France has a four-day work week. Unfortunately, in most countries materialistic claptrap is valued more than quality of life, and so we slave away in order to clutter our lives with more pointless shit. C'est la vie.
Amen to that. People use their money to buy so much useless crap. Especially parents. I have the *cough* "privilege" of celebrating christmas every year with my older sister and her family. The things they buy their children..... So much expensive stuff, and their kids are not even grateful. They just rips open present after present. Parents seem to think they need to buy their kids new stuff all the time, oh he/she needs that new phone or Lacoste polo shirt, I say f*ck that! When they earn money of their own they can spend it on things they don't really need, but while they don't earn anything they shouldn't live in luxuary.
Showering your kids with stuff is not how you prepare them for adulthood.
