    that's me.. and i hate it.

    the internet and all these games and shit just add to it.
    too tired to go out and play sports, so i'll play video games.
    too tired to go interact w/ people, so i come here.
    too tired to go looking for a girl, so i just hit the porno sites.
    at least i have weekends :what:

    all i do is work to.

    i wake up, goto work, eat lunch, work some more, come home, get on the computer and talk to people on aim, 12oz, and check email and look at porn, then repeat.

    and i buy way to much shit, from movies, to other fancy things i dont absolutely need but are nice things to have.

    I think it's a simple thing to beat.

    Before you buy ANYTHING.... wait untill your next paycheck.
    If you still want it then, then it's cool to buy because you had
    time to consider if you actually need/want it or if you got tricked.

    The 'impulse purchase' is the biggest flaw with consumerism.

    Oh sure I NEED to get something I just learned out a second ago.
    How could I ever live without something I didnt know existed untill now?

    haha i find it funny that victor ward is reading this thread for some reason...






    yea i over the whole impulse part of buying..i can thank growing up on welfare up till i was 14 for that... the thing that gets me is all the products that are the same with different labels to them..



    take windex for instance.. did you know that oxiclean and windex are the same damn thing ..only in different bottles and color dyes....hell i never knew till i worked at a factory making that shit.

    I'm just a super tight fisted jew who hates spending his money. I'll see something, ogle it for a while, find the very lowest price on the planet, then decide I'd rather not spend the cash in the first place.

    And my parents raised me on adbusters. That helps put things in perspective.

    Being a consumers sucks ass, spending money that I need to get back and forth from school makes everything suck even worse.... I go out intending on buying one thing and end up spending more than I can.... Then the bills ass up and I get kicked in the ass...
