A Tale Of A Double Dip

Recommended Posts

The old man ran a burger bar at the side of the road. He saved enough to send his son to College.

His son came back in the summer holidays.

"Dad ! They told me at College there would be a "Double Dip" !"

"Gee, son. Business has been good and I was about to order more buns and more beef. What do you think I should do ?"

"Well, they say it will be terrible. No-one will be able to buy anything due to the Osterity Mergers."

"That sounds bad, son. Maybe I'll cancel my orders."

"Yes, Dad. And they say there be Fizzcal Cutbacks."

"Wow ! Fizzcal Cutbacks. That sounds awful. I think I'll only open on Tuesdays and Fridays instead of all week."

So, Dad cut back his orders and only opened two days a week.

And, what do you know ?

His cashflow fell to the point where he went out of business.

Moral: When the going gets tough...... the tough still need to eat their burgers.

Brought to you in association with the "You spend it, I'll print it" board of America.

Brought to you, actually, by MacDonalds. :)

This burger bar - does the old man want to sell it?

I can only give him 10% of what he paid for it, but I can employ him and his son.

$1 a day and a free burger.

A $1 a day and a free burger for the old man but an unpaid internship for his son.

Not worthy of a response.

This reminds me a bit of all the 'let's not talk ourselves into recession' stuff the media spouted around 2007-8. We don't seem to hear that any more!

No we don`t.

What we need to do is talk ourselves into "boom", just like we did before 2007.

What can possibly go wrong ?
