While shopping at a local store yesterday, a cashier took our twenty dollar bills and made a comment about how crisp and new they were.
Not surprisingly, my Beloved answered by saying, “Yes, and this will be the norm as along as the government continues to print them out without any backing.”
To our surprise her reply was, “Keep them coming, as long as I get some,” suggesting that people ~her~ deserve something for nothing.
We were incredulous at her logic, which in reality is illogic.
Our final response brought up a little history lesson for her, explaining Germany's economy after WWI when literally a wheel barrow full of money would buy only one loaf of bread.
Perhaps this little bit of truth will eventually sink in to her young mind because….
Her last response was eye rolling.
I don't know if it bothers you, but it sure bothers me.
