Sure in the lean times we don't get the nice bonuses we are used to but we get to keep our jobs because they don't squander away money when times are good because they know bad times are coming.
Common sense that seems lost in this day and age.

That would be a long drive!
The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you've got it made. -- Jean Giraudoux
