My version today is "Am I an awful person?"
Let me digress. I give money to charity. I'm kind to old people and animals. I hold doors open for people behind me. I say please and thank you.
Catching reruns of "Deal or No Deal" is occasionally part of my agenda. GSN runs old episodes at noon.
Here is why I ask if I'm an awful person. If a contestant doesn't take a reasonable early offer, I root for them to knock out the $1 million dollar briefcase and the other high amounts. There is no law against making money in this country, but I detest greed. I enjoy watching those contestants lose, and go down hard.
I had a stock broker, now retired, many years ago. She always said "You will never be sorry if you take profits." My history was selling off early with a decent profit. I could have made more if I kept some stocks longer, but I was satisfied with a nice gain. I was a risk taker, but not an outrageous one. A little bit of something is better than a lot of nothing.
