The downhill push

Posted By on Sat, Nov 28, 2009 at 9:25 AM

So we're off to the races with the finish line being Christmas. The propoganda of a new economy rising from the ashes just might inspire many of us to sink deeper into credit card debt, but I'm not buying it. I'm still slowly spiraling downward into financial hell and I don't see any kind of lifeline being thrown the little liferafts like me. The only ships being saved are the supertankers.

I didn't buy a single thing on Buy Nothing Day (the Friday after Thanksgiving also known as Black Friday). I didn't have any money to buy it with. I'm seriously thinking that this year's Christmas I'll only give my love and respect. It's the thought that counts right?

I like what Justin twitter's his father says on "Shit My Dad Says". Pop rails, ""Everybody's broke, so here's the rule for Christmas this year; if you still shit your pants, you get a present. Otherwise tough shit."
