Like the rest of the world, Cool Town's economy isn't looking so good either. If it makes you folks in the real world feel any better, little clay people are, too, hard at work and getting the butcher block once the task has been tackled. People are overwhelmed, overworked, underpaid, over qualified, under qualified and plain ol' miserable with this little episode called "recession". People are turned down after countless hours of submitting hundreds of resumes to companies that just can't afford to hire them; all while the hole deepens.
The University of Cool Town recently sought out what Cool Towners think about the deficit that we are currently facing. The results were mind blowing! Let's just say, that in spite of your job not being your "dream" job, just be glad that you even have one to hate. There are plenty of people out there that are having difficulties finding a promising career or simply just a job of some sort. Believe it or not, there's a growing line of people who are more than willing to take your spot because Sally Mae and those other folks want their money.
So, next time you clock-in, keep in mind of how lucky you are to be where you stand. =) At least until the economy gets better.
