Real Life Problems

after battling back from my illness and the losses they covered I am at a point where I am almost feeling secure again. I have enough nightclub/bar business to sustain (along with squinneys income) the family and begin to build back my private, corporate and events business. However, faced with the price of gas and the threat of outright shortages... I'm not quite ready to take the hit of losing my club accounts. It would create a real problem. But people will stop going out.

This is one little slice of how this bullshit effects people in the real world.

What's your story?

And btw, since I am here for your enterainment I'm sure many of you can take this opportunity to point out that it is somehow a liberals fault, or how kotowing to terrorists like pussies will effect my business. or some such nonsense. You too are invited to enjoy.

The Sh!ttier things get the more people drink... they'll just car pool more.

You'll be fine until those damn liberals screw everything up.

There's a woman in town here who is making a killing in her bicycle shop.

have you ever tried riding your bike carrying two subwoofers, double 15 and horn enclosures, amp and mixers, laptop and cables?

Hell that doesn't even leave room for my stash....

I wasn't suggesting you purchase a bicycle, Bear, but merely pointing out the fact that the citizenry is being forced to pedal. Pretty soon those Flintstone cars will be in vogue.

well I have thought of getting one of those bikes with a big cart in the back seriously.... I love to ride and do everyday.... ride to the gym.... I live in a planned community with grocery store and pharmacy, restaurants and department stores within 2.5 miles.... I drive my truck strictly when I have to for work or when the car is not available... and we try to plan all errands in one trip....of course the kids want to use the car whenever possible but they are pretty good about putting gas in it when they do.....

I grew up without a car and I remember walking to the grocery store a few miles each way with my mother even in the dead of winter with the snow piled up.... it didn't hurt me....my youngest boy cub just recently rode a city bus and I'm not sure my girl cub would even know how....somehow it's considered a low class thing now....

I wish I could just get people to come to my house, drop 2.00 sing a song and then leave....I could run a 24 hour shift with me and the rest of the family taking turns running the equipment...karaoke on the fly.... for the no life no social skills loser on the run Laughing

I wouldn't worry too much Bear. During the 1930's Depression, bars and dance halls survived as other businesses collapsed. When things get tough people seek to escape their problems, even if it's just for an evening. Expensive fossil fuel certainly hurts the economy, but somehow people always manage to find a few bucks to party. However, you might want to save up for hybrid Toyota SUV to get around and offer a gas raffle (winner gets a free tank of gas) at your events - just as insurance and incentive.

IMOP gas prices will either lead to auto's phasing out ( for example, everyone might have to buy bicycles), or lead to a new source of energy, one that will most likely change our society.( the fabled water motor comes to mind)

We'll most likely be living in a nookeelur winter by that time though.

Bear,

You can always tow your butt up to the 'Peg for a while, til the partying resumes at its better gas-guzzling level again *oh it will, it will*.

Seems there are more Hummers and drunk drivers and karaoke and nightclubs then ever.

Hummers in the prairie. Cracks me up every time.
