What Really Grinds My Gears – “The Dress”

This may be kind of old, but it still grinds my gears when I see it… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgk2MRQKPF4

That is the Chase Sapphire rewards commercial where the husband explains all of the amazing trips that he could take his wife on with their rewards points, but at the end she has already used the points for her own selfish wants – she buys herself a dress.

Let me start off by saying that I am in no way sexist, there’s just something about selfish people who drives me crazy. Basically this commercial is showing that women are in charge of the relationship. She can be selfish and the husband can’t do anything about it because, well, he over-chicked. If the roles were switched here, do you know what would happen? the wife would find any way possible to trade back the season tickets the husband received so that she could get something she wants too. No, that’s not fair. Be equal; get a vacation and not a dress.
