American Express Can Kiss My Ass
My knee jerk reaction was, “fuck you you fucking Germans.” Who the fuck are you to criticise someone for showing individuality. Should we all have the same card, one that conveys a group think image over a personality? The important thing is if the card is approved. If the man is not over his credit limit and can afford the lunch/dinner, then what is the problem? If the Germans like the Americans’ proposal then what difference it makes what image is on the card.
Then I thought about the woman paying for the lunch. I am assuming they are in business together so what difference does it makes who pays, it will/should be deducted from their small business expenses. It is not as if she corrected the situation in front of the Germans. The Germans had gone by the time she laid down her professional and acceptable gold American Express business card. Unless she did it in order to correct the poor stumbling and bumbling Peter Pan who elected to have a superhero on his business credit card. It would be in her best interest to correct him since they are partners in order to avoid a similar situation in the future. Or she could have told him straight up. Oh but that would have been attacking. The Truth is so uncivil. However, I could not help to think about how in the end he would get more credit and make more money than her anyway. It is the way things go after all.
But I still kept going back to that image on his card. I am so sick of the demand for group think, group acceptance, group inclusion. A person can belong and still have individuality. I just don’t get why so many “enlighten” people are against individuality. A person can be part of the whole and still be an individual part. Why is there such a demand to paint the world beige? Why is beige so fucking safe? Wait until it is time to renew my major credit card (will not be American Express), I am so going to pick yellow rubber ducks, Cat Woman, or Harry Potter.
