Re: VPH Big Deal April 2020?

Actually, in these economic times, if you can afford to spend money you should. We need to boost the economy, not further the decline.

        Buying any thing - at any given time - is a personal decision.  No one should concern themselves about someone else's buying practice!

I have seen the same comments from you on multiple threads. I don't concern myself with what people spend their money on. Why do you?


 


 

I am fearful of economic collpase @mom2four0418 .

@Reever,  you went past judging and jumped all the way to actually questioning and attempting to shame OP.

You have no right to try to dissuade someone from purchasing anything whether they can afford it or not.  You have no right to assume someone is in a shaky financial situation or could be in the future.

 

You have no right to project your fears and anxiety onto others especially in a way that most assuredly would take them aback, belittle and perhaps even embarrass. Your choice of words and phrasing frequently tends to do just that.

My sincere apology if I offended the original poster. That was not my intent. My message was guided toward those of us who are scared now to open our wallets because we dont know how bad this could get.  There was talk on a news program I watch of Marshall Law.  The health crisis is a painful reminder that life is very tenuous.

@Reever,  perhaps you should address your apology directly to the OP.

Re: VPH Big Deal April 2020?

@Reever  Well I, for one, appreciate the reminder that we have to be careful how we spend our money in these uncertain times.

 

I have never purchased any VPH items.  I have been tempted a few times.  But honestly, it is just more "stuff" and I am trying to get rid of "stuff" these days.  Afrer cleaning out the homes of two sets of parents, more than once, I remember of the pain of doing so, and waste of money, of all of that "stuff" whenever I think about buying more "stuff".  Of course, my clothes and jewelry do not fall into the "stuff" category, LOL.

Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else. Margaret Mead

Please accept my sincere apology if I offended you @TRAVELER . perhaps I am watching too much news and not enough "feel good TV",  Switched to Beauty IQ to get rid of all the negative news reporting going on. Even Lester Holt appeared blue tonight.

Valerie's Big Deal is the Shutter Lamp - H213526.  Comes in choice of colors - price is $42.90.

 

I love it, but it comes with a 60W bulb - wish it was brighter.
