Sunday Speak: When Will You Pay Full Price?

Sunday Speak: When Will You Pay Full Price?

I got a Pandora bracelet for my birthday in November. From then until Christmas, I didn’t have any new beads on it. I got three Pandora beads for Christmas, and those were the only ones I had for a while.

I decided that I would fill my bracelet up with fake beads and swap them off when I got new ones. Made sense to me.

My work friend gave me a fake one that she had gotten for someone else, and I put it on my bracelet. After a few days, the silver coating started to fade. Then it rusted and turned a pink hue. But I had other pink beads [[pink on purpose]], so I figured it was okay.

I went into the Pandora store last week to look at beads, and the clerk looked at my rusted bead and asked if it was Pandora. I told her no, but the others were, and she said, “That’s ruining your outfit.”

I finally realized she — and everyone else — was right. And I had to take it off. No more fake beads for me. So, it’ll be a little [[okay, a LOT]] more expensive for me to fill up my Pandora bracelet now, but it’s gonna be worth it because now it won’t be ruining my outfit.

So, my Sunday Speak question is this: When will you pay full price? When will you not skimp?
