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! ❤
