Luxury or take the crazy pills?

by Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] on April 9, 2009

in Farts and Other Stuff,WTF?

I’m not sure why boredom laziness procrastination avoidance, but I was shopping on the Tiffany & Co website yesterday in the ‘Under $100’ section. Cause when you’re internet shopping, why not be reasonable?

I have been in the market lately for a business card holder for all those important meetings I attend where people say, “Can I get your card?” and “How can I get in touch with you?” or “I know you’ve told me 34 times before, but what’s the name of your business?”

So when I was internet window shopping, the Tiffany Blue patent leather business card case caught my attention. Not for its beauty, usefulness, conversation-startability (ie. “Is that from Tiffany?”), but for its price.

SIXTY-FIVE DOLLARS

For a business card holder.

I’m apparently NOT their key market demographic unless their key market demo is po’ ass, fat ass 30-something stay-at-home-moms who buy their fancy shoes on clearance. (If that’s true, I’ll take a sample to review for my upcoming review/everything blog. *call me*)

And then it struck me. I already HAVE a Tiffany Blue business card holder!

Recognize it? Anyone?

That’d be my YAZ birth control case. It comes free with my monthly dose of crazy pills that are supposed to keep the pimples away, but really only make me more of a crazy lady.

And they cost $67 dollars a month.

I’m thinking I ditch the crazy pills and just buy myself a Tiffany business card case.

I’d say ditch the yaz and go with Tiffany’s. Bo was a bc present. Tiffany’s has yet to produce surprise results

You are so funny. I love that you keep the biz cards in a Yaz case.

I’d get the Tiffany one though. Just for the hell of it.

you;d have to get a whole lotta business as a result of handing out those cards to make up for the cost of the holder! holy god, that’s insanely expensive man.

I’m still stuck on the fact that your birth control is $67/month?! Shit if mine were that expensive, I’d take the risk of pregnancy. Then okay, mine is $23/month. Okay, really I wouldn’t, but damnnnnnnnnnn.

I bet Target has a replica of that for like, 10 dollars 🙂
