Is It Fun Yet 2011?

Posted on Jun 13, 2011

As we head towards another Summer, the reality of our economic situation pops up in different but telling ways. Do you notice that it’s hard to get a break these days? Remember the good old days before the economy started going down the tubes that all the prices of everything has gone up? Also it’s hard to find those generous extras from most restaurants…don’t you hate it when you go to a restaurant that you dine from time to time and find that the portions of food are skimpier but you’re paying the same price as before? It’s hard to go to that endangered species called a record store to find that hard-to-get cd. Now you almost always have to go on-line to either order the cd with the jewel case or you download the recording but you have to hassle to get the cover art! Such is life in 2011 where having a full time job with benefits is the sexy status symbol. If you don’t believe me, ask one of your friends who are laid off or looking for work.
