It was a tough year, but I made it!!!
It was a tough year, but I made it !!!
But not everyone is as lucky as I am...... - The economy is so bad that I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail. - I ordered a burger at McDonald's, and the kid behind the counter asked, "Can you afford fries with that?" - CEO's are now playing miniature golf. - If the bank returns your check marked "Insufficient Funds," you have to call them and ask if they mean you or them. - Hot Wheels and Matchbox stocks are trading higher than GM. - McDonald's is selling the 1 /4 'ouncer'. - Parents in Beverly Hills and Malibu are firing their nannies and learning their children's names. - A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico . - Dick Cheney took his stockbroker hunting. - Motel Six won't leave the light on anymore. - The Mafia is laying off judges. - BP Oil laid off 25 Congressmen. - Congress says they are looking into the Bernard Madoff scandal. Oh Great!! The guy who made $50 Billion disappear is being investigated by the people who made $ 1 .5 Trillion disappear! And, finally... I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, and our bleak future, that I called the Suicide Life line and was connected to a call center in Pakistan . When I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck.
