Whichever imbecile came up with the phrase: women don’t know what they want, was in serious financial crisis. Women know exactly what they want, and that is lots and lots of money! Sadly the majority are not willing to work for it. So they resort to shady deals like dating old men, old enough to be their great-great grand fathers and feel no shame about it.
Seems like SA's very own Paris Hilton (Ms Mbau) set the bar by becoming a professional in the trade, who would ever forget the highlight of her gold digging career... snatching a married man right under his wife's unsuspecting nose (poor woman) and it was clear to everyone who cared to analyse the situation that, it was the R80 million, that attracted her to the unsightly man, who was probably never a looker even in his teen years. As if that was not enough she went as far as stealing Primrose's husband, whom I suspect Primrose herself must have snatched from an elderly white woman.
So who can blame other women for wanting to be millionnaires without even lifting a finger. Love can take a back sit, and morals... wait, what morals? Thanks to post-modernism-morals, values and principles no longer have room. Everything has a price tag and love as you may have seen for yourself has become a commodity.
It is no secret that by the time a woman gets into a relationship, the brother had already been sized and weighed to see if he has the qualities of being Mr Right. Sadly these days a man is no longer sized by his intelligence, integrity and spirituality. Instead he is judged by the size of his wallet, the car he drives and the clothes he wears.
During my three month stint as a waitress I witnessed how quickly women fell in "love" at the sight of a man with a fat wallet and the lengths they would go to procure their attention regardless of his marital status.
The man of course would then pursue the lady not because he is irrevocably in love with her, solely because he sees a cheap lay.
I’ve seen sisters come into restaurants, ask for a glass of water then proceed to the smoking area where they would light a cigarette and wait for a potential candidate to offer them a drink, the "relationship" would stem from there – that is if she is lucky enough to be called after that night.
Once I saw a married man take off his wedding band as he walked into the restaurant, I use to work in. Anyway, I went to introduce myself and offered him the menu. He placed his order, then asked me to refill the drink of the "gorgeous" lady who sat at the bar drinking water.
I asked her what she would like to have – complements of the gentle frog sitting a couple of seats away from her. Her response was "Exactly what I’m having, Vodka on the rocks, thanks."
What Vodka?! I wanted to ask, but decided against it. I didn’t want to embarrass her after all Mr Money Banks was only a hearing distance away. Suddenly it made sense why she insisted I use the short glass instead of the regular one.
"Vodka shot coming right up," I said, trying my best not to burst into peals of laughter. Needless to say the gentle frog and the Vodka lady left together hand-in-hand at the end of the night.
In a world where money is everything people find themselves in sticky situations doing things they otherwise wouldn’t do had it not been for money.
Fellow waitresses also became wilful victims to these frogs who dangled money before their eyes like it was candy. These frogs were regular customers and were always served by the same waitresses. The young ladies, of cause were always paid a little extra for their "services", like being taken to shopping sprees every other month, or having their nails done, and received gifts on a regular basis – of course, this came at a price.
So the imbecile who uttered the words: women don’t know what they want was right. Women are caught up between money and love. They want a man that will love them at the same time have a fat bank balance.
Unfortunately the brothers that meet the desired standards always turn out to be nothing but frivolous, chauvinistic idiots that don’t know the first thing about treating a woman right.
