You know You’re In A Recession When…

- You hitchhike to work.
- You use your hair as floss.
- You start running out of interview responses so you quote Jeff Foxworthy when asked why you left your previous employer. “You moon the wrong person at an office party and suddenly you're not 'professional' anymore.”
- Your headhunter is in your Fave 5.
- Your dinner consists of samples from the grocery store.
- You use tape to hem your pants.
- You put a sign outside your cubicle that reads, “Will work for food.”
- Your real estate agent puts your house up for sale on eBay.
- You start eating the lunchmeat from your co-workers sandwiches.
- You call your financial broker and their voice mail says, “Please leave a message and I will return it as soon as I post bail.”
- You barter with your dental insurance company to at least pay for your top teeth cleaning.

How do you know you’re in a recession?

  1. Sounds like 'the good life' to me. Pure and simple and seamless of the economic doom, leaving way for freedom and cutting down on real costs to allow for genuine exchange.
