…One who carelessly spends beyond their financial means; shopaholic to the extreme.
For instance, the car fan who needs something brand new
That car itch every two or three years, or just some flimsy excuse…
Oh, it needs a repair? Time for a new car
Car got into an accident (but it’s fixable), time for a new car
Sometimes, it’s just give the ‘old’ one to a family member, buy himself a new car
Sounds cool, sounds neat
But in reality, it’s monetary defeat
SIXTEEN shiny vehicles since the 1970’s to present
Buick’s, Pontiac’s, Acura, Infinity, Lexus
Yet this new car fan is complaining when property tax time comes around.
This is a middle class income person by the way…
Instance number two
Buy on sale, buy on clearance
…Buy it because it’s on sale or clearance
That’s sound logic, right?
There is a problem when toilet paper, batches of a dozen each,
are stacked nearly five foot tall in the basement
Three stacks near the stairs, three around the corner
It’s a surplus kind of place, though for a small family of five.
An overflow of oranges contained in full sized paper grocery bags
Too many kiwi, too many limes
Too many boxed and canned goods that don’t get eaten in time
They were tucked away in cellar storage
And forgotten about (it’s the layer of dust)
…partly because the household cook and grocery shopper
are not one and the same
Continuously buying meat to the point that barely fit
the full size meat freezer in another part of the house
The kids have offered to do the shopping
because they’ve seen what needs to be brought in
…but the grocery shopper says NO.
Grocery shopper says often “it was on sale; I saved money.”
reality check isn’t happening
even though there’s been arguing and complaining,
dot to dots just not connecting,
…but the plastic has smoke from being used that much.
