MaineDog BS: The Bailout (520* d) RE: BS: The Bailout 27 Sep 08


Yes, its true, I am a "deadbeat" according to some, because I don't like to pay interest.
Credit card companies do nasty things to us deadbeats. One of them tracked my history, and concluded, correctly, that I wouldn't be home during a certain period last year. They confirmed their conclusion by noticing several out-of-state gasoline purchases in a row, far from home (BTW that's a great waltz...) Then they sent me a notice saying that my payment dates were being "updated", and I was now delinquent, and owed them a late fee. So I stopped using that account, and got several new ones. Now I spread my travel business around, to make it harder for them to pull this stunt again.

Its a jungle out there.

Osama finds all this very immoral, and wants do destroy us for our evil financial habits. The man isn't stupid you know, only somewhat misguided.
