Sir I need to let you know that our economy is in the toilet. You can try to put a hopeful face on it "oh, we have reached the summit and recovery has begun". Unh unh! Not yet we haven't and I have the ultimate barometer of the state of the poor economy. Yep, McDonald's Monopoly game.
I am, possibly, the only living adult who actually likes McD's. At least I'm the only one trashy enough to admit it. I actually seek them out if I haven't been for a week or so, gotta have some fries! Last year for Christmas one of my kids gave me an Arch card, kind of a joke but I loved it.
The Monopoly game started on October 6th and I am doing my damnedest to get Boardwalk for a $million, or at least a Shell gas card. It used to be that you bought any large fry, sandwich, drink etc. and there were game pieces attached. NOT ANY MORE. Now you only get game pieces on 5 items! You must spend MORE to participate! Actually the sign advertises 10 pc. Mcnugget also but I bought one the other day and didn't get a game pc. Grrr! I didn't even want that.
In years past, at this point in the game, I would already have collected game pieces for free fries, drinks and tons of hashbrowns. Can I get a witness? Not during this economic quagmire! Oh nary a hashbrown have I won. What's next? A pencil for the Happy Meal prize?
President Obama our country is in trouble and I wanted to let you know.
