Last week, I was at a friend’s house and I saw his cat aggressively avoid his cold hotpot. He told me a few weeks earlier he had jumped on it while it was on and now avoided it like the plague. And then I saw this…52% of consumers say the recession has “forever changed” the way they spend and save. But that’s down from 63% when the same survey was conducted a year ago.” In other words 11% of consumers haven’t learned a thing. WOW!
Are recessions good for business?

Do you play Cupid in the gym?
I think towards the top of jobs I would be terrible at has to be matchmaker. I don’t recognize compatibility among other people. I’d probably set Ken up with Raggedy Ann even if Barbie were my best friend. Bert and Ernie? I’d pair Bert and Bullwinkle. I might make a peanut butter and mayo sandwich when there is a perfectly good jar of Smuckers’ in the fridge. But I do know what I’m looking for in a workout partner…

Can the customer never be right?
There are literally thousands of businesses. Supermarkets, gas stations, office supplies, and Pier One Imports (I’m not even sure what they sell, it just looks crowded in there!) And here is the thing…our industry is one of the only ones that made it to TV. There are TV shows (Biggest Loser, and Heavy come to mind) dedicated to getting fit and healthy. In fact we have our own channel! Pier One can’t say that! Actually they may but since I don’t know what they do, I’ll just go with it.
