If there’s one thing I know you love, it’s money. Unfortunately, I don’t have any of that to give away today, but what I can give you is the next best thing: money shades! I even splurged on the $100 bill ones too – nothing but the best for my people.
To get them, you must answer a riddle… Okay, well not a riddle, but certainly a conundrum!
Let’s say one day you’re approached by a magical money fairy. We’ll call him Warren Smuffett. One day, you wake up and Smuffett is sitting next to your bed staring
creepingly endearingly at you. He tells you he has an awesome gift to bestow upon you: one year’s worth of salary, tax-free!
You jump out of bed and start hugging and kissing him all over, but he warns you that you must first make a decision, and it won’t be an easy one. He lays out the two options as follows:
- Option #1: You can take all the money scot-free and do as you please (save it, invest, pay off all your debt!), but in return your closest friend/loved one in a financial hardship will be notified the second you receive it, and how you answered. You’re not allowed to give any of it to ’em.
- Option #2: Instead of taking it for yourself, you can choose to give it all to that same loved one currently struggling. However, they will never know where it came from, and most especially that it came from you. (Anytime you try to hint, they automatically slug you in the face. True fact!)
Mr. Smuffett then leans over and asks you to whisper your decision to him as if he were Santa Claus. And in a weird way, he kinda is. Only with a warped sense of humor ;)
Which do you choose?
Do you take the money for yourself, or give it all away anonymously? Answer below in the comments (truthfully!), and I’ll award two of you a pair of these nifty glasses. One to rock in shame as you’re counting your briefcase full of cash (did I tell you it was a briefcase full of cash? It is!), and another to hide your tears of joy/possible regret as you watch your loved one receiving the money.
Give it to us real, baby! Life’s too short to fool ourselves!
UPDATE: The two winners are Dkong who would give it to a close friend of his struggling hard (love it!), as well as Sundeep who would take the money, but then start a sustainable endowment so it continues to keep paying it forward. Was fun to read everyone’s responses though :)
