Yep, the times are tough.

I am working harder than ever.
And grumbling lesser,
I see sleepy shopkeepers.
And apologetic shoppers.
I decide on 'some place small' for my anniversary dinner.
Gifts or gifting don't feature however.
Queues in the ATMs get shorter.
And those in the bus stops get longer.
Everyone I know has some sad office story.
Yeah...things everywhere are getting pretty awry.

n.b.- “It’s really scary about the economy right now. So the way I’m playing my part in helping is doing a lot of shopping wherever I go.”

  1. Hilarious. She is a one-woman cash injection into our ailing global economy and the bain of all feminists in the last decade... great to see you blogging!!

  2. i know a couple of people like that in real life

  3. It is scary. Jobs and some money in a savings account sum up our real possessions - these are the only things that will produce recurring benefits. If even one of these go, the alternatives are extremely scary. Owner of PCO/STD/ISD booth in kolkata. Idli Dhosa seller in Kolkata - bongs may see it as exotic food.
