It Really Doesn’t Matter

1FA602C7-4F0C-4F64-BD02-238A13089AFD“Did you remember to get the tickets for the charity gala at the country club for the week after next like I told you to?” Diana asked her husband.

“Ugh, I find those galas to be sickening,” Ronald replied. “I hate those ostentatious affairs with all of those pretentious phonies trying to outdo one another with their disingenuous shows of generosity. All they care about are the tax deductions.”

“You are so goddam lazy and selfish,” Diana said. “You know that I enjoy these charity events. And they raise a lot of money for worthy causes. I’m asking you to do this one thing for me and all you can do is turn it into a conflict. What is your problem, Ronald?”

“Fine,” Ronald said. “I’ll buy the damn tickets. It really doesn’t matter to you what I think anyway, does it, Diana?”

    Lucky for Ronald, there won’t be any charity event in near future.

    Not sure why you would want to go to a dance with someone who obviously doesn’t want to be there.

    Helping charities is one thing, stuffy people & places, no thanks.

    The closest thing to a gala I ever went to was a couple of Christmas parties with my ex-husbands work. If he wasn’t a supervisor and “had to” attend I would have rather stayed home then listen to all the brown nosing going on.
