Word of the Day: Tasteful – Not

Keeping with the Christmas spirit which I’m having a hard time finding the last few years, I present these “tasteful” ads and pleas, and if you believe that one, I have a bridge. . .

My favorites are the ones starting out with, “you save $1600, $1500, etc, when you buy. . .” Or “starting at…”. If you save that much, how totally marked up is their profit? Jewelry is the worst, and I admit I dislike gaudy diamond rings, sorry if you disagree.

And then there’s the sneaky “up to” phrase with the asterisk….

And the email plea scams:



Egads! Where is the spirit in all of this useless unneeded stuff and scams? And who has this kind of money? I know, Trump.
