The Recession = A Good Excuse?

18 02 2009

We all know that we’re in a recession…Blah blah blah. So, there are folks out there who can’t do things because they simply can’t afford it. However, some of you are faking the funk as an escape route. Recently, there was an article in The New York Times talking about how people are using the recession as a way to get out of doing things with (or for) people. Interesting…

My opinion? I don’t think you should fake being broke just because you don’t want to buy a baby shower gift or propose to your girlfriend. While it’s convenient because the recession-talk is everywhere, it’s also a tad shady. If you don’t want to do those things, just don’t do it! 


Okay, let me get down off my soapbox…It’s lonely up here!
