That was a good laugh

December 26th, 2017 at 04:27 pm

I bought my SO a Michael Kors watch ⌚️ from the outlet mall for Christmas. To purchase the Michael Kors box 📦 to put the watch in, would have been an additional $6. I opted not to.

Now he wants to know if his watch ⌚️ was bootleg because it's not in a normal MK box. I tell him, I wasn't spending $6 on a box.
His face >>>> 😳
My face >>>🤦🏾‍♀️

I'm on a budget, he's lucky of if got anything. Lol

He kept saying wow, I kept laughing. This was the first time in months that we actually laughed together. Felt good, just hope it's also a teachable moment for him.

    My mom kept asking for boxes at every store she bought a gift at. Finally she stopped asking and said to me sadly, "And I just got rid of all of the shirt boxes from last year."

    Guess the stores are on a budget, too!

    Cute story, though!

    Wise choice, skipping the box! Don't take this as judgement, as it is just observation of people I know in real life, but it seems those without money buy and put value in high end brand name products.

    CCF I totally agree. Just look at my side bar, that credit card debt has a lot to do with brands. The watch was actually one of the cheapest there, $69 plus tax. Much better than what I normally purchase, $150+. If there was a cheaper one that I liked, I would have purchased that. I'm just glad that I went to the outlet, had I been thinking I would have put his watch in one of my MK boxers. Lol

    I did ask him what would his rich friend do? The one who took us out to dinner and used a coupon, lol. He would have been smart with his money.

    CCF, you are exactly right!

    We ran into the same thing with boxes being in short supply a couple of years ago around here. I have been squirreling them away and this year I actually had more than we would need and could be picky and recycled those that were in sad shape.

    Hopefully SO did learn something from this, Amber. Right now I am carrying a high end purse. But I didn't buy it new. I bought it at a thrift store. It was like new. I enjoy having well made items, but I'm not going to go crazy on a name because I don't care whether people think I'm buying because of the name. I want quality.
