My name is Reese Waters andI am a victim of the recession.
Because, as a comedian,
I miss having the city to myselfduring the daytime.
Now the city is crowdedall day long, right?
You know the economy is bad
when a 2:00 pm movieis sold out on a Wednesday.
You used to yell, "Fire!"in a crowded movie theater.
Now, just yell, "Job fair!"
It clears right out.
I remember when I lost my job.
I would dress in a suitto get on the subway,
just 'cause I didn't wantto announce to the world
that I've accomplishednothing today.
Now it's the opposite.You get on the train in a suit,
they look at youlike you don't belong.
Look at this guy.
Friggin' got him a "job."
I bet he paid his renton time this month.
Why don't you get up and givethat seat to a real New Yorker?
Which brings meto a quick rule of thumb.
If your schooladvertises on the bus,
you will never own a car.
Somethingto take home with you tonight.
