Nobody likes a complainer. Least of all, angry US economy-hating God.
A day after I complain about the personal finance straits I'm in (which I brought on myself, no doubt) and look what happens:
That's not good. I should have kept my big mouth shut.
On the plus side, I have managed to curb spending somewhat this week. To compensate for my wife flying solo in New York with the credit card, I'm taking an approach that is monk-like in more ways than one, subsisting on a diet of water, available vegetables and condiments eaten alone in the dark.
