I wonder if any of you are finding that there are alot of people in your area that are not aware or just don't want to know just how serious the economic situation is and how much worse it is going to become. I work in the public and have talked to people as they come in about things in our area, businesses that are closing, factories that are talking about shutting down, and I hear over and over "these things happen", its not that bad... I have seen worse... or the plain ole "who cares" shoulder shrug! It really boggles my mind.
There was a company here in town that has been here in business for over 25 years...gone...closed down just last week...no one seems to notice. I have made the comment to some people that things were only going to get worse, only to be laughed at...
Are people in denial or do they really not care? Have you experienced this attitude from people that you have talked to? Just curious and confused!
