The Business of Break Ups
Recently, a billboard for a Chicago-based law firm displayed a pro-divorce message that read "Life's Short. Get a Divorce." People were so upset by the message, not just the scantily clad woman and man on the sign, that a city alderman found a loophole to have the sign taken down.
It's disturbing that there are people in this world that actually have no souls. Seriously. If you want to generate more income for your company and your wallet by intentionally targeting people's marriages, you have no soul. After that sign was taken down, one of the lawyers said that they felt "violated." Really? What your sign implies, Corri Fetman and Kelly Garland, is that life is too short to believe in such concepts as love, commitment, faithfulness, friendship, and pretty much everything that sums up a good marriage. You're juxtaposing the phrase "life's short," a phrase that usually precedes a carefree activity like "skip class" or "eat another brownie," with marriage, a HUGE commitment where people make vows that should be upheld for life. You're manipulative and I find your cry for sympathy contemptible and pathetic. You feel violated? Well, forgive me if I don't really give a shit.
