YOU'VE GOT TO READ THIS BLOG
I heard about this a while ago on one of my many subscribed forums, but did not take a gander. At the time I was wallowing in my own suffering and pain of being laid off. I just popped in because apparently the uproar is growing.
I can really relate to some of the sentiments on this blog. I did not date a banker, but in my business I had all of the big banks as clients and it was my job to figure out how to spend their money. I helped plan lavish events and some seminars, incentive trips and whatever else you can think of for these companies. When the partying stopped, so did my job.
I have always taken care of myself, and while I am not lamenting that my BF isn't buying me nice things, I am TOTALLY suffering from withdrawal in terms of being able to treat myself. I made a pretty good living helping people celebrate. Now that there is not much to celebrate, and the increased scrutiny over such expenses I am feeling the trickle down. Real life lesson on the economy.
Anyway, have a gander, it is delicious.
