It has recently become a bad habit of mine to ‘want’ to buy sweets and stuff whenever I walk into a general store. The sad part is I normally give into the temptation with the excuse of; ‘Well, I do have this ‘random’ R10 in my wallet… I’m not going to use for anything else, so I might just buy me some jellytots.’ Oh what a shameful thing to confess this is… Or is it shameful? I surely don’t think so when I’m in the pay row, and surely the okes behind me don’t think so either. Perhaps the only one to think so there and then is Mr. Bum staring through the window from outside, wondering why I don’t buy food with my money, even if it be for myself.
Many of us ‘middle-class’ people tend to think its normal, or we ‘deserve’ to get a treat every now and again. But the reality is, we don’t need it, Its bad for us and there is many other things money could much rather be spent on. oh how many times have i seen people complaining of debt buying take-aways and soda when they are ‘rushed’, being rushed is just their excuse but it still doesn’t say they could’t have made some sandwiches earlier and munch on them in their ‘rushness’.
Ok enough with the trolling from my side and out with my last fact. I heard from a video that it would take 20 billion US dollars to supply basic water, food and healthcare to the whole world. It turns out thats what the American population spends on Ice-Cream in 1 year. So in my final and most humble opinion, we can fix a lot of things by fasting ice-cream for a year, and using that money to buy Mr. Bum a bread. end.
ps: I feel like I’m sprinting when I read this… and you?
