Ten Words I Think Should Be Banned in 2014   5 comments

Johnson, watching the ticker symbols flash across the big board noticed that his particular stocks were all trending down. He had invested almost his entire savings against the wishes of his wife. Being the gambler he was, including the tables in Vegas, he knew what he had to do to save face and perhaps make a few thousand if he were lucky. He needed to double down on everything or risk facing his own fiscal cliff. After all YOLO. Spoiler alert: If Johnson’s financial situation improved and his stocks performed like they were all on steroids then he could financially afford to actually knock a few items off his bucket list. No sir, no more kicking the can down the road for old Johnson. Take a selfie and hastag it:goodluckwiththat.
