Men buy like dogs
Women buy like women and PREFER choices

“Just Ask a Woman” about how women buy

Tweet cha lata’ sistah!

Update: The owner of the has accused me of plagiarism. As EVERYONE should be able to see. There is a source with a back link at the bottom of that post that points to where the article came from.

Some folks are just rude. I found an interesting article and posted it here for you to enjoy, gave the author credit and they, in return, blatantly accuse me of stealing their work. Come On People!

Gimme a break.
