this week's quote
(although the original is in English, it is too good to pass up)
we buy things we don't need, with money we don't have, to impress people we don't like

translated to Yiddish
מיר קויפן זאַכן וואָס מיר דאַרפן נישט, מיט געלט וואָס מיר האָבּן נישט, צו מאַכן אַן אײַנדרוק אויף מענטשן וואָס מיר האָבּן נישט ליבּ

mir koyfn zakhn vos mir darfn nit mit gelt vos mir hobn nit tsu makhn an ayndruk af mentshn vos mir hobn nit lib

translated to Hebrew

אנחנו קונים דברים שלא צריכים, עם כסף שאין לנו, לעשות רושם על אנשים שאנחנו לא אוהבים
