This is the sort of clock I have at my place at the moment. In my place of work and at home. Everyone likes things in an instant but alas my Samantha Stevens (Bewitched) nose lets me down and sometimes there is a wait for what you want.
Do you think the word 'waiting' is becoming a four-lettered word? It seems like we are becoming 'instant' consumers, that there is no such thing as 'delayed gratification'. Do you agree? If I leave my phone in the car I sometimes have numerous messages from Miss T with a 'where were you' sort of message as she wanted to borrow my nailpolish. I kind of like not being available every single minute but I get lots of flack for my beliefs, even from the Silver Fox!
I am trying to teach the Teenie/Tweenie to save for things, that they don't necessarily need something ... 'now'. Master T is a bit more disciplined than Miss T - money burns a hole in her pocket every time and then she gets buyer remorse to the max and wants her money back. The first time she got a store credit she was horrified - she wanted the money back!
Are we all turning into wanting thing 'now'. Credit card, interest-free payment plans... not sure
What do you think?
Ciao for now...
