    As families face a new economic “normal,” they are shifting toward a cultural zeitgeist, perhaps permanent, that embraces financial conservatism.

    But mostly I just like to publicly tattle about people who irritate me.

    For example, people who invade my personal space. This happens mostly at Walmart while at the register waiting for my grocery total.
