You're born with a ton of fucks to give. So you spend them like a kid with a credit card. You give a fuck about your friends, about your grades, about your fashion sense, about strangers opinions ..... you give away too many fucks about way too many things. You have so many. then, as you get older you have maybe ten fucks per month.... so you learn to budget them. You allocate fucks to your family and career, but there aren't enough fucks left to give the newest shit. So someone at work has something they need my help with that's outside my job title? I'll do my best to allocate some fucks, but this month is pretty tight.
Then you get even older, so you're down to one or two fucks a month.... and those fucks are damn precious. You give them to your family, your hobbies, your job... and that's kind of it. It's not your fault fucks expire too quickly. I would have liked to save my fucks when I was younger, but I can't.
Then you hit fuck insolvency. you're getting like one fuck a year and you have to make it last so you go without.... and even previously fuckworthy things you just can't give a fuck. some people run out quickly.... some people have a trust funds that plays out a decent amount even into old age..... but at some point the fuck faucet runs completely dry and you're out of fucks to give. Its just basic fuckanomics. -hh6
