Today’s photo shows an older stencil that can still be seen on some walls in downtown Bucharest. It reads “Happiness in monthly installments”. My interpretation is that it refers to the consumerist society that we live in, and how the only things that seem to make us happy in our modern society is to buy more stuff – usually on credit, because we always buy more than we can afford.

  1. I wonder what the going rate is for happiness. Do we get a refund if we end up sad?

  2. Bad habits aren’t compulsory, but the sense of the stencil is quite right. In Italian it would be ‘Felicità a rate’.

  3. nice post. thanks.
