Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “card.”
We have cards for practically every occasion, and some of them in my opinion are an absolute rip off.
In addition to the Happy Birthday, Anniversary, Christmas, Valentine’s Day (not that I got many) and Easter Cards, I didn’t object to Mother’s Day, or Father’s Day, but then they introduced Grandmother’s Day (another Mother) and Grandfather’s Day (another Dad), then Grandparents Day (anniversary of what, becoming a grandparent for the first time? Hell if I know).
Mustn’t forget the Thank You cards either. Right.
Fair enough, but the boffins and moneymakers decided to further personalise that to The Boss and Thank You Teacher cards, not that I would have sent one to any of mine at school. I do admit to sending a Thank You card from the dog to my Mum for looking after him.
Waiting to see the ‘Thank you for being an Asshole’ cards for bad drivers next.
