I think this was my favourite episode of Sex And The City. We've all had those horrid moments when supposed friends disregard our own priorities. Now if I could only make my point as elegantly as Carrie.
Just because Carrie is single and doesn’t want kids doesn’t mean she hasn’t got a life her money is her money she has the right to spend her money on what she wants to no one has the right to tell anyone what to do with there money x
I think the house owner kept them, because if it was me, I would go all the way to find out who stole in my house to never have them back, and because I am responsible to pay for them if they are not found.
Hey I also am a single woman who makes her own money and spend it the way ı like. And ı would definetly pay for my friend's shoes if they were stolen in my place but 485 dollars for a pair of shoes?? Really?? Am ı the only one here who finds it absolutely unnecessary and a little bit irresponsible? It always kinda bugs me how this show praises consumption society.
+Stefan Makara what i'm saying has nothing to do with that woman's (i dunno her name lol) horrible behaviour. I do not approve her. And like i've said before, if it was me, i would pay even if it costs 1000 dolars. That's not the point i'm trying to make.
I just say spending so much money on a pair of shoes is ridiculous İMO. İt is not about how much money you make or how much you can afford. They are just shoes.
Well, you gotta understand that these people are rich. Like, Carrie is bad at finances so she in future plots has no savings, but she STILL makes enough money a month to not be in a giant fucking debt although she eats out every night, wears designer clothing, buys shoes like a maniac and lives in an extravagant apartment.
This woman here is from the same social circles, same status if not richer. Hell, look at her place!
For such an amount of money coming in monthy, nearly 500$ aren't much- what IS much is that Carrie has a truck full of them, but that is another story. I myself am willing to pay up to a 100 for a good pair of boots because they last a life time. 500$, for an adult person that rich... isn't too much.
I myself would never buy them that expensive even if I had the cash. But the woman here was really just being a total bitch. She can absolutely afford that, she just doesn't want to. And to say that Carrie has no real life because she has expensive shoes is moronic.
I felt for Carrie in this point...I'm single and I've been treated in a similar way by married women.It was like I didn't accomplish something special in life cause I didn't got married or have children as they did. We have different responsibilities and that doesn't mean that singles are carefree nor that we haven't succeeded in our lives just because our course of life and its evolution are not the same as theirs!!!!
$485 +tax for shoes and we have people starving, thirsty, homeless, dying of cancer and bad diseases and sickness people can’t afford insulin and medications that they have to have to keep them alive and poor baby’s starving and with cancer and sickness. And people are spending $485 on shoes that are made of the same materials and Shit. Purses cloths etc. that is made of the same things. I’m not being mean or jealous but my god what is wrong with people I understand they work for what they have. But I couldn’t imagine walking by homeless people or people who are poor and starving to death wearing $500 shoes. I’m ashamed to even be in the same place as some people I wish I had a lot of money I would open a place for homeless and help people get medications and help them get their teeth fixed and or pulled and get them dentures. It makes me so sad. And you can hate on me all you want I have literally spent my last dollar on family and people even family and people who have treated me horrible and still do!! I just can’t even think about it bc it makes me want to cry my eyes out. Knowing that some people have so much money that they don’t even know what to spend it on and waste it like those who burn money to get attention when they could help people. Why?
parents like that are the reason so many mums presumably hate other mums. so many people either get past the age of 25,and think they're the shit, and so many people become parents and suddenly think they're unstoppable.
I love the shopkeeper role her to keep her kids in line lol. and her pretending like she didn't use to wear them herself
Forcing guests to remove their shoes is disrespectful. Not everyone is comfy going barefoot in public. And the argument that "we just CAN'T have you tracking in germs around the BABY" is silly. The human feet have more sweat glands in their soles than the entire body combined. The inside of shoes contain bacteria. Know what they love to eat? Human sweat. Know what happens when living organisms are well fed? They multiply. There are more bacteria inside of shoes worn more than a few times then there are on a public restroom floor. So maybe a pair of designer shoes wont, but all of your mom friends who wear the same pair of running shoes every day... or even your perfect husband who wears the same pair of dress shoes every day...yeah. they are tracking far more bacteria into your house with their bare feet than with their shoes. And if you have a giant house party and make everyone take off their shoes... loads of sweat eating bacteria aaallll over your floors. What if one of your guests needs to use the bathroom. Barefoot. Eeew. If you want to keep a no shoes house for your day to day lives to keep from tracking in dirt, salt and rain, fine. But to make your guests go barefoot is rude and if you still insist and another guest steals them, I don't care if you are a mommy. Your guest had their belongings stolen because of your rule. Pay up.
