Apparently scissors are like some weird and foreign concept...

Girl #1: Oh my God, I have to stop spending money. I'm in so much debt.
Girl #2: You should do what I do. Put your credit cards in a bowl of water and freeze it. That way when you want to shop you have to wait like 6 hours for it to thaw out! Or you would have to stand over a sink and run hot water over it for a while.
Girl #1: Wow, that is like, genius!

Mine is hidden as well. Scissors are a little extreme, you might actually need the card someday.

Mine is hidden too, but I think I call it self control.

How about you just STOP SHOPPING AND SPENDING MONEY YOU DON'T HAVE!

If you aren't responsible enough to wait until you actually have money before you spend it, don't get a credit card - or get one with a $200 limit so you don't spend $500 on "boots with tassles" and "jackets with fuzzies"... buy food and shelter instead.

There's a new book out, published by the worlds foremost business scholars entitled "If you don't have the money, don't buy it." I think Western should provide a free copy to all its students....discounts to those of the Ugg persuasion.

I agree with 6:07, but unfortunately most of the Ugg wearers are rich, so money isn't really an issue for them...and wouldn't the ice de-magnetize the credit cards or something? Just a thought.

5:49...I'm sorry that your life is no fun. Enjoy your food and shelter though.

8:51... it's not that life is no fun, it's that the prospect of being sent to a DEBTOR'S PRISON is so much worse.

Or at least it used to be back in Dickens' day. Back before the bleeding-heart liberals stole the stately 'Liberal' monicker and turned it to their own nefarious ends.

Because we remember...

Back in the good old days, there were thriving top hat and monacle boutiques throughout the land. Among these enterprises, there were those who made a fine living primarily on the backs of those other men - the ones who ran the prisons filling with the ever growing pool of society's indigent.

"Into the depths with them, at least until they have once more squared their accounts as only penitence, hard labour and social sequester are able to deliver!"

But yeah, 5:49, enjoy your "fun" life. So long as you are spared the midnight visit of the 'Visa Vigalentes' I pray it will continue. Who cares about financing somebody else's ermine stole with the rewards of your unconstrained, greed-fuelled impulses.

Not that you have to. I'm just sayin'...

Oh I how I still the miss the debtor's prison.

how can you give a discount to those of the UGG persuasion if the books are already free?

10:41... That could have been answered by simply saying "Fun can be hand without maxing out a credit card on boots" or with a good ol' "Fuck you"... overkill, my friend... overkill...

I never understand people who run up huge amounts of debt on their credit cards - that's just stupid cause it only costs you more in the end in interest fees. It's about being responsible with your money... come on people!

But 11:45, it was amusing and creative overkill, and less openly offensive than a 'fuck you', and it was also fun that was had without spending money! Amazing, is it not?

And spending money...well, it's hard not to sometimes. Haven't we all come across that one thing we want, be it clothes, books, music, DVDs, posters, or booze, and thought "I really should NOT. I don't have the cash, I do NOT have the mon - awww, what the heck, it's just a few bucks anyways. I just won't get anything ELSE for a while..."

Stupid random trips to Masonville Mall. It oozes consumerism like an open sore oozes pus...

Yeah, I'd just call it responsiblity, and you know, not being the stereotypical materialistic Westerner. I used my credit card ONCE, for school books:) I don't think cds or posters are worth giving hard-earned money to those damn creditors.

No shit...there was no attempted theft.....sorry I didn't provide the citation.

10:56--you are right...my bad....but let's be honest Western isn't giving anything away for free, and I was just trying to make a gross generalization concerning the Ugg wearer/moron stereotype. Sheesh, get off my back

Western is most often stereotyped for their slutty and stupid girls, and their rich and cocky guys.
It looks like the stereotype is MOSTLY right.
Though, I would say that "judgemental, jealous and bitchy" would be FAR more spot-on.
Get over the fact that UGGS are worn by people with money. Get over the fact that you don't have a pair. Get over the fact that you can ONLY talk about the UGGS that cost $400 because you can't point out the Seven and Rock and Republic Jeans that wealthy people wear because you've never been able to have a pair yourself.
Take your heads out of your asses and take a fucking pill.

"because you've never been able to have a pair yourself."

or perhaps because.. we've never felt the need to pay so much for one?

i guess i can't speak for everyone, but i was under the impression that people made fun of uggs (and other 'trendy' and thus massively overpriced fads) because they're such a pointless, materialistic and unoriginal waste (of money, of dignity, of morals, of the damn material that it's made of).. not because of jealousy..?
