There are many nights I’m up late at night watching TV, and over the years, the commercials have really changed. Nowadays, one of the things I see a lot of are these ads for ladies who are just barely of age…..barely legal, promoting chat/phone “encounters” for money.
Do I get upset at these ads? No…because it’s just an ad – like anything else. Is it my place to judge the ladies in the ads? No…because these ladies choose to do them. I guess people’s views of such ads depend on things such as desire, age, and other things. In 30 seconds, the ad will be over, and my program will be back on. Is it worth raising my blood pressure over? No….it’s an ad – nothing more. Do I think these ladies could do something else with their lives? I guess it’s natural to jump to judgment on things like this, for we are creatures of habit even though it’s not our place to judge what they do.
Do I have a choice when these ads come on? Of course I do – I usually either tune it out until it’s over or I change the channel. Why am I writing about something so trivial? Well, I enjoy writing, so I think of random things like this to write about just to share thoughts and experiences. Most people probably wouldn’t bother, although I’m sure there are people who do get bent out of shape and rant about it or call someone to complain…..they do. Again……we’re creatures of habit. It’s what we do.
My program’s back on, the thoughts dissipate, and life goes on. Just another night.
