You know it’s a bad economy when…

Filed under: Economy — admin @ 1:02 am

Early this month I started reading Aftershock by David Wiedemer, his brother and Cindy Spitzer. Here are something interesting from the book.

“You know it’s a bad economy when…
1) Your bank returns your check marked as “insufficient funds” and you have to call them and ask if they meant you or them.

2) The most highly paid job is now jury service

3) People in Beverly Hills fire their nannies and are learning their children’s ┬ánames.

4) McDonalds is selling the quarter-ouncer.

5) Obama met with small business-GE, Chrysler, Citigroup, and GM–to discuss the stimulus package.

6) Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars are now trading at higher prices than GM’s stock.

7) You got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.

8) Your “reality check” bounced.

9) The stock market indexes have been renamed: the Dow is now the “Down-Jones” and ┬áthe S&P is the “Substandard & Very Poor.”

10) Webster’s is keeping its dictionary length constant by adding words that are commonly used, used as Twitter, tweet, and Facebook, and dropping those no longer needed, such as retirement, pensions, and Social Security.
