I have a friend who is the king of impulse buying. We were at the gas station the other day and while I was there just to pick up a pack of smokes, he spent ten dollars on chips, dip, and drinks. I told him that when we got back to my house that I could make him something to eat, that way he didn't have to spend so much money on junk. His reply, "Well we are not at your house yet and I want something to eat now." Note, my house was like two minutes away. I shot back well I guess that is the mind set in the "Instant Gratification Generation". So, how much are you a part of the "Instant Gratification Generation"? That is him being weird in the pic.

LOL I know that so well from myself. I'm just like your friend, I don't really have a filter. If I want something I want it now, and if I can buy it where I stand I will :-) I've actually done it with a TV, a computer, dvd players, digital cameras and stuff like that, but do it a lot with food as well. It's a very expensive habit :-D

Yeah I understand. I have actually tried to reason with him but it is no use. I have seen him drop 150 dollars before and he now has very little to show for it. But I guess he can afford it as he doesn't have a family to look after. Kinda makes me wish for the old days before my son was born. But I still wouldn't trade him for the world
