I have drawn a conclusion. Salespeople are like little children. They don’t like to be told no. They will lie through their teeth, straight to your face, but they refuse to accept a no. And…when they are given a no, they will go behind your back, tell people that the answer is yes, and somehow, you wind up looking like you changed your mind, even though your initial answer was and always was, NO.
My sister and I are working together to meet some goals that we have set. We are holding one another accountable in our spending habits. I was doing well, until Christmas hit. And now…not so much. This week, I am taking control back on my spending. I want the money that God blesses me with to work for me, for His good. How does blindly spending money on coffee, clothing, etc help the children who are starving in the third world? How does it help the people whose lives were turned upside down in Kenya?
Today I found out that it would be less expensive for me to fly from Boston to LA than it is from Philly to Boston for my friend’s wedding. Her wedding is March 29. Hmmm…looks like I’m going to have to think quickly 🙂
