today, mastercard tries to mess with my head! here’s a sober-looking note I found printed on this month’s credit card bill:
TO HELP YOU MEET UNEXPECTED FINANCIAL DEMANDS WE HAVE MADE THIS MONTHS PAYMENT OPTIONAL. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IF YOU SKIP THIS MONTHS PAYMENT, INTEREST WILL STILL ACCUMULATE.
that’s nice, mastercard. but what unexpected financial demands? i pay my bills on time every month, and this month is no exception. suddenly I’m getting cold sweats at the thought of a gang of mastercard thugs in black suits, bad ties and sunglasses showing up at my place with gasoline and zippos. credit card companies do wierd things. or maybe I just don’t buy enough stuff on credit, like DVD players, Playstations, fancy computers, phat speakers, flatscreen monitors, and so on. but why would I buy things I don’t really need when I don’t even have the money to buy them?
Oh yeah. BECAUSE THEY’RE SO COOL.
