You Too Can Prevent Unemployment

I was talking to my youngest sister, who is also looking for work, although in her case as part of her emergence from the life of a full-time mom of 3. She said everyone tells her, “We’re waiting.” That’s what I hear too. What we want to know is, waiting for what? Must be for someone, somewhere, to spend some money. So you, “Hey you out there! Reach into your purse. Take out your wallet. See that dollar? Yes, the old crinkly one? Give it to someone in exchange for a service or good. And if you can’t do it now, can you just let us know when you might plan to do it? So we can go lie in the sun until the world of money, goods, and services is ready to start turning those massive gears and combusting the combustibles? Thanks. Much appreciated.”

  1. I must admit I don’t understand the concept of those who are not spending because they don’t want to appear they’re ‘flaunting’ their wealth in these economic times. I feel that if you’ve earned it, then it’s yours and you should buy what you want as long as you can afford it.
    I know a lot of people who are not affected by this economic climate, but yet they no longer spend. To me that’s sad on several different levels.
