Casual Money… {Short Write}

Image Source

Money is very casual nowadays. It changes hands without causing any cacophony of questions or cadence in voices. Cabal politicians do it under the desk. Other people cadge our cash for just a visit to the cafeteria and we lend it to them on many occasions without realizing they might just be cheating us. We cannot always put a cairn to mark the boundaries for cadging and even our stern looks might not make them cease cajoling us till we loosen our stand and get them what they want. Certainly many of us would have met such a person sometime or the other. Our banks certainly can be certified as such. Those calls for promotion just can get on our nerve can’t they? So how much do we take before we lose control of our mind? And which way to do we lose control? Get wise and make them cease their cackling, or give up and keep casually contributing to their bottomless pits of money.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Leo!! Cash and me part ways so easily and Crackers 🙁 being Conned and Cheated is a Casual thing, for the Conman Coming at the door step:(

  2. Here, here! The thing is, this ‘casual money’ is everywhere. It’s in the freebies we’re given to promote products and the ads placed on blogs…. But I would love to be better,stronger people. Our world so needs it!

  3. Just reading your post and the words “forty dollars cash back came from the TV. The smartest decision we EVER made was to limit credit cards to two and pay off month by month. In today’s economy it has been a great blessing.

    • That is a good way to save indeed, Chris J 🙂 And here, no credit cards. All debit only 🙂 So if you have it, you can spend it wisely. 😉
