Good News!

Good News! That is how a letter I got today from my credit card company.
I can request an increase in my credit card limit--instant!  No hassle!  Ask and it is mine.

Good news indeed.  And how lucky am I?  The opportunity to sink myself into debt is as good as winning the lottery.  Really, there is no need for me to want for a single thing.

So you won't be able to call me because I have no cell service...but I will be out shopping anyway.

  1. It is good to have a high credit limit, though. You never know when it might come in handy.

    1. See,to my way of thinking, using a credit card for an emergency is inviting a second emergency--paying it off. That's why I keep me cash in the mattress.:))

  5. I think you are a good candidate and they wish you would bite. Thankfully, you didn't. That's what shredders are for.

  6. Those of us with the seasoning years brings know better. I feel for the youngsters who really do think they have won the lottery.

  8. College youngsters when Bank of America sent an unsolicited credit card. (That used to be legal.) It took 36 years to break the credit card habit and to climb out of the deep, dark debt hole of increased credit limits.

  9. The worst ones are those that get sent to impoverished young students! Hopefully, they won't catch us wise old ducks.

  10. Keeping your cash under the mattress earns about the same interest as having it in a savings account and it is probably a hell of lot safer. You only have to worry about the local thieves breaking in your house...not the world wide thieves breaking in the fire wall at your bank.
