Great Timing

Wow. Great timing to open a restaurant, eh?

Although, I have to admit (with a lowered head, eyes darting sideways) our sales are fine.

October has been a decent month for us. I’m reading these news headlines, and hearing reports on talk radio of the horrific turn our economy has taken, and I’m not sure it’s affected our town (yet?).

Personally, I’ve seen a drastic loss on some money that is tied up in the stock market, as well as my 3 scattered 401K plans (note: need to consolidate – soon!). Yet, I never really have had access to this money to begin with, so it’s not like I’m suffering or scared or stocking up on Top Ramen and canned beans.

When Chrysler and Pepsi and GM Motors and Yahoo recently let go of a ton of employees, it affected Michigan and New York and Sunnyvale, California. It didn’t affect Baker City, Oregon.

Our city’s major employers – St. Elizabeth Hospital, Marvin Wood Products, Natural Structures…. they haven’t let anyone go. They have no reason to. Business is still good, and their employees will still be paid their standard paychecks. They will still purchase their normal groceries, pay their normal utility bills, and still go out to eat / order take-out as often as they have in the past.

Some will be swayed by the media to stay home, to guard their expendable income. These are the same people that hide stacks of dollar bills in their mattress, all the while reading out loud the newspaper headlines to their household first thing in the morning, with their only intention to satiate their own conspiracy theories.

To this I say

    We just ate at Paizano’s yesterday! However, there was a major discussion on how many more square inches you get if you order a xlarge vs. a giant pizza. Calculators were used. You should really list that on the menu….

What can I say when the going gets tuff the tuff hire elves.
