How much did it cost you?

If you do one thing, and that's all it takes is one thing, people want to know, "well how much did it cost you?" I can see if you want to know how much something cost so that you can say whether you want it or for example, you are at the fair and want a corn dog and you may say, "girl I want a corn dog, how much does it cost?" I would then proceed to let you know how much it cost. When I came back from the cruise, one of my co-workers saw the pictures we had taken, and the question was, "so how much did that set you back?" Now you know I didn't answer because my thing is this, what difference does it matter how much it cost? If it wasn't coming out of their pockets, why would they care? And then what makes him think I was set back? You know, people are always deciphering on how to get in your business.

When I told this co-worker that I wasn't going to discuss prices, he then felt he needed to have the last word and say, "well it must have cost a pretty penny then." So what if it did, so what if it didn't. If hubby and I decide that we gonna gonna go and buy five couches and just stick them in the middle of the floor, that's God's money that he gave us that we have wasted. Not the neighbors, not the co-workers. We might look like a bunch of fools with five couches in the middle of the floor, but I'm sure if we did do that, we are the ones who have to pay for it.

I think people ask those questions regarding how much stuff is just to see if they can see how much money you banking on or not. They want to sit around and say, "I know she can't afford that, I know where she work." What does that have to do with anything? I could be working at Burger King and still drive around in a Mercedes that's paid for. Who is to say? But it does irk me when people are constantly asking me how much stuff is and then say, "can you afford that?" I don't mind on certain occasions that it's asked not out of a need to be nosey but out of a need because they want to get something for somebody or for themselves, but just to be asking because they dipping and dapping, and they be drinking kool-aid and don't even know the flavor, then that's when I am irked. I say stop trying to keep up with my bank account and sweep around your own door.

Lovingly yours,
