^ You can lie and say the dryer is out of stock due to xmas. Or, u can keep it real and say u don't want to enable ur aunt-in-law from being a treated like a doormat by the daughter-in-law.
luckily, the Bay didn't have stock when we went there and they said "the item is so hot, everytime it restocks, it's sold out". So I am leaving it at that for now. But after checking online, there are other places that sell. Although I am tight-lipped about this, I hope I don't have to help buying in the future, because I hate it, just hate it!

If she's worried no-one will look after her, the smarter thing would have been to keep her hand on her assets, rather than give it away :(

We have been trying to convince her that it (the daughter-in-law taking care of her) is not going to happen by the way it looks, but it has not been easy at all. Her son is on his wife's side, what a joke!

That's what I mean - she should have kept her assets. Old fashioned thinking I guess.

The same people who buy $5k watches when a swatch watch does the same damn thing... or peeps who buy $200k car for an 80km speed limit no different than a beige corolla. You get the drift.
A watch is a fashion statement. Sure, you can look good in a Walmart watch but a nice Roley looks better. Sometimes people like the car for what it is and not just as a status symbol. Not everyone driving a BMW is doing it just to show off.

That is at least a functional item.

Nordstrom was selling rocks in leather pouches for $85 USD. Seriously

Wow now that is stupido....

A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art? It's up to you, but this smooth Los Angeles-area stone—wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast backstitching—is sure to draw attention wherever it rests.
:facepalm:

Man, I'm actually having the urge to buy this. There's something so "rugged or alpha" about carrying a rock in an American leather wrap. I keep reminiscing old west when looking at this fine leather pouch.

Too bad it's sold out lol :(

That's funny. That said, I don't care. Some people have money and want to buy what they want. Compared to many countries, Canadians are very rich.
