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.
