I received a job offer, and I’m taking it. Once I get the background, reference, and other checks out of the way, I will receive my formal offer.

The salary is a great one. It exceeded my baseline range by $3,000. Can’t complain at all. I’m pretty darn excited. It looks like good deal.

But I’m really nervous, as I’ve stated other places. Change makes things crazy.



Latest data provides more evidence that gasoline prices are eroding consumer spending

Ya think?

I mean, really, where do these reports come from? The first thing you hear is that gas prices, while going up, aren’t really stopping consumers from spending money.

Well, for the first the week or two, people have money stashed aside that they use to fill the tank, and it doesn’t really affect the budget. Once that money’s gone, the entertainment/frivolous budget goes, and people are buying less of the fun stuff to have money for gas.

And that’s what this article is about.

And I bet next we hear that consumers are cutting back on necessities and big purchases. Used stuff will be going quick. Blah. Blah. Blah.

What irritates me is that this stuff is common sense. I don’t need some bunch of experts doling it out. It’s logical. That’s my rant for today and I’m stickin’ to it.

At least until I have another rant.

Change makes ME crazy. But usually it's for the better. Just takes a while to realize it.

Good luck with it. Let us know how it goes. :)
