In this Economy…

I bitterly hate people who use the idiom “in this economy” as a prelude to idiotic generalizations. We all understand that the economy is bad, but Jesus, please don’t use it as an excuse to fuck the neighbor’s dog. If you haven’t been laid off in the past year please do not blame your laziness or stupidity on the state of the economy. Take a look at how my life has been affected by the economy:
a) My brokerage account has shrunk but I still have a steady paycheck
b) Shit is cheaper. I went into a local clothing shop and asked for the price of a shirt. Before he even got the face value out of his mouth he crumbles and says “in this economy ill give it to you for half”
c) I got a lot of money back on tax returns
d) I had to fuck the neighbor’s dog for kibble and shelter
So as you can see I’m doing just fine. And in the future if the economy ever rebounds, remember, you can always blame it on God.
