Crying "Uncle" - Another Symptom of The Economy

I just learned another sign of just how tough things are. People are crying "uncle." You heard it here first: People - whether they are employees, ministers, or politicians - are not willing to continue the fight.

A consultant who is just tired, doesn't feel like going through it all over again, simply rationalizing his existence - he's giving up. Not worth it.

The minister under fire for being too liberal or too conservative - it doesn't matter any more. He's finished fighting the fight. Time to sell insurance or retire.

The waitress whose kids are grown and out of the house is fed up with the hassles and attitudes. She's done. She's out of here.

Where do they go? The unemployment line. Or maybe they just live off the savings they have. Or maybe they sell some of their stuff and live off that for a while.

Doesn't matter, they're done. No more fighting. Not worth it.

More opportunity for those who won't give up.
