Vending machine logic

I know we aren't in a recession. Many important, powerful people have told us that much.

But some still persist in their insistence. Take the vending machine guy. A notice posted on our machines at work tell us the cost of food has risen 5.5 percent. I know that isn't inflation, cuz that would mean a recession and we aren't having one of those, you know.

But the cost of food is going up fast, according to the guy whose job it is to KNOW this information. But we aren't in a recession according to the guy who is supposed to TELL us this information.

All I know at this point, I am likely going to be spending my "economic stimulus" payment on a "carbohydrates and protein" package.
