And the circle has no end!!
fishducky; eventually there must be an end to it. Somehow.
Have to thing this one through, but it reminds me of notices at work.
.. this does need a bit of thinking about..... a downward economic spiral ..... do we buy more to keep stores in business and ourselves in debt.... or cut back our spending, get out of debt and workers are out of jobs... ??? I'm putting this in the 'Too Hard' basket.... great cartoon, River. xxxx
Much food for thought in that one. The multinationals don't give a tuppeny damn about the little people. Black humour today.
yep that is certainly something to think about. I hate the way that big corporations are forcing small businesses out of the market place and need less people to work in them. the same reason I don't like "self" scanning in supermarkets.Have a great week and thank you for stopping by my blog this week.
Elephant's Child; too true too often, and boxes don't last long as housing, one good downpour and they're mush. Andrew; you should do a post on those notices at work.Barbara; a lot of the problem began I think, when appliances were made of cheaper components and not made to last, so people would have to buy new each time something broke down, because it was cheaper than fixing the old. the there was the swing to a "new and improved" model each year and people, not all people but enough of them, were convinced they should upgrade. Of course the newer models were more expensive so hire purchase was invented, which exacerbated the problem because the newer models still broke down, but weren't yet paid for and so on and so on. It's a vicious circle.Mimsie; I was probably in a dark mood the day I scheduled this one. Some of those multinationals should think about the little people who did the grunt work and put them where they are. Jill Harrison; I used to work in a supermarket as check out operator. I could tell stories, but I won't because I have friends still there.
Big Box stores :(When greed and money prevail, so shall they, sadly.I yearn for good old fashioned paper bag stores.
