When You Care Enough to Send the Very Best ... to the Unemployed

When You Care Enough to Send the Very Best ... to the Unemployed

Hallmark-the purveyor of greeting cards for occasions such as miscarriages and cancer-has tapped into a new market with a line of cards for the unemployed. Some of the gems include:

  • When things are looking kinda gloomy, do as I do. Stare into the heavens, breathe deeply, and say ... Give Me a %#!@$!! Break!!!
  • It's hard to know what to say at a sensitive time like this. ... How about, "I'm buying!"
  • One day, you'll look back on all this with the wisdom that distance bestows, and you'll say ... "Wow, that sucked."
  • Don't think of it as losing your job. ... Think of it as a time-out between stupid bosses.

According to the Department of Labor, our national unemployment rate is holding steady at 9.1%, representing 14 million people out of work. I'm guessing business is booming for Hallmark.
