The Soul Borrower

A Blog of Photography and my Lifeography

Fuck

I never really take political issues to heart. This economic shit is really starting to piss me off. It isn’t anything other than people freaking out over nothing. It’s caused by millions of American wankers who buy things on credit that they can’t afford.

I don’t feel that Obama has done anything to help. He’s spent trillions of dollars on god knows what and things haven’t gotten any better.

Normally, I just ignore the news and everything in order to annoy all the idiocy and bad news.

Now I no longer can.

My dad just told me that he is closing his business that my Grandpa started 33 years ago. He says that it isn’t making enough money because of the economy. He is going to try and find a job.

I want to tell him that he is being a fucking idiot. There are no good jobs to be had at this point in time. He’s made a lot of bad decisions in the past couple years, which is the reason we are in debt.

This is one bad decision that I cannot let him make. The apartment search is off, unfortunately, and there are much longer days ahead.

  1. Oh man, that totally sucks. I mean, I completely understand – businesses are folding left and right.

    šŸ˜¦

    Is there anything, anything, he can do to keep the business afloat? By “isn’t making enough money” does he mean it’s just not producing income, or that it is in total debt? Because if there is any way to ride things out, he should totally try and stick with it.

    And you’re right – him trying to find a job now would be like trying to find a taxicab after it starts raining in NYC. Its all ready raining on our economy, and unless a tidal wave comes along, the sun WILL eventually shine again. Dang, that was a stupid sounding metaphor. Sorry.

    what kind of business do you have?

  2. really sorry to hear about your Dad’s business and hope there’s some way in which he can kjeep it going, but sometimes the sensible course of action is to close down, no matter how painful that is or how long the company has been going for. trends and customer needs change over time.

    if you’re thinking of trying to help keep it afloat, make sure that it is the right thing to do long term.

    hope you can find a solution
