Inching Towards The "will Work For Food" Stage?

Recommended Posts

Just come back from ASDA in Leeds,

Man with camp chair sat outside his escort van with a 8 x 4 foot hand painted sign

Joiner seeks work

credit crunch rates

074*** *****

12 years experienced tradesman

Joinery, Tiling Desking, Plastering

all work considered

This echos the iconic hand painted 'will work for food' sign from the 1930's

Got to admire the initiative of getting 'first mover advantage' before we see this up and down the country

I think he should get a decent amont of work from this approach at this stage of the game

Also admire (if that's the word) the sheer blind optimism of anyone who thinks this is the sort of economic

environment to 'kick-start' house prices IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN

We have a full staff meeting at 4pm today and all 'water cooler chat' is of a pay cut, so i'm sure we'll all

be rushing out to pile into the housing market before prices start shooting up <_<

On another note, I am sure someone has mentioned this before, but there are a lot more roadside cafe vans these days

is that some kind a redundancy payout purchase thing?

Interesting post. I wonder if we are likely to see solicitors, accountants, ad men etc sitting out by their Audi's with signs in their hands.

Or even in 12 months - ex MP's?

Very possible. The middle classes, white collar people have been hit the hardest according to many reports I've read on this site. I understand from lawyers in the UK that all is dire. Poverty dire.

Go back and take a photo.

Send it into SKY news.

Watch the media frenzy unravel as Gordon tries to spin his way out of depression Britain.

It is spooky you mention this as this morning I saw three during my journey when normally I would have expected to see just one. I thought it was odd at the time but then discounted it until I saw your post.

Why doesn't it make sense?

If you have no money and can't afford food, you provide sexual services in return for food.

See how fast society can collapse? :(

Not a good time to start such an enterprise, no matter what the reason.

Wonder how long before we'll see will have sex for food?

I think you have to put it in the correct end to get any nuritional value out of it

& I wouldn't put mine in that end of a starving person.

"I ate out in a drive thru"

:unsure:

It would bring a whole new meaning to "survival of the fittest".

...though I don't see why two caravans should fight over the same layby - just move on to the next one!

The best laybys will get far more customers... more noticable laybys, bigger laybys with better parking, laybys with better access.

A few year back there were icecream wars, with people getting shot over ice-cream van routes.

Having the right location/route makes the difference between profit and bankrupcy.
