Show that you are powerful and important
on April 11, 2011
I am a high level executive at a well-known American auto maker, where the past few years have been very difficult. Fortunately, the government was there to help us weather the storm caused by years of selling a cheap product for a ridiculously high price. When our sales plummeted, I was afraid that I would have to cut back on my extravagant lifestyle. I really didn't know how I would get by without my caviar, Dom Perignon, and of course my staff of 23 personal servants. At first the economy didn't really affect me. I just laid off employees and docked their pay to keep my income unaffected, but eventually I had to sell three of my five vacation homes and lay off most of my personal attendants. Things were really bleak. But then the President borrowed and printed a whole wad of money and gave it to us, because he knew how important it was to keep our company afloat. Some people didn't like that, and they called us "Government Motors". But they don't know how hard it is to get by without the basics in life, like a Rolls Royce with a valet, chauffeur, and a masseuse. Well, I couldn't afford all of that stuff, and my image as a successful, powerful, influential, and important businessman was in grave jeopardy. Then I found this magnificent watch. It exudes power and prestige. Some people balk at its price tag, but that was the attraction to me. People could look at that watch and know that I have accomplished great things in life. So when I got the check from Obama, I finished writing the pink slips for the excess factory workers and immediately went to buy this fine timepiece. Now people will know that I am a self-made man living the American dream. God bless capitalism!
