“Not Having a Discussion About What I’m Buying? Priceless.”

There’s a fascinating article in Sunday’s New York Times, “Money Doesn’t Talk.” The money quote:

Through her store, Pesca, Ms. Azizian has earned her financial independence, but to avoid the disapproval of her husband of 27 years, she adopts a low profile by using cash. “His tastes aren’t as expensive as mine, and he doesn’t understand the need to have so many pricey things,” Ms. Azizian, 50, said. “Even though I have my own income, paying for my shopping in cash is so much easier than having a discussion about what I’m buying.”

  1. Re the article in the NY Times: if the cash buyers were black, it would be assumed they were drug dealers. Since they are white, it’s assumed they are hiding something from their spouses.
