BOOM. It's Valentine's Day, and you know what that means...
- Oh, Ronald! That's so romantic! But... I'm still getting jewelry... right?
It's Valentine's Day guys! And you know what that means, right? Nope, you don't. Here's why, in my latest humor column, appearing in BoomerConnections.com.
Here’s the problem with Valentine’s Day: it takes advantage of men.
Men don’t get a lot of sympathy from culture these days, understandably. There’s no doubt that we still have it pretty good. Just open a Fortune 500 annual report to the board of directors page or compare the lines for the men’s and women’s bathrooms at any large event and that becomes obvious.
So I’m not crying nobody a river about this, but still… Valentine’s Day is a massive commercial holiday built on the weakness of its target consumer: men.
