WRONG! Money do can buy you Happiness…


Dear Admin,

So most at times we did hear folks all around say this old adage to us day-in, day-out and although it really sounds like the very truthful things or phrases heard it undoubtedly is very wrong. For various reasons i attribute this phrase to an original quote that goes ” Beauty lies within”. Truthfully, as i stayed naive for a very long time, i came to believe in it but now i would be like “Are you kidding me?”

I would keep this one very simple. Read head

These adages are seen by various groups(mostly religious) as being intellectual truths. I jokingly said to myself. That guy on the street whom i just gave a quarter doesn’t look so happy than I. Or is he? Maybe he is because he solicits money freely from others without rendering service “en contre partie”. And I was right! Who wouldn’t want to do nothing for something?

The generalization of the word happiness is somewhat misused in the phrase. On the other hand, beauty itself in this context is a sin qua non for deceiving all who agrees unrealistically. I know some good folks who chose their mates in order to preserve the relationship. By simple definition “beauty” here means:

if my mate ain’t beautiful enough other persons wouldn’t even ask him/her out thus I losing him/her in the near future.

This trick works very well and many have kept longer relationships. You ask truthful guys/men who cheat on their girlfriends/wives they would tell: ” i cheat because that other girl is hot” literally meaning, “they cheat because the mate stopped being beautiful”. The same goes for women who cheat on their mates. It’s all about appearance.

But read carefully as i explain to you why money do can buy you happiness.

Some call it luxury others call it vanity but i call it “a pure simple life”. Imagine you woke up early in the morning(you stayed overnight at a social friend’s place) and you also happen to have 40 billionth $ in your bank account. So you wake up hungry for breakfast and decide since its only less than an hour flight from Paris(you live in Paris,France) to Monaco you take a flight

with your friend(and or call more friends to come along)there. You arrive in Monaco bay and you buy yourselves the best heartwarming breakfast one could ever get.

Thereafter, you guys head back to Paris and live your normal day as everyone else. Now at six p.m , Chelsea is playing the UEFA so you guys charter another flight to London, take up a VIP seat since the economy seat is somewhat crowded(trying to forget that guy who puked all his booze on you the last time). After the match, you take the same swift plane to Morocco and you get yourself a taste of exotic Moroccan cuisine for dinner. Since it would be too late to return to Paris, you pass the night in Sofitel Hotel near the golden beach of Agadir with an exquisite sunset singing lullaby to you as you calmly fall asleep forgoing the sound of running water flashed from your upstairs neighbor.

You wake up early, charter another flight back to Paris to begin another normal day be it work, schooling or running around with your hands in the air. Don’t even think of judging me as I’ve not yet informed you what you might do on weekends.

That’s not all, those guys who attacked me last week by the roadside robbing me of my phone, fake swatch watch and 20$ did not seem happy getting “rich” off me. I can recall they really looked pissed i only had 20$ on me and thank the Most High they didn’t realize my watch was a fake.

Money can’t buy Happiness? Are you kidding me? Am right now thinking of going to visit my long lost found cousin in the United Kingdom but guess why i cant go.

The only way it can’t(Money can’t buy Happiness) is if you spend it alone. Whether you are Poor, Average or Wealthy. Share it!

Here’s an equation i found on facebook. I don’t really agree how about you?

Women

No ass + Nice face = Bad shape

Nice boobs + Nice shape = No face

Nice face + Good clads = Bad boobs

Good boobs + Nice clad = Dunderhead

Bad boobs + Bad clad = Loving

Nice face + Nice shape = Slut

MEN
6 pac + Handsome = Player

Bad shape + Stingy = Intelligent

Wise man + Humble = Poor cladding

Romantic + Caring = Broke

Understanding + Caring = Less romantic

Loaded + Loving = S.T.Ds.

Thanks for reading
