Chutzpah. This is a word that is used often by myself because sometimes I just can’t believe what people do. I mean really! I thought it would be fun to share our Chutzpah moments. The only rules are no names of stores, people, or events. You may also not use inappropriate language. Leave a comment listing your favorite Chutzpah moment! I mean laughter is the best medicine.
Or khutspe. Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption.
In English, chutzpah often connotes courage or confidence, but among Yiddish speakers, it is not a compliment. For more Yiddish Words
Chutzpah: It raining money
Yet it is creating a drought in my small surplus of funds. I have to say I am enraged to the point that I wrote a letter to my water company about the proposed rate increase. I believe that things cost money. I also know that rate increases are part of life. What I am having a hard time understanding is how I am using less water and instead of paying $90 a month our current bill is $168. Our water bill five years ago was $50 a month. That means our rate has tripled and more in five years. I wish my husband’s salary would do the same. The best part is I am paying this rate increased based on a “proposed” amount that has not yet been voted on. The increase is because the infrastructure needs to be replaced. I was wondering if I will get to own a certain pipe in the infrastructure since $78 overage a month multiplied by 12 equates to $936.00 a year. That is a big increase from the $1080 we were paying last year.
I wonder will they return my money with interest if the increase is not passed? I can’t believe that companies are allowed to do this. If you could please, leave your wallet at the door because we intend to charge for Madame Deals in the year 2020. We think we may charge $500 for every minute you read something on our site. If we change our mind on the amount we will let you know. Well maybe. Yes, I am kidding about charging for Madame Deals.
I am outraged that a company can charge based on a proposed amount. Did they ever think about the cost associated with returning the money they collected I bet that amount could buy a pipe or ten? I wonder is there a way to get the new pipes the companies needs without draining its users?
