Operation Watch This: Bankrupt By Beanies

You never do know what life is like for other people. Even the expression to “walk a mile in someone’s shoes” doesn’t come close to describing the difficulty of genuine, meaningful empathy. Because what happens when the mile is done? You get back into your own shoes? Well, right, you can’t just walk around in someone else’s shoes all day, they need those shoes! They’ve got places to be! Families to disappoint! Fortunes to squander! Beanie Babies to hoard! All I’m saying is forget it, Jakes, the whole world is Beanie Baby Town. (Via LaughingSquid.)
