The New Financial Reality

August 22nd, 2009 at 11:05 am

I just had to post a quickie this morning. The new financial reality is.... that A girl I work with is getting married next month, and mentioned this morning that she and the fiancee had their engagement party at MCDONALDS! She proudly confided that everyone paid for their own meal, and it was cheap enough all of their friends could come. I didn't know whether to laugh, or feel sorry for her. She seems perfectly happy with the whole deal, so I will go with the chuckles, and a disbelieving little shake of the head. I didn't ask her where the reception was going to be, but just think, they could go really high class, like maybe KFC! In the interest of fairness, I should mention that I eat at both of those establishments on a regular basis, and enjoy them more than I should, as my waistline and cholesterol numbers will attest.

    Brilliant ! More power to her I say !

    The aspect I really like about it is that it was cheap enough for ALL her friends to come... because that can put a lot of people with little cash off parties...

    I think it's pretty cool and a laugh !

    Perfect post title. Sounds like someone who is pro-actively avoiding debt by not kowtowing to expectations that lead to debt for those of us who are not rich. Nothing wrong with that in my book! Smile
