straightens up and follows a path without going astray finds the right mate for them. Boy dog or bitch. Haha
