Friday Flash 55-A little whining!

Up late again,
forgot to do the wash.
Find the cleanest pair and pull 'em on!
One advantage to being bald...

No time to eat.
Drive up window time.
Brilliant, best invention ever!
But the coffee sucks...

Working harder and longer.
Making less.
This is a tough business in tough times.
Where's MY freakin' bailout?

Happy Friday all! 55 words is all you need to play. No more-no less! Stop by G-mans if you want to play!

You are not a bad enough manager to get a bailout. Those are reserved for only the worst managed businesses. And then we don't replace the management but expect better results.

lime said...

lol...what myrtle said. you have to be so rich you don't need the bailout in order to get it.

Ya, mine too....I still say instead of giving the bailout money to companies to stimulate the economy, it would have worked better AND faster if the gov't passed out a cool million to ALL taxpayers. Would have been less cost too.

Oh well, whadda I know?

Love your 55. Thanks for the welcome today too. It was a fun challenge.

I think we will send you a Starbucks (if you are so inclined) or a Tim Hortons coffee as your bail out. But now you have to take a pay cut and generate a 1,000 page report and what you have done with the money since everyone got burned last time. That is unless you are a real big business than you get it free of regulations and red tape.

The bailout is just silly. The responsible get zip. The irresponsible or un-needy get it all.

Nice 55. By the way I had to pull that cloths trick earlier in the week. I have to wear a dress shirt and tie 3 days a week and I woke up with no shirt. I grabbed a shirt already worn, spot treated a little mess I made on the shirt getting the mark out then tossed it in the dryer (acting as my iron) while I got ready for work. I hit the drive-through but there were to many people lined up so I went without. Oh well.

Boy did this hit home with me!!
I've been saying for the past 2 years, I work twice as hard, for half the money!
Excellent 55 Mike....
Thank You so much for visiting, thanks for playing, and have a Great Week-End...G

I'm waiting for my bailout as well. Unfortunately, I've been working hard, spending responsibly, and paying my bills, so pretty much, I'm going to be penalized with higher taxes.

Donnetta Lee said...

Well, I don't even want to think about taxes. Hubby and I will pay through the nose-again. Nothing has been "handed" to us. We are poor kids who worked hard for everything. And there is no bailout. Oh, my. YEP, I'm whining, too! Neat thoughtful post, Mike. D
