Sometimes You've Gotta Laugh ...

A friend of mine has gotten into the habit of forwarding humorous e–mails to me.

Some are funny, some are kind of ho–hum.

He sent me one that I'd like to share with you. It's modeled after David Letterman's "Top Ten" lists.

"Subject: Just how bad is the economy?

The Top Twelve indicators of how bad the economy really is:

12. CEOs are now playing miniature golf.

11. People are getting pre–declined credit cards in the mail.

10. Now if you buy a toaster oven they give you a bank.

9. Hot Wheels and Matchbox are now trading higher than General Motors on the stock market.

8. The Federal Reserve met with a group of small businesses recently — GE, Pfizer, Chrysler, Citigroup and GM — to discuss the Stimulus Package.

7. McDonald's now has a 'walk thru' lane.

6. People in Beverly Hills had to lay off their nannies and are now learning their children's names.

5. The most highly paid job in Detroit right now is jury duty.

4. People in Africa are donating money to Americans.

3. Motel Six won't leave the lights on any more.

2. The mafia is laying off judges.

And the number 1 indicator of all,

1. If the bank returns your check marked as 'insufficient funds,' you have to call them and ask if they meant you or them."

Great post. I especially found it interesting. For this matter, once I discussed with one of my friends, not only about the content you talked about, but also to how to improve and develop, but no results. So I am deeply moved by what you said today.
