Why I'm here....

Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.

A Plastic World

To live and die by the credit card. Is there anywhere these little plastic death by debt cards can't be used? I mean I was overly tired I admit it and I had to look four or five times to make sure I was seeing what I was seeing. I have seen debit and credit cards be used in restaurants. Most of them will easily let you pay for
your fast food heart attack on that little plastic money entrapment called a credit card. Low and behold though right there in our own cafeteria, one that now functions as a big break room, was a Coke machine that now accepts credit cards. So you can now buy a $1.35 soda and end up paying what $20 with interest for it? Anyway... I just thought this was humorous. I mean what next - newspaper boxes?

Well, there have been days when it would have been nice if I could swipe my debit (Bank Account - checking) card to by a pop at work. I get there an no money on me to buy that $0.50 soda. My debit car works like a credit car. Yes, I agree, if you are using an offical credit card and the $0.50 purchase is more debt then it is a bad, bad, thing.
