My Love/Hate relationships

Valentines day is a special day for some, hated by others. So in light of the recent holiday, I have several love/hate relationships, I've been noticing as of late, that I felt like sharing. Seemed appropriate.

My first love/hate relationship: target.

Who doesn’t love the patented buttered popcorn aroma as you enter this upper-class-wally world, of sorts. It’s a great store, who can argue. HOWEVER, it can be too great. I walk in with the intention of buying just batteries (or something) and I walk out fifty bucks later wondering what happened. I can’t help it. So I avoid Target whenever possible because I know what it does to me.

Bank of America. Oh BOA, you are everywhere. I love being on the other end of the country and still being able to access my money through an ATM without a fee. However, you’ve stolen money from me (I have evidence). And although you being everywhere is a convenience to me, I think it has gone to your head. You don’t care about the little people- and I am one of the little people. I’d like to take my business elsewhere on occasion, but you wouldn’t notice. Or miss me. So I won’t go through the trouble.

Stupid Laptop. You’ve been a thorn in my side since the day I bought you. That could be my fault since you were dropped. But a month ago, you crapped out on me. Lucky for you, I had a very generous friend donate his time to repair you. So you’re not being sold for parts just yet. P.S. I love you.

Hairspray= bad for the environment and nastys up my wedding ring. But you keep my hair in place and that’s really what matters in life.

Chocolate= keeps me comforted all year round. Maybe it's just the extra fat it supplies me. So that's no bueno. How dare you taste so irresistible.

Money= the root of all evil, so I hear. I couldn’t live without you. I would starve.

Internet= a great place to mingle with friends, get recipes, or diagnose myself. But there are creepies on there. And plenty of things the world could definitely live without. So although I love you, I hate you too.

Yeah I'm SO rich! haha. Actually, I bought that crap laptop 5 years ago with my dogwalking money. And I forgot another love/hate relationship I have... Exercise! I love it but it's painful and boring at the same time.
