The plastic bag.Once upon a time, this momma went to an airport with nothing but a wallet and a plastic bag. She went and asked where she could get a flight back to Edmonton from Vancity and this man looked at her and asked, "Do you have money?".
I have never felt so looked down upon in my life. But I don't blame him, It wasn't my brightest shining moment.
A little pissed at this man, I walked straight to the counter and swiped my credit card.
He had a point. I didn't have money. I was spending somebody else's money.
The plastic bag.
It is my biggest reminder to never go back to that time in my life where I am carelessly spending away money - what I've earned and what's not really mine -
for pleasures that I don't really need and won't really last.
Life is really that simple. A vacation, shopping spree and that kickass looking car all look pretty tempting. But it's not something I can afford right now. These things can wait.
For now, I'll stick with my plastic bag.