I thought both women were wrong. This is funny i am from India and in many house parties (especially religious ones , and most house parties have something religious to do with it) you need to keep the shoes OUTSIDE and the host will definitely not pay if they are stolen ! But who wears their most expensive shoes to a house party ?! i mean to a restaurant i understand. In a house in any case one leaves her shoe at least in the entryway, who walks inside the house in shoes, and in a house with kids ??. Not going into the details of how Carrie afforded them, it was unfair f the host to question her life-choice. Though i complete agree i would not cough up a huge some of money because someone else's mistake
Carrie has the expendable cash to fulfill her guilty pleasures. The mom sounds a bit bitter to me for throwing shade at Carrie. Maybe she was deflecting her frustration in no longer having the ability to indulge in her own former shopping habits. Or perhaps she isn't bitter and is only to trying to justify not having to repay her the full amount knowing it was her fault they went missing in the first place. People shouldn't shame one another for their life choices or how they choose to spend their own money.
Love SATC, and was on Carrie's side on this matter...not all married women who are mothers feel that single women or men have all the time in the world, have an easy life...or they should get married and have children...OR are after my husband...I have lots of single friends and love them for the people that they are and love seeing their adventures that they post online...my children are adults now, so I have lots of free time, and get invited to a lot of gatherings with my single friends.
They made such an important point though that if you don't choose to get married or have kids, you're spending thousands on other people's lifestyle choices and they'll never repay the favour. I always go extra on my friend's birthdays because they've doted on my daughter but don't want to get married or have children themselves, so I balance it out there.
Honestly I really respect that ideology! I wish I didn't always feel so obligated to not only buy gifts but not buy cheap. And some events really add up now if you allow yourself to get involved. Weddings for example, if you're close to the bride, you're looking at an outfit, a gift, costs of getting to the venue and possibly staying somewhere, not to mention the crazy expensive hen dos that seem to be all the craze. If only more of us felt more confident to say no haha!
As a single person without any children I don't buy presents unless I want to. Nobody is forcing me to go to baby showers, weddings, wedding showers etc. I do it because I want to and I don't expect anything in return. If I go to parties I am also drinking their booze, eating their food, etc.
That happen to me a lot !!! At my ex job because I live in Miami and a lot Latinos has kids pretty young and I remember in one ocasión a girl said she couldn’t go to work next day extra hours and I said I would be busy too, and she said but is because I have a daughter you don’t and I was what ? I didn’t wanted say anything because I knew if I open my mouth is going to be bad! For her and every women there has kids so yes ! I didn’t wanted more enemies lol
See I'm with the mom on this one.a dog can piss on your shoe and it is your choice to have overpriced shoes so you shouldn't be surprised if they get ruined.an her shoes are expensive because of the brand not quality.it is her choice that she fills the void in her life with shoes and material belongings.This just proves how materialistic she really is.I would never ask a mom of 2 to buy me new shoes.they have it hard enough..and essentially you are taking money from the kids..it could go to their college found
I’ve been to houses where I had to take off my shoes before entering. It was either some bitchy woman with control issues or some bitchy queen with control issues. The only difference was that one had a dick.
This episode inspired an entire body of Dance Work called ReBirth. This was a surreal baby shower celebrating the many other beautiful and creative things women “birth” in this life. I celebrate a woman’s right to choose a single and childless life... it’s concious, it’s woke, it’s responsible... a woman is not just some role, “wife” or “mother,” she is a creative being who can create whatever she wants in this life. The self righteousness of women who choose the latter, needs to stop.
So she offered to pay but then she didn;t feel like spending that much so she started to insolt this women has no idea what the real world is when you offer well suck it up and pay or say I'm sorry I don't have that much, who asked you for any opinion
If this happened in India, the host would buy her new shoes twice the price of the original, and the guest would awkwardly try to say, "no.... you don't have to."
Of course in case of a dowry the story would be different.
confession on the internet: I was young when this came out. My first tv show to influence fashion in my opinion was the Nanny, and then of course, Gossip Girl. Never gave this much thought but after so many years and finally watching bits here and there, I get why this show is talked about so much...Gonna start watching it now!
Carrie missed an opportunity. She should have read that woman the riot act. Using her life like a human shield to compensate for the fact that she had no intention of paying or a pair of shoes. If she'd lost the shoes at Carrie's apartment, she'd be bitching!
Anything of mine that gets stolen in YOUR apartment is yours for the payin. The friend was being incredibly tacky. I would die of shame if my friend loses something expensive of hers in my house and i would pay back in a second + go fbi on the motherfucker that stole something
Honestly if she had spoken to Miranda or Samantha that way they wouldn’t have hesitated to put her in her place. Carrie shouldn’t have kept her mouth shut and should have reminded her there and then about the amount of money she has spend on her friends engagement, wedding, baby shower, baby celebration etc doubt the uppity bitch would have complained about price when she heard just how much money people spend on gifts for HER!
That really pissed me off when she said “sure before i had a real life”. Really girl? Because the only way to having a real life is marriage and babies and owning a home etc.🙄🙄🙄
I’m a grown adult and I’m single, never married and no children and I have a real productive life. Carrie should of smacked that woman for saying that.
