Re: Debtor vs Creditor

I'll bet there is some percentage who would choose debt anyway just because they don't have the discipline to prioritize long term over short term.

Re: I have decided

Re: Slither-Slather

Shirley Jackson wrote a book called "Life among the Savages" about raising her children and dealing with her husband. Her oldest son Laurie had started school, and every day he would come home and talk about a kid in his class named [more]

I have decided

that I am not going to ask any questions about how you avoid using the city sewer lines. I'm afraid you might answer, and I don't want to be in one of those TMI moments.

But I have two different views of you.

Re: Realizations

I am in credit card debt because I overspent. Not because I started a new business that ultimately failed and not because I was "simply helping someone out." Shockingly, I am just now coming to learn this, even though I am now a year [more]

Re: Don't tell me how to spend my money!

I once had someone at a Starbucks line pay for my drink. It was a drive-through starbucks in a strip mall. It was early morning so there were many cars in line. At one point, I kept some distance from myself and the other driver so as not to block [more]

Re: "born before 1980"

For some reason I keep thinking of the old battle cry of the 1960's rebels. "Don't trust anyone over 30." He's(she?) changed it to 35, but the idea seems to be intact.
