My beef with Discover Card

So last night I saw this commercial from Discover card.  And it made me mad and then it made me sad.  Check it out:

Ahhh . . . consumerism at it’s finest.  This is the crap that the media is feeding to our children.  We parents need to stand up and teach our children that life is not about “cool stuff”.  It’s not about how much you can spend but how much time can you spend serving others.  It’s a lesson we all need to learn actually. 

My hubby is doing a series on his blog about being selfish.  He’s had some really great posts over there the last few weeks.   Check it out HERE!

    OK so I just caught up with your blog after 2 weeks. You get to watch tv a lot after surgery, so I’ve had to suffer through this stupid ad multiple times and I HATE IT TOO!! When the lady says “and there’s nothing wrong with that” I just wanna say YES THERE IS!!
