You guys, I've got something I've got to get off my chest.
I HATE house parties.
You know those "parties" where you get together and someone is shilling the latest and greatest overpriced kitchen gadget/bag/jewlery/....personal massager..../candle/beauty product while the hostess looks on with eager dollar sign eyes?
I HATE them. The pressure to buy is just too great for me.
I think it's because I suffer from TNS, or Too Nice Syndrome. I can't say no - I get an invite, and while I want to scream (or at least polietely state) that I can't/don't want to go, I don't.
And then I go. And I listed to the host droan on and on about this product will make my life all puppies and rainbows and OMG if I love it and spend $50 I'll get a free ice cube tray and OMG if I just spend $35 more I might as well sell the stuff myself because you get so much stuff free!
And I buy stuff. And I regret it.
Now, if it's not bad enough having to buy this stuff from a friend of a friend of a friend, now I've got a coworker selling some stuff - and somehow she convinced our boss to allow her to have one of these parties at work. The stuff she's selling isn't cheap, either (most items are in thte $75-$100 range).
Ugh. So how do I say no?
