We Don’t Live in Your Time Any More

We don’t live in “your time” any more or “your day.” I so wish I could say those words to some people who come by the store at my mall gig. Most older people come by and say things like, “When I was your age we used to be able to get a whole cart full of groceries for the same price you’re charging for ice cream/cookies.” Or “What are you trying to do? Kill us off? We’re not exactly rich you know!” I told one potential customer, “Well, I’m not exactly well-off either.” Another potential customer said to me, “Tell me, you wouldn’t exactly buy one of these cones for all your grandchildren at that price now would you?” I couldn’t come up with an answer right away, so he said; “I didn’t think so!”

Older people seem to think lower prices and higher quality is something that can go hand in hand. Unfortunately, I know it doesn’t work that way. If you want something of high quality you have to pay the higher price. I’ve learned that when I started working on my car regularly and doing maintenance work as a whole. If you want high level work, you have to pay for it; I also learned that if things are cheap/inexpensive then they’re most likely poor or low quality. It’s just the way the world works nowadays unfortunately.

Anyway, sorry for the vent. That’s all I have to say tonight; I’ll write more another time and hopefully I’ll have something more positive to say. Thanks for reading/listening!

Love and prayers, as always! ❤

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 35 years young!
