Today's Sign that the Recession is Upon Us


You can get Per Se reservations on OpenTable right now.

The first sign that that I was acting in a recession-conscience way was that I filled my windshield washer fluid with one of those blue jugs and instead of pouring out the last 1/10th of the bottle that never fits I am now driving around with that stuff rattling around in the way back. Note to people who make that stuff, I would pay the same for 90% of the contents and would be happier than having to make the choice to keep the other 10% every time. I don't even mind if you use the potato chip theory and keep the same size jug and put less in it.

Question: Is this feigned outrage?

There's utility in that last 10%. You're driving along in a snowstorm and all of a sudden no more fluid comes out. If you're not close to a gas station you're screwed without the 10% reserve in the trunk.

This recession may save your life . . .

Yeah, well just you try getting into the Cheesecake Factory at the Cambridgeside Galleria. The Wife and I went there on Saturday night, and you'd have thought Hanna Montana was there giving out free iPods.
